               Anthroposophic Psychotherapy has its foundation in the image of the human being, raised from the Spiritual Science created by Rudolf Steiner. This image considers the human being as an individual formed by the physicaletheric, the psychic dimensions, and the spiritual dimension or I. This workshop is for those who want to expand the academic perspective, and are in search of a new integrative view.
               On this occasion the theme will focus on early childhood, education as the center for health. for further details, please see the complete flyer here:

Steps to an Understanding of
The Threefold Social Order
Sunday morning, Feb. 24, 10:00 a.m.

Waldorf School of San Diego
3547 Altadena Ave., San Diego, CA 92105.
with tea and snacks
               We will study together Rudolf Steiner’s lecture of April 23, 1919 entitled:
“Spiritual-Scientific Consideration of Social and Pedagogic Questions: Esoteric Prelude to an Exoteric Consideration of the Social Question I”
               As we celebrate this centennial of the Waldorf School system the question arises, what underlies the Threefold Social Order that Rudolf Steiner discussed during and after WWI?
               In this lecture we find the beginnings to an understanding of the esoteric realities underlying these three “spheres” illustrated above. If you are a Waldorf teacher or aspiring teacher, parent or Anthroposophical Society member, please join us in studying this lecture.
