It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
— e.e. cummings




Join us for the Questions of Courage gathering as we bring to life what lies just outside the margins of the comfortable, to stir the deeper questions that articulate the soul and move us in our more intimate moments…In gathering together we hope to find inspiration to re-imagine new futures, new possibilities for our earth and humankind.

How do we align the depths of our inner questions with the courageous action needed to bring to life our visions and ideals?

  • What is true courage, and where does it originate? How can we share, define, examine and enliven this quality so as so strengthen our capacities in the world?

  • Can we gather together and find greater resolve to meet the growing intensity of social, environmental, political and technological issues?

When young people are given the freedom to express and unfold themselves, they are not as easily swayed by the empty materialism that is pounding them from the outside......The ability of those young people to communicate what lives in the depths of their hearts and minds not only essential for their own development, but also for the future development of human kind.

Courage! We learn it fast or not at all. (...) Courage to say to ourselves: the life of the world must be constructed anew from its foundations.
— Rudolf Steiner's address to the youth on the 20 July 1924 in Arnheim.

More Questions for Consideration

—From the Youth Section Research at the Goetheanum—

  1. What would the world look like in 2030 if what lives within me becomes a reality and what will I do to make it happen?

  2. What do we speak about when invited freely to define our life experiences, and how does this help us form a picture about the way in which young people experience reality?

  3. How do we define our identity based on our experiences of education, relationships, profession, family background, upbringing and our wishes and aspirations for the future?

  4. How do young people today relate to spiritual questions and seek to explore them further? How does this impact individual choice and will?
