Joel Matthew Park

Joel Matthew Park is a Hermeticist based in Copake, New York. From 2011 to 2019 he was a life-sharing coworker at Plowshare Farm (a Camphill affiliate), farming and candlemaking with people from a variety of countries, ages, and developmental backgrounds. During that time, he earned a certification in Social Therapy from the School of Spiritual Science through the Camphill Academy. He is now, along with his wife Molly, householding at an elder-care house, Ita Wegman, in Camphill Village Copake. Joel has been a student of Anthroposophy since 2008 and a Christian Hermeticist since 2010. In 2015, he joined the Grail Knighthood, a group for spiritual practice offered through the Sophia Foundation. Through this, he met Robert Powell, whose work he had been studying since 2009. Since then, Joel has been working with him to continue the karma research Robert began in 1977, exemplified in works such as the two volumes of Hermetic Astrology and Elijah, Come Again. Joel has led two retreats titled “Tarot and the Art of Hermetic Conversation” (2017 and 2019) and given talks on the karmic biography of Anfortas, the Three Essentials of Camphill, and the Ideal Social Organism. Most recently he led courses on Astrological Biography and an exploration of Dieter Brull’s Creating Social Sacraments. His first contribution to the Journal for Star Wisdom was for 2018, after which he became editor of the journal, now the Star Wisdom series, the first volume of which was published in November 2018. A selection of his writings can be found on his website, “TreeHouse”:
