This is part 1 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 behing in the first 10 minutes and 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 schlog forward, Glen has provided some PowerPoint style graphics for this topic. They are at the show notes at 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.

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.
