Welcome to the International Annual Conference of the Medical Section
at the Goetheanum
September 12-17, 2023

Body and I
The Immune Systeme and Autoimmune Disease

This year, again, the conference has three parts. In seven specialist conferences – for medicine and pharmacy, midwifery, eurythmy therapy, body therapy, nursing, psychotherapy and den-tistry – the professional groups will work on their own topics. The focus of the conference on spiritual deepening will be the 11th class lesson, which will look at the structure of the body and the temple motif from an esoteric perspective, work on the Foundation Stone Meditation and on the Gospels. The multiprofessional conference will focus on the conference topic with speakers from over 15 countries worldwide. The develop-ment and pathology of the immune system will be presented with regard to the joint therapeutic activity on the patient, and there will be an ex-change of therapeutic experiences between the professional groups.

Goetheanum TV to broadcast 10 lectures of the Annual Conference via Livestream Video

We are very pleased to announce that for the first time at the 2023 Annual Conference, we will be able to allow people around the world to participate in 10 lectures via live stream.
