Inner Work Path offers ways of engaging with the esoteric studies of anthroposophy as outlined by Rudolf Steiner. At the foundation of this schooling, which enlivens both ancient and modern practices, is the understanding of the evolution of consciousness.  Focus is placed on strengthening the human soul to fulfil the task of freedom and love to its highest degree.

New Year-long Course

Inner Development for World Development

Launched in May 2020, this EduCareDo experiential course outlines the various ways of working with inner development, along with various indications towards engaging with certain exercises and meditations over the twelve months of the course. Participants can begin any time and work at their own pace. Every month you will receive a new lesson including content towards understanding the inner development path and how to utilise the various methods of self-assessment to gauge for yourself where you are in this work and what you may need. There will be practical exercises suggested each month, so you can have direct experience as well as the opportunity to reflect on how the content resounds for you. This will help to deepen your individual insight into the inner schooling with which it would be most useful for you to engage. It will help you to orientate towards putting the time, energy, and attention you have in the most fruitful direction.

We can do nothing more helpful for the world's further evolution than to evolve ourselves. This is something that, in fact, we must do. And we have no doubt whatsoever that we must, the moment we perceive the truth about our own nature, and its relationship with the wider world.

Most of us believe that our potential for inner liberation and true freedom lies in thinner world of our capacities for thinking, feeling, and self-determined will. However, discovering how unfree we actually are has always been one of the necessary steps in awakenings on the inner development path. The foundations of our inner freedom, as well as our inner unfreedom are greatly influenced during the years of early child development. 

Our patterns of thinking, our feelings, and our will impulses are all influenced directly by the community in which we grow up. With our outer lives increasingly permeated by technology, we are now faced with the effects that technology  brings to bear on our inner lives, as well as its artificial influence on the development of our thinking, feeling, and willing. Technology is forming the future of our communities and, in doing so, extending its pervasive influence into our inner capacities as community members.

Spirit-led Community introduces spiritually healthy guidelines for lessening the negative influence of technology on the inner life. Through providing an understanding of the foundations of inner health laid in childhood as well as the path of inner development that can be consciously engaged with as adults, a way is shown for how new community life can lead us into a future when community serves to maintain and support the evolving human spirit.

“We must be prepared, as a collective humanity, with capacities and inner strengths enabling us to freely choose the form of community life that we determine to be needed for the future of humanity. We need to establish communities that area dedicated to human freedom – communicates in which the health of the community, the education of the child, and social life are imbued with impulses supportive of the cultivation of human freedom.”
