FIRE BORNE tells the story of the Anthroposophical Society in America, a small spiritual group inspired by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), and “daughter movements,” like Waldorf Education, Biodynamics, RSF Social Finance, Arts, Camphill Villages, Medical/Therapeutic Centers, Publishers, etc. The author, Jean W. Yeager was the Director of the Anthroposophical Society in America between 1996 and 2006.

This book is a timeline, starting in 1886, that shows not only the major and minor happenings within the Anthroposophical Movement, but also what was happening at that same time throughout the World. This timeline is a richly illustrated history of the results of the work which this small group achieved in fighting the culture wars over its first century in America, and is amplified by voluminous endnotes, legal By-laws, and administrative documents from Yeager’s own files supporting the results of the work.

What makes the book different is that this story is told within the context of American political, economic, cultural events as they evolved generation-by-generation from 1886-2026. FIRE BORNE is structured on a series of cultural, generational cycles presented in the book The Fourth Turning by sociologists William Strauss and Neil Howe (Broadway Books, 1997) in which they establish their thesis of cultural and generational cycles which repeat throughout Western history.

Editorial Reviews

“Thank you, Jean! - It was so good to speak with you, and I am glad to have this access.” – Mary, Anthroposophical Society in America   “You’ve done a great job on the big view of Anthroposophy.” – John, Former Editor, Being Human   “Wonderful!  I've enjoyed this book.” Andrew, Administrator Anthroposophy Facebook Group   “FIRE BORNE is a rich compilation of Anthroposophical society in American history. The book’s sophistication and original source documentation arrive at a homespun form that encourages the kind of engagement one takes on in discovery of a family album or personal journal.”  -- John Bloom, The Anthroposophical Society in America   “… one of the things I’ve been impressed with (starting with understanding the complexities of my own family karma) is how much can be learned from paying attention to timelines, to what is going on contemporaneously. Seems so obvious, but not often enough taken into account. Walter Alexander, New York City Branch
