Many have heard of Rudolf Steiner, often in connection with the international Waldorf educational movement which he founded. 

But few seem to know his significant contributions to the modern spiritual movement. Fewer still have actually read Steiner or are students of his unique perspective on the cosmos.
Steiner emerged as a leading figure in the European spiritual movement at the beginning of the 20th century at a time when the great spiritual movements that emerged in the 19th century in America: Transcendentalism, Spiritualism, and New Thought, were undergoing core transformations. From the time Steiner went public with the results of his spiritual research in 1902 until his death in 1925 there was almost always a stenographer present to record the treasures that Steiner was offering to humanity. Steiner’s spiritual research, which became known as Anthroposophy or Spiritual Science, touches on all aspects of the spiritual, physical, and social worlds, from cosmic evolution to the spiritual beings, progressive and regressive, inhabiting the universe with us, and the destiny of humanity and of the Earth which are playing out as Steiner foresaw 100 years ago.

This talk will provide a brief description of Steiner’s spiritual research into the beings of Jesus and Christ and their unique and earth-transforming relationship.

Phil Centers is currently a writer and communication and relationship coach. He is a retired teacher and school administrator. He has been a student of Rudolf Steiner and his cosmology since 1980. Phil is also a lifelong student of multiple other spiritual perspectives, including New Thought, A Course in Miracles, the Toltec mysteries, Christianity, Taoism, and Hinduism.

It is Phil’s pleasure to be able to share an introduction to Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual research with the friends of the New Thought Center of Hawaii.
