Anthroposophical Society in America
Organization devoted to the teachings of theosophist and
occult mystic Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) whose system of Anthroposophy
is concerned with ‘‘wisdom relating to man.’’ Steiner
developed his system of thought to speak directly to issues
of education, art, dance and body movement, natural
foods, and the religious life. The society promotes Steiner’s
thinking through a number of local and a variety of specialized
organizations such as the School of Eurythmy and the Waldorf
Institute (260 Hungry Hollow Rd., Spring Valley, New York
10977), the Bio-Dynamic Association (PO Box 550, Kimberton,
Pennsylvania 19442), the Rudolf Steiner Research Foundation
(Presidio Bldg. 1002B, PO Box 29915, San Francisco, California
94129-0915), and Weleda USA (175 N. Rte. 9W, PO Box
769, Congers, New York 10920).
Headquarters of the society are at 1923 Geddes Ave., Ann
Arbor, Michigan 48104-1797. It publishes the quarterly Journal
of Anthroposophy. The numerous books by Steiner are published
by the Anthroposophical Press (#3390 Rte. 9, Hudson, New
York 12534). Website
