About Anthroposophy

About

Anthroposophy is a way of knowledge which undertakes to guide the spiritual in man to the spiritual in the universe. Anthroposophy does not seek to impart knowledge; rather, 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 headquartered 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 capacity as a School of Spiritual Science.
