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.

The Karma Project: A Western Approach to Reincarnation and Karma
The Central Regional Council is very excited to be embarking on this new impulse in our regional work toward strengthening our understanding of Reincarnation and Karma.
We begun, in 2018, to study a collection of Rudolf Steiner’s lectures, republished by Anthroposophic Press under the title A Western Approach to Reincarnation and Karma, edited and introduced by René Querido.
In 2019 we started to study another collection of lectures by Steiner, compiled and edited by Margaret Jonas and Matthew Barton, and published by Rudolf Steiner Press under the title The Karma of Anthroposophy.
This will provide the study content for our work together in addition to inviting special guests to offer fruits from their research and work.
In order to facilitate our dialogue on these lectures, we have laid out a series of “Zoom” conference calls to which all members and friends interested in delving into this topic are warmly invited.
The audio-conference invitations will be sent out ahead of time for individuals to register or plan to call in on their telephones to join the call. The monthly Wednesday evening call will be an hour and a quarter from 7:15 – 8:30 pm CST (8:15 - 9:30 pm EST).
