The members of the Portland Branch of the Anthroposophical Society freely come together out of their commitment to the Spiritual Science of Anthroposophy as founded by Rudolf Steiner. The branch will strive to further the life of the soul both in the individual and human society by basing its activities on anthroposophical ideals, with all that results from them for warmth in human relationship, and the spiritual, moral, artistic and cultural life of humanity.
