The healthy social life is found
when in the mirror of each human soul
the whole community finds its reflection,
and when in the community
the virtue of each one is living.

This is the Motto of Social Ethic.

FRAC : Edward Schuldt (6/25/21)

'The Beatitudes: the Archetype of the Modern Path of Initiation'

What is the hidden background of the Beatitudes that makes them the archetype of all modern paths of inner development?—and therefore of the path that I myself am following, regardless of how personal I have made it?

Over the next several months, Edward will present the Nine Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12) in their wholeness and in their individual significance. In this first evening, we will look at the overarching themes of the Beatitudes: the role of the Christ in the human soul; the call and response of the Christ and the Sophia in each Beatitude; the relationship of the Maitreya Bodhisattva to the teaching of the Beatitudes; and the distinction between creation and attraction in developing the qualities of soul that lead us from the isolation of material existence to life in the spiritual world.

And on this day following the Feast Day of St. John, we can also ask: What is the relationship of the Beatitudes to the Gospel of John?

Our breakout sessions and plenary discussion will center on the question:

What are the elements of my own path of inner schooling that express the power of the Christ and the receptivity of the Sophia as they are found archetypally in the Beatitudes?

In the following presentations, we will take up the Beatitudes singly or in pairs to discover how each Beatitude builds on the ones that precede it to lead us to union with the Christ, the Sophia, and the Divine Ground of the World.


Edward Schuldt began to work intensively with the Beatitudes in 2011. That work has centered on exploring the Beatitudes as they express the mysteries of the human constitution and relate to the evils dwelling in the sub-earth. Edward has been active in spiritual science since 1975, first during his time at the University of Chicago and then during his years in Camphill, the Waldorf Movement, and beyond. He is a member of the Anthroposophical Society, the First Class, the Camphill Community, and the Christian Community.
