<B>A Spiritual Roadmap </B><I> Walking the Path in the Twenty-first Century</I>, BURTON, MICHAEL HEDLEY
1 A Spiritual Roadmap Walking the Path in the Twenty-first Century
1621481603 / 9781621481607 
An investigation into the "threshold" - what it is, how humanity is meeting it today, and how it can be crossed.

"I am being driven forward
into an unknown land.
The pass grows steeper,
the air colder and sharper.
A wind from my unknown goal
stirs the strings
of expectation.

Still the question:
will I ever get there?
There where life resounds,
a clear, pure note
in the silence."
- Dag Hammarskjöld

The phrase "walk the path" is a metaphor for the life journey of those who aim toward spiritual illumination. We all have our own unique journey in life, and no one can walk that path for us or prescribe the way we should go. Nevertheless, we sometimes encounter a fellow traveler along the way with whom insights and experiences can be shared. There is much to discuss, because today we can no longer rely on the dogmas and orthodoxies of human history. Spiritual illumination today demands a path of knowledge without preconception and fixed worldviews.

This book is written for those who have come to the point of deciding that the best thing they can do for the good of the earth and for their own fulfillment is to approach life as a quest for self-knowledge and true inner freedom. For them, this book will be an invaluable roadmap and guide for the many important milestones and crossroads we encounter in life. Michael Burton offers seven chapters that echo the seven stages of the alchemical process of illumination. It is written in such a way that it not only imparts information but also engages the reader’s life of feeling and will. No one can read this book and not be challenged to walk the path toward inner transformation.

New Zealander Michael Burton is based in Sydney and works as a writer, speech performer, actor, speech therapist, and voice teacher. He is the writer of the script for an international project to perform a play that follows on from the four initiation dramas of Rudolf Steiner. He gives performances in a number of countries of his one-man drama, Shakespeare and the Mystery of the Human Being (2003).

<B>Archetypal Cosmos </B><I> Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology.  Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology</I>, GRICE, KEIRON LE
4 Archetypal Cosmos Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology. Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology
0863157750 / 9780863157752 2010 Paperback 
The modern world is passing through a time of critical change on many levels: cultural, political, ecological and spiritual. We are witnessing the decline and dissolution of the old order, the tumult and uncertainty of a new birth. Against this background, there is an urgent need for a coherent framework of meaning to guide and to lead us beyond the growing fragmentation of culture, belief and personal identity.

Keiron Le Grice argues that the developing insights of a new cosmology could provide this framework, helping us to discover an underlying order shaping our life experiences. In a compelling synthesis of the ideas of seminal thinkers from depth psychology and the new paradigm sciences, Le Grice positions the new discipline of archetypal astrology at the centre of an emerging world view that reunifies psyche and cosmos, spirituality and science, mythology and metaphysics, and enables us to see mythic gods, heroes and themes in a fresh light. He draws especially on the work of C. G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, Richard Tarnas, Fritjof Capra, David Bohm and Brian Swimme.
Heralding a 'rediscovery of the gods' and the passage into a new spiritual era, The Archetypal Cosmos presents a new understanding of the role of myth and archetypal principles in our lives, one that could give a cosmic perspective and deeper meaning to our personal experiences.

<B>Art as Spiritual Activity </B><I> Lectures and Writings by Rudolf Steiner</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  HOWARD, MICHAEL, QC,  CREEGER, C.E.
5 Art as Spiritual Activity Lectures and Writings by Rudolf Steiner
0880103965 / 9780880103961 1998 Paperback 
Although trained as a scientist and a philosopher, Rudolf Steiner always placed a high value on the practice of art and always worked artistically: whatever he did was done with great artistry. Furthermore, as a spiritual teacher, Steiner's ideal was the reunion of science, religion, and art in a new, human sacramental culture. The eleven lectures collected here reveal the many-faceted perspectives Steiner offered regarding the vital role of the visual arts in human affairs. For Steiner, art is above all a way of building a bridge between the spiritual and the physical realms. His views are not abstract theories or utopian ideals, but a constant striving through the inherent qualities of color and form to realize concrete artistic projects in architecture, sculpture, and painting.

On first meeting Steiner's radical ideas, many people -- artists as well as non-artists -- wonder what sense they can make of such an approach to art. The introduction by Michael Howard introduces these ideas by recounting one artist's experience of struggling to make Steiner's views and way of doing art his own. Ultimately, however each person must make their own relationship to Steiner's approach, but the story of how one artist took up the challenge may stimulate others to do the same. The book includes numerous photographs.

<B>Astrogeographia </B><I> Correspondences Between the Stars and Earthly Locations</I>, POWELL, ROBERT,  BOWDEN, DAVID
6 Astrogeographia Correspondences Between the Stars and Earthly Locations
1584201339 / 9781584201335 2013 Paperback 
'We can conceive of the active heavenly sphere mirrored in the Earth.' -- Rudolf Steiner
"As above, so below" is the foundation of all star wisdom. It was known in ancient times that there are correspondences between the macrocosm (heavenly realm) and the microcosm (human being) and the Earth. Astrogeographia is a modern form of that ancient star wisdom.
According to the astronomer Johannes Kepler:
There radiates into the Earth soul an image of the sense-perceptible zodiac and the whole firmament as a bond of sympathy between Heaven and Earth.... This imprint into the Earth soul through the sense-perceptible zodiac and the entire sphere of fixed stars is also confirmed through observation.
And Rudolf Steiner said in his course on astronomy, "We can conceive of the active heavenly sphere mirrored in the Earth." The authors of Astrogeographia set out to determine the correspondences between the starry heavens and the earthly globe—As above, so below.
There are many books on the sacredness and the spirituality of our Earth. Few books, however, deal with the relationship between the Earth and the cosmos, which is the central theme for the research presented in this book. Its point of departure is the one-to-one correspondence between the encircling starry heavens—the celestial sphere—and the sphere of the earthly globe. David Bowden has not only worked out the mathematics of this one-to-one correspondence, but has also written a computer program that applies it in practice. Thus, a new science has been born—Astrogeographia—concerning the one-to-one correspondence between the earthly sphere and the celestial sphere.

094580329X / 9780945803294 
Now $13.00 (RRP $26.00)
Contemplation, meditation and healing.

The central theme of these essays is: that we can creatively participate in what can be called 'reality-in-becoming.' But to do so requires using our will and strength to sustain and embrace a certain kind of inner tension which surfaces when we find ourselves within the activity of reconciling and integrating the contradictions between the poles of the soul-spiritual and the empirical-sensorial, between idealism and dogmatism, between the arrogance that 'it all depends on us' and a passive belief that our destiny is predetermined-by divine powers or a calculable physical-material course of events. We can witness the sphere in which the manifesting events prepare themselves, we can experience our own witnessing, and within this witnessing we can experience our freedom to change perspectives-with the consequence that different options are offered for our manifesting will, the choice of which can in turn change the quality and direction of the course of events. ?from the Preface

Friedemann Schwarzkopf (1947?2003) was a longtime student of the work of Rudolf Steiner, especially Biodynamic agriculture, the Goethean approach to science, and Rudolf Steiner's Philosophy of Freedom.

<B>Beyond Religion </B><I> The Cultural Evolution of the Sense of the Sacred, from Shamanism to Religion to Post-religious Spirituality</I>, THOMPSON, WILLIAM IRWIN, PREFACE BY JOY E STOCKE
8 Beyond Religion The Cultural Evolution of the Sense of the Sacred, from Shamanism to Religion to Post-religious Spirituality
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.

9 Biology of Transcendence, The A Blueprint of the Human Spirit
1594770166 / 9781594770166 2004 Paperback 
13 b&w illustrations
This latest research identifies our five neural centres - or brains - and establishes that our fourth and most recently developed brain is located in the head while the fifth is located in the heart. It is the dynamic interaction of this head brain (intellect) and heart brain (intelligence), of biology and spirit, that allows transcendence from one evolutionary place to the next--we are, quite literally, made to transcend. Conversely, it is the breakdown of this interaction through the effects of cultural dictates surrounding us from the time we are children that keeps us where we are, mired in the current crises of violence among people and between people and the planet. But Pearce reminds us that we are not stuck for good. Transcendence is our biological imperative, a state we have been moving toward for millennia.

10 Bodhisattva Question Krishnamurti, Rudolf Steiner, Valentin Tomberg, and the Mystery of the Twentieth-century Master. Krishnamurti, Rudolf Steiner, Valentin Tomberg, and the Mystery of the Twentieth-century Master
1906999198 / 9781906999193 2010 Paperback 
'Enthusiastic readers are sometimes heard to say of a book: "I couldn't put it down" This is obviously either a metaphor or else a gross hyperbole. But I can't recall any book as to which in my case it came nearer to the literal truth than The Bodhisattva Question.' - Owen Barfield

The twelve sublime beings known, according to eastern tradition, as the Bodhisattvas, are the great teachers of humanity. One after another they descend into earthly incarnation, until they fulfil their earthly mission. At this point they rise to Buddahood and are no longer obliged to return in a physical form. But before a Bodhisattva becomes a Buddha, he announces the name of his successor...

According to Rudolf Steiner, the future Maitreya Buddha - or the 'Bringer of Good', as his predecessor named him - incarnated in a human body in the twentieth century. Presuming this to be so, then who was this person? The Theosophists believed they had discovered the Bodhisattva in an Indian boy, Krishnamurti, who grew up to be a teacher of some magnitude. Adolf Arenson and Elisabeth Vreede, both students of Rudolf Steiner, made independent examinations of this question in relation to Steiner's personal mission, and were led to contrasting conclusions. More recently a claim has been made that Valentin Tomberg - a student of anthroposophy but later an influential Roman Catholic - was the Bodhisattva. These conflicting theories are analysed by Thomas Meyer, who demonstrates how the question can be useful as an exercise in developing sound judgement in spiritual matters.

Elisabeth Vreede's two lectures on the subject, included here in full, are a valuable contribution to our understanding of the true nature and being of Rudolf Steiner.

T.H. MEYER was born in Switzerland in 1950. He is the founder of Perseus Verlag, Basel, and is editor of the monthly journal Der Europaer. He has written numerous articles and is the author of several books including Reality, Truth and Evil, Facts Questions and Perspectives on September 11, 2001; Clairvoyance and Consciousness; The Bodhisattva Question, and major biographies of D.N. Dunlop and Ludwig Polzer-Hoditz. He also edited Light for the New Millennium, Rudolf Steiner's Association with Helmuth and Eliza von Moltke.

<B>Bridge Between Universal Spirituality and the Physical Constitution of Man </B><I> </I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  OSMOND, D.S.
11 Bridge Between Universal Spirituality and the Physical Constitution of Man
0910142033 / 9780910142038 2007 Paperback 
Rudolf Steiner addresses the following topics in these lectures. Soul-and-Spirit in Man's Physical Constitution: The physical organism of man is considered today to consist of more or less solid-fluid substances; but as well as his solid, physical body, man has within him as definite organisms, a fluid body, an air-body and a warmth-body. It covers: the connections of these organisms with the members of man's whole being and with the different Ethers; thought and tone; ego and circulating Blood; man in the sleeping state; man's relation to the universal Spirituality; and, imagination, inspiration, intuition. The circumscribed view of the human organism prevailing today is unable to build any bridge between the physical body and the soul-and-spirit.The Moral as the Source of World-Creative Power: Recapitulation of previous lecture. It covers connection of the moral world-order with the physical world-order. The moral world-order has no place in the natural scientific thinking of today.
It includes: the positive effect of moral ideals and ideas and the negative effect of theoretical ideas on the four organisms in man; the materialistic conception of the imperishability of matter and energy. Matter and energy die away to nullity. But man's moral thinking imbues life into substance and will. The natural world dies away in man; in the realm of the moral a new natural world comes into being; thus are the moral order and the natural order connected.It covers: absence of spirituality in the modern picture of the world which is based on the Copernican system. Kepler and Newton - We need a spiritual view of the universe. The sun is not a globe of burning gas but the reflection of a spiritual reality revealed in the physical. The moral power developed by man rays out and is reflected as the spiritual Sun. Julian the Apostate - the connection of the spiritual Sun with the physical sun is the Christ-Secret.The Path to Freedom and Love and Their Significance in World-Events: Man as a being of Thinking, Action and Feeling.
It covers: the connection of the life of thought with the will; pure thinking: irradiation of the life of thought by will - this leads to Freedom; irradiation of the life of will by thoughts leads to Love; the meaning of the ancient expressions - semblance, power, wisdom. To speak of the imperishability of matter and energy annuls Love - the significance of Freedom and Love in world-happenings.

13 Chartres
0863153917 / 9780863153914 
From the author of bestseller Jesus the Master Builder. Gordon Strachan, is back with a ground-breaking new work. In this book he explores the magnificent structure of Chartres Cathedral, and examines the influences on the medieval master builders. Using Chartres as a starting point, Dr Strachan suggests that the origins of the Gothic style may lie in Islamic architecture. He goes on to consider how the experience of a particular architectural space affects us, and how sacred geometry works.

Beautifully illustrated in a large format, this is an inspiring and informative book for anyone interested in religious architecture and spirituality.

Gordon Strachan (1934-2010) was a lecturer, church minister and independent thinker. He is the author of six books: The Pentecostal Theology of Edward Irving; Christ and the Cosmos (later republished as The Bible's Hidden Cosmology); Jesus the Master Builder; Chartres: Sacred Geometry, Sacred Space; The Return of Merlin; and Prophets of Nature.

The question of the cosmic reality of Christ is central to modern Christian awareness. We see lively debate about Christ's nature in relation to the earth and creation, not only within the church itself but also in more speculative areas of thinking and feeling, such as creation spirituality and the New Age movement.

The works of Teilhard de Chardin and Fritjof Capra have stimulated many to think spiritually about the created world and the part of humankind in its evolution. These issues were also illuminated by Rudolf Steiner in his Christology which placed the Incarnation at a pivotal point of earthly evolution.

<B>Death as Metamorphosis of Life </B><I> </I>, STEINER, RUDOLF
15 Death as Metamorphosis of Life
0880106077 / 9780880106078 2008 Paperback 
This jewel of a book — consisting of seven lectures given in various cities, mostly in 1918 — movingly and with great spiritual maturity and rare emotional intensity expresses Rudolf Steiner’s wisdom, insight, and compassion. Several lectures deal primarily with aspects of life after death. The first describes the three realms after earthly life: that of intense, surging sensation (sympathy and antipathy); that of the ebb and flow of will impulses that stream into the human sphere, affecting in increasingly wider circles human life on earth (karmic relationships, animal existence); and that of the spiritual hierarchies. As Steiner says: "As I see it, my primary mission these days is to make people aware again, with the help of such ideas, that the dead are working and contributing to human development."

The following lectures amplify this mission in different ways, explicitly and implicitly. At stake is the need to understand that we are spiritual beings and live in perpetual interaction with the spiritual world—not only the dead, but also with Christ and angelic worlds. These realities, along with the presence of the dead, permeate this book. The final two lectures make this explicit with a clarion call to awake to the demands of human evolution, which the entire spiritual world is working for—freedom and love, which in turn requires our work with the angels and with Christ to overcome egotism, the sole obstacle to the spirituality of the future.

Death as Metamorphosis of Life is a translation from the German of Der Tod als Lebenswandlung (GA 182).

<B>Earth-Friendly </B><I> Re-Visioning Science and Spirituality through Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, and Rudolf Steiner</I>, HOFSTETTER, ADRIAN
16 Earth-Friendly Re-Visioning Science and Spirituality through Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, and Rudolf Steiner
1584200235 / 9781584200239 Paperback 
Earth-Friendly collects the fruits of a lifetime of study and teaching in search of a holistic, organismic, living science, respectful of the sacredness of nature and the ubiquity of the spirit. As a biology philosopher, Sister Adrian’s first teachers were Aquinas and Aristotle; later she came to know the work of Goethe and Rudolf Steiner.

Earth-Friendly traces the development of Sister Adrian’s conviction that "the spiritual science flowing from the thought of St. Albert and St.Thomas, as developed seven hundred years later by Rudolf Steiner, could recapture the true greatness of the West as it reaches out to the East to create an ‘earth-friendly re-visioning of science and spirituality.' "

“These luminous essays reflect the thought and deep work of a woman whose long and brilliant life has engaged some of the most profound revelations of our time. As mystic-activist, spiritual scientist, and endless enquirer into the workings of the world, she brings fresh and radical perspective that stuns as it awakens the reader. Earth-Friendly is at once an education for the new century and an inspiration for those who would make a difference, and even, a new creation.” —Jean Houston, Ph.D, author of A Mythic Life : Learning to Live our Greater Story

“Earth-Friendly invites us to follow Adrian Hofstetter's explorations of a new kind of science, one rooted in a clear and profound epistemology that allows the wholeness of nature to become visible. These essays let us participate in a personal spiritual journey to overcome the rifts between philosophy, religion, and science that characterized the 20th Century. We can learn much from them.” —Craig Holdrege, author of Genetics and the Manipulation of Life

“May her witness inspire other generations to let a vision of faith open the human dimensions of science, as mentors like Owen Barfield and Rudolph Steiner guide us to a contemporary Thomas Aquinas. The convergences are nearly miraculous but never forced, showing how much a personal search for understanding can realize-for others.” —David B.

17 Eightfold Path, The
A Way of Development for those Working in Education, Therapy and the Caring Professions

1906999880 / 9781906999889 2016 
Centuries before the birth of Christ, Buddha taught a path of love, compassion and forgiveness originating from his experiences of suffering in the world. The cause of suffering, he believed, lay within the soul, which had become self-centred and egotistic. Buddha inaugurated the Eightfold Path for purification and transformation – eight exercises which could lead to a new relationship with the world, from self-centredness to a warm interest in one’s environment and in other people. The exercises, described and explained here in their correct sequence – with each preparing the individual for the next step – are: the right view, the right resolve, the right word, the right action, the right standpoint, the right effort, the right remembrance and the right contemplation.

In this small book, based on commentary given by Rudolf Steiner as well as his own intensive work with many groups, Joop van Dam has created a practical guide for anyone wishing to take up this path of personal development. He gives particular focus to the benefit that can be gained from the Eightfold Path by those in the educational, therapeutic and caring professions.

JOOP VAN DAM was a medical doctor for 40 years in Haarlem, the Netherlands. Now retired, he is still active as a lecturer in educational and medical programmes and in the Anthroposophical Society in the Netherlands, of which he was President for seven years. He is the author of several publications, including The Sixfold Path.

18 Esoteric Background of Waldorf Education The Cosmic Christ Impulse
0945803257 / 9780945803256 
For Waldorf teachers and those interested in the spiritual basis of Waldorf education.
The Leitmotif of this book is inspired from [the following] passages in the fifth lecture of Education as a Social Problem, given by Rudolf Steiner in Dornach on 16 August, 1919, shortly before the opening of the first Waldorf school in Stuttgart:
One should not look superficially at the so-called cultural phenomena of our age. Nor should one doubt that modern human beings have to arouse themselves to a real comprehension of the Christ Impulse if evolution is to go forward in a healthy way. . . .
This is also something future educators and teachers must take into their consciousness. . . . One must teach out of an awareness that one has to bring about salvation in the case of every individual child; one has to steer him towards finding the Christ Impulse in the course of his life, towards finding a re-birth within himself. . . .
Such things must not live in the teacher as mere theory; they can be introduced into one's teaching only if one is strongly taken hold of by them in one's own soul. . . . ‘The best in me as a human being of this and following incarnations is what I find in myself as the Christ Impulse.' . . . We must, however, be clear that this Christ Impulse must not be the dogmatism of some religious body. . . Human intelligence left to itself travels on the path towards the Ahrimanic; it can become active for the good only through taking in the true Christ Impulse.

19 Esoteric Cosmology, An Evolution, Christ and Modern Spirituality
0880105933 / 9780880105934 Paperback 
"These priceless lectures mark a significant phase of Rudolf Steiner’s thought - that of the spontaneous burst of his genius and its first crystallization. Indeed, his notes record perhaps the first general outline and summary of what would become Anthroposophy, or spiritual science" Edward Schure
One purpose of these lectures was to outline Steiner’s Christ-centered spiritual science in contrast to the more Eastern orientation of Theosophy. He carefully connected the essence of spiritual science to the role of the Christ in human evolution, as well as to the Rosicrucian and Christian mystery traditions, the primary carriers of the esoteric Christian stream. To accomplish this, Steiner presented the roots of Christianity in the ancient mysteries and in the evolution of the whole universe itself.

The conception of freedom today is increasingly connected to the realms of economics, politics, and religion. But what really is freedom in its essence, and does it have a spiritual aspect? Through the use of narrative and discussion, Edward Warren helps clarify this central human question, focusing particularly on ideas derived from Rudolf Steiner's The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity. Observing Steiner's wish that his main philosophical book should be reworked for every new generation, Warren treats the theme in a fresh and lively manner.
