Workshop Intensive
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: develop the thought-picture of the super sensible preparation of conception and birth in the time between death and conception; explain the process at work in gametogenesis; characterize the four morphological phases in the developmental process of weeks one, two, three and four; describe the different dynamic qualities at work in these morphological phases.


This course is conducted as a workshop in the third year. It is based on an anthroposophically extended understanding of the human being. Students consider the embryonic period which lasts for three months from the time of fertilization to the developmental stage of the fetus, exploring different signatures of the manifestation of a fourfold being and how it works into the threefold physical manifestation of metabolic-limb, rhythmic and nerve-sense organization.
