Philosophical Modules

Introduction to Anthroposophy: The relationship between Anthroposophy and Steiner Education; The 3-fold human being; The 4 lower senses; The Temperaments; The 4-fold human being.

Life Phases: Phases of development of child and adult, soul types and life crises as a pathway towards growth.

Introduction to Steiner Education: The Introduction to Steiner Education module will deepen the understanding of the human being encountered in the Introduction to Anthroposophy module and make connections between the curriculum and the methodology in Steiner schools with Rudolf Steiner’s indications of child development, particularly in the 7 – 14 year age group.

Social Forms: This module enables the students to understand the structuring of society in relation to social evolution from ancient cultures to elite globalization. It introduces Rudolf Steiner’s views on current social issues and examines the concept of a tripartite ordering of society; the economy, culture and rights and how it appears in modern society.

Goethean Science: Students examine through exploration of the principal ideas of Goethean science and through careful observation of natural and cultural phenomena – how this science is central to the development of anthroposophical spiritual science and Rudolf Steiner education.

Inner Development: This is an introduction to the Anthroposophical path of inner development and the module compares this path with other spiritual teachings. Students work with the rhythm of observation and reflection leading from percept to concept.

Evolution of Human Consciousness: In this module we ask the questions: What is the world and how do we describe it? What is our relationship to the world and how have we been shaped by it?

Visual and Performing Arts Modules

Painting and Drawing: Goethe and Steiner’s colour theories; Shaded drawing; Form polarities arising from elements and ethers; Working with darkness and light; Principles of line, dynamic and transition.

Sculpture: Practical experiences in observation and modelling; Metamorphosis of form and creative expression through clay.

Music: Elements of music: melody, harmony, rhythm, beat; Writing, reading, singing, listening and playing recorder.

Eurythmy: Movement as a creative medium for individual expression and for the expression of universal laws.

Speech and Drama: Working with language as a creative and formative force
