Upcoming Events

November 7-11, 2018 the Natural Science and the Mathematics and Astronomy Sections in North America will hold a major conference on Bridging Natural Science and Spiritual Science. Because of the expected size of this conference, it will be at the Threefold Educational Center in Chestnut Ridge, NY this year.  Click here to learn more.



Thus is the Natural Science of today the true basis for spiritual seership. Learn first by Natural Science to know the properties of air, water, and earth. Attain the corresponding inner faculties. Then, as you gaze into the airy, into the watery, into the earthy element, the astral light will stream forth. It does not stream forth like a vague mist or cloud; but so that we can read in it the secrets of world-existence and of human life.

— Rudolf Steiner, The Mission of Folk-Souls, lecture 5, 11 June 1910
