Theme of the Year
"The I knows itself in the Light of Michaelic World Affirmation and World Connection"

The new international theme for the year is available online with multiple articles by the Goetheanum Leadership and others.

"The arc from Society to individual was continued in [this past year's] theme... In addition to 'world-affirmation' we would like to add 'world-connection.' By expanding the theme, the fundamental anthroposophical self-knowledge and self-development evolve to an active engagement in the world."Continue reading...

Using the Library...

If you wish to borrow books from the library or wish to become part of the Library Committee or simply would like to help as a volunteer, please contact Albert Spekman, or simply come during bookstore hours and ask the person on duty. The use of the library is free to current members. The library places over 2,000 books at your disposal. They are arranged into two sections: books by Rudolf Steiner arranged by title, and books by other authors arranged by author. We are proud to offer you a great selection of titles on varied themes: Esoteric Studies, Meditation, Inner Development, Reincarnation and Karma, Life after Death, Social Renewal, the Gospels, Nature and Biodynamics, and the Arts. We invite you to make use of this valuable resource. Procedures for borrowing books are stated on the linked page.

Sunday Crafts 

Enjoy Sunday Crafts Evenings, 5-7pm
Nov 1-8-15-22-29, plus Dec 13

Laura Tucker is offering drop-in arts and crafts evenings 5-7pm in the Bookstore each Sunday in November plus December 13th. There will be plant-dyeing, wet and dry felting, making a pair of felted slippers, plus some drawing and painting with plant pigments. The first evening (10/25) had spinning with a drop spindle and a simple pattern for crocheted fingerless gloves.
Bring your own supplies or buy from the bookstore, which offers beautiful fibers, hand-dyed with organic plants, from the Fiber Craft Studio, and complete spindle kits. This will be an experiment in creativity and casual fun, with reading from The Arts and Their Mission, by Rudolf Steiner. Feel free to bring what you may be working on, craft or drawing or painting. A donation basket will be out, but is not required for participation.
All are welcome, let’s gather on these dark evenings to share our warmth of spirit and work with our hands.

Art Exhibit

by David Taulbee Anderson
David trained with Gerard Wagner at the Wagner School of Painting at the Goetheanum. He received a painting teaching certificate from the Goetheanum and currently teaches watercolor with Rudolf Steiner’s training motifs in Manhattan. This exhibition records a stream of daily work based on original ideas carried out in the quicker and more direct medium of tempera on cardboard. The new paintings would not have arisen without long training and teaching with watercolors that opened up a relationship with the essence and the being of color.

Volunteer for Anthroposophy NYC!

We are always looking for volunteers to help support our work. We are currently looking in the areas of fundraising, calendar coordination, and the bookstore. Could you help?
