What is Sheffield Steiner Group?

Sheffield Steiner Group is a community in Sheffield based around (but not shackled to) the work and ideas of Rudolf Steiner. Spirituality, Education, Agriculture and Philosophy are just some of the areas and topics impacted by Steiner’s theory.

 

The ideas cannot be summed up in a short paragraph, but freedom, applying the scientific to the spiritual and the spiritual to the scientific, and simply thinking in spite of modern materialism and consumerism are some key points.

 

If you are curious, click the button below to read more. Also, Information about Anthroposophy on this site is specifically written to be “impartial” and not to infringe upon your freedom. Don’t be too critical, don’t simply believe what you’re seeing. Think!

What’s the point?

The world is a mess right now, and if you’ve gotten this far, you probably know that. While we are not saying Steiner can fix every problem in the world, many of his predictions about politics and people nowadays have proven to be eerily true. 

Simply thinking about important things, being more in touch with ourselves as humans, and living in unity with one another are some of the things Steiner presented. At this point you may be thinking “What’s the catch?”, assuming that there is some sinister deal-breaker hiding under the curtain.

But there isn’t. There’s no racism, there’s no cult, there’s no outragous demands of money or time, there’s no expectation of adherence or belief. To read more about how to start “fixing” the world, search “Social Threefolding”

I’ve heard X about Steiner. Is this true?

People have said a lot about Rudolf Steiner. Many of it isn’t true; for example many news articles cite him as a racist, yet don’t cite anything he ever said. There are many things that he said,  that when taken out of context don’t sound the best. This could be done with anyone, and sometimes is.

This is a big topic, but essentially; He argued against racism and was fervently opposed to the Nazis, even though he lived 100 years ago he specifically told people not to reject mainstream science and medicine just to be contrarian, and he also was vehemently against dogma and indoctrination.

Please do your own research, and in the proper places! 

What does this impact?

Anthroposophy impacts essentially everything. It brings new, fresh insights to fields that have possibly laid stagnant or developed in ways that are not the best.

Obviously, we’re not looking for world domination, but if just some of the ideas here can take hold (we think) the world might get a whole lot better.

 

Why is Steiner’s name everywhere?

In his lifetime, Steiner was very clear about the fact that he did not want to be revered. Revering people over truth is not a very good thing to do. But the question still remains; what else could we do? Sheffield Steiner Group is a group of people inspired by the works and ideas of Rudolf Steiner and others, and we think this is the best name we can come up with. It has a ring to it.

To truly know the world, look deeply within your own being; to truly know yourself, take real interest in the world. Live through deeds of love, and let others live, understanding their unique intentions: this is the fundamental principle of free human beings.
