About Anthroposophy

“Anthroposophy is a path of knowledge aiming to guide the spiritual element in the human being to the spiritual in the universe.”

Rudolf Steiner

Rudolf Steiner was born on February 27, 1861 in what is now Croatia and died on March 30, 1925 in Dornach, Switzerland. From his early beginnings as a philosopher, scientist and Goethe scholar Rudolf Steiner developed Anthroposophy, a far reaching and monumental project to re direct our increasingly materialistic culture along spiritual lines.

His insights were based on his ability to perceive the spiritual forces underpinning the physical and psychical worlds and this lead to profound contributions in a wide variety of fields. His legacy has entered into the spiritual heritage of our time and continues to have a profound effect on many movements and individuals today.

Over 10,000 institutions and initiatives have been founded that in some way work out of anthroposophy: schools (often called Waldorf schools), curative education schools (Camphill and others) social initiatives, clinics, doctor’s practices, pharmaceutical companies, biodynamic farms, banks, art schools, stage groups, businesses, etc.

At the heart of anthroposophy is a path of inner schooling that takes its starting point from modern, critical, subject/object orientated consciousness, and from there leads to a gradual awakening of 'imaginative', 'intuitive' and 'inspirational' form of consciousness.

Steiner's is a profoundly holistic and human centered world view that addresses many of the deep social and personal problems that we face today.
