Anthroposophy is a global movement based on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. It takes many concrete forms in New Zealand within many varied educational, therapeutic and creative disciplines. Steiner schools and kindergartens, Hohepa homes, Weleda, Taruna College and biodynamics all bring Anthroposophy into their work.
Two threads work together within Anthroposophy: an expansion of perception and knowledge (spiritual realism); and, the development of individual responsibility for actions (ethical individualism).
Anthroposophy provides an individual path of spiritual development, visible in the arts, in social forms and practical initiatives.
Dr Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was a philosopher, scientist, artist, social reformer, writer, architect and scholar.
His thinking and teaching informs activities, organisations, initiatives and individuals all over the world working in diverse disciplines.

“For me the wisdom of human beings is what I’m striving to realise in myself and bring out in others. Through being able to access the literature I found a world where even when I am alone, I am connected and in union with the whole.”- Thomas Burton
“I think at the most basic level Anthroposophy has given me an incredible grounding, self awareness and sense of security that allows me to know the challenges in the world and equips me to meet those challenges with absolute love and understanding.”- Lisa Seidel
