HOST (IN GERMAN):
Greetings lovely viewers and welcome to today’s episode on Enlightening Entertainment where we journey to Dornach, Switzerland. This is the site of the Goetheanum, one of the wonders of modern architecture and world center of the Anthrophosophical movement. Anthrophosophism is a spiritual movement that began in German-speaking countries and flourishes around the world today. It is based on a belief in the existence of a spiritual world that is accessible to direct human experience through inner development. Anthroposophy strives to use a scientific approach in understanding the human soul and spiritual experience. Ms. Ester Gerster, General Secretary of the Anthroposophist Society in Switzerland, is also an educator, artist and tour director at the Goetheanum.
