Jonathan Hilton

Jonathan Hilton, has been a trustee of the Astrosophy Research Center since 1992.   He first met Willi Sucher in 1976 when a study group he belonged to in New York City joined another Los Angeles study group in Meadow Vista at Willi’s home for a weekend workshop.  As a new student of the work of Rudolf Steiner at that time,  Willi’s work added a new depth and dimension to Jonathan’s study of anthroposophy.  Though he had no previous interest in or connection to astrology, he recognized the importance of this new star wisdom as developed by Willi Sucher and Elizabeth Vreede out of anthroposophy. He requested a private study with Willi Sucher and the following year returned to Meadow Vista to live at Willi’s home and study intensively with him for one month.  In following years until Willi’s death in 1985, Jonathan had ongoing correspondence study with Willi and participated in other workshops with him in California and in New York City. For over 20 years, Jonathan worked with individuals on their birth asterograms.  He has taught courses and given lectures on astrosophy at various locations, including the New York Branch of the Anthroposophical Society, where he served on the Council and as Branch President; at the New York Open Center; and at Sunbridge College in Spring Valley, where he worked in admissions and was part of the faculty.  For many years he led an ongoing study group of astrosophy at his home in New York City.  With his recent retirement from a very full time job as Executive Director of a trauma therapy organization in New York City, he now has time to ensure that this important work of Willi Sucher’s astrosophy becomes available to those who seek it.
