Frank Chester Lecture

At 1:15pm, in the High School Great Room, Frank Chester will be presenting a brief lecture, "How to Know the Unknowable: Art as Spiritual Scientific Research". Parents and friends are welcome to attend.

Frank will also be presenting a lecture Wednesday evening at 7:00pm that is open to the public as an opening event of the 2016 Biodynamic Association Conference at the Santa Fe Convention Center.

Frank Chester is an artist, sculptor and geometrician who lives in San Francisco. He has taught art for more than thirty years in high schools and colleges. Since encountering the work of Rudolf Steiner, Frank has been exploring the relation between form and spirit. This has led him to take up research concerning the number seven, and in 2000 he discovered a new geometric form never seen before. Putting this form through the alchemical transformative process of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire, many previously unknown geometric structures have emerged. This geometric form demonstrates a remarkable correlation to the form and functioning of the human heart. On the basis of experimentation with various related geometric forms and the movement of water in a vortex, Frank is uncovering indications concerning the relationship between etheric formative forces and the geometry, structure, and physiology of the human heart. Thus the form is called the Chestahedron, both after its discoverer and because the form relates to the geometry of the heart, which sits in the chest.

Lantern Walk

The story of St. Martin, who shared his cloak with a poor man, has inspired the tradition of a lantern walk, the sharing of lantern songs, a simple treat, and warmth with friends. Students in Early Childhood through Grade Three make lanterns in their classrooms and join their families in an evening lantern walk. The school often collects donated jackets and coats to give to those in need in honor of St. Martin.

Location: Lower School Campus
