Works of literature can take us most directly into the realm of the psyche, and Shakespeare’s plays offer nothing less than the deepest exploration into the mysteries of the human soul within the context of the True Image of what it is to be Human. The challenge of evil in Shakespeare’s Macbeth takes us immediately into the intensity of this darkest of areas, daring us to look squarely at its character and even its meaning as, with courage, we enter the encounter.

This series will be recorded for those who wish to participate but cannot always do so “live.”

"Human and Planetary Health – The Responsibility of Medicine for People and Nature"
*This year there will be multiple new specialist conferences including: nursing, body therapy, psychotherapy, medicine and pharmacy, eurythmy therapy, therapeutic speech and veterinary medicine!!
The annual conference of the Medical Section in the second year of the pandemic focuses on the responsibility of medicine for humanity and nature. Human health depends on the health of the living earth. Contradicting this is the environmental record of most hospitals. Pharmaceutical residues pollute our waters. The working conditions of doctors, nurses and therapists are rarely exemplary for the health of patients.
The now widespread idea that there can only be comprehensive health if all areas of social, economic and ecological life are looked at together (One Health) shows how capable Anthroposophic Medicine is of connecting to the current situation!

The Mysteries of Healing: Realizing AnthropoSophia
“Love is the result of Wisdom that has been reborn in the I”
Join us for the Biennial Anthroposophic Health Association Conference in Kimberton, PA which will take up “Realizing AnthropoSophia”. The “Mysteries of Healing” theme was created upon reflection of the questions, “What do we need to heal in order to best therapeutically accompany others?” and “How can we better serve the good in each human-to-human encounter?”
Our three keynote speakers will be collaborating through the “Mysteries of Healing” evening lectures, practical teaching lectures and interdisciplinary case presentations. Each presenter will bring a case for the interdisciplinary case groups for open discussion and sharing of insights. The case discussions will be followed by mid-day talks to develop practical therapeutic imaginations. We will illuminate these topics through singing, therapeutic artistic activities, and an interactive workshop titled “AnthropoSophia: Connecting Social and Individual Health,” led by Raphael Knauf M.D. and Jan Goeschel, Ph.D. The goal of this workshop is to strengthen our ideal intentions of working with solidarity, freedom and equality in medicine and therapies.
The conference is open for members of the AHA as well as non-members who are familiar with anthroposophy. Join us in collaborating together for this most special AHA biennial conference in celebration of AnthropoSophia.

Please enjoy these videos by a colleague,Wen-ting Hsu, a school doctor in Taiwan, where there is now a a huge rise in COVID with an overloaded medical system. They are beautiful examples, and reminders, of how anthroposophic healing therapies are a deeply needed source of healing and that sharing these with each other and the world can in itself support the continuing healing of the world and the continued suffering from the current pandemic situation.
