ABOUT US

We are an Anthroposophical Study Group, recognized by the Anthroposophical Society of America.  The mission of the Anthroposophical Society of America is to "support the work of Rudolf Steiner in the United States."  

We form circles and meetups to create avenues for Anthroposophical study, meditation, gatherings, artistic activity, and community support.

 

We strive to bring Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy and the Arts, workshops and retreats, and renewal courses to our community.  We reach out to others through newsletters, social media, and - most importantly - human  contact and relationships.

We are part of the Jacksonville Educational Community, a pioneering community of business owners, caregivers, teachers, and students seeking ways to connect with the wonders of the natural world and the evolving journey of being human.  

 

As a Florida nonprofit corporation, we are supported through a 501c3 fiscal sponsorship with The Playgarden, a magical preschool that has been serving the Jacksonville Community for over 25 years.  We are in the process of filing for our own 501c3 designation, and should have it in place by Spring 2022. We welcome your support.  Please visit our giving & support page for more information.
