Our vision

The Vision is inspired by the practice of Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy – wisdom of the human being.  The Center provides leadership in social renewal and is a guiding resource for understanding the process of becoming in the human being and the universe. At the heart of this spiritual-scientific work is the picture of metamorphosis, out of which meaning may be found and trust in existence may arise.

Directory

We facilitate connection to and among other practicing biography work and social art throughout North America.

Destiny is the result of two factors,

which grow together in the life of the human being.

One streams outward from the inner depths of the soul;

the other comes to meet man from the world around him.

Rudolf Steiner
