Gene Gollogly, the recently elected president of Anthroposophy NYC, has crossed the threshold at the age of 70 on January 7, 2021, in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. He suffered a heart attack at his home in Great Barrington and died at the local hospital. His daughter was present.

We are keeping his generous spirit before us as a guiding presence, as our President Per Spiritum.

At our recent Members Evening, we mentioned Gene’s deep interest in the Rudolf Steiner lecture “The Etherization of the Blood” (GA 130). Fred Dennehy has identified a key section. Click here to download the file.

We would also like to announce an upcoming (January 23rd) Zoom event organized by the Chicago Rudolf Steiner Branch that may be of interest to you. It is co-held by Daniel Collett, the Gollogly family, Dottie Zold, and the ALIANT/Elderberries community). Click here for more information.

Anthroposophy NYC is the New York City Branch of the Anthroposophical Society in America. We are dedicated to unite spiritual truths with life’s realities to nurture a shared community, inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner.

We are excited that the Rudolf Steiner Bookstore continues to be open. Stop by!
Our hours are Wed, Thu, Fri 2-6 pm, and Sat 1-5 pm.


However, ASNYC programs–events and study groups–will continue online for a while. We’ll let you know when we’re ready to offer in-person programs. Meanwhile, participate in our online programs and engage in our blogs–read them and write down your comments. And share on social media, of course.

Our beautiful Auditorium is now available to short-term renters. Click here to visit the Space Use page for more information.

Please consider making a financial contribution in support of the Branch. Every year we count on your support; this year more than ever because we did not escape the ravages of the pandemic. In asking for your support, we want to share with you our experiences and struggles and how we are facing them.

People, look east. The time is near
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the guest, is on the way.
