The Heart- Our Organ of Perception of Soul-Spiritual Qualities
How is physical healing strengthened from out of this source of strength?
How the principle of "Quinta Essentia" and the meditation for the nurses and caregivers is active within the human heart.
WITHIN THE HUMAN HEART THERE LIVES
IN RADIANT LIGHT
THE HUMAN WILL TO HELP.
WITHIN THE HEART THERE WORKS
IN WARMTH-GIVING POWER
THE HUMAN FORCE OF LOVE.
THEN LET US BEAR
THE SOUL'S FULL WILL
INTO HEART LIGHT
THEN WE WORK TO HEAL
THOSE IN NEED OF HEALING
THROUGH GOD'S SENSE OF GRACE.

Dear Friends of Anthroposophic Nursing Around the World
When we imagine the situation of anthroposophic nursing, when we collect news and thoughts from our colleagues all over the world, when we listen to the voices of those who are connected in the meditation of the nurses’ verse, then we find a very differentiated and colorful picture. There are severe attacks against Anthroposophy in many European countries, we regret a deep splitting in statements about pandemic and vaccination issues in the anthroposophic communities as well as in our families. We find the awakening of a global consciousness regarding ecological questions. And there are much more questions than answers.
We look on such amazing and encouraging events like the opening of the beautiful “Haus of Warmth”, an initiative of our French colleagues, or on the multiprofessional IPMT in Colombia with a Pan-South American group of nurses or an international online seminar organized by the University of Chile, or the public anthroposophic conference in Malaysia with more than 1.300 participants! We are at the beginning of long-lasting transformation process. We call it pandemic or climate change – and we know that these are the labor pains of the consciousness soul.
The IFAN Steering Committee invites you to an online three-hour seminar. The seminar will be held in three languages and three time zones.
In March 2021 many friends gathered to participate in an online program that served to connect and nourish us. We offer this opportunity again to all nurses who feel connected to Anthroposophy to join in the second annual IFAN worldwide online seminar.

The Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing is given in four six-day modules over two years in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania. The training will address the fundamental principles of Anthroposophy, extending particularly to the Anthroposophic view of the human being in health and illness and support of processes of care and healing. This course provides an introduction to the three-fold, four-fold, seven-fold and twelve-fold dynamic relationships of the human being, and of their practical application in nursing care and therapeutic support. Equally important to the practical applications is the path of inner development of the nurse, therapist and caregiver that elevates how we think, feel and enact our work to its highest potential. This aspect will accompany all of the practical work.
The training includes: 1) External Applications of compresses & poultices.
2) Therapeutic baths such as footbaths, sounding washing & oil dispersion baths.
3) Rhythmical Einreibungen according to Wegman/Hauschka — a gentle application of therapeutic oils working with the flow of body forms & processes to support health and well-being.
4) The Anthroposophic Nursing Process as a path of inner development of the nurse, therapist & caregiver.This Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing is open to all interested individuals to enroll.
At the completion of each module, Registered Nurses receive a Certificate of Attendance in NAANA’s Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing. Healthcare providers receive a Certificate of Attendance in NAANA’s Anthroposophic Homecare Course.
This Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing will apply for accreditation by the International Forum for Anthroposophic Nursing (IFAN) in the Medical Section of the School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. IFAN represents national professional Anthroposophic Nursing associations worldwide and serves to support and acknowledge training programs in Anthroposophic Nursing. It guarantees the equivalence of training and further training programs of all institutions that are closely connected to the International Forum for Anthroposophic Nursing in the Medical Section at the Goetheanum, see anthronursing.care/en/
