Parzival Study Group For Adults

Parzival Study Group For Adults

Thursday, January 12th through Thursday, March 30th, 2017

(with a break on March 16th for the VWS Festival of the Arts)

Destiny, identity, relationships: These are leading themes of this medieval, yet modern story. Parzival’s quest for the Grail is also a search for himself and for a new consciousness of humanity. Out of that consciousness, initiative, fidelity to one’s chosen task and compassion for the suffering of another human being can awaken. This course will be a journey into those themes and questions that arise from them. Along the way we will also explore themes from our own biographies and from Waldorf education as these relate to the story.

These eleven evenings will take place at the Rudolf Steiner Center, 3743 Delbrook Plaza, North Vancouver. We will work with Wolfram von Eschenbach’s telling of Parzival, translated by Helen M. Mustard and Charles E. Passage: Vintage Books, ISBN 0-394-70188-7. Copies may be purchased for $19.95 at 32 Books in Edgemont Village, North Vancouver. Contact the Joe Stewart, the manager, to place an order: 604 980-9032.

The cost for the course will be $100. Please register by January 5th, 2017: 604 985-3569 by phone or by e-mail at
