Anthroposophical Library

Rudolf Steiner wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures sharing his insights and method of accessing his knowledge. His writings and lectures present his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, methods of personal development, art and the implementation of his ideas into practical life.

Also available are publications by subsequent researchers who pursued his lines of thought into all areas of practical life.

Come and visit the Library and Bookshop and see what we have available.
