Today the General Anthroposophical Society connects many hundreds of groups, branches, and regional societies. They are composed of spiritually interested and engaged people in 78 countries on all continents. Anthroposophy sees itself as a science of the spirit; the Anthroposophical Society is concerned with the life, questions, and goals of its members.
The spectrum ranges from open discussion meetings to general issues of current events to specialised thematic working groups, from strictly spiritual science study groups to informal reading groups, to people from all areas of life and work who are committed to civil society.
The local or subject-related groups form a network in regional working groups, cross-regional initiatives and national associations (national societies). At the international level, they are united in the General Anthroposophical Society based at the Goetheanum (Switzerland). The General Anthroposophical Society supports the School of Spiritual Science as the “soul” of the Anthroposophical Society with its specialised sections covering various areas of life and work.
