Friday 10:30 am Archetype of Ita Wegman and the Young Doctors

Dr. Michaela Gloeckler will speak to the archetype of Ita Wegman and the young doctors after the death of Rudolf Steiner – radically and against all odds creating healing spaces, curative communities, supporting Karl Konig’s first Camphill in Scotland at a time when the greatest atrocity in our time was happening in neighboring Germany during World War II and her exclusion in Dornach.

Saturday 10:00am Modeling ELIANT

Our Elderberries community asked Dr. Michaela to speak to what it took to organize for Allianz ELIANT in 2006: how did she/they organize the applied sciences of Anthroposophy, agriculture, medicine, education and curative communities, and also inspire one million people to sign her petition! What is the difference she sees with having a legislative voice and not having a say for human dignity and freedom for humanity, Europe, and also for the fruits of Rudolf Steiner’s work?


Dr Michaela Glöckler was born in 1946 in Stuttgart/Germany. She attended a Waldorf School until graduation, followed by studies of German Literature and History in Freiburg and Heidelberg, and from 1972 till 1978, before studying Medicine in Tübingen and Marburg. She completed further training as a Paediatrician at the Community Hospital in Herdecke and the Bochum University Hospital. For the next 10 years, she was a Paediatrician at the Community Hospital in Herdecke and Medical Adviser at the Rudolf Steiner School in Witten/Ruhr. From 1988 until 2016, she was the Head of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum, School of Spiritual Science, Dornach, Switzerland. She remains active as an international lecturer and trainer for Anthroposophic Medicine, and is the Co-founder of the Alliance for Childhood and the European Alliance of Initiatives for applied Anthroposophy/ELIANT.
