Creating Inner Health
Issue 14: December 2022
Welcome to the Foundation for Health Creation Winter Solstice Issue!
This time is perfect for reflecting on our journeys throughout the past year and visualizing our next steps as we enter into a new one. The ancients who built Stonehenge purposely aligned it with the winter solstice sunset (as well as its summer equivalent), for sacred purposes. This is a time, when all over the world traditional and religious peoples celebrate the light, feast, practice fasting and gather with friends and loved ones in their communities. It can truly be a time of love, light and an inner re-birth of our higher selves. This event always aligns with the sun’s ingress into the zodiac sign of Capricorn, which stands as symbol of being proactive, disciplined and committing to the birth of new things in our lives and the world. As you scroll down this newsletter we hope some of the articles and podcasts inspire in you a sense of hope and good will for our common future.
From All of us at the Foundation for Health Creation have a warm and light-filled Holiday Season!
Call to ACTION: The People’s Declaration calls for the respectful collaboration between traditional, complementary and biomedical practices with the aim of achieving a person-centred and holistic approach to health. The healthcare we want focuses on the whole person, is participative, respects individual choices as well as cultural diversity and integrates clinical experience and patient values with the best available research information. Full access to traditional, complementary and integrative healthcare should be part of the right to health.

From the CALENDAR OF THE SOUL, by Rudolf Steiner
The spirit child within my soul
I feel freed of enchantment.
In heart-high gladness has
The holy cosmic Word engendered
The heavenly fruit of hope,
Which grows rejoicing into worlds afar
Out of my being’s godly roots.

The Gift of Three Kings – Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh – Experiences and Perspectives from a Biodynamic Gardner and Two Anthroposophic Doctors
by Jean-David Derreumaux, Dr. Steven Johnson, and Dr. Daciana Iancu
The three substances of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh are known around the Christian world through the traditional bible story of the three kings gifting them to at the birth of the Jesus child in the Saint Mathew’s gospel. Actually, these gifts call upon us to recollect even more ancient inner memories belonging to the Mysteries of old. Kings – wise men, magi, initiates – receiving heavenly guidance, carrying, and bestowing at the heart level, such symbolic substances which were believed to harbor cosmic wisdom and inspire creative impulses.
