This retreat introduces participants to working with the Point-Circle Meditation as a meditation for the inner development of the curative educator. This meditation was originally developed in Rudolf Steiner's Curative Education Course and is explored through study, conversation and artistic activities. Work with the Point-Circle Meditation leads to the development of empathy and inspirational creativity. Through its practice, meditative work becomes directly relevant to the work with people and their life situations.
