for parenting and community, for healing the Earth, for artistic and scientific work, and for building a new culture of freedom, fairness, and solidarity.

Community

Anthroposophy's far-reaching view of personal development and human evolution gives a new context for today's widespread egotism. We each need to gain inner freedom and self-reliance in order to be change agents and conveners of a healthy future civilization, one where the whole community and the individual are seen and valued by each other. Consider membership and ways to get involved.

Our Mission

The Anthroposophical Society in America (ASA) supports and furthers the work of Rudolf Steiner in the United States. We are an open membership organization that fosters self-development and inspired social engagement.

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.

An “open heart and comprehensive mind..."

Rudolf Steiner gave clear insights and supportive guidance for individuals of all kinds, inspiring creative work in many fields.

Educator, scientist, philosopher, spiritual researcher, “meta-thinker”? But also social reformer, artistic innovator, cultural activist, and initiator of a holistic, human-centered “anthroposophy”—that is Rudolf Steiner.

To learn more about this unique individual and his still-expanding impact we are creating a sister site RudolfSteiner.org -- it's online and growing every week.
