<B>And the Earth Becomes a Sun </B><I> The Mystery of the Resurrection</I>, PROKOFIEFF, SERGEI
2 And the Earth Becomes a Sun The Mystery of the Resurrection
PROKOFIEFF, SERGEI
0946206775 / 9780946206773 Hardback 
In the transformation of the physical body through Christ, the seed for the future spiritualization of the world was laid, and through the re-creation of the phantom, the ego of the human being finds its redemption. The appearance of the young man at the grave (Mark 16.5) is testimony to the cosmic process in which the earth will gradually be transformed into a new sun. The connection of Christ to the earth’s aura during the period of darkness on the Golgotha Hill, established the basis by which people since then can always find him during their lives on earth. By Christ going through death, something meaningful was given to the world, not only for humanity, but also for the gods, or hierarchies.

This new publication is a continuation of the book written by Sergei Prokofieff The Mystery of the Resurrection in the Light of Anthroposophy, published in 2008. In studying Rudolf Steiner’s work, many questions arise which warrant further research, where Rudolf Steiner only suggests a direction in which the subject may be carried forward. This can be seen especially in the field of anthroposophical Christology. In researching this subject the many questions which arise can lead to one being confronted with either contradictions or unresolvable problems, but on studying the work again later, these may suddenly become clear, resulting in completely new and surprising perspectives. Some of these new perspectives will be found in And the Earth becomes a Sun.

<B>Anthroposophical Society as a Michael Community, The </B><I> On the Word ‘We’ in the Foundation Stone Meditation</I>, MACKAY, PAUL
3 Anthroposophical Society as a Michael Community, The On the Word ‘We’ in the Foundation Stone Meditation
MACKAY, PAUL
1906999546 / 9781906999544 2013 
What lies spiritually and cosmically at the foundation of a community like the Anthroposophical Society? In wrestling with this question, I have come to the inner conviction that it is justified to speak of the Anthroposophical Society as a Michael community.’ - Paul Mackay
How can one understand Rudolf Steiner’s use of the word ‘we’ in the last part of the Foundation Stone Meditation (‘What we found from our hearts and direct from our heads with focused will’)? What characterizes this ‘we’?
In the first part of this original and inspiring work, Paul Mackay takes this question as a point of departure, developing a unique approach to working with the seven rhythms of the Meditation. Based on personal experiences, he comes to the conclusion that the rhythms are an expression of the members of the human constitution, with the ‘we’ in the fifth rhythm having the quality of ‘Spirit-self’. The second part of the book considers the same ‘we’ from a karmic perspective, with reference to Rudolf Steiner’s karma lectures, events in the fourth and ninth centuries, the mystery of death and evil, and the restoration of karmic truth.

PAUL MACKAY, born 1946 in Hong Kong, studied economics in the Netherlands and business administration in France. After working in international finance, he met and studied Anthroposophy in England and Germany between 1974 and 1977. From 1977 until 2012 he was active in anthroposophical banking, as co-founder and Executive Director of Triodos Bank in the Netherlands, and then Executive Director of GLS Bank in Germany, and later Chairman of its supervisory Board. As of March 2012 he is President of the Board of Directors of Weleda AG in Switzerland. In 1996 Paul Mackay joined the Executive Council of the General Anthroposophical Society at the Goetheanum, Switzerland. In 2000 he additionally became leader of the Section for Social Sciences of the School of Spiritual Science.

<B>Anthroposophy :A Fragment </B><I> A New Foundation for the Study of Human Nature</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  CREEGER, C.E.
4 Anthroposophy :A Fragment A New Foundation for the Study of Human Nature
STEINER, RUDOLF, CREEGER, C.E.
0880104015 / 9780880104012 2006 Paperback 
This written attempt to create a spiritual anthropology was found among Rudolf Steiner's unpublished works after his death. Although fragmentary, this key work on 'Anthroposophy' is of enormous interest and importance. Here are the first steps toward the development of a true psychology of spirit, using a phenomenological approach to the human senses, the life processes, the I-experience, the human form and the human relationship to higher spiritual worlds. Steiner struggled to express the concepts related in this book, since many of the terms used in neurology, psychology and cognitive studies did not yet exist in 1910.Since then there has been much progress, and this translation benefits from more than 80 years of development in the study of the human senses, cognition, and, neurology. While not an easy text, "Anthroposophy (A Fragment)" is essential for understanding Rudolf Steiner's view of the human body - especially its formation and function in relation to spirit.
Included are an introduction by neurologist Dr James Dyson, an anthroposophical doctor; a foreword by Robert Sardello, co-founder and co-director of the School of Spiritual Psychology; and a translator's preface by Detlef Hardorp.

5 Anthroposophy and the Philosophy of Freedom Anthroposophy and Its Method of Cognition, the Christological and Cosmic-human Dimension of the Philosophy of Freedom
PROKOFIEFF, SERGEI O., ST.GOAR, MARIA
1906999023 / 9781906999025 2009 Paperback

'I asked Rudolf Steiner: "What will remain of your work thousands of years from now?" He replied: "Nothing but the Philosophy of Freedom. But in it everything else is contained. If one realizes the act of freedom described there, one can discover the whole content of Anthroposophy."' - Walter Johannes Stein

Some people's path to anthroposophy leads them directly to Rudolf Steiner's early work and The Philosophy of Freedom, and this becomes the philosophical basis for their future exploration. Rudolf Steiner referred to this as a 'safe' approach. But many people's destiny leads them directly to anthroposophy itself, or via one of its practical initiatives, making it difficult sometimes for them to relate to the cognitive basis of anthroposophy. In this unique study Sergei O. Prokofieff offers fresh means of access to Rudolf Steiner's crucially important book, The Philosophy of Freedom.

Prokofieff indicates why The Philosophy of Freedom is so important to anthroposophy. It is here that Rudolf Steiner lays the foundations for his method of research. In Steiner's own words: "One who is willing can indeed find the basic principles of anthroposophy in my Philosophy of Freedom". Prokofieff discusses the Christian nature of the anthroposophical method of cognition, and how it is integrally related to freedom and love. This in turn reveals the deeply Christian roots of The Philosophy of Freedom and its importance for modern Christian esotericism. In fact, says Prokofieff, the book holds a 'central position ... in the spiritual history of the Occident'.

In considering its multifaceted 'cosmic-human dimension', the author discusses The Philosophy of Freedom in relation to the Mystery of the Resurrection, the Working of the Hierarchies, the Being Anthroposophia, the Fifth Gospel, Rudolf Steiner's Path of Initiation, the Rosicrucian and Michaelic Impulses, the Life Between Death and Rebirth, the Foundation Stone, the Christian Mysteries of Karma and the Science of the Grail.

SERGEI O. PROKOFIEFF, born in Moscow in 1954, studied painting and art history at the Moscow School of Art. He encountered anthroposophy in his youth, and soon made the decision to devote his life to it. He has been active as an author and lecturer since 1982, and in 1991 he co-founded the Anthroposophical Society in Russia. In Easter 2001 he became a member of the Executive Council of the General Anthroposophical Society in Dornach. Anthroposophy and The Philosophy of Freedom is his twenty-first book to appear in English translation.

<B>Apocalypse, the Transformation of Earth </B><I> An Esoteric Mineralogy</I>, BENESCH, FRIEDRICH, PREFACE BY ROBERT SARDELLO
6 Apocalypse, the Transformation of Earth An Esoteric Mineralogy
BENESCH, FRIEDRICH, PREFACE BY ROBERT SARDELLO
1584201657 / 9781584201656 2015 1st Edition Paperback / softback 
48 colour illustrations
Then I saw “a new Heaven and a new Earth,” for the first heaven and the first Earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Rev. 21:1-4)
In the Revelation of St. John, spiritual worlds and spiritual entities appear both in images of the sensory world and in images of the mineral realm. This book discusses these two sides of world manifestation.
It is often argued that the images of St. John's Revelations are intended in a purely symbolic way. If this is so, the mineral appears as a symbol for something of a soul-like and spiritual nature. The Revelator however, did not see symbols but realities; even a symbol can be genuine only if something of the reality for which it stands shines through. It must, in a real way, be inwardly identical with what it intends, the essence from which it stems. Thus it must arise from the same reality. Otherwise it contains no meaning.
The images of the minerals in the Apocalypse are just as much reality as the minerals are on Earth. Neither is essential; both are simply manifestations of something essential. Hence, both are truly apocalyptic - the mineral we hold in our hand and the image we hold in our mind. They reveal themselves mutually.
This book juxtaposes the objects of sensory appearance and natural-scientific research with the sayings of the Revelation of St. John to express the joint background of the appearances. One connected with the other can then lead to an encounter with the essence. Thus, we are dealing with an “esoteric mineralogy.
Friedrich Benesch enables a renewed encounter between the human being and mineral being, from which essence and future can then shine forth. Anyone wanting to look more deeply into the Book of Revelations should read this beautifully illustrated, unique work on its meaning and its significance for both today and the future of humankind and the Earth.

<B>Astronomy and Astrology </B><I> Finding a Relationship to the Cosmos</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  VON ARNIM, C.
8 Astronomy and Astrology Finding a Relationship to the Cosmos
STEINER, RUDOLF, VON ARNIM, C.
1855842238 / 9781855842236 2009 Paperback 
In the Middle Ages, Astronomia - one of the Seven Liberal Arts - was as much about astrology as astronomy. In fact the two disciplines only parted company in the seventeenth century, as the materialistic world-view gained greater prominence. Where once human destiny was connected to stars and planets, and spiritual or soul qualities were associated with the natural world, now the cosmos was seen as consisting of gases, fire and dead rock.

Rudolf Steiner brings a new spiritual perspective to our study of the heavens. Humanity, he says, is intimately connected to cosmic beings, who in turn are related to planets and stars. There is meaning in the cosmos. Although Steiner rejects the simplistic notion of the planets determining our lives and behaviour, he makes a clear connection between the heavenly bodies and human beings. Whilst criticizing the superficial nature of much astrology, Steiner shows that as individuals, and with the guidance of spiritual beings, we choose an appropriate time of birth to match the destiny we are to live.

This enlightening anthology, expertly collated by Margaret Jonas, features excerpts of Steiner's work on the spiritual individualities of the planets, the determination of human characteristics by the constellation at birth, the cultural epochs and the passage of the equinox, cosmic influences on the individual and humanity, life in the planetary spheres between death and rebirth, solar and lunar eclipses, comets, and much more.

<B>At Home in the Universe: Exploring Our Suprasensory Nature </B><I> Exploring Our Suprasensory Nature</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  COLLISON, H.
9 At Home in the Universe: Exploring Our Suprasensory Nature Exploring Our Suprasensory Nature
STEINER, RUDOLF, COLLISON, H.
0880104732 / 9780880104739 2000 Paperback 
Modern science tells us that we are an insignificant accident in a vast, indifferent universe. Rudolf Steiner maintains instead that we are intimately enmeshed with the whole cosmos, right down to the physical structure of our bodies. In these talks, he explores our relationship as individuals to the spiritual cosmos, in which we will all become cosmonauts, eventually. The key to being at home in the universe is to understand the significance of our individual, physical lives on earth and what happens when we leave our physical bodies behind.

Steiner encapsulates his view of our journey after death and our return to earth and a new life. He describes the "planetary" spheres through which we each pass and their effects on our future. He shows us how our character and actions on earth affect us after we die and how those experiences shape our next physical life.

This is not merely information to be added to our already over-abundant store of abstract concepts: Steiner gives us imaginative exercises that help us explore our suprasensory, or spiritual, human nature. We can begin now to act more consciously by recognizing the concrete nature of morality and the real consequences of our present lives.

The introduction and comprehensive afterword by Paul Margulies explain and contextualize Steiner's text, revealing a message that is more vital and relevant than ever in our frenzied, materialistic times. This book can help us experience more meaning in life and become more at home as spiritual citizens of the universe.

<B>Attack of the Enemy </B><I> 	 <br>The Occult Inspiration Behind Adolf Hitler and the Nazis <br>An Esoteric Study</I>, TAUTZ, JOHANNES
10 Attack of the Enemy
The Occult Inspiration Behind Adolf Hitler and the Nazis
An Esoteric Study

TAUTZ, JOHANNES
1906999716 / 9781906999711 Paperback 
The time of Nazi dictatorship in Germany (1933-45) consistently stimulates more interest than any other period of human history, as witnessed by the countless books and other media on Adolf Hitler and his leading henchmen. What is the basis for this enduring fascination? And, does the abundance of available material help us truly to understand the phenomenon?
In this clear-sighted study, Tautz concludes that there is an existential need for the human psyche to come to terms with the forces of destruction that broke out during the era of National Socialism. In an attempt to get to the essence of the phenomenon, he employs the method of ‘historical symtomatology’, as developed by the philosopher and scientist Rudolf Steiner. Through these means, ‘... the historical process is perceived as the physiognomic expression of spiritual forces’. By viewing events as symptoms, the outer facts become transparent to the hidden influences that lie behind them, and occult aspects are revealed.
Tautz focuses on the degenerate elements that inspired National Socialism – their meaning, nature and methods – and examines their manifestation in earthly events. He reveals the spiritual context in which these adversary, opposing forces erupted and attacked humanity – at a time when human consciousness had stepped over a new threshold. The Nazi functionaries and their spectral leader, whom he refers to as ‘the Medium’, willingly served these powers, whilst the bedazzled masses were largely passive. If we are serious about developing an egalitarian society today that corresponds to the present level of human evolution, he argues, we need to understand this period of tyranny in Germany at the deepest levels.
In addition to Tautz’s classic text, a new Appendix by Andreas Bracher brings the reader up to date with a survey of relevant literature on the theme as well as an insightful review of the Nazis’ attitude to Rudolf Steiner and the anthroposophical movement he founded. Contemporary extracts from the Völkische Beobachter (the Nazi’s house journal) indicate the viciousness and hatred directed towards Steiner and anthroposophy by the National Socialists.
JOHANNES TAUTZ – author, historian, religious scholar, anthroposophist and Waldorf teacher (at the first Steiner school in Stuttgart, Germany) – was born in 1914 in Koblenz. He studied German and History, graduating with a dissertation on Schelling. The author of W.J. Stein, A Biography, he lived in Darmstadt, Germany until his death in 2008.

STEINER, RUDOLF, TRANS & ED REG DOWN
1491201169 / 9781491201169 
In what was announced as a lecture Steiner instead begins to tell an extraordinary tale. It begins with two women standing in a stark and frozen landscape: one experiences the bitter cold, the other the extraordinary beauty. Both fall asleep, but while one falls into a sleep on the verge of death, the other is approached out of the sunset by a youth who says: ‘You are art’. She then undergoes a powerful set of experiences. Today we might call them vivid dreams, but that would be too passive. They are more than dreams; she performs deeds and becomes the bearer of mighty, creative impulses for the future.

This tale, told in 1909, has lost none of its originality and vividness. It is as relevant and powerful as when it was first told. It presents the reader with a series of images and beings drawn directly from the spiritual world, but in such a way that, through art, a bridge is built between the spiritual and earthly worlds.

This edition is freshly translated, with a foreword and endnotes containing illustrations and photographs of subjects and works of art mentioned in the course of the tale.

12 Beyond Religion The Cultural Evolution of the Sense of the Sacred, from Shamanism to Religion to Post-religious Spirituality
THOMPSON, WILLIAM IRWIN, PREFACE BY JOY E STOCKE
1584201517 / 9781584201519 
In an age of religious fundamentalist violence around the world, it is heartening to read poet and cultural historian William Irwin’s Thompson’s contention that a new form of post-religious spirituality is emerging in our planetary civilization, one that is more appropriate to our new electronic and globally interconnected noetic polities. This little book is a Vade Mecum of the cultural evolutionary news to keep in one’s pocket to read along with the day’s emotionally manipulative political news.

Thompson shows us that, like a dying star in supernova, the explosion of religious violence is a sign of medieval religions’ death and not their rebirth. The brilliant thirteenth-century Renaissance that gave us the Gothic Cathedrals and the Convivencia of Christian, Jews, and Muslims in southern Spain was followed by the Black Death and the Inquisition, but the Italian Renaissance still took off in  fifteenth-century Florence, as Giotto was followed by Fra Angelico and the syncretic school of Chartres was followed by Cosimo di Medici’s Florentine Academy. The Big Picture that the poet and cultural historian can provide enables us to participate in the larger processes of cultural transformation at work in our world.

<B>Biography: Freedom and Destiny </B><I> Enlightening the Path of Human Life</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  WEHRLE, P.
13 Biography: Freedom and Destiny Enlightening the Path of Human Life
STEINER, RUDOLF, WEHRLE, P.
1855842254 / 9781855842250 2009 Paperback 
This broad-ranging anthology addresses critical and still-unanswered questions: What are the effects of education especially contrasting educational methods on later life? How are the stages of one's life interrelated? Do the effects of events on the individual become immediately evident, or is their true impact delayed, perhaps for decades? To what extent can we shape the stages of our individual biographies? How much freedom of choice do we have, and how much of life is predetermined?

Drawing on his capacity for higher knowledge through spiritual research, Steiner describes the human individuality as a being with a continuing existence, both before birth and beyond death. Our eternal being experiences a myriad of conditions and situations, the effects of which may be observed in one's biography. This book addresses these and other issues such as freedom and destiny, the effects of heredity, illness, and the impact of education, offering answers based on a profound knowledge of the human being.

<B>Brain Is a Boundary </B><I> A Journey in Poems to the Borderlines of Lewy Body Dementia</I>, DREIER, ALEXANDER, INTRODUCTION BY  ARTHUR ZAJONC
14 Brain Is a Boundary A Journey in Poems to the Borderlines of Lewy Body Dementia
DREIER, ALEXANDER, INTRODUCTION BY ARTHUR ZAJONC
1584209976 / 9781584209973 
"Dreier’s words dance along the ledge where reality and imagination converge."
- Carolyn Jourdan, author of Heart in the Right Place and Medicine Men: Extreme Appalachian Doctoring

This unique volume explores the experience of the "boundaries" in consciousness that permeate our lives - for instance, between sleeping and waking, language and reality, life and death, lover and beloved, observer and observed. We often take such boundaries for granted. But there is one boundary that most of us are spared: the boundary between reality and delusion, sanity and madness. This little book touches upon all of these thresholds in a singular way.

The author, a poet, comedian, and student of consciousness, finds himself gradually slipping from observing and noting such boundaries to crossing over from one world to another: from the world of ordinary, if enhanced, intuitive or poetic reality and perception to that of Lewy body dementia. The Brain Is a Boundary records his journey.

These fifty-two poems - along with an introduction by Arthur Zajonc, former President of the Mind-Life Institute, an afterword by Bradley Boeve, a renowned specialist in neurology, and an essay by the author recounting his Lewy body experiences in prose - constitute a remarkable and unique testimony that gives voice to an aspect of human experience that is all too often mute and ignored.

PRAISE FOR THE BRAIN IS A BOUNDARY . . .

“Alexander Dreier is a poet. To me, he is in the company of poets like e.e. cummings, who explores mystery with wit, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, who celebrates ‘all things counter, spare, original, strange.’ As a poet, he is brilliant, funny, original. His work is magical, mystical, and everywhere compassionate and witty. He takes us into darkness and gives us night vision. He is a bringer of light. His poems are the stuff of literature—the kind that changes and enlarges the vision of the reader. Unforgettable.” —Pat Schneider, author of Writing Alone and With Others and How the Light Gets In: Writing as a Spiritual Practice

“Lewy body disease is complex, with a myriad of symptoms that can be challenging to treat and manage. These beautifully written poems are an eloquent, inspiring example of resilience and creativity in the face of this life-changing illness.” —Jennifer Rose V. Molano, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine, The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

"Our God is the God of Heaven and Earth, of sea and river, of sun and moon and stars, of the lofty mountain and lowly valley." -- St. Patrick

These words are perhaps the epitome of the Celtic monk's holy embrace of nature and sense of "ecology." Everywhere in Celtic Ireland, on rocky promontories and lonely hillsides, in hermitages and monasteries, we find a holy intimacy of human, natural, and divine.

In this anthology, the stories of the Celtic saints are interspersed with verses, prayers, and sayings attributed to those ancient sages -- from Patrick and Brigit, through Brandan and Columba, to Aidan and Cuthbert.

It is uncertain when or how Christianity first arrived at those westernmost reaches. It seems always to have been there. Legend tells us that Irish bards attended the events on Golgotha "in the spirit." In the Celtic tradition there is a continuity in cosmic process. For the Celt, Christ's death and resurrection was a healing that allows a reconciliation between humanity and nature in God. In this sense, Christianity was always in Ireland, and we seek its historical beginning in vain.

If the Celtic Church had survived, perhaps the fissure between Christianity and nature, widening through the centuries, would never have fragmented our Western attitude toward nature and the universe.

"Almost as good as another visit to Iona." -- Owen Barfield

"It is, indeed, a treasure of an anthology, and I will enjoy dipping into it over and over again. It speaks of a vibrant Christianity in which the power of light was brilliantly visible and the spoken word touches on that power of love and creativity." -- Madeleine L'Engle

In these four remarkable lectures, Rudolf Steiner contends that Christ has been working on humanity's behalf since the very beginnings of its existence, long before the inception of the Christian religion. Steiner indicates how - in both the ancient Mystery schools and in the miraculous events depicted in the Old Testament - the guiding hand of Christ shaped and developed peoples' cognition.

The ultimate divine intervention took place in the incarnation of Christ in human form - God in man - which culminated in the Mystery of Golgotha. Through this mighty event, opportunity is given for every soul to develop immortal individuality and consciousness of self. Steiner clarifies the difficult concepts of sin, guilt and karma, and explains the meaning of "forgiveness of sins" and "resurrection of the body". Looking forward to future great periods of evolution, he speaks of the separation of humanity into two races of good and evil, and describes how Christ will continue to work in this critical time of human development.

<B>Christianity as Mystical Fact and the Mysteries of Antiquity </B><I> </I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  WELBURN, A.
20 Christianity as Mystical Fact and the Mysteries of Antiquity
STEINER, RUDOLF, WELBURN, A.
0880104368 / 9780880104364 2006 Paperback 
During the fall and winter of 1901-1902, Steiner gave a series of lectures called "Christianity As Mystical Fact" to members of the Theosophical Society. The lectures were rewritten and issued as a book later that year. They mark a watershed in the development of Western esotericism. Stiener wrote of the idea behind his book: "The title "Christianity As Mystical Fact" was one I gave to this work eight years ago, when I gathered together the content of lectures given in 1902. It was meant to indicate the special approach adopted in the book. Its theme is not just the mystical side of Christianity in a historical presentation. It was meant to show, from the standpoint of a mystical awareness, how Christianity came into being. Behind this was the idea that spiritual happenings were factors in the emergence of Christianity, which could only be observed from such a point of view. It is for the book itself to demonstrate that, by "mystical," I do not in any way imply a vague intuition rather than strict scientific argument. In many circles, mysticism is understood as just that, and therefore it is distinguished from the concerns of all "genuine" science."
"In this book, however, I use the term to mean a "presentation of spiritual reality" - a reality accessible only to a knowledge drawn from the sources of spiritual life itself. Anyone who denies the possibility of such knowledge in principle will find its contents hard to comprehend; any reader who accepts the idea that mysticism may coexist with the clarity of the natural sciences, may acknowledge that the mystical aspect of Christianity must be described mystically." This is a fundamental book, in Steiner's own development, in that of Western esotericism, and for our understanding of the Christ event. Readers will find the evolutionary development from the ancient mysteries through the great Greek philosophers to the events portrayed in the Gospels.
