Rudolf Steiner Health
Center and Summer Retreat
The 4th Annual Therapeutic Retreat will be
held this summer to provide anthroposophical therapies to
patients suffering from chronic illness or those in need of
re-enlivening their physical and life forces. The summer retreats
have been paving the way to Drs. Molly McMullen-Laird and
Quentin McMullen's long-held dream of creating the first anthroposophical
in-patient clinic in North America that is now within reach.
With the discovery of an ideal piece of property in Ann Arbor,
Michigan, the doctors have sought to secure the property for
the establishment of the Rudolf Steiner Health Center.
Once the land is purchased, The Rudolf Steiner
Health Center will offer complete medical evaluations and
individualized nursing care, eurythmy, painting, clay modeling,
color light and speech formation therapies, rhythmic massage,
biography work, and a healthy diet from food grown on the
planned on-site biodynamic garden.The Center will provide
a full spectrum of anthroposophical medicines and specialize
in the intimate teamwork between physicians and specially-trained
health care specialists that support the health of the individual.
Physicians and patients who experience the warmth and compassion
of anthroposophical therapies find them to be completely restorative
The potential property is a 60-acre Ann Arbor
estate along the Huron River. The grounds provide the setting
for the existing 14,500-sq. ft. building suitable for initial
needs, as well as a farmhouse to be renovated for outpatient
office use, two ponds, a meandering stream, and 1,162 feet
of river frontage. Nearly 15 acres of the land is certified
organic. A total of $1.3 million is required by June 7th to
complete the purchase of this land and facilities that perfectly
match the doctors' vision of the Center.
The parent organization, Community Supported
Anthroposophical Medicine (CSAM), is a unique and innovative
response to current health care needs. CSAM is a 501(c)
not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing patient
care, education, and research in health care through anthroposophically-extended
medicine. CSAM oversees a medical practice, including physicians
and anthroposophically-trained therapists, and runs education
and outreach programs, research projects, and an annual summer

"Seek the truly practical life,
but seek it in such a way that it does not blind you to the spirit
working in it. Seek the spirit, but seek it not out of spiritual
greed, but so that you may apply it in the genuinely practical life."
