Programs 


Dear Friends, 

The Programs organized by the Program Committee of our Branch are designed to familiarize our members and friends with the content of Spiritual Science and give them more familiarity with the essence of Anthroposophy.

We strive to provide our audience with the best teachers and practitioners in the field of Anthroposophy from around the world, who share their latest Spiritual Scientific research in the fields of medicine, agriculture, natural science, pedagogy, meditation, the arts, and more. Many of them have given presentations via Zoom to our memberships and friends this past year and plan to offer additional lectures hosted by our Branch in the near future.

One of our goals is to create a worldwide informal community of friends of Anthroposophy. Our audience includes members and friends of the Anthroposophical Society not only from our Chicago Branch, but from all over the world - USA, Canada, Brazil, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, the Philippines, Russia, Japan, India, and many other countries.

                                   Andrei Onegin, Program Director.



We warmly invite you to attend any and all of these presentations.  Please consult our Calendar for the upcoming schedule.  Additionally, we have recorded many of our past presentations and have uploaded them to our YouTube Channel. Please subscribe to watch unlisted videos.

It is through the generous donations of our attendees that we are able to continue to bring these inspiring and thought-provoking speakers to our engaged and enthusiastic members and friends.  Often there are suggested contributions, but we welcome and appreciate any offering.  Donations can be made at the time of the presentation or by going to our Donation page.

Thank you for your interest and support!  We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!

"When we take interest in another being, empathy awakens in the right way.  When, as anthroposophists, we set out to extend our interest ever further, widening our mental horizon, we promote a universal brotherhood and sisterhood of humankind."  

--Rudolf Steiner, St. Francis Lecture III, 1912
