This August, join us in exploring the twelve senses at an online conference celebrating the sixtieth anniversary of Karl König’s seminal lectures on the topic at the Threefold Summer School in Spring Valley (today Chestnut Ridge), NY.

This digital conference will be of interest to educators, therapists, students, and anyone interested in finding a direction toward solving the problems of isolation, fear, and social and environmental breakdown. The presentations, workshops, and discussions will guide us toward building a perceptual capacity for the being of another person – a capacity that is the basis for all healthy social interaction.

Registration for this summer’s online conference closes August 4. Visit this page to register, and this page to support twelve senses work at Threefold.

The international conference “Pathways to a Human Future: The Twelve Senses” scheduled for summer 2020 has been postponed until 2021. To receive updates on all Twelve Senses conference news, email and ask to join our mailing list.
