About the Anthroposophical Society

Rudolf Steiner House, London

The Society is a worldwide organisation with its headquarters in Switzerland. Its main aim is to develop the spiritual science started by Steiner and to demonstrate how it can be a valuable, consciousness-raising and healing power, for both individual and cultural development.

The keynote of the Society is individual freedom in the spiritual sense. Membership implies friendship and support of the work, but involves no commitment, other than a recognition of the School of Spiritual Science, which was founded by Steiner in 1923, to provide a training in individual spiritual development.

Society activities

Regular lectures study groups and artistic activities take place at many centres throughout the UK. In London these take place at Rudolf Steiner House, where there is a lending library, bookshop and theatre. Further information regarding any of the activities can be obtained from the Secretary, who can also put you in touch with local groups of the Society.

Anthroposophical Society Summer Conference

NAVIGATING CHAOS - Through Uncertainty to Spiritual Resilience

Wednesday 2nd - Sunday 6th August 2017 at Emerson College

All Welcome!

Mindful that we live in a time of disruption where the old is dying and a new world wants to be born, it seems ever more important to explore the inner and outer dimensions of the challenges we face. Fake news and the marketing of lies, the promotion of fear and aggressive nationalism, and the selling of empty personalities as leaders have given rise to the term "post-truth" to describe the age in which we are now living.

How can we maintain a living connection with the spirit in all aspects of life? As we can no longer rely on external sources to learn the truth, we are challenged to cultivate our own soul capacities to find deeper inner and outer discernment to navigate the chaos of our time. How can we practice our soul capacities and become active witnesses to that which lives in the world, and use the resources that Rudolf Steiner has given to find our feet and our path within the chaos?

Our guest speaker Christopher Schaefer from the USA is co-director of the Centre for Social Research at the Hawthorn Valley Association, an author, adult educator, and a retired organisational development consultant. He co-founded the Centre for Social Development at Emerson College in 1974.
