What we offer...



Anthroposophy is a discipline of research as well as a path of knowledge, service, personal growth, and social engagement.  The word “anthroposophy” means “wisdom of the human being,” or, for us today, “awareness of one’s humanity.”  It was introduced and developed by the philosopher, scientist, and Goethe scholar Rudolf Steiner as a “science of the spirit.”  Anthroposophy is concerned with all aspects of human life and spirit, as well as humanity’s future evolution and well-being.

Anthroposophy takes its starting point from modern critical consciousness and our contemporary orientation towards technology and science.  It is a kind of schooling which leads to concrete experience of the spiritual dimensions of the human being and the world.  A path of inner development, Christ-centered at its esoteric core, its fruits are visible in art, social forms, and practical enterprises.  Over time, about 10,000 institutions and initiatives have been founded that endeavor to apply anthroposophy.

Study group3

Anthroposophy is a nonsectarian, nonpolitical membership organization supporting the development, communication, and practice of anthroposophy in the United States.   As a part of the Anthroposophical Society in America, the Los Angeles Branch seeks to nurture the life of anthroposophy in the surrounding area.  Our branch supports the individual path of self-development, together with the community path of social health and renewal in the light of anthroposophy.

Consider membership and ways to get involved. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to cultivate and support the spiritual and cultural

ANTHROPOSOPHY   (noun)   [an-thro-POS-o-phy]   The art and science of becoming more fully human.

Rudolf Steiner was born on February 27, 1861 in what is now Croatia and died on March 30, 1925 in Dornach, Switzerland.   His monumental achievements of drafting an alternative science, a new pedagogy, new perspectives in medicine and agriculture, and new forms of expression in both the visual and performing arts, have entered into the spiritual heritage of the present time.  They live in today’s cultural life as an impulse and an inspiration.

“Anthroposophy does not want to impart knowledge.  It seeks to awaken life.”  - Rudolf Steiner

Thank you, Tischia!  Welcome New Planning Committee Members!

Dear Members and Friends,

At the Annual General Meeting held on March 21, 2021, the membership elected Tischia Bluske to the position of Branch Chair for the coming year. Following her election, she chose members for the Program Committee (at present, they are: Joan Jaeckel, Roman Janczak, Gail McManus, Rajeshwari Rajamani, and Almut Schroeder); they have met twice since then, and have been busy planning a number of events to be held at our Branch building in Pasadena.

Recently, Tischia had regretfully to tell the members of the Program Committee that because of new circumstances, she and her family now find it necessary to move to Texas toward the end of June. Two members of the Program Committee volunteered to step forward and assume her duties: Joan Jaeckel and Roman Janczak. With Tischia’s confidence and strong support, the Trustees of the Anthroposophical Foundation of California met on May 31, and appointed Joan Jaeckel and Roman Janczak as Co-Chairs of the Branch for the remainder of Tischia’s term. At the AGM in March, 2022, new elections will be held.

Joan and Roman have co-authored a vision statement for their work with the Program Committee and for the Los Angeles Branch. In part, it reads:

“We see the Rudolf Steiner Community Center becoming an influential, welcoming, and accessible center of community in Los Angeles. We believe that the time for anthroposophy to join ‘others seeking the same goal’ in active spiritual-scientific inquiry is now. We believe the precious asset of our home on Martin Alley in Pasadena, which sits on Hahamog-na territory of Los Angeles, is an ideal place to house—and update for our time—the vision of Rudolf Steiner for an evolution of humanity through awareness-based freedom, healing love, and conscious action.”

Please extend a warm welcome to Joan, Roman, and the Program Committee for their initiative and their upcoming work; and an equally warm thank-you to you, Tischia, for all your efforts this spring. We wish you the best on your new adventures.
