This is part 3 of the third program with biodynamic agriculture educator, Glen Atkinson. The topic is How Steiner's Medical Lectures inform his Agriculture Lectures. If you are not familiar with Rudolf Steiner and biodynamics or have no motivation as a biodynamic practitioner to gain deep insights into the basic principles of biodynamic agriculture, then there is no reason to listen to this particular lecture series. This is a very heady program. As you will hear, Glen leaves me behind in the first 10 minutes of each segment. This is no reflection on Glen as a teacher. It's the topic, which for me, who, for example, is still traumatized by high school chemistry class, is hard to wrap the mind around ( or is it open the mind to? ) Any, if you are going to slog forward, Glen has provided some PowerPoint style graphics for this topic. They are at the show notes at www.bdnow.org. He has also provided a copy of his paper on Equisetum, which is referenced in the lecture. It will give you a good idea of the concepts in this lecture in practice. The paper is also at the show notes for this episode at bdnow.org Remember, if listening to this podcast brings up any questions, you can ask those questions in the "reply" section of the show notes of this episode. Glen will be directly answering your questions posted there. If you're planning on going this deeply into a biodynamic practice, you owe it to yourself and, frankly, others who will read your question and Glen's response, to take advantage of this opportunity. As always, if you appreciate what we are trying to accomplish with these podcasts on producing food of the highest nutritional quality, please leave a positive comment at the end of the show notes AND PLEASE rate us with maximum stars at iTunes or which ever podcast distributer you use.

Our Guest today is New Zealand Astrologer, Gardener, Herbalist, Homeopath and Philosopher - Glen Atkinson, who has developed the agricultural and medical work of Rudolf Steiner into a rational and secular approach of being with nature while staying true to Dr Steiner's energetic indications.

In this episode Glen discusses Rudolf Steiner's natal chart and aspects of his biography.

Glen began working with Steiner's indications in 1976 and has made developments in several fields. His innovation and understanding of Steiner have come from recognizing the fundamental similarity between the traditional Astrological world view and Steiner's suggestions. Then, from experimentation and observation, a simple yet innovative theory of manifestation - The Atkinson Conjecture - has become the basis for many practical activities.

Glen is founder of on-line The Biodynamic College The ONLY college on the planet, where the whole of Dr Steiner’s ‘Agriculture Course’ can be fully understood.

INTEGRATIVE PHYSICIAN DR ROBIN MILLER  is the author, along with Dave Kahn, of "HEALED Health and Wellness for the 21st Century Wisdom, Secrets and Fun from the Leading Edge."

Integrative medicine uses conventional medicine and natural medicine as needed to heal patients. Dr Miller makes more use of prescription medicine than other healers we've had on Biodynamics NOW! PODCAST but she does it in a personalized way. What makes this 21st century medicine is she is able to use relatively inexpensive genetic testing to tailor effective prescriptions for the individual patient's constitution rather than use powerful drugs in a one-size-fits-all manner, which often promotes side-effects more than it does healing.

She's also all about bringing fun into healing. In this program she extolls the virtues of coffee, chocolate and ballroom dancing as part of a path of dynamic healing and wellness

Welcome to Episode 43 of the Biodynamics Now! Investigative Farming and Restorative Nutrition podcast. Your host is Allan Balliett Today's guest is Elvira DiBrigit, author of "Why We Farm: Stories from Farmers of the Copay valley." An expert in sustainable living and farming, Elvira has profiled more than a dozen small, family farms in Northern California's Copay Valley in an insightful collection that shines a spotlight on the challenges and rewards of independent farming in the 21st century.

Capay Valley is a narrow slice of farmland nestled in the mountains of Northern California, just north of Napa. The area is home to more than 60 organic farms, one of the highest concentrations in the country. The rich soil produced by the rivers and creeks in the area provides ideal conditions for wine, fruits and vegetables and a booming olive oil crop

In 2000 Elvira Di'Brigit moved her family to Capay Valley, where her passionate interest in sustainable living took hold. While teaching she explored curricula surrounding farming, environmental preservation and nutrition - all in support of sustainable living. She is the editor of CapayValleyGrown.net and the author of WHY WE FARM. She also serves on the organizing committee for the Hoes Down Harvest Festival, a fund-raiser for the Ecological Farming Association. Elvira holds a BA in international relations from UC Davis, a teaching credential and a Waldorf/Steiner Teaching Certificate. She lives in Rumsey, CA with her husband and 3 children. An expert in sustainable living and farming, Elvira has profiled more than a dozen small, family farms in an insightful collection that shines a spotlight on the challenges and rewards of independent farming in the 21st century. The small/family farm was becoming an anachronism two decades ago, but the surge of public interest in organic and "locally-grown" food has inspired a new generation to explore farming and self-sustainability. The Capay Valley farming culture is a phenomenal example of how this once dying profession has taken on new life; Elvira Di'Brigit and her book, WHY WE FARM: Stories from Farmers of The Capay Valley, highlight the diversity of business models that have brought success to a myriad of 21st century farm. Capay Valley is a narrow slice of farmland nestled in the mountains of Northern California, just north of Napa. The area is home to more than 60 organic farms, one of the highest concentrations in the country. The rich soil produced by the rivers and creeks in the area provides ideal conditions for wine, fruits and vegetables and a booming olive oil crop. From Full Belly Farm – a 350 acre farm founded in 1985 as a pioneer in organic and sustainable farming – to the tiny 1 acre Cache Creek Lavender Farm, the farmers in the Capay Valley are a microcosm of 21st century sustainability and provide the lion's share of organic and toxin-free food and product to San Francisco's booming farm-to-table restaurants and neighborhood farmers' markets.

Elvira Di'Brigit has investigated and chronicled the production of real food while living in farming communities throughout Northern California and Hawaii. She and her family moved to the Capay Valley seventeen years ago and Elvira began teaching the children of local farmers, which allowed her to gain an insider’s view of farming as a business.

Even though Rudolf Steiner told us that malignant beings use the moment of a total eclipse to pass from the moon to Earth, Biodynamic astrologer Glen Atkinson is optimistic that Monday's eclipse could have a positive effect on what's currently going on here on Earth.
