<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
1 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>At the Threshold of the Modern Age </B><I> Biographies Around the Year 1861</I>, KONIG, KARL,  BLAXLAND-DE LANGE, SIMON
3 At the Threshold of the Modern Age Biographies Around the Year 1861
0863158455 / 9780863158452 2011 Paperback 
The late nineteenth-century was an era of contrasts. On the one hand, philosophical materialism was increasing its influence over science. On the other, there was a growing social awareness and quest for spiritual values. Karl Konig explores the personal stories of twenty-nine pioneers whose work and experiences helped shape that era. They include artists and writers, social reformers, philosophers and political activists, and scientists. He considers how they responded as individuals to the challenges of the changing world around them. His insights and conclusions are relevant for us today, as we face our own time of change and upheaval. The biographies include Helen Keller (1880-1968), Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), Lou Salome (1861-1937), Gustav Mahler (1860-1911), Charles Darwin (1809-1882) and Adolf von Hildebrand (1847-1921).

<B>Awakening the Will </B><I> Principles and Processes in Adult Learning</I>, VAN HOUTEN, COENRAAD
4 Awakening the Will Principles and Processes in Adult Learning
1902636112 / 9781902636115 
How do adults learn?
What is the task of the adult educator in adult education?
What can adults do to take charge of their learning process?

Learning means change and transformation. But in order to learn, argues Coenraad van Houten, we must first awaken our will. True adult education, he says, enables our spiritual ego to accomplish this. He describes the forms in which learning can be meaningfully structured, and offers advice and ideas to help overcome specific learning blockages.

The book regards the business of adult education as a full profession, and it provides a theoretical and practical basis for its true task: an awakening of the will.

COENRAAD VAN HOUTEN was born in the Netherlands. After studying Chemistry, Economics and 'Social Pedagogy', he lived and worked in Indonesia, Hong Kong and Britain as a manager in business, as a consultant, and as the director of the Centre for Social Development (which he co-founded). He has developed specialist programmes and seminars on adult education, 'destiny learning' and the path of spiritual research, and presently advises organizations on training programmes. He is the author of two books and the co-founder of the New Adult Learning Movement.

5 Because People Matter
1931044457 / 9781931044455 2003 Paperback 
Now $11.25 (RRP $22.50)
black & white illustrations
Our economy is focused on growth and profit. In any given business, success is measured by the flow of money, not the interest of the people involved. In Because People Matter, author Jurriaan Kamp tells us why there are better alternatives. Kamp argues that the world economy is not only based on money, but on human choices as well. It is those human choices that can promote the change necessary to transform our current crisis into a healthier economy that serves everyone. He offers insights on subjects such as a new method of dealing with national income; taxing the use of raw materials rather than income; a world trade based on reciprocity; money without interest; and the liability of shareholders and managers for negligence and environmental damage. Borrowing ideas from prominent economists, Kamp offers a coherent set of conditions for an economy in which it is the people that matter. Jurriaan Kamp is the former chief economics editor of NRC Handelsblad, a prominent Dutch newspaper, and is the founder and editor of the magazine Ode. "A wonderful and concise handbook of how modern economic theory has dealt a body blow to the prospect of a humane world.
Jurriaan kamp also shows the vectors of change that can lead us away from being economic ciphers to a system that enlivens and redefines what it means to be a human being." Paul Hawken, Environmentalist, entrepreneur and best-selling author of The Ecology of Commerce "A powerfully persusaive chronicle of why opposition to the current brand of globalization is certain to grow."

<B>Becoming Human </B><I> A Social Task - The Threefold Social Order</I>, KONIG, KARL,  STEEL, RICHARD,  DYSON, CARLOTTA
6 Becoming Human A Social Task - The Threefold Social Order
0863158099 / 9780863158094 2011 Paperback 
Karl Konig, the founder of the Camphill Movement, was very aware of the need for change in the social order he saw around him. In this revealing collection of imaginative thought and ideas, he shows, however, that true social change must begin in individuals. He goes on to say that renewal is something each human being can practise themselves, in the midst of their everyday life.

<B>Beginnings of Christianity: </B><I> Essene Mystery, Gnostic Revelation and the Christian Vision</I>, WELBURN, ANDREW J.
7 Beginnings of Christianity: Essene Mystery, Gnostic Revelation and the Christian Vision
0863154484 / 9780863154485 2004 Paperback 
Early Christianity had a powerful esoteric current. This is reflected in the New Testament writings of Mark, Paul and above all, John. Gnostic Christians tried to preserve this tradition, using the archaic mysteries as a way to knowledge (gnosis) of higher cosmic truths. But the Gnostic sects were finally suppressed by an orthodoxy which, Andrew Welburn concludes, had lost sight of the 'dynamic of the self'. The full scope of the traditions on which the Gnostics drew is clearer following the modern archaeological finds at Qumran and Nag Hammadi. As a result of these discoveries, the boundaries have started to fade between the ancient pagan mysteries, Jewish tradition, especially as found in the Essene sect, and early Christian belief. Welburn discovers a real kinship between this present age and the early Christians, and shows how, in a way not possible for the Reformation Church, we now have the change to rediscover the spiritual world and meaning of Christian beginnings.

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 the Medical Meltdown </B><I> </I>, ZIEVE, ROBERT J, M.D.,  ZIEVE, MD ROBERT
9 Beyond the Medical Meltdown
0880105720 / 9780880105729 2006 Paperback / softback 
Beyond the Medical Meltdown demonstrates that there is enough quality health care and enough money to pay for it, that more drugs and surgery is not necessarily better, and that the present health care quandary does not need to be the way it is. But to see this and to change health care will require enough people to wake up, think outside the box, and take action. We are on a threshold. Health care as we have known it is dying. What we have come to see as "normal" medicine is not "healthy" medicine. To quote Dr. John Abramson of Harvard, we have an "overdo$ed America." Health care today is a manipulated market, not a free market. It is neither effective nor affordable for most people in the United States. In both the public sector and the private business world, it is a top-down, over-controlled system. This must change. Dr. Robert Zieve details how to create a bottom-up approach, which is necessary if health care is going to work for all of us.

<B>Bhagavad Gita, The </B><I> </I>, PATTON, LAURIE L
10 Bhagavad Gita, The
0140447903 / 9780140447903 
'Know this: that with which all this world is woven is not to be destroyed. No one is able to effect the destruction of the imperishable'

The Bhagavad Gita is an early epic poem that recounts the conversation between Arjuna the warrior and his charioteer Krishna, the manifestation of God. In the moments before a great battle, the dialogue sets out the important lessons Arjuna must learn to change the outcome of the war he is to fight, and culminates in Krishna revealing to the warrior his true cosmic form, counselling him to search for the universal perfection of life. Ranging from instructions on yoga postures to dense moral discussion, the Gita is one of the most important Hindu texts, as well as serving as a practical guide to living well.

Laurie patton's accessible and elegant new translation reflects The Bhagavad Gita's status as both an aesthetic and a social document, and her introduction examines the structure of the poem and the various commentaries on it through the ages. This edition also includes suggested further reading and a glossary of terms.

<B>Book of Greek and Roman Folktales, Legends and Myths </B><I> </I>, HANSEN, WILLIAM
11 Book of Greek and Roman Folktales, Legends and Myths
0691170150 / 9780691170152 
Captured centaurs and satyrs, talking animals, people who suddenly change sex, men who give birth, the temporarily insane and the permanently thick-witted, delicate sensualists, incompetent seers, a woman who remembers too much, a man who cannot laugh--these are just some of the colorful characters who feature in the unforgettable stories that ancient Greeks and Romans told in their daily lives. Together they created an incredibly rich body of popular oral stories that include, but range well beyond, mythology--from heroic legends, fairy tales, and fables to ghost stories, urban legends, and jokes. This unique anthology presents the largest collection of these tales ever assembled. Featuring nearly four hundred stories in authoritative and highly readable translations, this is the first book to offer a representative selection of the entire range of traditional classical storytelling.  

Set mostly in the world of humans, not gods, these stories focus on figures such as lovers, tricksters, philosophers, merchants, rulers, athletes, artists, and soldiers. The narratives range from the well-known--for example, Cupid and Psyche, Diogenes and his lantern, and the tortoise and the hare--to lesser-known tales that deserve wider attention. Entertaining and fascinating, they offer a unique window into the fantasies, anxieties, humor, and passions of the people who told them.  

Complete with beautiful illustrations by Glynnis Fawkes, a comprehensive introduction, notes, and more, this one-of-a-kind anthology will delight general readers as well as students of classics, fairy tales, and folklore.

William Hansen, Professor Emeritus of classical studies and folklore at Indiana University, Bloomington, is one of the world's leading authorities on classical folklore. His books include Classical Mythology: A Guide to the Mythical World of the Greeks and Romans, Ariadne's Thread: A Guide to International Tales Found in Classical Literature, and Anthology of Ancient Greek Popular Literature. He lives in Bloomington.

<B>Building Stones for an Understanding of the Mystery of Golgotha </B><I> Human Life in a Cosmic Context (CW175)</I>, STEINER, RUDOLF
12 Building Stones for an Understanding of the Mystery of Golgotha Human Life in a Cosmic Context (CW175)
1855844206 / 9781855844209 
17 lectures, Berlin, Feb.–May. 1917, CW 175
‘If one is unable to conceive of the Christ mystery as a true reality, one also cannot develop any ideas and concepts relating to the rest of world existence that are imbued with reality, which really penetrate to the truth’. – Rudolf Steiner
In a series of 17 lectures, Rudolf Steiner throws new light on the historical background and esoteric meaning of what he refers to as the central event of human and earthly history: the Christ mystery or ‘the Mystery of Golgotha’. Basing his commentaries on personal spiritual research, Steiner emphasizes the key nature of the Mystery of Golgotha, through which ‘...something was accomplished which has to do not with the moral order alone but with the whole world-order in its entirety’. This relates to a transformation of the spiritual environment of the earth and a potentially radical change in human consciousness.
Building on the core themes of this course, Steiner presents a variety of fascinating topics, including: original sin and the idea of resurrection; faith and knowledge; the nature of sleep and the riddle of fatigue; the violation of the mysteries by the Roman Emperors; the teachings of Mani and Augustine; our relationship to the dead in spiritualistic séances; and the correspondence between the Platonic year, a day in a person’s life and a human life-time.
Although first delivered to audiences a century ago, these lectures have lost none of their resonance; indeed, their essential message is perhaps more relevant than ever. They are published here in a new translation and for the first time in a complete English edition.
‘So let us endeavour to make spiritual science our own not merely as a teaching but as a language, and then wait until we find the questions in this language that we may address to Christ. He will answer, yes He will answer!’

<B>Child as a Sense Organ </B><I> An Anthroposophic Understanding of the Imitation Processes</I>, SELG, PETER
13 Child as a Sense Organ An Anthroposophic Understanding of the Imitation Processes
1621481832 / 9781621481836 
“Because children’s ability to observe and perceive is unconscious, one does not notice how intensely and deeply the impressions coming from the surroundings enter their organization - not so much by way of various specific senses as through the general ‘sensory being’ of the child. It is generally known that the formation of the brain and of the nerves is completed by the change of teeth. During the first seven years, children’s nerve-and-sense organization, in its plasticity, could be likened to soft wax. During this time, not only do children receive the finest and most intimate impressions from the surroundings, but also, through the working of energy in the nerve-and-sense system, everything received unconsciously radiates and flows into the blood circulation, into the firmness and reliability of the breathing process, into the growth of the tissues, and into the formation of the muscles and skeleton. By means of the nerve-and-sense system, the body of children becomes like an imprint of the surroundings and, particularly, of the morality inherent in them.” —Rudolf Steiner
(Waldorf Education and Anthroposophy 2, p. 68)

The initial period of childhood is essentially about adapting to and incarnating on Earth and establishing a provisional balance between the “spiritual” and the “physical,” between the prenatal cosmic and the earthly factors. During this time, according to Rudolf Steiner, “all the forces of a child’s organization emanate from the neurosensory system.... By bringing respiration into harmony with neurosensory activity, we draw the spirit–soul element into the child’s physical life.”

Peter Selg investigates how children’s early experience of the world begins as an undifferentiated sensory relationship to their phenomenological environment. This aspect of a child’s incarnation leads to learning through imitation and to the process of recognizing “the Other” as a separate entity with which to interact.

In this cogent work, Peter Selg describes the early stages of childhood from the perspectives of conventional scientific and spiritual-scientific—anthropological and anthroposophic—research with the purpose of encouraging a new educational attitude in working with young children. In his numerous references to early childhood development, this was Rudolf Steiner’s most important and urgent purpose.

PETER SELG was born in 1963 in Stuttgart and studied medicine in Witten-Herdecke, Zurich, and Berlin. Until 2000, he worked as the head physician of the juvenile psychiatry department of Herdecke hospital in Germany. Dr. Selg is now director of the Ita Wegman Institute for Basic Research into Anthroposophy (Arlesheim, Switzerland) and professor of medicine at the Alanus University of Arts and Social Sciences (Germany). He lectures extensively and is the author of numerous books, including Seeing Christ in Sickness and Healing (2005); The Thera­peutic Eye (2008); A Grand Metamorphosis; (2008); The Figure of Christ (2009); Rudolf Steiner as a Spiritual Teacher (2010); and Rudolf Steiner and the Fifth Gospel (2010). He is married with five children.

15 Consciousness in Action The Power of Beauty, Love, and Courage in a Violent Time
1590560795 / 9781590560792 Paperback 
Consciousness in Action features the thoughts of Julia Butterfly Hill, Deena Metzger, Joanna Macy, Ralph Metzner, John Mack, and many others in an inspiring dialogue between environmental and spiritual activists.

The seven attributes discussed are:
-Nonviolence amid passion
-Introspection and self-discovery
-Not knowing and spontaneity in the moment
-Eros, the way of loving-kindness
-No enemies and co-creating a healthier world
-Vision free of reaction to others
-Joy in opening of the heart

Andrew Beath writes: ''Our actions reveal our depth of connection. I define conscious activism as engagement in the world that expresses our most profound understanding of the nature of reality. It is imbued with appreciation and reverence and encourages compassionate connection�the basis for lasting social change.'' Consciousness in Action is a vital contribution to ongoing efforts toward a peaceful, habitable earth.

17 Creative Spiritual Research Awakening the Individual Human Spirit
1906999287 / 9781906999285 2011 Paperback 
This book... will appeal to those who are in touch with their inner creative impulses, or are motivated but do not know how to begin. The aim is to make this spiritual path possible for every person. It can change the way one relates to life and work - at first simply by an attitude shift, as a questioning, caring human being, taking seriously the spiritual forces that manifest in all outer phenomena.'
How do adults learn and develop? How can adult learning become a living, growing process?
Based on the application of the 'seven life processes', Coenraad van Houten has successfully developed the methods of 'Vocational Learning' (Awakening the Will, 1999) and 'Destiny Learning' (Practising Destiny, 2000). Here, in the culmination of his research trilogy, he presents a new path of adult learning which he calls 'Creative Spiritual Research'. Based on the inner spiritual path of the individual, this is a method that relates to esoteric schooling, thresholds of consciousness and human creativity.
Part One of Creative Spiritual Research features guidelines and exercises for individual practice, whilst Part Two focuses on the general schooling path as a preparation or precondition, opening the inner space needed for research as well as a questioning attitude.
COENRAAD VAN HOUTEN was born in the Netherlands in 1922. After studying Chemistry, Economics and Social Pedagogy, he lived and worked in Holland, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Britain as a manager in business, as a consultant, and as the director of the Centre for Social Development (which he co-founded). He has developed specialist programmes and seminars for educating adults, and presently advises organizations on training programmes. He is the author of Awakening the Will, Practising Destiny, The Threefold Nature of Destiny Learning, and is the co-founder of the New Adult Learning Movement.

0982375107 / 9780982375105 
71 pages, perfect bound
Didactic instruction and standardized testing have pushed play out of early childhood
education. Meanwhile, other social and technological trends in children’s lives, such as
increasing screen time and the linking of toys to TV shows, films, and commercial web sites,
also undermine creative play. “Adult life begins in a child’s imagination,” writes poet Dana
Gioia, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, “and we’ve relinquished
that imagination to the marketplace.”
The withering of imagination in childhood is a looming catastrophe with consequences as
profound as global climate change, but much less widely recognized. The very attributes we
most want to nurture in our children—creativity, initiative, collaboration, problem-solving,
courage—are best developed through imaginative play. Just as decisive action is needed
to reverse the process of climate change, we must change course now to restore childinitiated
play and learning to our schools and communities.

19 Digital Inferno Using technology consciously in your life and work
101 ways to survive and thrive in a hyperconnected world

1905570740 / 9781905570744 
How many times do you check something on the internet but find you are drifting aimlessly from one link to another? If you can’t not answer the phone when it rings, and you spend hours a week on social media, and you read your texts instead of kissing your loved one goodnight, and you don’t give your kids proper attention because you just have to prioritize new responses to your tweet... then this book is for you.

The digital world is spreading like an inferno – a swirling, hot storm of change, possibility, addiction, passion, manipulation, creativity and abuse. It demands our attention and encourages us to be always on, with its constant updates and feedback. It is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. And it’s developing faster than our ability to deal with it.

To adherents of digital living and working, any criticism is uncool, a sign of being out of touch. Refreshingly, Digital Inferno is neither simple indictment nor unqualified endorsement. Rather, it’s about holding your own in the digital realm – adapting in a healthy way to the new reality. It offers a conscious path that allows you to derive the benefits you need but also to manage the dangers. Packed with a wealth of practical advice, Digital Inferno describes numerous methods to enable you to step back from constant digital activity and virtual living, and to pay more attention to the real world. You’ll find exercises to overcome tiredness from digital contact and to develop skills to enable you to remain awake and aware. Crucially, you will be master of the digital realm: to abstain from contact when you need to, but also freely to immerse yourself when you choose to.

We don’t need to shun new technology, but we do need to be armed with an understanding of its challenges, problems and limitations. This book provides the tools you will need to meet the future consciously.

<B>Early Readers Series </B><I> Sam Cat readers</I>, DAVIDOW, SHELLEY
20 Early Readers Series Sam Cat readers
1931061505 / 9781931061506 
These warm and wonderful readers will delight both students and teachers as they guide young children along the path of written language one step at a time. Written in order and phonetically, each story focuses on specific word groups, sounds and sentence structures. Each story has a beginning, middle and an ending. Succeeding stories build on these skills and then move on to the next level of skill. The books are conceived in much the same way as the “Dick and Jane” readers of an earlier era, but with a very important difference: these stories have a touching “heart content” to them. The stories are gently humorous while honoring nature, animals and the environment. The illustrations in their warm simplicity are wonderful compliments to the stories! Whether you are rewarding an eager reader with a first experience of reading something someone else wrote, or helping a struggling reader get the hang of all those letters, these readers are sheer joy for everyone.

The six books use simple words that the early reader will easily grasp. They have been carefully chosen by a reading specialist to help students advance from the short vowels to the silent “e” to the vowel combinations. At the back of each book is a list of sight words that should be reviewed with the child before reading the book.

Titles of Books in the Set (Available as a set of 6 only):

Sam Cat and Nat Rat: This pair begins by annoying each other and then end up friends.

Ned and Fred: A pig and a dog don’t think they’ve got much in common, but discover they both love to do the same things

Len Bug and Jen Slug: It’s amazing how much fun you can have and what you can learn from those who are very different from you.

Jake the Snake: Jake doesn’t like moles (and probably a lot of other creatures, too!), but decides to change his mind after getting to know one.

Tim’s Boat: Tim builds a toy boat for himself, but discovers it was really built for three other creatures, too.

Kay and Jay: Kay and Jay are two snails who have lots of fun playing together. One day they are caught in a hail storm and have to help each other find shelter. When the sun comes out, the play begins again.
