COURSES AND EVENTS

Health and Well Being

Hawkwood was established as an independent centre for learning in 1948 and today the registered charity offers an extensive array of courses. Both residential and non residential, ranging from one day to a weekend or week, the leading edge courses offer a unique mix of new, creative and exciting content often not otherwise available. Founded on Rudolf Steiner’s anthrosophical values, Hawkwood endeavours to uphold his beliefs which have had such a profound and positive influence on education, the arts and agriculture. The course programme has broadened and diversified over the years to realign the original design of Rudolf Steiner with the changes of our ever evolving world, but the original Steiner impulse is always at the heart of this organisation.

Either scroll through the complete list of courses, talks and events or select a category from one of the four subject areas. You can also use the search bar option or browse through the calendar which highlights all activity at Hawkwood.
