The healthy social life is found, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection,
and when in the community the virtue of each individual is living ... Rudolph Steiner

What is Anthroposophy?

Anthroposophy is a way of knowledge which undertakes to guide the spiritual in man to the spiritual in the universe. Anthroposophy does not want to impart knowledge - it seeks to awaken life!

What is the Anthroposophical Society?

It is an association of people whose will it is to nurture the life of the soul, both in the individual and in human society, on the basis of a true knowledge of the spiritual world. The Anthroposophical Society in Greater Boston is a branch of the Anthroposophical Society in America which is part of the Anthroposophical Society headquarted in Dornach, Switzerland.

The Anthroposophical Society was founded at the Christmas Conference of 1923/1924 in Switzerland by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925).
The Society's principles can be found here.

Anyone can become a member, without regard to nationality, social standing, religion, who considers as justified the existence of an

institution such as the Goetheanum in Dornach, in its [--- Painting: Michael and the Dragon, Raphael, Louvre] capacity as a School of Spiritual Science. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all of our activities are supported by gifts and contributions. Typical contributions are $25 per individual or $40 per family per year. Some contributions are significantly more. Any amount of support is appreciated. Click here for current events.
