Novalis Institute’s mission statement provides us with guidance for our work.
Please reflect on this mission statement as you complete your application.
Novalis Institute is an educational organization incorporated to provide adult education that honors the nature of the whole human being as described by Rudolf Steiner, Friedrich von Hardenberg (Novalis), and similarly-inspired philosophers. The organization provides opportunities for acquiring a strong foundation in adult development through inner work and personal biography studies. These form the basis for training in the arts, the development of Waldorf school teachers, and other practical endeavors that nurture the individual, the cultural, social, and economic life of the community and the earth. This work includes the study of new economic paradigms and collaborative techniques for organization development and administration of groups and schools.
