Dr John Takacs attended the New York Rudolf Steiner School k-12, and then Cornell University for Mechanical Aerospace engineering. While in high school he began his lifelong commitment to the study and embodiment of Rudolf Steiner's work, and was fortunate to meet many great personalities involved with the Anthroposophical movement there and at the Threefold Farm & Fellowship Community in Spring Valley NY. He followed his wife through the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Missouri, followed by internship and additional training in Portland Oregon, attending Anthroposophic medicine conferences and educational programs while developing the clinic associated with a team of Anthroposophic and Spacial Dynamic therapists over the last thirty plus years. Board certified in Family Practice, Osteopathic Neuromuscular Medicine and Anthroposophic Medicine, he is the Vice President of the Association for Bothmer Gymnastics in the Americas (bothmeramericas.com), and chairman of Hands in Peace, promoting the SDI model of intercultural athletic and arts festivals for children.
Dr John is chairman of the American College of Anthroposophic Medicine, tasked with board certifying Anthroposophic physician applicants, and is listed on the Spacial Dynamics Institute website (spacialdynamics.com) as a Certified Practitioner and Trainer, who frequently assists Jaimen McMillan, the founder of Spacial Dynamics, in trainings and public workshops.
