Activities in Akvila
Our daily routine is based on the principles of Anthroposophic Social Therapy, where each member of the community contributes to the common wealth as much as he can.
Our goal is to establish workshops, where everyone could meet one’s profession, one’s occupation. Work sharing, social therapeutic approach helps us to create the possibilities for the residents to meet each other, and hopefully, to meet themselves.

Every day we are striving to build a community of individuals, where everyone could experience oneself as the most important, where we could meet and fulfill needs of the others. Festivals of the year, cultural activities, community gatherings are the important part of our social life.
Everybody in our community understands the importance of learning from everyday life situations, from each other, as well as from the individual studies, seminars and lectures.
Anthroposophical Social Therapy
Anthroposophical Social Therapy has to do with adults who for cognitive, psychological and/or physical reasons have a special need for support. In such cases it offers its help. Social Therapy has as its essential foundation in the anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner and endeavours to achieve a deeper understanding of man’s being. The starting point for this is the anthroposophical image of a man. It understands every human individual as a person with a healthy, indestructible spiritual essence and whose dignity is inviolable.
