Foundation Studies Encounter Programs Started, Still a Few Spaces Available


Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy Encounter programs are now underway in Thornhill on both Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

Last Saturday’s inaugural class featured special guest speaker, Professor Frederick Amrine (photo above), from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, who was in town for a lecture on "Rudolf Steiner as Architect" last Thursday at the University of Toronto, presented by the Toronto Branch of the Anthroposophical Society in Canada.

Who Was Rudolf Steiner Anyway?

The topic for Dr. Amrine’s talk in Saturday’s class was “Who Was Rudolf Steiner and Why Should We Care”, or at least that was the theme given to him by former RSCT Foundation Studies director Wendy Brown when he first spoke here some years ago on the life and work of Rudolf Steiner.

Paul Hodgkins will resume his teaching in Foundation Studies this coming Wednesday and Saturday. The Wednesday morning class meets from 8:45 am to 12:30 pm in one of the smaller rooms at RSCT. This schedule is designed to suit parents with children at the Toronto Waldorf School. 

Downtown Toronto FS Encounter Program

The downtown Toronto Foundation Studies Encounter course on Saturday mornings from 9 am to 1 pm at Waldorf Academy held its first class last Saturday. The program is going ahead but there are still spaces for late arrivals. Don't hesitate to contact the RSCT if you're just now able to decide.

Halton Intro Talk Still to Come on Oct. 8th

The Foundation Studies program in Halton is off to a later start with a free introductory talk on Tuesday October 8th at the Halton Waldorf School.

Each RSCT Foundation Studies Encounter program comprises 30 sessions and the tuition fee is $1,800 for the whole progrram. For more information see the Foundation Studies Encounter page on the RSCT website.

For those people who don’t live within driving distance of the GTA, either downtown Toronto, Thornhill, or Halton, there is also a distance learning program, featuring regular telephone or Skype sessions with a mentor. More info here. 

Coming Events

Professor. Amrine's lecture at the U of T last Thursday was one of a three-part series, "Spiritual Awakening in a Scientific Age", that will continue on Thursday Oct. 17th with a talk by the Reverend Jonah Evans on "Overcoming Meaninglessness, Burnout and Untruthfulness". The final talk in the series will be with Dr. Kenneth McAlister on "Metamorphosing Science's Core Paradigm" on Thursday, Nov. 21st. More on those events.
