Rudolf Steiner was an Austrian social reformer, architect, and esotericist who founded Anthroposophy. He is considered the father of Waldorf education, biodynamic agriculture, anthroposophical medicine, and spiritual science. SteinerBooks publishes the complete Collected Works of Rudolf Steiner, as well as the work of contemporary authors expanding upon his thinking.

We are proud to be working with the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association! You can find all of our biodynamic books here.

Anthroposophy NYC is honored to host the SteinerBooks Spiritual Research Seminar After Party for the second year at our branch home, just a few blocks from the NYU Kimmel Center.

Following last year's well-attended and spirited evening, we'll again offer a meeting place for seminar attendees to gather after the weekend's events to enjoy warm company, live entertainment, biodynamic wines, and light refreshments. The party will commence shortly after the close of the seminar on Saturday afternoon.
