Essentials of Anthroposophy: Encountering Rudolf Steiner’s Philosophy, Path of Inner Development, and Picture of World Evolution

Friday, July 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - Sunday, July 21, 2019 @ 1:00 pm

Open to all

This new workshop, led by two dedicated students of anthroposophy, offers a unique opportunity to discover and explore the basic elements of anthroposophy and to reflect upon what Rudolf Steiner’s ideas have to offer our lives today.

Through presentation, conversation, and experiential learning, participants will delve into Steiner’s picture of the human being and the evolution of consciousness as illumination for a path of inner development. There will be ample open space for questions while exploring Steiner’s ideas in a spirit of seeking understanding.

Your workshop will include:

  • Large and small group discussions
  • Eurythmy as a social and artistic experience
  • Suggestions for further reading
