The Mysteries of Healing: Realizing AnthropoSophia
“Love is the result of Wisdom that has been reborn in the I”
Ursula Flatters, MD, Marion Debus, MD, and James Dyson, MD
July 19-22, 2023 Glenmoore, PA
In the summer of 1923 in Penmaenmawr, Wales, Ita Wegman asked Rudolf Steiner if there could be a path for the mysteries to come into medicine again in our age.
In the summer of 2023 in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania, the AHA will hold a conference to find renewal on this path with one another.
We invite you to come to Pennsylvania to join us in celebrating this 100 Year anniversary!
Our three keynote speakers will also be collaborating in all aspects of the conference: “The Mysteries of Healing” evening lectures, practical teaching lectures and interdisciplinary case presentations. The case discussions will be followed by mid-day talks to deepen the practical aspect of understanding through cognitive imaginations.
We will deepen the topics in singing, therapeutic artistic activity, and an interactive workshop. This threefolding workshop, “AnthropoSophia Connecting Social and Individual Health” intends to connect us with our ideal intentions to work with solidarity, freedom and equality in medicine and therapies more practically in each region.
Conference Details: Check-in and materials pick-up for the 2023 AHA Main Conference Registration will be from 5:30–6:30pm on Wednesday, July 19th in Whitsun Hall of Camphill Soltane, Glenmoore, PA.

Meals: Breakfasts, lunches and dinners from 7/20/23 to 7/22/23 are included in the meal plan. A la carte options are not available. All meals are vegetarian with vegan and lacto-ovo options. Lunch is the largest meal of the day and supper is a lighter meal. It will be a hot summer so salads and fruits will be available in abundance. Our Philadelphia-based caterer, Mia Ormes-Dalton, specializes in nutrient-rich, organic, plant-based cooking. She has a deliciously creative menu in store for us. International flavors and local foods will be featured. All eggs served are pasture raised, biodynamic produce is locally abundant, and locally baked sourdough breads will also be served. A made from scratch daily snack will be provided for all participants. Water, coffee and tea will be available to all. Please bring your own water bottle to keep this conference as low waste as possible. Plan ahead if you want to purchase the meals, as last minute add-ons cannot be guaranteed. There is also an organic grocer and several restaurants within a 15 minute drive of the conference for those who decide against purchasing the meal package. Please be aware that the meal times are only about one hour long, so it will be most time efficient to eat with the group on campus.
