Stanley Messenger passed away on Sunday 17th March 2013.
"Like his good friend Sir George Trevelyan, he based his thinking, fundamentally Christ-centred in the deepest and broadest sense, on the concepts derived from Rudolf Steiner's Anthroposophy (Wisdom of the Human Being). Stanley preferred to call himself an 'anthroposopher' rather than an anthroposophist, as he was suspicious of all 'isms', which he felt ran the danger of limiting and confining one within doctrinal structures and styles of being." 
"Stanley Messenger is an octogenarian philosopher and metaphysician, dedicated to the healing of perception. He lives in Glastonbury, England, with his partner Gudrun.
"With an esoteric background in Anthroposophy, he is well known as an individualistic thinker in this and all areas of interest he pursues. He has worked in the theatre and in teaching, and in recent decades, apart from Glastonbury, he has lived in Languedoc, France and the Scots Highlands, making periodic visits to USA.
"He is amongst other things a cereologist, with many profound observations on the nature of the crop circle phenomenon, serving as a mainstay speaker at the Glastonbury Symposium. He has spent decades studying butterflies, seeing them as very special representatives of the elemental kingdom. His understandings of history, the natural world, human society and the cosmos are erudite and enlightening to all who hear his discourses."
