Anthropo = human being, Sophia = wisdom


“Anthroposophy is a path of knowledge which leads the spirit in the human being to the spirit in the universe”

“Anthroposophy does not want to impart knowledge, it seeks to awaken life”

Anthroposophy embraces a spiritual view of the human being and the cosmos with an emphasis on knowing (rather than faith) allowing recognition of our humanity (anthropos), which has inherent wisdom (sophia) to transform both itself and the world using the human heart, hand and mind.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) created the society in 1923 out of the central insight that the human being incorporates body, soul and spirit, which finds expression in education, medicine, pharmacy, agriculture, different branches of the arts and sciences, and social structures.

A study of Anthroposophy provides the means for self-development of life in the modern world, beginning with applying our natural logical capacity for thinking to the spirit, followed by transformations into new realms of thinking, deeper feelings, and strengthening will-power.
