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.

Certificate Program

Biography & Social Art Certificate Program delves into the complexities of human becoming and questions of meaning.

Biography Work

Biography practitioners offer workshops and classes on a variety of life themes, infusing the learning process with social artistry.

Invest in our work

Many of us are hungry for a deeper sense of meaning in our lives and stronger connections to one another.

Directory

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

The years flow past in the stream of time

Leaving memories to human beings

And in memory the soul weaves together

Existence and meaning in life.

Experience the meaning, trust in existence

And world-essence will unite itself

With the kernel of your being.

Rudolf Steiner
