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 and transforming.

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)[3] 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 therapy retreat.
