«How can I find a sense of direction within myself at a time when everything is in motion and the world is constantly evolving and changing? How can I help to shape the world, bear the consequences and at the same time remain confident, free and relaxed?» This is how Edda Nehmiz, responsible for the coordination of the program, describes the goal of the Goetheanum Studies. The central focus is on building capacities for self-knowledge and a sense of commitment in the world.
The starting point for this is a clearer relationship with oneself. This is achieved by exploring the ideas of others, letting them resonate, independent study and the awareness of oneself. Through encounters with people from different cultures, the learning community also conveys insights and experiences about one's own character, which is not only individual but also culturally shaped. Rudolf Steiner's distinctive concepts and contexts serve to help us recognize and describe these experiences.
The Goetheanum Studies program aims to develop values, knowledge and joy in order to become active in the world.
