Webinars & Events

Webinars, Current & Recorded

Initiatives out of anthroposophy work deeply with life's opportunities and challenges, and our growing webinar stream (most are available recorded after the live event) reaches into health, education, the environment, the course of our lives, the meaningful year, self-development, community and society.



Gathering with people of like minds and hopes can truly be a peak experience.

This summer young people will gather in Spring Valley, NY (30 minutes drive north of NYC) for Questions of Courage: Meeting the Challenge of the Times. This North American Youth Conference will unfold August 8-11 in the beautiful setting where the first anthroposophical summer school on this continent was held in 1933. Would you like to help young people attend? Click here.

Our next fall conference (October 10-13) will be in Atlanta. Please save the dates! You can watch or listen to the 2018 keynotes by Orland Bishop and Joan Sleigh, and read full reports online.

April 26-28, 2019, in Ghent, NY, brought our second conference on The Sacred Gateway: “Conscious Living, Conscious Dying, and the Journey Beyond — Creating Death-Caring Communities.” Participants report an extraordinary experience. Two series of Sacred Gateway webinars can give you some of the significant insights.

Other events across North America may focus on self-development, health, biodynamics, education, arts, social questions, science, or technology. Check the calendar at www.rudolfsteiner.org/calendar.

Local Events

There are hundreds of local and regional events across North America every year, many listed on our events calendar.

Check with local groups to find more talks, workshops, and weekly/monthly study groups where fresh insights come from others' questions.

Every gathering is a chance to meet others waking their potentials and striving for a future that is really worthy of us.

Worldwide Theme of the Year

Each spring from the Goetheanum is offered a focus of study and research that groups and individuals may choose to work with around the world. Still commonly called a “theme of the year,” this annual motif is now exploring the great meditative picture of the human soul given by Rudolf Steiner in 1923.

Reaching to beings of consciousness above and below us, it encourages us to deepen memory, intensify mindfulness, and extend our envisioning. A helpful booklet on this “Foundation Stone Meditation” is available in our store.
