Rudolf Steiner is one of the great humanitarian geniuses of our age. He was a multi-dimensional human: a philosopher, an esoteric Christian who brought in new forms of arts, education, medicine, bio-dynamic gardening (to save the earth and the bees), a spiritual-science based on his clairvoyant capacities...and he gives us the tools to become esoteric students. He created the Christian community that either a man or a woman could be a priest, and was one of the first to speak out for the equality of women.
His thinking is vast, complex, multi-dimensional, deeply resonant with all things humanity has to deal with. His clairvoyant capacities allowed him to span great eons of time to witness the evolution of consciousness and stages of becoming the human we are today.
His extraordinary compassion, generous spirit and delightful sense of humor supported hundreds of students of Anthroposophy around the world.
Rudolf Steiner was born on February 27, 1861 in what is now Croatia and died on March 30, 1925 in Dornach, Switzerland.
The last years of his life, crowds stood outside going around the blocks, waiting to get in to hear a lecture from him.
His monumental projects of drafting an alternative science, a new pedagogy, new perspectives in medicine and agriculture have entered into the spiritual heritage of the present time. They live in today's cultural life as an impulse and an inspiration.
The philosopher, scientist and Goethe scholar Rudolf Steiner developed Anthroposophy as a "science of the spirit." An individual path of spiritual development, Christcentered at its esoteric core, its fruits are visible in art, social forms and practical initiatives.
