Instructional delivery format: 
Workshop Intensive
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: the participants will have met the Goetheanum and the Christmas conference of the anthroposophical society in 1923 as an archetypal imagination of community and society building into the future; out of that experience it is possible to recognize the being and work of Rudolf Steiner and his contribution to social renewal; in Camphill, one can then meet the unique contribution of Karl König to form a way of community living, as an expression of Rudolf Steiner’s intentions for a threefold social organism; explain the inner context of their work; reflect on and articulate their relationship to the life of Kaspar Hauser, to the impulse of Rudolf Steiner for renewal of the social life through 3 folding.


This retreat explores the theme of inner work and spiritual practice through study, conversation, and artistic activity, using one or more techniques. The retreat is a continuation of the Camphill Impulse I. More subtle and inner aspects are discussed to develop a deeper understanding of significant individuals and development for the wider context of the civilization impulse of Anthroposophy.
