The Rudolf Steiner Centre Toronto Distance program is a one-on-one guided course of independent study and telephone conversations with your personal mentor. It is designed to accommodate challenges of distance and the exceptional circumstances of some of its participants. The full certificate program includes reading (approximately three hours a week) of ten assigned books by Rudolf Steiner and others, on-going journal writing and artistic development. This will be facilitated by 32 hour-long mentored phone calls with an experienced one-on-one mentor.
This course is divided into two parts:
Part I – Introduction to anthroposophy – 12 sessions
Part II – Advanced work with anthroposophy – 20 sessions plus a research project
