The Anthroposophical Society provides a forum where people from all disciplines and walks of life can share their journey towards a spiritual understanding of life. There are initiatives, activities and organisations working out of Anthroposophy in all regions across New Zealand.
Two threads work together within Anthroposophy: an expansion of perception and knowledge (spiritual realism); and, the development of individual responsibility for actions (ethical individualism).
Anthroposophy provides an individual path of spiritual development, visible in the arts, in social forms and practical initiatives.
Dr Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was a philosopher, scientist, artist, social reformer, writer, architect and scholar. His thinking and teaching informs activities, organisations, initiatives and individuals all over the world working in diverse disciplines. In New Zealand this includes Waldorf Schools, biodynamic farming, Hohepa Homes, Weleda and Anthroposophical medicine, eurythmy practice and the adult education programmes run from Taruna College.
