Grandson Menhir (2,5 m)
Menhir discovered 1895 under a foot or so of soil, the 3000 kg stone was re-erected shortly after discovery. This standing stone is about 2.5 m tall, in Waadt / Vaud Kanton - District de Grandson.
There is a sign on Cantonale Route 5 in the village of Grandson pointing the way to the dolmen which is across the autobahn from the village.
Alignment of over 20 menhirs with largest stone ca. 4 metres tall, in the middle of the Swiss town of Lutry on lake Geneva. Dating from 1800 BC with one menhir originally with engravings (human representation), which has been replaced with a reproduction.
Remarkable alignment on the outskits of the town near the beach. 45 Stones up to 4.5 Meters tall, some humanoid shaped stones taken to Museum.
Two straight alignments intersect, and there is a third, semicircular alignment on the site. No astronomical target has been identified.
Bonvillars Menhir (3,5 m)
A setting of four standing stones in roughly arectangle, near to the village of Corcelles-pres-Concise in Neuenburg, Switzerland.
It is believed that three of these are the original menhirs, one of which has cup holes, with one modern stone to replace one that went missing.
Anthroposophy must be there for those who in their souls seek a way to spiritual experience.
Anthroposophy is a scientific approach to the study of human nature and the human being’s connection to the universe. Founded by Rudolf Steiner early in the twentieth century, it has given rise to practical applications in many fields of human activity: psychology, education (Waldorf education), medicine, agriculture (biodynamics), social sciences, economy, and the arts. Anthroposophy expands traditional scientific horizons and strives to present a dynamic spiritual concept of the human being in a process of evolution. It offers a way for each of us to develop thinking which comes from the heart, providing pentrating insights into the most fundamental life questions of today.
The Goetheanum is located atop a hill in Dornach, near Basel. It was built between 1925 and 1928 according to a model made by Rudolf Steiner. It was the first time a structure of that size incorporating sculptural forms was built out of reinforced concrete. This avant-garde building was one of the first examples of organic architecture.
The Goetheanum is the point of convergence for the General Anthroposophical Society. It is also the centre for the School of Spiritual Science, whose task is to undertake spiritual research and apply its results to life situations while at the same time providing a forum for the exchange of ideas.

Rudolf Steiner (February 25, 1861 - March 30, 1925)
RUDOLF STEINER, philosopher , scientist and educator , has achieved world-wide fame as the originator of the Science of the Spirit known as Anthroposophy, and as a pioneer of genius in a variety of fields of learning.
Rudolf Steiner, philosopher, scientist and spiritual researcher, was a pioneer who was able to cast new light on the nature and evolution of the human being. Out of this profound insight, he developed practical applications for numerous fields of human endeavor. After completing his studies in science and philosophy in Vienna, he gained a reputation among the cultural circles of his time as an author and editor. At the beginning of the last century, he began speaking of the results of his personal spiritual research, which he called Anthroposophy (from the Greek “anthropos” = human being, and “sophia” = wisdom). In the course of his very productive existence (30 books and nearly 6000 lectures), he travelled all over Europe, sharing the results of his research in the fields of the sciences, the arts and human spirituality, and as his influence spread he was invited to meet with politicians, scientists, educators, artists, doctors and other professionals. Rudolf Steiner founded the Anthroposophical Society in 1923, with the understanding that human consciousness was evolving and the gates of the spiritual world, long closed, were beginning to open again for humanity. Rudolf Steiner’s work continues to be a source of inspiration for thousands of people in more than 60 countries.
“Steiner's gift to the world was a moral and meditative way to objective vision, a way appropriate to the psychological physiological constitution of Western man. If accepted in the spirit of humility, altruism and truthfulness in which it was given, it could bridge the existing cleft between a man's religious conviction and his intellect and will. It could add comprehension to our existing knowledge and thus revive the vision without which our generation will hardly find the solution to its problems.”
Franz Winkler ( Man the Bridge between Two Worlds)
