The North American Anthroposophic Nurses Association is organizing a unique opportunity for integrating training:

  • Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing
  • Anthroposophic Home Care Course
  • Rhythmical Massage Therapy Training (modules 1–4, of 18 modules total)

This integrated training will be given in four six-day modules over two years in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania. The content of the training and process of learning 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.

In the training significant time is given to learning:

  • External applications of compresses and poultices, such as yarrow compresses to the liver and ginger compresses to the kidneys.    
  • Therapeutic baths such as footbaths, sounding washing, and oil dispersion baths.  
  • Rhythmical Einreibungen according to Wegman / Hauschka — a gentle application of therapeutic oils following the flow of body forms and processes that supports health and well-being. 
  • The Anthroposophic Nursing Process and the path of inner development of the nurse, therapist, and caregiver. This integrated training 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.  

Non-nurses receive a Certificate of Attendance in NAANA’s Home Care Course.
