Deepening our pictures of Embryology, the first three years and the development of Walking, Speaking and Thinking. A workshop with Dr Lakshmi Pasanna

Dr Lakshmi was trained as a paediatrician with neonatology as her speciality. She started her career with newborn babies in intensive care and had a successful private neonatal intensive unit for more than 15 years. During this period she met Anthroposophy through Waldorf education. She was one of the pioneer parents and worked with the schools in various capacities as a parent, board member and founder member for one Waldorf school. Dr Lakshmi worked for many years as a school physician. She started an Anthroposophical Medical Society in India and serves this organisation in the capacity of President of the society. Dr Lakshmi also runs a healing and curative centre for special needs children, called Saandeepani, which is located in the city of Hyderabad in South India. She is presently travelling and giving her time for training workshops for parents, therapists and educators who are working with children from an Anthroposophical perspective.

Introducing Anthroposophy



What is the Human Being?  Who are we?


Rudolf Steiner’s insights create a multi-layered picture that open our minds and hearts to a richer understanding of these questions.


A two-fold approach explores the physical and the spiritual natures of the human being, sleeping and waking, breathing in and breathing out, sympathy and antipathy.

Expanding into a three-fold approach we explore the middle way between polarities: body, soul and spirit; thinking, feeling and willing; head, heart and hands.

In the four-fold human being we come to the physical, etheric, astral and ego bodies and see how these are expressed in the mineral, plant, animal and human kingdoms, the four elements and the four temperaments.


This is a wonderful opportunity to experience an artistic introduction to Anthroposophy including painting, sculpture, music and eurythmy.
