"How is a social life possible for man if each one is only striving to assert his own individuality?” asks Rudolf Steiner in his book “The Philosophy of Freedom”

Individualization versus community building

In this day and age more and more people experience that in order to discover their own mission in life they have to reject traditional communities such as family, church, school or political party. After pursuing their individual journeys, there then often comes a point where a sense of isolation once again leads one to seek out community. Whether we live together with a partner, work with colleagues in a business or organization, meet with like-minded people to develop a life/work community or are simply involved as a citizen in contemporary society, in all these cases we strive to be both ourselves as well as part of community.

But asserting your own individuality is often frowned upon in our society. It is said that if everyone aims to pursue their individual development and purposes, then community would no longer be possible. We need leaders and followers, so it is said. But is this true? What does it actually mean to develop your individuality and pursue your own purposes? Could a community be created in such a way that each member is yet able to fully develop and express their own individuality within the community? Or do individuals just need to conform to specific customs and values for community to be possible at all?

You are invited to participate in a weekend seminar with Jac Hielema and Damaris Matthijsen where we will explore these important questions from several different angles, both at the personal and societal level.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Freedom and Community: A living exploration of Rudolf Steiner’s Philosophy of Freedom are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
