Mind and Body in the Womb -- How Do We Exist as Embryo?

  • 29 Aug 2017
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Portland OR


  • Public lecture, all are welcome.

An evening lecture by Jaap Van Der Wal. This lecture precedes the course "The Embryo in Us". All are welcome. General admission $12, pay at the door. This is a large venue so there will be many seats.  (This lecture is included in the cost for those registered in the 4-day Embryo In Us workshop.)

We did not develop out of the body (as main stream ‘brain philosophers’ nowadays seem to propagate), but we are beings of Mind, Motion and Matter (A.T. Still). “We made the body, cell by cell we made it” (Rumi). Approached in a more phenomenological way, the human embryo reveals not only who we are, but also what we are meant to be, challenging our modern reductionistic view of humans as ‘walking brains’ or bio-machines’. In a synthesis between modern scientific embryology and a holistic view of the human being, one may be able to see that the same forces that formed the body, are continuously at work throughout life. Those forces carrying the blueprint of health into manifestation: The Embryo in Us.    

LOCATION: Cedarwood Waldorf School, 3030 SW 2nd Ave, Portland, OR.
