Facing Each Other: Freedom – Responsibility – Love
October 10 - October 13
In just a few short weeks, we will gather together in a community of consciousness to explore the themes of Freedom, Responsibility, and Love. Throughout our time together, October 10, 11, 12, 13, we will face each other and ourselves and bring our hopes for humanity and anthroposophy into the space between us. Fill the vessel we’ve created together by joining us face-to-face or across the country online.

Our planning committee has been so inspired by Marjorie Spock’s Group Moral Artistry–a beautiful exploration of the spiritual work of community and how being together, as we will be during this conference, provides an opportunity for a true spiritual deed.
Marjorie writes, “Rudolf Steiner tells us that the mission of the earth is love. Anthroposophy directly serves that goal. It does so not by commanding individuals who embrace it to change overnight from darkness-ridden, hating attitudes to love, but by the most painstaking search of reality whereby, little by little, reality’s true aspect is uncovered. Anthroposophy’s contribution is that it shows reality in a light that reveals specifically how the spirit works. And to see it in that illumination is to love it.”
