After Ascension Day is Before Ascension Day

For more than 15 years, bird lovers have been meeting on Ascension Day at Hof Michael in Endeholz/Lower Saxony. The guidance is always provided by Hans-Christian Zehnter from Dornach and Wolter Bos from Amsterdam

In the beginning, it was a small group of familiar friends. Now, it has grown into a seminar with people joining from the Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland. It is about looking at the bird world in a Goetheanistic-phenomenological way and immersing oneself in it, looking at the bird in the environment in which it shows itself. They also try to describe together what can be perceived in a bird: its stature, colors, plumage, flight, its call, and song. Where do we find the bird? What is the mood of the singing in the respective region? All participants express their perceptions informally, and it pleases the whole person.

The conference begins on Ascension Day in the afternoon and ends on the following Sunday with lunch. The food is Biodynamic and the accommodations are simple and good.
