About the Keynote Presenters:
Daniel Hafner works in Nuremberg, Germany, as a priest of the Christian Community. He offers introductions to Anthroposophy for young adults in varying locations with varying themes, and hopes to be able to offer a full-time foundation year, if someday life permits.
Rev. Emma Heirman grew up in Silver Spring, MD and was shaped by 12 years at the Washington Waldorf School, while also holding dear memories in front of the altar of The Christian Community. As a child and then young adult, she found comfort and strength for her sorrows and joys at the threshold, at the place where the heart can meet the world of spirit.
In her twenties, search for work led her back to the altar. After studying at the Seminary of The Christian Community in North America and in Stuttgart, Germany, Emma was ordained in February 2016. She served her first congregation in Denver, Colorado from 2016-2020. She now serves The Christian Community in the Greater Washington- Baltimore Area alongside her husband, Rev. Matthias Giles.
Dan McKanan is the Emerson Senior Lecturer at Harvard Divinity School, where he has taught since 2008. Dan’s research focuses on the ways religious and spiritual communities contribute to social and ecological transformation, from the nineteenth century to the present. He is the author or editor of eight books, among them Prophetic Encounters: Religion and the American Radical Tradition, Eco-Alchemy: Anthroposophy and the History and Future of Environmentalism, and Camphill and the Future: Spirituality and Disability in an Evolving Communal Movement. Dan has been a sympathetic observer of the anthroposophical movement since he met the people of Camphill Village Minnesota in 1999.
