Exploring Anthroposophy

“If we do not believe within ourselves this deeply rooted feeling that there is something higher than ourselves, we shall never find the strength to evolve into something higher.” – Rudolf Steiner


Anthroposophy is fundamentally a study of the human being, our nature, development and task.

The lens that Rudolf Steiner gives us is the view that we are spiritual beings living a physical existence. To better understand our journey through life he details our life’s phases and the development of our soul capacities, thinking, feeling and willing. In this sense, Anthroposophy is the tangible path of inner development and a spiritual-scientific lifelong study.

We are offering an opportunity for you to participate in a short course that will provide you with an understanding of the foundations of Steiner/Waldorf Education.

This course is for anyone with an interest in learning more about Anthroposophy and the foundations of Steiner Education, and is particularly valuable for all Steiner School support staff, parents, High School Teachers, and Teaching Assistants.

Module Overview

Term 1: Studying Anthroposophy – how to approach it (with recommended reading provided) and a movie discussion; background to Rudolf Steiner’s life and the first Steiner School; the threefold human being as Body, Soul and Spirit; the fourfold human being as Physical, Etheric, Astral and Ego; phases of Child Development; forum for discussion.

Term 2: The four temperaments of Choleric, Melancholic, Phlegmatic and Sanguine – understanding our own temperaments and others; The 12 Senses and how we experience the world; The three seven year periods to adulthood; the role of the adult in the development of the child.
