Anthroposophy and the world-wide Anthroposophical Society

Anthroposophy is the name given by Rudolf Steiner to the modern form of humankind’s knowledge of the spiritual worlds.  Arrived at by disciplined scientific research into the spiritual world, Rudolf Steiner elaborated and articulated this knowledge into modern conceptual form for the first time, making it available to all of humankind.  Also called spiritual science, Anthroposophy does not contradict physical sciences but is a necessary complement.  

Often mislabeled as a philosophy, Anthroposophy’s significant cultural and scientific contributions are slowly gaining recognition. As a path for life Anthroposophy engages us as beings of body, soul and spirit.

The Rudolf Steiner Group of Eugene is made up of individuals brought together through the influence of Anthroposophy in their lives.  Members of the Rudolf Steiner group meet throughout the year for various activities.  The Rudolf Steiner Group is an independent and local part of a worldwide movement, the General Anthroposophical Society, headquartered at Dornach, Switzerland in a world heritage building known as the Goetheanum.  Locally and beyond, all people of goodwill are welcome to join this society, and one can explore membership in the United States through this link: < http://www.anthroposophy.org/membership>.

Amongst the many initiatives that have arisen from Anthroposophy are: Waldorf education (known as Steiner schools in Europe); Biodynamic agriculture; Anthroposophical medicine; natural scientific initiatives; performing arts initiatives including Eurythmy, dramatic and speech arts; visual and sculptural arts initiatives; social initiatives including financial initiatives; astronomical and mathematical initiatives.

This local events calendar is maintained by the Rudolf Steiner Group of Eugene for the benefit of all local community members who seek to study or otherwise include Anthroposophy in their lives.  All events listed herein have some kind of relationship to Anthroposophy, but listed events should not be construed as representative of the Anthroposophical Society or the Anthroposophical Movement per se.
