Rudolf Steiner was an extraordinary genius, who made fundamental contributions in several fields, including education, agriculture, the arts, new social movements, medicine, and esoteric studies. Strangely, he remains almost unknown. His two best-known innovations are Waldorf education and biodynamics, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Take a flyer and explore new worlds! Come meet Rudolf Steiner. The course will include guest lectures on Waldorf education, biodynamics, and the new art of movement that Steiner called eurythmy.
