The Anthroposophical Society in America (ASA) supports and furthers the work of Rudolf Steiner in the United States. We are an open membership organization that fosters self-development and inspired social engagement. Anthroposophy is a discipline of research as well as a path of knowledge, service, personal growth, and social engagement. Introduced and developed by Rudolf Steiner, it is concerned with all aspects of human life and spirit, and with humanity’s future evolution and well-being.

Eurythmy Spring Valley
Nestled into the rolling hills of our campus is the oldest anthroposophical community in the U.S. The land was bought in 1926 to provide a biodynamic garden for the then café in Carnegie Hall, and has since seen the building of many anthroposophical institutions. On the property, besides our center for eurythmy, is the largest Waldorf School in North America, an elder-care facility, a Waldorf teacher training, and a Biodynamic training, among others.   Eurythmy Spring Valley is comprised of  the internationally known performing Ensemble and the highly respected School of Eurythmy, which offers both full-time and part-time training leading to a variety of careers in eurythmy (a rich, expressive art form that gives expression to the whole voice of the human being and the world language, through movement, color and form).

Mercury Press
Mercury Press is a small Non-Profit publisher and print shop located at the Fellowship Community, originating in the 1970s to foster continuing education in the study of anthroposophical literature. Since many of Rudolf Steiner’s significant lectures had yet to be translated and printed in English, this became part of our work and provided material for unfolding the community’s spiritual life.

 Mercury Press is a “work activity group”, providing educational, economic, social and therapeutic experiences in the editing, printing, binding, collating and shipping of books to interested English-speaking people all over the world. This activity, in turn, produces funds which enable us to care for the elderly members at a cost far below more conventional homes for the aging. 

Today, we work on a wider range of subjects beyond translations of Rudolf Steiner’s books and lectures, including new medical arts, education titles, philosophic thoughts and much more. We invite you to read our publications to consider the timeless wisdom of Anthroposophy. 

Also, we welcome you to let us know your thoughts as well while reviewing our offerings and we always appreciate any donations you may feel appropriate to help either our printing endeavors or our continuous care of the elders who live with us here at the Fellowship.
