Anthroposophy

Anthropo = human being, Sophia = wisdom

WHAT IS ANTHROPOSOPHY?

“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.

The Nova Scotia Group is affiliated with the Anthroposophical Society in Canada and recognizes as members all registered members of the Anthroposophical Society residing in Nova Scotia as well as interested members in the Atlantic Provinces.

Rudolf Steiner’s Masterpiece: “How To Know Higher Worlds”

Bear River Farms November 6 – 9

Feel free to share this invitation with people who might be interested.

What is “How To Know Higher Worlds”?
This is the classic account of the modern Western esoteric path of initiation made public by Steiner in 1904. He begins with the premise that “the capacities by which we can gain insights into the higher worlds lie dormant within each one of us.” Steiner carefully and precisely leads the reader from the cultivation of the fundamental soul attitudes of reverence and inner tranquility to the development of inner life through the stages of preparation, illumination, and initiation.
Steiner provides practical exercises of inner and outer observation and moral development. By patiently and persistently following his guidelines, new “organs” of soul and spirit begin to form, which reveal the contours of the higher worlds thus far concealed from us.

Steiner in this important work becomes a teacher, a counselor, and a friend whose advice is practical, clear, and effective. The challenges we face in life require increasingly deeper levels of understanding, and Steiner’s text helps readers to cultivate the capacities for such insights and places them at the service of humanity.

This is Steiner’s most essential guide to the modern path of initiation he advocated throughout his life. It has been translated into many languages and has inspired hundreds of thousands of readers around the world. How to Know Higher Worlds has been admired by some of the most brilliant minds of our time.

Who is the Facilitator?
In 1972 Judy King and her first son immigrated to Canada from England and settled in Cape Breton Island, NS, where her two other children were born. In her early days there she first learned about anthroposophy and Waldorf education and became later a member of the Council of the Anthroposophical Society in Canada. Judy King was a founding teacher (and Faculty Chair) at the South Shore Waldorf School since the school opened in 1996. She describes herself as a lifelong learner of anthroposophy and is presently attempting to integrate her life’s learning into community life in Baddeck, Cape Breton, NS.
