spiritual, ethical, ecological agriculture and nutrition
This kind of biodynamic schooling – with all it’s background and practial information is no doubt unique in it’s depth, complexity and quality. It was and remains a revelation for me. Dr. Lorand has comprehensive knowledge of Rudolf Steiner and biodynamics – impressive and fascinating!
In many hours of continuing education, Andrew Lorand, who for me was the best biodynamic teacher, taught me how to concentrate on what is essential. He helped me acquire most of my biodynamic knowledge and was able to solidify what I already had learned before.
Andrew Lorand is unique in combining a deep understanding of the spiritual dimensions of biodynamics while having a rigorous, academic background in other western schools of agriculture, including permaculture and agroecology. While some of our biodynamic friends are content with the spiritual view of Steiner’s approach to agriculture, some of the best also yearn for a deeper more complex and more complete understanding of just how biodynamic agriculture fits into current paradigms of agricultural renewal and Andrew is exceptionally talented in this regard.
There are probably few people like Andrew Lorand, who can explain biodynamics with so much competence, so understandably and with so much livliness. He, who decides to go with him on this path, will find it incredible.

Andrew Lorand opened up the world of biodynamics for us and the way he speaks about it – often with humor, but at the same time with great seriousness about what is essential, with tremendous technical competence and most of all with contagious enthusiasm – makes every hour with him an unforgettable experience.
