Mission of the Central Region Council

Welcome to the Central Region of the Anthroposophical Society in America website.

Regional activities within the central region are coordinated by the Central Regional Council (CRC) of the Anthroposophical Society in America.  The CRC is an initiative group rather than a governing body.  It has no legal or administrative responsibility other than to support the life of Anthroposophy in the central region.  The way in which this mandate has been taken up, through the years, is a reflection of the individuals who have comprised the council and also responds to the needs of the times in which we live.

The mission of the CRC is to help provide opportunities for human beings longing for the spirit to meet each other soul to soul.  The Central Region of the Anthroposophical Society includes members in states from Ohio to Texas, Mississippi to the Dakotas.  We see networking across this region, where many members live far from centers of anthroposophical activity, as one of our most important tasks.
