<B>Genius of Bees and the Elemental Beings </B><I> How the spiritual world works through bees for nature and humanity</I>, ROESSNER, RALF
3 Genius of Bees and the Elemental Beings How the spiritual world works through bees for nature and humanity
1912230038 / 9781912230037 Paperback 
‘The most important task of the bees, apart from the preparation of honey, wax and propolis, is the healing of the atmosphere! The honey bee, apis mellifera, alone, is able to perform this task. This is its first and foremost purpose.’
– Ralf Roessner

Describing the Genius of Bees as the ‘group consciousness’ of the hive, Ralf Roessner presents an extraordinary commentary based on first-hand spiritual-scientific research and experience. He studies the mission of the Genius of Bees, the hexagonal structure of ‘the crystalline heaven’ within which the bees operate, and the healing of the world through their work. Roessner elucidates the relationships between the Genius of Bees, the elemental world and the human being. He also speaks of his personal experiences with the organic ‘earth hive’, giving instructions on how they are made, and offers practical advice on tackling the varroa mite.

In this unique and original work, the author, ‘… attempts to describe the secrets of creation as far as he has experienced these himself’. As he goes on to clarify: ‘Many matters, which could only be vaguely perceived in former times, can now be investigated in a spiritual-scientific manner. A secret is only a secret to the extent it escapes the individual human being’s powers of consciousness’.

Anyone seeking deeper insights into the world of the honey bee will be enriched by the content of this book.

RALF ROESSNER is a passionate bee keeper and a biodynamic farmer, cultivating and processing the ‘light root’ (Dioscorea batatas), which his company IMTON GmbH develops and markets. He is the author of The Light Root (Temple Lodge 2014). In addition, Ralph has been working in the field of water research for 20 years. As an ex-Waldorf school teacher he is interested in all new developments in education, and as a father of two grown up children he aims to be in touch with the pulse of the times. All the above informs his quest for healthy nutrition for the future through meditative as well as experimental research into subtle matter.

<B>Heart Thinking </B><I> Inspired Knowledge</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF
4 Heart Thinking Inspired Knowledge
1855845350 / 9781855845350 
The concepts of ‘thinking with the heart’ or ‘emotional intelligence’ are often used today, usually in contrast to intellectual thought. When Rudolf Steiner used the phrase ‘heart thinking’, however, he meant it in a very specific sense. Drawn primarily from his lectures, the compiled texts in this anthology illuminate his perspective – that heart thinking is intimately related to the spiritual faculty of Inspiration. The heart, he says, can become a new organ of thinking through the practice of exercises that work towards the transformation of feeling, shedding its personal and subjective character.
The exercise sequences presented here call for two fundamental gestures. Firstly, renunciation, which extends from an extinguishing of images engendered in meditation, through inner silence, to a conscious suppression of sense perception. The second gesture involves the development of new feelings towards natural phenomena as well as to the reports of spiritual-scientific research. By practising these methods, we can attain a kind of thinking that is in harmony with the true nature and reality of what we seek to know.
Rudolf Steiner’s texts are collected together by Martina Maria Sam, who contributes a lucid introduction and notes.

<B>Hidden Geometry of Flowers, The </B><I> Living Rhythms, Form and Number</I>, CRITCHLOW, KEITH
5 Hidden Geometry of Flowers, The Living Rhythms, Form and Number
0863158064 / 9780863158063 2011 Paperback 
560 colour illustrations
Can we imagine a world without flowers? Flowers are beautiful, offering us delight in their colour, fragrance and form, as well as their medicinal benefits. Flowers also speak to us in the language of the plant form itself, as cultural symbols in different societies, and at the highest levels of inspiration. In this beautiful and original book, renowned thinker and geometrist Keith Critchlow has chosen to focus on an aspect of flowers that has received perhaps the least attention. This is the flower as teacher of symmetry and geometry (the 'eternal verities', as Plato called them). In this sense, he says, flowers can be treated as sources of remembering -- a way of recalling our own wholeness, as well as awakening our inner power of recognition and consciousness. What is evident in the geometry of the face of a flower can remind us of the geometry that underlies all existence.

Working from his own flower photographs and with every geometric pattern hand-drawn, the author reviews the role of flowers within the perspective of our relationship with the natural world. His illuminating study is an attempt to re-engage the human spirit in its intimate relation with all nature.

<B>Mindfulness and Reverence </B><I> Steps in Perception</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF
6 Mindfulness and Reverence Steps in Perception
1855845369 / 9781855845367 
Contemporary interest in the meditative schooling of mindfulness is usually associated with Eastern traditions. Rudolf Steiner spoke of the same phenomenon, although he used the terms ‘attentiveness’ and ‘dedication’ – or, combining these two, ‘pure perception’. This way of mindfulness and reverence is not in conflict with spiritual paths founded on thinking or pure thought. However, as the texts in this anthology indicate, methods based exclusively on thinking cannot be successful if they are not supported by perception, feeling and will.

In counterbalance to today’s increasing intellectualization, the meditative exercises featured here connect with the perceptive activity of the human being’s sensory organs. They could also be understood as exercises for developing empathy, helping to make our relationship with the world around us more conscious and intense.

Rudolf Steiner’s texts are sensitively edited and arranged by Andreas Neider, whose introduction and notes add further clarity to the theme.

<B>Shakespeare </B><I> Becoming Human</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF, INTRO BY ANDREW WOLPERT
7 Shakespeare Becoming Human
1855845245 / 9781855845244 2016 
‘Like so much of Renaissance Art, Shakespeare’s work bears an open secret. The esoteric spiritual content is undisguised, though it may be unexpected and not always immediately recognized. And, like all the great artistic achievements... this work remains incomplete until we recognize and respond to its open invitation that we become active participants.’ – from the Introduction

The perennial universal appeal of Shakespeare’s work is well established. His core themes explore the challenges of the human condition whilst celebrating the potential of human beings to achieve and develop in earthly life. But what is it that enables Shakespeare’s characters to live and breathe beyond the confines of their written roles, some 400 years after the plays were first performed?

In these collected lectures, edited with an extensive introduction by Andrew Wolpert, Rudolf Steiner throws new light on the Bard’s work, describing the on-going life that flows from it, and the profound spiritual origins of Shakespeare’s inspirations. He shows how Shakespeare can enliven us in our longing for contemporary ideals and truths; indeed, in our goal of becoming fully human. Our engagement with the plays, not just as actors and directors, but also as students and members of an audience, can thus become a co-creative participation in the redemptive potential of Shakespeare’s enduring legacy.

Steiner speaks about Shakespeare in connection with the evolution of the arts of poetry and drama, and the transitions between cultural epochs. He reminds us of the sources and characteristics of classical Greek drama, recalling Aristotle’s definition of drama as catharsis, and pointing to Shakespeare’s connection to these cultural and historical wellsprings.

<B>Songs and Dreams </B><I> By seeking we are found</I>, REILLY, NEIL
8 Songs and Dreams By seeking we are found
1584209623 / 9781584209621 
“If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts.” (Psalm 95:7–8)

There is a correlation between waking experiences in a sleep state and inner experiences in a waking state. Both involve awakened consciousness. The hundred-plus songs and thirteen dreams in this volume are halting attempts to put into words inner events that are experienced in a waking consciousness. Inner experiences are filtered into images, ideas, and feelings, which are then translated into words. This derivative process condenses activity into words.

The polar opposite process must happen for you, the reader. If these words resonate when read, they then recreate images, ideas, and feelings. In this way, it is possible for the writer and the reader to experience a very similar inner activity. The creative process of each reader has a life of its own. Ironically, as individuals we create our own unique inner activity, which can lead to a universal experience.

<B>The Etheric: Broadening Science through Anthroposophy </B><I> Volume 1: The World of the Ethers</I>, MARTI, ERNST
9 The Etheric: Broadening Science through Anthroposophy Volume 1: The World of the Ethers
1912230054 / 9781912230051 
Ernst Marti devoted his life to researching the ‘etheric realm’ – a subtle area that exists between the physical and spiritual. Taking the numerous statements and references by Rudolf Steiner as his starting point, Marti develops our understanding of the etheric world in various fields – from the theory of knowledge to the natural world, through to music, the realm of colours, eurythmy and medicine. In doing so, he proposes exciting bridges from the ancient and medieval worldview to the present and future of natural and spiritual science.

The Etheric explores the fourfold realm of the ethers. Giving an overview of their cosmic origins in the evolution of the earth, Dr Marti shows how the ethers work in phenomena of warmth, light, sound and organic life. He brings a contemporary understanding and insight to the classical elements – fire, air, water and earth – as the media through which ethericity manifests and works in the world. Four physical forces are also explored which, as opposites to the ethers, have a constant tendency to break down and annul what life-giving ether creates. Dr Marti then studies the shadow aspects of the ethers connected to what he terms the ‘sub-natural’ forces of electricity, magnetism and nuclear force.
Given that the author was unable to complete this book in his lifetime, his pupil and colleague Irmgard Rossmann edited the final version in the spirit of her teacher. It is published here in two volumes, with this first focusing on ‘The World of the Ethers’ and the forthcoming volume on ‘The World of Formative Forces’.

ERNST MARTI (1903–1985) was born in Switzerland and studied medicine in Vienna and Basel. He worked as a doctor in Solothorn and Arlesheim, Switzerland, where he met Ita Wegman. She entrusted him with the task of researching the etheric forces, to which he then devoted his whole life. He worked for more than 40 years as a doctor in Basel and founded the Society of Anthroposophical Doctors in Germany. He gave many lectures and courses for doctors as well as the general public and wrote numerous essays and papers that were published in specialist periodicals. He died at the Ita Wegman clinic.
