The Jasper School has developed practical working methods to get to know your own inner world, all through the senses looking to the inside. Here your soul is embedded in the activities of the organs, and in these are being stored your willing impulses and ideals. Here your soul is working through the different layers of your consciousness. Here also work your chakras, your inner soul senses that help you to develop higher faculties, which make you in the end clairvoyant, clear feeling and clear willing.
When you have discovered these paths and possibilities within yourself, can you learn to observe in the worlds of the life, the soul and the sprit within and around you, where you can get in contact with the beings that are active in it. These are the beings of nature, or elemental beings, and the angels of heaven and the Earth.
To these the following schooling paths have been developed:
The courses are being held either on request or planned, see to this the Agenda. Our Base is our farm in the East of the Netherlands. You can ask us to work on location. We offer you the following courses:
–Course Clay Modelling out of senses – a new path of yoga
There will be given impressions through one of the 12 senses, and with a series of directed questions one learns to find the way in the own inner world by experience. The path through the own being, through the feeling, organ/soul space, willing intention and ideals coming to the development of a virtue that helps opening up the chakras. Modeling exercises and deliberation.
Time: sessions of 3 1/2 hours, once a week. 12 sessions.
–Course Experiencing the organ processes
With the aid of measure types and directed questions one gets a feeling for the different organ processes and the possibilities these give in our consciousness to behave different, in such a way that we get tools to face better difficulties. Clay modeling exercises and deliberation.
Time: sessions of 3 1/2 hours, once a week. 7 sessions.
–Course The Development of Lotus Flower Petals
With directed biographical questions and clay modelling exercises one gets insight in the different virtues that lead to the development of the petals of the lotus flowers, therewith arousing our higher senses and faculties.
Time: sessions of 3 1/2 hours, once a week. 10 sessions.
–Weekend course ‘Working with cosmic sounds and rhythms in and around you’
We work specifically with sound and rhythm out of the personal horoscope to experience through these the force workings in soul and life body. Clay modeling and helps to open up the consciousness for the inner processes, and also to amplify these.
Time: a weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm. Saturday evening concert.
-Weekend course Find your Way in the Life World
The schooling methods as being given in the education ‘Son of Man’ will be given as an introduction.
Time: a weekend, Friday evening from 8 – 10.30 pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm.
–Schooling weekends Experiencing the Star Constellation Ideals out of the Organ Processes
Each time we experience one of the organ processes with the help of rhythms and the corresponding planet in the personal horoscope. Then we work with the star constellations that stand parallel to that planet proition. Clay Modeling of the inner experiences.
Time: a weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm.
–Courses Observing and Working with Elemental Beings
With the tuning of our soul on the growth of a plant by common singing, we enter easier into her formative forces. And therewith we come closer to the beings that form her. Modeling out the inner observations helps to get these more clear. Rhythms help us to get in contact with the different groups of elemental beings. A do-course that helps to bring your own slumbering observations into clear daylight, so that you can start to cooperate with thse beings.
Time: a day in the week from 10 am – 5 pm ; 5 sessions.
-Course Build your own Musical Instrument
Under the conduct of Nicolaas de Jong you can construct your own organical shaped string instrument : after a model from the Rune Instruments, in coherence with the own horoscope. These are based on the shapes of the star constelations. These give rise to organic shapes with specific sound spaces. Possibillities: lyre, harp, guitar, violin, cello. Other instruments in deliberation. Materials and tools are present. Wood can be ordered at wish. We work witj one or more of the seven wood types that are connected tot the planet qualities: cherry, elm, birch, ash, oak, maple and beech. Experience with wood carving not necessary. Enthusiasm though.
Time: A midweek from 10 am – 5 pm. Then 5 loose days at appointment, one day in the week. You can work at home on your instrument.

In the shorter educations the relevant methods for inner development are being applied to be able to develop the visioned observations and activities. These methods have been refined and tested for their safety and accuracy through many years of experience.
The educations will be held on our beautiful farm in the East of the Netherlands, or can be requested for on different locations. See for current or planned educations the Agenda.
The elemental beings in nature cannot be observed directly with our senses. By connecting to them through singing and movement out of your feelings, you can more easily contact these. Through modelling out the half conscious observations, you bring these more into the light of the consciousness. And thus you form a trace to these, and learn to cooperate. By learning to observe them in their habitat, and replace them if necessary, you help to harmonise the energetic landscape. In this education you learn to communicate with the landcape angel that controls them. Rituals with rhythm and movement help to this end. For more info click here.
Time: 5 days or a midweek from 10 am – 5 pm
Just like us, the landscape angels have seven organ systems, which you may discover with good observation. When we people work on these with ritualen, they may turn into chakras in the landscape, through which the inner observations of the angel, her elemental beings and also the other angels that are connected to her landscape , can speak themselves out in much easier. In doing this, we also work on our inner observational senses, the chakras. We then can better attune to the landscape angel, and help her when blockages may occur. Directed improvised common singing, modelling out of the observations and selfmade rituals may help with this. Working directed with elemental beings refines the workings of the chakras. And thus we work in landscape healing out of your own organ processes with your own chakras by directing towards the workings in nature. For more information click here.
Time: 5 days or a midweek, Monday – Friday from 10 am – 5 pm
At each time during the creation and development of our Earth and cosmos, angels from the celestial hierarchy, consisting of 9 spheres of consciousness levels, have been developed on through the acts they executed. As well at each time there have been stayed behind angels i their development, and started to oppose the regular development, in such a way as light casts shadows. The regular groups of angels each have a seizing point within one of the planet and starry spheres. The counter-angels each have become a sphere underneath of the Earths surface, so that there ar as well arisen nine sublitteral spheres. These angels are the cause of workings we perceive as counte-rstriving and most often negative for the development in the phenomena ad events in and around us. To get to know these, may learn us a lot about ourselves in our still not yet cleared-up impulses and feelings, and about the world around us. This at the same time gives us tools to work on ourselves and do something against the decay in the world. After a general introduction, we approach each part of the day one sublitteral sphere. This is preceded by recognising the working of that sphere on the own being and the double. For more information click here.
Time: 5 days or a midweek, Monday – Friday from 10 am – 5 pm, also some evenings
4. Working towards the seven-foldedness in your Organisation or Company
Each human organisition is being conducted by an inspiring angel, and he as 7 organ functions, just like us. If you learn to observe these within yourself, you can recognise these as well in your organisation or company, and reinforce or apply its structure where it turns out to be necessary. This can strengthen your organisation, to the interior as well as the exterior; you make more clear bottle-necks, and helps to dissolve these. This education helps you to recognise these branches ad as well apply them in an active way.
For more information click here.
Time: 5 days or a midweek, Monday – Friday from 10 am – 5 pm, followed up by a coaching traject if being wished for.

In these educations the methods for inner development come together, and the path to the inside and to the exterior are being walked alternatively, which enables a stable inner development. The methods have been refined and tested for their safety and accuracy through many years of experience.
The educations will be held on our beautiful farm in the East of the Netherlands, or can be requested for on different locations. See for current or planned educations the Agenda.
Starting point is Astrosophy, the new star wisdom, and practical elaborations of it by means of Goethean science of sound and form. More precisely, working with the Harmonies of the Spheres and their relation to our inner and outer worlds.
To get along with the life world means that you see the Earth as a field for development and learns to work with it in a transformative way. The social processes of the group are very important with this.
The artistic methods of goethean science with the help of common singing and clay modelling help to open up the soul and spirit for the realms of clear feeling / inspiration and of clear willing / intuition. This reflects on the insights of the imaginative consciousness.
During the education each participant makes an assay at home that is directed towards his or her field of work. At the end this is being presented.
There is a study syllabus for each block. No foreknowledge is required, but an open interest for the workings of the life, the soul and the spirit.
Organisation: A weekend each month, consisting of:
Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 17 pm.
Start (mos often) 1 hour introductory lecture;
Rest of the day practical work; living into processes and observations with the help of rhythms, singing and clay modelling.
Block I Introduction into the different life realms:
Clay modelling out of sense impressions; Introduction to Astrosophy; The 7 planet processes in man and organisations; 12 World visions; Elemental and colour beings in plants and the atmosphere; Elemental beings in techniques and their coherence with man
Block II Elements to the development of inspiration:
Elemental beings and landscape work; Petals of the Lotus Flowers and inner development – virtues as gestures; Astrophony and the inner limbs of the own being; Working with Sonic Horoscopes; Astrognomy and form studies; The Double, Son of Man and Life World; Working with kundalini
Block III Elements to the development of intuition:
Completing the landscape work; The 9 sublitteral spheres; Earth geomancy; The development of the observations on each one’s will being as a start to intuition; Sayings and gestures out of the Lotus Flowers; Star constellations as ideals; Planets and development; The Moon dance; Making and presentation of the own pieces of work
Time: 3 blocks of each 8 weekends, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm. The blocks are subsequent.

2. Working with the 12 warmth types
The twelve types of inner warmth are the tools of our ego, our spirit germ, to be able to be build out to a higher spirit beings; an angel or even higher. With these types of warmth we work all though our bodies, order, direct and transform these. We act through them in the world, for our willing is embedded in warmth.
In this education we try to get along with these warmth types and apply these, so that we accelerate our inner development with it, and act in a creative way. To act out of the good creates new spaces, connections and spheres. And ultimately transforms our cosmos of wisdom into the cosmos of love, the quintessence, the conscious warmth or the shamballa. To this aim we try to deepen the workings all through us as has been experienced in the previous blocks, with the experiences of the warmth types. A help is the horoscope as self-willed starting point for the own developmental being.
We try to follow the religious year, because this joins the development of the ego.
Time: 8 weekends, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm. As well some loose days, including Xmas Eve, Epiphany, Ascension Day and Pentecost.

In this education there is a directive approach of the four bodies that intermingle. In short, the spirit, or the idea, can be recognized as a musical motive, that is being carried by a scale, on a rhythm and in a measure type. In musical sense, this includes working with metrres and measure types in a directive way. Metres bring one in contact with different life realms, and measure types with organ processes, on which base the soul functions. Those are the inner reflections in time of the planet movements towards the Earth, which bring forth our organ processes. This inspirative path through the heart has become possible since the crucifixion of Christ in the life world in 1942.
The starting point for the music therapy is the within Astrosophy developed system of determining the birth horoscope on the problems and possibilities for personal development. Each part is approached in an artistically way of goethean science.
With the music here can be made sensitive the soul contents and willing gestures , and one can work on parts that are out of balance. Clay modelling helps to condense the inner experiences. This gives insights into processes of the own inner world, a sight one onesidednesses, weaknesses and new possibilities for development. We work with the lyre and singing, with rhythm and movement.
This education gives tools to work with clients on specific problems. We start with the own personal horoscope, which gives insights through sound experiences. This then can be applied to others.
With the music you work on the soul, with the rhythms on the life body, and with the measure types on the inner organs. Thus arises a palette of possibilities to work with clients in a directive way.
The first part of the education offers a muster of notions of Astrosophy, out of imaginative living in, through which in the birth horoscope can be read : the analysis of the bodies, the temperament, constitution, soul type, world vision, strong and weak organ processes, soul qualities and conflicts, and the direction of the karma.
In the second part of the education these elements are being approached musically in scale (sharp and church scale), rhythm and measure types. These will be experienced in communal singing, movement and dance. Hereupon these elements are integrated in relation to the personal horoscope, its planet positions and configurations.
In the third part there is exercised with the musical parts, and the inner experiences can be modelled out along directive assays that gee an insight in the own inner world of feelings, impulses, ideals and virtues to be developed.
There will be given an introduction to the lyres that were developed in he Rune Workshop and that each brings forth sounds of the Zodiac after its construction to the relevant star constellation. These can further refine the therapy.
Time: 8 weekends, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm. Or one day in the week over 16 weeks.

4. Educations to Earth healer
Do you feel the need to help with the transformation of men and the Earth? And inner growth through this? Let yourself educate to:
–Light worker – out of insights you can bring the forces of soul and of spirit on wounded places like in rooms, houses, on squares and open spots in a forest.
–Landscape healer – through recognising the energetica currents in a landscape and sensing where the bottlenecks are, you can learn to get these into motion again in cooperation with the landscape angels and their elemental beings.
–Transformer of men and the Earth – through acknowledging the willing germs of becoming in each being and phenomenon, you can help to realise these. You thus transform the earthly circumstances with and out of yourself.
-Each of these three more specialised directions is preceded by a basic education to Grail worker; the Grail is your inner developmental being, consisting of your spirit that works unto the soul and life body, and that transforms these gradually.
No other educations required. Those who have already followed other educations at the Jasper School can drop the relevant parts of these educations.
This one precedes each one of the more specialised directions below. Here you learn to observe inwardly; learning to know the own inner world of spirit. soul and life and the beings and workings that are hidden behind the phenomena in the world around. You learn to get along with the elemental beings in and around you. This basic education consists of:
-Observing the own inner world through modelling out the inner perceptions and feelings out of a sense impression
-Learning to observe in the soul world through the singing of colours
-Observing the four elements and the elemental beings that carry these along the growth of a plant; The elemental beings that work behind the elements of earth, water, air/light and fire. This deals with singing and modelling

The original bards, the Celtic musicians, rendered with their music and singing the history of their folk in images and feelings. Besides this, they could also communicate with the normally invisible creatures in nature and in the people, through the contact they had with these creatures from their soul and life forces. Through this, they could bring healing where needed. The development of these faculties only appeared after long schooling and exercising. Those who nowadays is being called a bard, does not have these faculties consciously present. He or she may well work on the feelings of the moisteners, and thus render a lot of the feelings life of the listeners. Most often such a person is called a ‘singer-songwriter’. The contact with the life worlds the Celts still had, you can find back in the beautiful interlace in their carved stones and woodwork. As well in their folk music you can find back these interweaving workings.
The Jasper School offers a schooling path to develop these inner faculties step by step. You learn to this to get to know the workings of the spirit, soul and life forces from out of the cosmos through sounds and rhythms. You learn as well to apply these workings on people, situations and energetic landscapes. These are a help to discover your inner faculties that are located on the chakras and conducted by the organs, and to develop these if needed. Through music you learn to communicate with angels and the beings of nature, to come into development with these and direct them if necessary. Through the practice in music-theatreg group ‘Via Natura’ you learn to handle these musical workings in a playful way. There is being improvised, we exercise in singing and with different instruments, and wake up the creative inner child that can grow out unto a mighty bard. One who has individualised anew the inner faculties of healing through music. How you are going to apply this, is your own responsibility. But it is sure that your creative and moral faculties will be awoken.
Learn to know your own inner musical faculties and help with the further healing of man and the Earth. Learn to work with musical instruments that are attuned to the cosmos.
Nicolaas de Jong has worked out the musical and schooling methods in projects of research in a goethean science way that stretched over 25 years, often together with other people, to the inner processes and in cooperation with the spirits in nature. He leads healing projects all over Europe and the US, and writes music and music theatre out of these cosmical-inner workings. He also writes books about these subjects (some of which have been translated into German and English), and gives longer schooling educations that help to develop the faculties of clairvoyancy, clear feeling/hearing and clear willing (imagination, inspiration and intuition).
1. You can choose for the shorter path, through practice. This means, you can start fast with music group Via Natura. To this, you first have to follow the educations ‘Music Therapy out of the Horoscope’ (16 days, spreidde over 8 weekends) and ‘Working with Elemental Beings and Landscape Healing’ (5 days). Furthermore there are the connecting educations ‘Working with the Chakra’s of the Landscape and within Yourself’ and ‘Working in the Sublitteral Spheres’. The education ‘Inner Development and Landscape Work’ (3 blocks of 8 weekends) is a good and more complete start for the bard school.
