And even more important: we are searching for medical doctors who could come for a longer period or on a regular basis to work in our Centre in order to professionally support our team, as well as those colleagues who finished the training in anthroposophic medicine and need more practical inputs in order to begin working as anthroposophic doctors.

About the Sophianum…
The initiative launched by the founders of the Sophianum Centre for Anthroposophy undertakes, as its core mission, to transmit the spiritual essence of anthroposophy and to evoke new values. Their aims are to raise awareness about and to bring into the public domain the anthroposophical work accomplished in the previous century by Dr. Rudolf Steiner, which to this day possesses a creative force and is increasingly radiant; as well as to develop and provide a sustainable example of anthroposophic healing treatments within an institutional framework, for the first time in Hungary.
A space has been opened to serve as a port for Hungary’s scene of anthroposophy. It is an easy-access location in the heart of Budapest, in one of Hungary’s most beautiful organic buildings, the Swan House designed by Ervin Nagy. The Centre, filling in a niche, offers outpatient services in-line with anthroposophic healing, and works as a domestic and international network of contacts and cooperation. It thus has the potential to grow into a regional information hub and a major contributor to the dissemination and familiarisation of anthroposophic values, traditions and achievements.
The Centre, well reflecting its founding concept, rests on three main pillars, as in the architectural planning stage we have designed three interrelated, nevertheless separate, spaces.
It is important to emphasise that the Centre, with its inviting front entrance from a busy street, has the potential to grow into a vivacious and open institution that anyone can enter to simply looking around. The Centre’s three areas of mission and the architectural structure reflecting these lend themselves to attracting interested parties of all kind. Anthroposophists will be drawn in by lectures, events, forums or books. Those seeking physical or mental health will come for the medical and therapeutic services, while lay passers-bys may pop in to enjoy a delicious cup of tea surrounded by the atmospheric pictures in the Napút Gallery. The Centre thus offers a location for encounters, meetings and networking.
The Founders established two Companies at the turn of 2014/2015 to meet these goals. The Kardia Anthroposophical Foundation is to fulfil the foundation’s conceptual goals, to organise and oversee the medical, educational and pedagogical events and activities that are of public benefit. The Sophianum Antropozófiai Nonprofit Kft. is mainly the investment of developing the Centre and overseeing its operation.
The Companies and the Founders possess 60 percent of the necessary funds to launch the project and cover the associated start-up costs as part of the 2015 plans. We intend to raise the remaining 40 percent through donations, sponsorships and applications for grants. As a result of preliminary negotiations 7 percent will be at our disposal by the autumn of 2015. The five-year financial goal for 2016-2020 aims at the Centre to become self-sufficient in order to ensure consistent operations.
The initiators have actively been involved since 2000 in the anthroposophical movement in Hungary and abroad, participating and assisting in the realisation of anthroposophical teachings, conferences, events, associations, foundations, publications and organisational activities either individually or in co-operation with others.
