Anthroposophy, a spiritual science was founded by Rudolf Steiner and it is a philosophy (or as some claim, a religion) that sprung from the Theosophy movement.
Rudolf Steiner, was an Austrian philosopher, literary scholar, architect, playwright, educator, and social thinker, who is best known as the founder of Anthroposophy and its practical applications.
He characterized his system of Anthroposophy as follows:
”Anthroposophy is a path of knowledge, to guide the spiritual in the human being to the spiritual in the universe… Anthroposophists are those who experience, as an essential need of life, certain questions on the nature of the human being and the universe, just as one experiences hunger and thirst.”
The main focus of an anthroposophist is to be “more human” by becoming more conscious about one’s thoughts and deeds. One may reach higher levels of consciousness through meditation, observation and openness over a lifelong “quest”.
