GEMS Update

Geographically Engaged Members Study Group (GEMS)

Margaret Shipman, a member of the Anthroposophical Society and participant in the Encircling Light Conference, is engaged in an initiative to support those around North America who have to study spiritual science on their own.  In Margaret’s words: “The question of how to study together was answered by the knowledge that thoughts are real.  If we study the same material at the same time and study on the same day, we are literally studying together.  We light a red candle to remind us of each other and of our work together.”

This year the initiative is working with the theme “The Human Being”, and looks at man from both a physical and a soul/spiritual aspect.  The textbook is Rudolf Steiner’s lecture series titled Study of Man.   Margaret sends complementary material monthly for each chapter.

If you want to connect with this mode of study, you can contact Margaret at:, or by phone at (323) 462-7703.
