We have begun the process of identifying individuals who live in and want to be supportive of The Working of the Spirit tour coming to their area. Those listed below have given permission for their names to be listed as supporters of the project. This list only indicates interest in seeing the project come into being, in the future we will be working with groups in each area as preparation for the tour. This will include elements of local community revenue sharing if the performances are successful.

When Angels Meet
Friendship Love and Understanding
Wherever and whenever human beings convene angels meet. As I understand it they are exchanging information to help the human beings understand and love one another. Maybe they also work to help the human beings accomplish what it is they may have gathered to accomplish.
Marke Levene, producer of the Working of The Spirit and Barbara Richardson, Coordinator of Foundation Studies for the Center for Anthroposophy in New Hampshire visited with communities and individuals in and around Tacoma, Seattle, Whidbey Island, Olalla, Renton and Port Orchard in March of 2015. The purpose of the meetings was to tell the story of the creation of a repertory of performing art works surrounding The Working of the Spirit. Or maybe it was for our angels to meet resulting in mutual understanding, friendship and love.
In the evenings Barbara, sometimes accompanied by Catherine Padley or Bonnie Freundlich performed the Hallelujah setting a reverent mood. Marke then simply sat down, told his story and recited the speech of Hillary from the scene in the Guardian of the Threshold where he is presenting the picture of the cosmic evolution of human consciousness and inviting the citizens into the Rosicrucian temple. Phillip and Pamela Boulding played music in Tacoma.
People listening then had an opportunity to ask questions or comment. At the end they were asked if they felt they could support this somewhat intimidating enterprise. Dozens of people put their expression of support in writing and many of their names appear on this page.
Catherine and Stuart Padley, Pam Engler, Sarah Sorensen, Holly Foster, Ruth Peterson, Bonnie Freundlich, Lawrence Houston, Joseph Greif, Chantal Hulet, Ronlyn from Whidbey Island, Pam and Phil Boulding all provided lodging, organizational help and/or meals during Marke and Barbara’s stay. Thanks to all plus those who attended and contributed.
Although Marke has spoken before larger and smaller groups over the past 2-3 years and a variety of friends have contributed cash and in-kind toward the project the Puget Sound Tour broke new ground on several new ideas. This tour produced the first cash contributions toward a local fund to guarantee potential losses due to a lack of ticket sales should the production be able to come to the area. It also produced the first people to volunteer to participate in making a contribution to the project knowing that it may never be produced but receiving a ticket or tickets if it does. Others simply threw in a donation or said sure, I support this and you can tell other people. All were acts of friendship and support.
It seems angels were working hard during these days. I presume they enjoyed themselves. More later.
