The "General Anthroposophical Society (AAG)" - with its seat at the Goetheanum in Dornach - is active worldwide.
It is the sponsor of the School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum.
The AAG was founded in Dornach in 1923 by Rudolf Steiner.
"The Anthroposophical Society is a thoroughly public one. Its membership is open to anyone, without distinction of nation, class, religion, scientific or artistic conviction, who sees something justified in the existence of such an institution as the Goetheanum in Dornach as a School of Spiritual Science."
(Statutes of the Anthroposophical Society 1923, Article 4)
Under the name "International Society of Anthroposophic Naturopathy (ISAN)" there exists an association according to Art. 60ff. of the Swiss Civil Code. ZGB with its seat in Dornach.
ISAN unites healers worldwide who work in the field of healing according to the legal recognition of the country.
"With the creation of these Statutes, the members of the International Society of Anthroposophic Naturopathy (ISAN) are to be given a framework of co-operation and commitment. This includes the recognition of a professional code of conduct, a professional profile and the mission statement which has been drawn up for the professional group within the AGAHP in consultation with the Medical Section."
(Preamble of the ISAN statutes of 2018)
In an extensive discussion at the annual medical conference in 2017, the picture emerged quite clearly among the naturopaths present that it makes sense to develop a perspective picture of the ideal image of the healing practitioner and his activity.
The perspective picture shows how he can promote freedom and self-determination, which leads to morality, in his practice and with the patient.
The result was the adoption of the perspective picture, the foundation of ISAN as a group in the objective field within the General Anthroposophical Society, and the constitution of ISAN as an international scientific society.
