Anthroposophical Society in America

The Anthroposophical Society in America is a membership organization that supports the development, communication and practice of anthroposophy in the United States. Anthroposophy is a discipline of research as well as a path of knowledge, service, personal growth and social engagement.  Introduced and developed by Rudolf Steiner, it is concerned with all aspects of human life, spirit and humanity’s future evolution and well-being.

The Anthroposophical Society in America is a non-sectarian, non-political “association of people who would foster 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 Society welcomes individual members and recognizes groups including study groups and local/regional branches. It supports the School for Spiritual Science in North America, and the Rudolf Steiner Library, a mail-order lending library available to the public. It is one of about seventy branches world-wide of the General Anthroposophical Society founded by Rudolf Steiner in Dornach, Switzerland, in 1923.

Membership is open to everyone regardless of religion, race, nationality, social standing, scientific or artistic conviction.

Rudolf Steiner's abilities were so diverse and his work was so rich in inspiration and resources for others that the man himself is very hard to label (philosopher, educator, artist, social activist, esotericist, spiritual teacher, scientist) or even write about briefly.

For the first edition of being human magazine in Spring 2011 Prof. Frederick Amrine of the University of Michigan gave a satisfying contemporary viewpoint on the importance of Rudolf Steiner: "Discovering a Genius: Rudolf Steiner at 150."

During the course of his life, Rudolf Steiner collaborated with doctors, therapists, farmers, business people, teachers, scientists, and artists.

These collaborations, in turn, created Waldorf schools, biodynamic agriculture, new economic and social models, the Camphill movement, anthroposophic medicine and thousands of other public and private initiatives worldwide.

Other collaborations focused on the arts, creating new forms of expression in both the visual and performing arts, such as eurythmy
