A course with Seth Jordan and Robert Karp, in partnership with Threefold Driftless

“If you wish to achieve a goal that has truth and is filled with reality, there is nothing else to be done than to work in a practical manner out of the impulse of threefolding…
All of life’s institutions implicitly contain a threefold nature.”
~ Rudolf Steiner

Social threefolding seeks to balance and harmonize the cultural, economic, and political spheres of society. But how do we work with all three of these dimensions in our day-to-day lives? What does this look like in our homes, organizations, and local communities? And, even more importantly, how do we make our personal and local work fruitful for the larger social transformation that our world so desperately needs?


Two sessions: October 12-15, 2023, & March 14-17, 2024

$150-$300 for a single session or $250-$500 for the entire course


This two-part course will seek to ground threefolding in our direct experience through three kinds of activity:

  • Conversations, presentations, and study to deepen our understanding of current events and the threefold nature of social life
  • Biography work and social-artistic activities to help us refine our unique sense of social purpose and develop our skills as social artists and initiative takers
  • Theory U based exercises and collaborative research projects to deepen and support one another’s work and initiatives in the world

Through this course we hope to create an inspired learning community as well as foster a network of local threefolding initiatives. If you think you might want to take initiative in your local area, we encourage you to invite potential colleagues to this course.

Participants in both sessions of the course will have access to optional online meet-ups with guest speakers, collaborations, and one-on-one mentoring. If you can’t participate in both sessions, you’re welcome to sign up for just one.
