Becoming Human

General Anthroposophy

In the General Anthroposophical Section of the School of Spiritual Science, central questions of contemporary humanity and anthroposophy are researched and cultivated.

Spirituality begins with questions and intuitions. In our youth this search is pure and authentic. That is why we encourage young people to create spaces for discussion in order to find their own language and lifestyle for all that lies beyond words.

with Nature

Natural Sciences

As humans we are part of life, its very soul. It becomes conscious in and through us in animals, plants and someday in minerals. The next step is to understand nature, not control it even more but to discover its very essence.

To live from nature calls upon us to give her life in return. Life is relationship, so our task is to find and discover new life cycles where the earth nourishes us.

Ancient myths speak of thinking of human beings born from the stars and guided by them. Today, freed from the stars, a new bond can be formed with the universe, which can take humans beyond the sphere of the earth.

through Art

Performing Arts

Music, drama, dance, and eurythmy are all art forms of time. They lead us beyond time—it becomes space, panorama. The goal is the imagination, to seek and grasp what is eternal in the moment.

Visual Arts

Our spiritual nature as humans and that of all life becomes visible in painting and sculpture, which is beyond words and concepts. Here we experience what is spiritual, where understanding and feeling are united.

Literary Arts and Humanities

How a text becomes a poem, a shape becomes a sculpture, a picture becomes painting: that is determined by the "how." Beauty and truth come together. Here is the source for the quietest form of human happiness.

in the Social Sphere


Pedagogy befitting human beings helps every child to develop its own potential and to understand itself and the world. This type of education encourages children to awaken to what they have intended for life before it begins.

Social Sciences

We become human beings among other human beings especially when we cultivate community as a living being. If it is healthy, it cultivates soul and spirit and enables all individuals to grow and find themselves.

in Healing


Crisis and transformation are part of the journey to finding oneself. Therefore medicine should not so much seek to defeat the disease as to reawaken the natural health of the organism and give it strength and direction for self-healing.
