Subject: Southeast Biodynamic Conference

Dear List Readers,

Allan Balliett is getting out his program for the Charles Town West
Virginia Mid-Atlantic Biodynamic Conference September 29th through October
1st, which reminds me I'd better get the same sort of thing out there for
our Blairsville, Georgia Southeast Biodynamic Conference. I'm leaving for
Australia and New Zealand on Sunday and I'm likely to forget if I don't do
this right away. Both conferences will serve abundant biodynamically grown
food. At my own conference here in Georgia our field corn will not be ripe
and we won't have cornbread from it. More is the pity as it has grown so
amazingly well we are agasp. But if you want to SEE it you should come to
Blairsville. If you want to EAT it you will probably want to attend Allan's
bash in Charles Town. The crop should be most rich and abundant.

Anyway, here's the program. It looks like there is some slight hope that
our biodynamic trademark concerns will draw the principals to Blairsville
for discussion. Greg Willis will be there and so will Hugh Courtney. Others
are invited as honored guests. No doubt this topic will come up in our
panel discussions and it would help enormously to have all viewpoints
represented. Here's what there is of our program:

13TH SOUTHEAST BIODYNAMIC CONFERENCE

Blairsville, Georgia

THE METAMORPHOSIS OF BIODYNAMIC AGRICULTURE

Crawl like a Caterpillar
Break out like a Butterfly

Presenters will include but not be limited to

JOEY KORN, GREG WILLIS, MAZEBAH TAAHN, ADAMA MAWEJA, KARL MARET, HUGH
LOVEL, LORRAINE CAHILL, HUGH COURTNEY

SEPTEMBER 1, 2 AND 3
YEAR 2000!

ADVANCE REGISTRATION $200 (INCLUDES MEALS)

ADDITIONAL ALL DAY WORKSHOPS:

8/31 GREG WILLIS: BD VITICULTURE
Greg LOVES insect and disease problems as they reveal our errors. When we
correct these we get truly superior results, and particularly in wine
superior results pay. Greg insists biodynamics yields more and better
production at lower cost. One of the things behind this conference is
Greg's introduction of BD horn clay. It changes everything, awakening
biodynamics from its long slumber.

9/4 JOEY KORN: IN DEPTH DOWSING
Joey works with people to access their inner spiritual guidance more fully.
This is a good starting point for putting what one learns at this
conference into practice in everyday life. Many growers use dowsing in
their work. Some have gone beyond dowsing into open-eyed clear knowing. But
no one is better to help folks step onto the path than Joey. What a way to
round out the program!

ABOUT OUR PRESENTERS

HUGH LOVEL went from a career in psychology into agriculture and sought out
biodynamics--even though he didn't know it existed--because he felt
something was missing in his practice. This was nutritional support for the
nervous system, food with integrity and strength of character.

LORRAINE CAHILL's study of energy medicine led her to agriculture. It
proved an ideal area for her development and she has pioneered working with
pattern energies, the holistic, receptive, resonant, organizational fields
around us that usually are ignored or neglected in the prevailing view of
nature and energy.

MAZEBAH TAAHN got into agriculture as a result of his studies in alchemy
and personal clarity. He takes introducing master patterns to new levels
and opens new vistas of working with our wills into what Steiner called the
"objective feeling of the world." This high level agricultural alchemy
completely changes what we think of as practical.

ADAMA MAWEJA long president of Union Agricultural Institute with her own
public radio talk show out of Atlanta, has some serious thoughts for us
about Conscious Cosmic Citizenship. Are you thinking globally while acting
locally? How could you be so pedestrian, especially in this age of
metamorphosis? It is time to think more seriously about where we are going
with all this.

KARL MARET is a scientist and an anthroposophical doctor whose interests
range from our problems in economics and agriculture to the philosophical
foundations of how we know what we know. He has a presentation that leads
us step by step into acknowledging the inherent, integral, self-reinforcing
quantum nature of living organisms and their dynamic, resonant energy
patterns. Good visuals.

JOEY KORN left an entreprenurial career in the auto parts industry and
cashed in his investments for a new career leading people up the ladder of
perceiving spiritual truths. After raising the kids he and his wife, Jill,
are able to travel and teach. You think you aren't clear seeing and you
aren't clear knowing and you can't find out anything beyond your five
senses? Joey will teach you how to dowse. He'll help you get in touch with
that silent voice within that is so faint you've long ignored, invalidated
and suppressed its knowing.

GREG WILLIS with a masters in business administration and a career in
hospital administration, turned his passionate hobby of growing things into
a career as an agricultural consultant of an entirely new breed--someone
with a healthy, positive approach to every agricultural problem of whatever
kind. Greg's introduction of BD horn clay changes everything, awakening
biodynamics from its long slumber.

ABOUT OUR CONFERENCE

	This is our 13th Southeast Biodynamic Conference at UAI in the lush
Appalachian Mountains of North Georgia. Our market garden provides food
along with other BD farms, making this a wonderful food experience. There
is something about the number thirteen. As a Fibonacci Series number it
relates to organic growth and is particularly good for transformation.
Those who have been here previously will appreciate our metamorphosis.
About
Union
Agricultural
Institute

	Union Agricultural Institute is a bio-dynamic research and training
farm in the Southern Appalachain Mountains of North Georgia, founded in the
mid '70s.
	In the '70s and '80s biodydnamic methods and varieties were not
developed for our region. This we have done and must pass on. We  emphasize
balance, diversity, with production and marketing so regeneration pays.
	One of our fundamental tenets is we find out the most and prove the
worth of our methods best by relying on production rather than grants to
pay the bills.
	Conventional research often ignores the value of investing in
overall environmental wholesomeness. Experiments are piecemeal and not
integrated with production.
	Yet wholesome food production is as fundamental to a healthy
agriculture as it is to creating a healthy society. When food production
pays for research and environmental repair, the viability of one's methods
is assured.

Acknowledgments
	This conference is sponsored jointly by Union Agricultural
Institute (UAI) and the American Biodynamic Association (ABA) with
additional support from the Josephine Porter Institute of Applied
Biodynamics (JPI).
