The WISE (Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton) is a thriving young school offering a comprehensive program from Preschool/K to Grade 9. The school offers the opportunity for its parent community to engage in the study of anthroposophy*, as well as eurythmy classes and other artistic activities. The WISE is dedicated to enriching the life of the community through the celebration of seasonal festivals. For more information please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*The WISE Study Group:
This group originally began as a study group for parents and teachers of the WISE interested in learning more about Rudolf Steiner’s world view. It has now evolved to include members from the wider Edmonton community, including local members of the Anthroposophical Society. Our October to May meetings are usually held every second Monday evening at the school. We read and discuss lectures or books by Dr. Steiner. Having worked through a number of foundational texts in recent years, we plan to begin study (October,2020) of the lecture sequence The Fall of the Spirits of Darkness.
Please contact Greg Moore at email@example.com for more information.
Edmonton is also part-time home to the modular eurythmy training offered by Auriel Eurythmy in Canada and México – http://www.aurieleurythmy.org
Now in its 8th year, Auriel is currently (2020) offering a 2nd and 4th year training option. Regular classes for adults are offered by practicum students in the Edmonton area. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
"I met Anthroposophy 42 years ago in Kelowna, B.C. It was as though a door opened and brilliant light flooded around me. I soon recognized that Rudolf Steiner was my teacher and that Anthroposophy would be my guide and path through life."
"I felt starved at university, and the Society activities provided much-needed nourishment."
"It’s right for me to help keep anthroposophy alive!"
"I became a member as a free gesture to uphold and support the spiritual work of Anthroposophy. I was an eurythmy student in England, and felt inspired by the older generation, John Davy, who had just passed away and Eileen Hutchins and others and wanted to be part of this community too!"
"I joined the Anthroposophical Society, first in the UK , when I was a student at Emerson College. It seemed to me then in 1967, and has done ever since, that this deed is both a modest gesture of support for the significant work at the Goetheanum and the least one can do to honour the karmic privilege of having anthroposophy in one's life."
"I wished to express my gratitude to those who brought this wonderful gift to my attention."
"I became a member to support the work of Rudolf Steiner and anthroposophy in the world."
"Since I was born into an anthroposophical environment I've always been familiar with the most important aspects of it. But I only joined the Society after anthroposophy started to make sense. My wife, who came to anthroposophy through me, was also keen that we should join the Society."
"I always had an inner feeling that there was another world we have come from."
"I was already committed to anthroposophy. I wanted to support work being done."
"While a student at Emerson College, Foundation Year in the 1970s. I decided to apply for membership in the Society. Adam Bittleston was my study group leader and he encouraged me to do so. I have valued being a Canadian member of the society since then."
"When I joined I was living in an anthroposophically remote area of Canada and was looking to keep my anthroposophical connection alive. I was also ready to make a commitment to the Society and anthroposophy."
"I was encouraged by Paul Décarie after a year of participation in the study group."
"I was inspired by Rudolf Steiner's philosophy and the various initiatives that have a foundation in anthroposophy (TWS, Arscura School for Living Art, Hesperus Village, etc)."
"I wanted to be part of, and support, an organization that is spreading the spiritual truths so desperately needed in our society."
"I wanted to find a home for my belief in reincarnation."
"To contribute to anthroposophic impulses."
"To follow and be cued in, as to what’s happening within the Canadian anthroposophical movement. To support (financially) the Canadian scene and also worldwide."
"I began studying Steiner a few years ago. I did the first part of the Anthroposophy course with Hamo, and I made a trip to the Goetheanum. It then came to me that I wanted/needed to make a more formal commitment to the organization."
"For the moral support of being identified and included in the anthroposophical community."
