Like the term “philosophy”, Anthroposophy denotes a method of inquiry, a path of research, rather than a content or fixed set of ideas. Rudolf Steiner, who pioneered this path, once characterized Anthroposophy as an upside-down plant, with its roots in the heavens (the world of the spirit) and its blossom and fruit in practical life on earth. This “growing down” means that clear insights born of disciplined spiritual research can help us re-enliven the practice of education, health, farming, technology, and countless other areas of daily life.
What Is Center for Anthroposophy?
Working out of the science of the spirit pioneered by Rudolf Steiner, the Center for Anthroposophy offers innovative part-time adult education programs and summer courses, including Foundation Studies, Waldorf teacher education programs, and Renewal Courses.
Since 1995 the Center has supported schools worldwide by continually preparing and renewing Waldorf teachers and those who stand with them as administrators, trustees, parents, and friends.
Take a look at what we have to offer in part-time and summer courses for all those wishing to deepen their understanding of spiritual life and to further their own professional and personal development.
Plus a beautiful summer campus, the option of vegetarian meals, and scholarship assistance.
