Position and task of IBDA
in the biodynamic movement
The biodynamic impulse can only be understood individually. Any individual human being who feels deeply moved develops his or her very own personal relationship to biodynamics. Our movement has two sources. First the insights of Rudolf Steiner, illustrated in the discourses of Koberwitz; secondly the individual commitment to action and consciousness of any person associated with the impulse. in the biodynamic movement reflect these sources. In every organisation both sources are active. But every organisation has its origin nearer to the one or to the other source. The School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum, the agricultural section is located at one end of the spectrum.
At the other end of the spectrum, where the existential fellowship of the individual is the source, are the member organisations of the different countries.
In between are graduations like for instance organisations focussing on particular interests. In particular there are Demeter organisations, which ensure the quality –the guidelines –, and license the rights to use the trademark Demeter.
