3 Constitution of the School of Spiritual Science An Introductory Guide
185584382X / 9781855843820 1980 Paperback 
If the intentions of the Christmas Conference are to be carried out, the Anthroposophical Society will in future have to fulfil, as far as possible, the esoteric aspirations of its members. With this end in view, the School, consisting of three Classes, will be established within the General Society.’ - Rudolf Steiner, January 1924
A year after the burning of the first Goetheanum building in Dornach, Switzerland, Rudolf Steiner refounded the Anthroposophical Society during the Christmas Conference of 1923/24. At the heart of the Society he created ‘the School of Spiritual Science’, which has the specific task of presenting ‘the esoteric aspect’, and leading its members to knowledge and experience of the spirit. The School was to have ‘Sections’ to represent various fields of human endeavour, such as Medicine and Education, and three ‘Classes’, with the First Class to be established immediately by Rudolf Steiner.
This short book is a collection of articles (from the Society Newsletter) and lectures by Rudolf Steiner from 1924, introducing and explaining the purpose of the School of Spiritual Science to members of the Anthroposophical Society. It forms a companion volume to The Foundation Stone / The Life, Nature and Cultivation of Anthroposophy.

5 Faculty Meetings with Rudolf Steiner 1922-1924 1922-1924
088010452X / 9780880104524 1998 Paperback / softback 
The Waldorf School movement has it roots in the chaotic period following the First World War. Struggling to create the first school, Rudolf Steiner worked on every detail. Lesson plans, religious education, school hours, course resources, administration, finance, child study; no aspect of school life was beyond his attention. Guiding the faculty and demonstrating a phenomenal range of knowledge, Steiner moved toward his goal of creating a vehicle for social transformation.

These two volumes span the years 1919 to 1924 and cover, meeting by meeting, the development of the first Waldorf School. Here is Rudolf Steiner, not through the written word or lectures but in transcribed interaction that details the creation process. Participating in a work in progress, Steiner deals with an amazing array of problems, frustrations, successes and failures. His sleeves rolled up and his sight on a vision that he made a reality, Rudolf Steiner lays the foundations of Waldorf Education. This detailed look, behind the scenes, will interest not only teachers, but also parents and students: anyone who wants to know how a successful worldwide school movement arose.

<B>From Jesus to Christ </B><I> Eleven Lectures</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  DAVY, CHARLES
6 From Jesus to Christ Eleven Lectures
1855841959 / 9781855841956 2005 Paperback 
Once experienced intuitively by early gnostic thinkers, knowledge of the cosmic significance of Christ and his mission has faded over the centuries. As theologians and historians of the Church critically scrutinized the Gospel records, their focus shifted from Christ to the human figure of Jesus of Nazareth. Today, many are beginning a new search for an understanding of the life, death and resurrection of Christ and its meaning for their lives. In these enlightening lectures, Rudolf Steiner shows how 'the Mystery of Golgotha' can be seen as the pivotal event of human history. The Gospels themselves, he says, are 'initiation documents' that can guide us on a path of spiritual development. Steiner demonstrates how manifold spiritual entities are involved in the events of Palestine which took place 2,000 years ago, and explains problematic aspects of Christian theology such as the resurrection of the physical body. His emphasis throughout is on highlighting the esoteric path to Christ, and he encourages us to awaken to the new revelation manifesting in our time: Christ as the 'Lord of Karma'. This edition contains the public talk given prior to the beginning of the course.

7 From the History and Contents of the First Section of the Esoteric School 1904-1914 Letters, Documents and Lectures
0880106409 / 9780880106405 2011 Paperback 
This volume is an important text for anyone interested in the development of Rudolf Steiner's teaching and for those wishing to explore the advice and admonitions Steiner provided for his early esoteric students. This collection of letters, circulars, and lectures offer a glimpse of the birth of the anthroposophic movement from the German section of the Theosophical Society of the late nineteenth century. One gains a clear picture of why Steiner could no longer work within the theosophic framework, as well as the events that led to the split between the Theosophical Society under the leadership of Annie Besant and the Esoteric School under Steiner's guidance and leadership.

Primarily in the form of letters are the specific exercises and advice that Steiner gave to pupils who wished to further their spiritual capacities. Also included are his early lectures and teachings concerning the "Masters" and their relationship to human evolution.

From the History and Contents of the First Section of the Esoteric School 1904–1914 includes introductory and concluding remarks by the book's original editor, Hella Wiesberger.

German source: Zur Geschichte und aus den Inhalten der ersten Abteilung der Esoterischen Schule, 1904–1914.

This Collected Works edition contains a new introduction, a chronology of Rudolf Steiner's life, and an index.

8 Gospel of St.Mark A Cycle of Ten Lectures
0880100834 / 9780880100830 1986 Paperback 
Steiner tells us that Mark was especially able to reveal Christ as a cosmic being of his greatness and power, because, after having been a pupil of Peter, he moved to Alexandria during a time when Jewish philosophy and theology was at it's peak. There he absorbed the best aspects and views of pagan gnosis. Mark was able to learn how humankind came arose from the spiritual world and how the luciferic and ahrimanic forces are taken into the human soul. Mark was able to accept everything that was told to him by pagan gnosis concerning our human origin out of the cosmos when our planet came into being. But he could also see, especially from his perspective in Egypt, the strong contrast between our original human destiny and what humankind had become during his time. This lecture cycle, like the Gospel itself, is a work of art in its own right.

9 Initiation, Eternity, and the Passing Moment
091014284X / 9780910142847 Hardback 
These lectures delineate the difference between ordinary and initiate consciousness. Steiner further distinguishes between the initiation of the Christ, who gave the earth its meaning by working from within the physical body, and the initiations of the great initiates who guided humanity by imparting truths gained while outside the body.

Steiner goes on to describe the means of initiation needed today and how Lucifer and Ahriman, the opposing forces in earthly existence, play into this process.

These profound lectures can help us in understanding the place, purpose, and methods of true inner development.

185584219X / 9781855842199 2009 Paperback 
If such authentic souls, such honest anthroposophists can be found ... then an upward movement and dynamic will arise. If such souls do not appear, then decadence will take its inexorable downward course... Today humanity stands before a great crisis: either it will see all civilization collapsing into the abyss, or else spirituality will raise civilization up by the power of the Michael impetus, through which the Christ impetus works, thus continuing, enriching and sustaining it.'

11 Karma of Materialism, The
0880101296 / 9780880101295 Paperback 
"While natural science has devised and continues to devise ever more elaborate and more precise tools for investigation, it has left unexamined and unimproved the first and most essential, the most ubiquitously applied, of all its tools. It has never tried to examine the nature of thinking itself; the point at which unconscious process blossoms into, or rather ‘sets’ as, conscious thought” —Owen Barfield, from the foreword

Rudolf Steiner examines the effects of scientists’ failure to examine thinking itself since the beginning of the so-called scientific revolution. This has led to a materialistic attitude in human culture that generates what Steiner calls “the karma of materialism.” He explains that there is a lack of harmony between the human intellect, which involves the physical body and life forces, and the sense of morality, which involves the most recent aspect of our human constitution—our individuality, or I-being.

12 Materialism and the Task of Anthroposophy
0880101768 / 9780880101769 Paperback 
In this history of the development of human consciousness, Steiner makes the startling announcement that the world has already ended in the fourth century A.D. Since then we have been living in an increasingly spiritual world on a disintegrating, dying earth. We have simply been asleep to this spiritual reality around us.

The seventeen lectures presented here were given in Dornach, Switzerland, between April 2 and June 5, 1921. In the Collected Edition of Rudolf Steiner's works in German, the volume containing the original texts is entitled: Perspektiven der Menschheitsentwicklung (Vol. 204 in the Bibliographic Survey). They were translated from the German by Maria St. Goar.

13 Nature's Open Secret Introductions to Goethe's Scientific Writings
0880107154 / 9780880107150 2010 Paperback 
At the young age of twenty-one, Rudolf Steiner was chosen to edit Goethe's scientific writings for the principle Geothe edition of his time. Goethe's literary genius was universally acknowledged; it was Steiner's task to understand and comment on Goethe's scientific achievements. Steiner recognized the significance of Goethe's work with nature and his epistemology, and here began Steiner's own training in epistemology and spiritual science.

This collection of Steiner's introductions to Goethe's works re-visions the meaning of knowledge and how we attain it. Goethe had discovered how thinking could be applied to organic nature and that this experience requires not just rational concepts but a whole new way of perceiving.

14 Philosophy of Spiritual Activity, The
0880101563 / 9780880101561 2007 Paperback 
Now what kind of approach by the reader did THE PHILOSOPHY OF SPIRITUAL ACTIVITY count on? It had to assume a special way of reading. It expected the reader, as he read, to undergo the sort of inner experience that, in an external sense, is really just waking up out of sleep in the morning. The feeling one should have about it is such as to make one say, "My relationship to the world in passive thoughts was, on a higher level, that of a person who lies asleep. Now I am waking up." It is like knowing, at the moment of awakening, that one has been lying passively in bed, letting nature have her way with one's body. But then one begins to be inwardly active. One relates one's senses actively to what is going on in the color permeated, sounding world about one. One links one's own bodily activity to one's intentions. The reader of The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity should experience something very like this waking moment of transition from passivity to activity, though of course on a higher level. He should be able to say, "Yes, I have certainly thought thoughts before. But my thinking took the form of just letting thoughts flow and carry me along. Now, little by little, I am beginning to be inwardly active in them." - from Rudolf Steiner's AWAKENING TO COMMUNITY
This seminal work asserts that free spiritual activity understood as the human ability to think and act independently of ones physical nature is the most appropriate path today for inner development and true self-knowledge. This is not simply a volume of philosophy, but also a friendly guide to practice and the experience of living thinking. Rudolf Steiner provides a step-by-step account of how we can come to experience living, intuitive thinking, the conscious experience of pure spirit. Since this book was written more than a century ago, many have tried to discover the kind of new thinking that can help us better understand the spiritual, ecological, social, political, and philosophical issues that face us. Steiner showed a path that leads from ordinary thinking to the level of pure spiritual activityùtrue inner freedom.

<B>Reappearance of Christ in the Etheric </B><I> </I>, STEINER, RUDOLF
15 Reappearance of Christ in the Etheric
0880105194 / 9780880105194 2003 Paperback 
The first chapter of the Acts of the Apostles describes Christ's Ascension-"and a cloud received him out of their sight." As the disciples were looking up, two angels appeared and told them that "this same Jesus, taken up from you into heaven, shall come again in the same way as you have seen him go." In 1910, Rudolf Steiner began a series of lectures announcing the advent of Christ's appearance in the sphere of the earth's etheric or life body. At first, he said, only a few will be aware of it, but in time more and more people-regardless of religious affiliation-will be strengthened, comforted and infused by the Christ's living presence. Such "Damascus experiences," bespeaking a new natural clairvoyance, Steiner argues, will become increasingly common. "The Christ will become a living comforter," he writes. "However strange it may seem, it is nevertheless true that often when people, even in considerable numbers, are sitting together not knowing what to do and waiting, they will see the etheric Christ. He will be there, will confer with them, and will cast his word in such gatherings. We are now approaching these times..." This collection contains Steiner's lectures on this theme, as well as on important related questions such as "the etherization of the blood.

<B>Rethinking Economics </B><I> Lectures and Seminars on World Economics (CW 340-341)</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  BARFIELD, OWEN,  CLEMM, PETER
16 Rethinking Economics Lectures and Seminars on World Economics (CW 340-341)
1621480496 / 9781621480495 2012 Paperback / softback 
14 lectures in Dornach, July 14-August 6, 1922 (CW 340)
6 seminars in Dornach, July 31-August 5, 1922 (CW 341)

"In this age of social, economic, and ecological disruption, many people are beginning to realize that perhaps the most important root causes for this crisis originate in an economic thinking that is increasingly out of touch with the social, ecological, and spiritual realities of our time. How, then, can we rethink and redefine the fundamental economic concepts that frame our discussions and shape our key institutions in society today? This is the big question on the table today. Rudolf Steiner’s lectures on economics ... offer a largely unused gold mine of fresh economic ideas that could not be more timely and relevant."
—Dr. C. Otto Scharmer, Senior Lecturer at MIT (from the foreword)

"The whole Earth, considered as an economic organism, is the social organism. Yet this is not being taken into account anywhere. It is precisely because of this error that the whole science of political economy has grown so remote from reality. People want to establish principles that are meant to apply only to an individual cell. Hence, if you study the French theory of economy, you will find it is constituted different from English or German or other economic theories. But as economists, what we really need is an understanding of the social organism in its totality." —Rudolf Steiner

Rudolf Steiner gave this complex sequence of dense, subtle, multileveled lectures and seminars to students of economics in Dornach, Switzerland, during the summer of 1922. The course reflects a lifetime of thinking on the subject and marks the conclusion of his intense five-year period of activism in the service of social, political, and economic issues. During this time, which began as World War I was ending in 1917, he worked tirelessly to promote the cause of what he called “threefolding” (Dreigliederung), by which he meant rethinking the social order on the basis of clear separation and independence of the three fundamental spheres of activity that make up a society. He proposed three independent systems:
an autonomous rights sphere (limited to judicial and political matters)
an autonomous economic sphere (cooperative or associative by nature)
and an autonomous spiritual-cultural sphere
The autonomy of these three spheres, he believed, would make possible a free, healthy, productive society and open the possibility of a lasting peace.

Rethinking Economics is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the true nature of an economy and how it works. Steiner presents the basic elements of what it would take to create a just, socially responsible, and ecologically aware economy today.

Many contemporaries were unaware of Christ's incarnation on earth at the beginning of the modern era. And today, says Rudolf Steiner, many remain ignorant of the most important event of our time: the appearance of Christ in the etheric - or life - realm of the earth. Fundamentalist and millennial groups await a second physical incarnation, while atheists and materialists deny spirit altogether. Nevertheless, an incisive transformation is taking place in the human soul that will lead to an emerging clairvoyance. Just as Paul perceived Christ at Damascus, so may every human being experience Him today.

This audio, single CD editions, complete and unabridged, is read by respected actor and speech teacher Peter Bridgmont, author of Liberation of the Actor.

18 Secrets of the Threshold

Rudolf Steiner wrote his four plays, the Mystery Dramas, to give examples of how individuals go through different experiences as they find their way into the spiritual worlds. Because each of us has a unique biography and unique karma, our journey into the spiritual is also a unique path. The eight lectures presented in this volume were given on the occasion of the first performance of the fourth play, The Souls' Awakening. These lectures count among the most significant of Steiner's insights into the nature of the path to higher knowledge.

19 Social Future, The
Culture, Equality, and the Economy

1621480283 / 9781621480280 
In 1919, shortly after World War I, the structure of society and the economy, both in Germany and globally, became a primary concern of Rudolf Steiner. In addition to writing The Threefold Social Order, in which he presented his ideas for social renewal, Steiner also gave lecture courses that year, including The Social Question as a Question of Consciousness (CW 189); Impulses of the Past and Future in Social Events (CW 190); Spiritual-Scientific Treatment of Social and Pedagogical Questions (CW 192); The Esoteric Aspect of the Social Question (CW 193); The Social Question (CW 328); as well as others and the lectures in this book, The Social Future.
That year, Rudolf Steiner also published his "Appeal to the German People and the Cultural World," which began: "Resting on secure foundations with the assurance of enduring for untold ages"— this is what the German people believed of their empire, founded half a century ago. Today they can see only its ruins. Deep searching of the soul must follow from such an experience."
In The Social Future, Rudolf Steiner presents what he saw as the underlying social problems of his time and offers his approach to solutions for a more successful and equitable social future. What he has to say is remarkably suited to our time, almost a century later. His predictions have come to pass, yet few of his recommendations have been implemented on any large scale.
