September 2004 - Present.
Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: describe what a spiritual path of inner development could look like for a student of esoteric science; describe a number of different attitudes as requirements for an esoteric training; describe different exercises and how they are approached; explain their relevance to a path of spiritual development; and facilitate a study group discussion.

This course uses a study group setting, allowing participants to familiarize themselves with the content of one of Rudolf Steiner's basic books, but also to benefit from insights and the understanding of other study group participants. It focuses on a path of inner development, including exercises that allow the development of refined faculties of feeling, judgment, and perception and provides opportunities for in-depth engagement with questions of spiritual practice and inner development. Opportunities to facilitate the group discussion build practical social and communication skills.
