This experiential course addresses the inner longing many of us experience in our search for spiritual truth and understanding of our mission here on Earth. The path of self-development based upon Spiritual Science and presented in this course focusses on strengthening the “I” (the sense of Self) as a basis of all spiritual work with an emphasis on clear thinking, refinement of feeling and strengthening of the will.

There will be a series of themed workshops, each consisting of practical meditative exercises and a discussion of the methods used. The course is designed for people who are looking for, or have already embarked upon a spiritual path and are eager to consciously work on their inner development. The methodological and theoretical aspects are described in the talks. The themes of the combined talks and workshops are listed below.

Please note: All talks and workshops are based on direct supersensible observations of a large number of people.

What will you gain from the course?

The course offers an overview of the foundations of Anthroposophical “Spiritual Science” which can be experienced as something that nourishes the inner life, supports creativity, and helps participants to serve the world.

The main objectives of the course are:

  • Learning and deepening the fundamental aspects of Spiritual Science, its insights and methods.
  • Learning how to attain a higher level of awareness and mastery of our inner soul-spiritual life.
  • Fostering a moral development and enriching the life of the soul based on a core understanding of the Higher (spiritual) Worlds and man’s relationship with them.
  • Learning how to bring a positive and supportive supersensible contribution to the spiritual and moral development of the world.
  • Learning how to conduct effective and lawful experiential research in supersensible realms.

Every weekend includes Friday and Saturday evening talks and Workshops on Saturday and Sunday. In every workshop we will explore and apply practical exercises to deepen the topics of the talks.
