.Anthroposophical Society in Australia

The national bird of Australia - the Emu.What then is Anthroposophy? A religion, a cult, a set of rules or dogmas, a movement? None of these encompasses the reality. In fact, Anthroposophy is hard to categorise — it does not fit in any given frame and yet, it is alive. Rudolf Steiner, who gave it this name, said if he could he would give it a different name every day. It is possibly best to describe what people involved in Anthroposophy have done and why they have done it in order to understand its uniqueness. One thing is obvious: Anthroposophists often like to do things differently, not because of any principle of their choosing but because they think about things more deeply than a “business as usual” approach often allows. To do this you need conscious freedom and it is no surprise that Steiner’s seminal work is the “Philosophy of Freedom”. Not an easy book to read, yet a deep exploration of how we think by observing the act of thinking itself.

.The Christian Community

The Christian CommunityThe Christian Community is part of an international movement for the renewal of religion, founded in 1922 in Switzerland by the eminent Lutheran theologian and minister Friedrich Rittlemeyer, with the help of Rudolf Steiner, Austrian thinker and mystic. The Christian Community is a church centered around the seven sacraments in their renewed form. The text of our Creed, is a metamorphosis of the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds.
We are inspired by traditional Christian theology, the original work of Rudolf Steiner and by independent research and insights of priests and members. There is also room in this modern Christian theology to incorporate such ideas as reincarnation and karma, a truly cosmic conception of Christ, and the role of spiritual beings at all levels of existence. The Christ Jesus is recognized as the Guide and Redeemer who “goes before us” leading us to our true humanity.

.Center for Anthroposophy

The Christian CommunityLike the term “philosophy”, Anthroposophy denotes a method of inquiry, a path of research, rather than a content or fixed set of ideas. Rudolf Steiner, who pioneered this path, once characterized Anthroposophy as an upside-down plant, with its roots in the heavens (the world of the spirit) and its blossom and fruit in practical life on earth. This “growing down” means that clear insights born of disciplined spiritual research can help us re-enliven the practice of education, health, farming, technology, and countless other areas of daily life. What Is Center for Anthroposophy? Working out of the science of the spirit pioneered by Rudolf Steiner, the Center for Anthroposophy offers innovative part-time adult education programs and summer courses, including Foundation Studies, Waldorf teacher education programs, and Renewal Courses.
