<B>Animals are Our Brothers and Sisters </B><I> Why Animal Experiments are Misleading and Wrong, Responsible Medicine Based on a Spiritual View of Creation</I>, HARTINGER, WERNER,  COLLIS, JOHANNA
1 Animals are Our Brothers and Sisters Why Animal Experiments are Misleading and Wrong, Responsible Medicine Based on a Spiritual View of Creation
HARTINGER, WERNER, COLLIS, JOHANNA

'The animals are as much God's children as we are, so they are our brothers and sisters' - St Francis of Assisi. Respected surgeon and medical doctor, Werner Hartinger investigates the claims and counterclaims concerning experimentation on animals. Through meticulous analysis he comes to the conclusion that animal experiments are not only unnecessary, but that the experiments themselves are questionable and lead to meaningless results. The cruelty imposed upon animals is therefore not only gratuitous, he argues, but is unhelpful in the development of good medicine for human beings. Hartinger writes from many years' experience within the medical profession, and with ample scientific data to back his findings. He also tackles the spiritual aspect of this question, inspired by the work of the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner. Painting on a vast canvas, he demonstrates the sibling relationship between humans and animals in the context of cosmic and spiritual evolution. The author gives a commentary on Christian teachings regarding animals, examining the biblical commandments. He also studies the varieties of diseases and their causes, and the hidden aspects of sickness and health.

<B>Art of Acting, The </B><I> Body - Soul - Spirit - Word <br>A Practical and Spiritual Guide</I>, LANGMAN, DAWN
2 Art of Acting, The Body - Soul - Spirit - Word
A Practical and Spiritual Guide

LANGMAN, DAWN
1906999597 / 9781906999599 Paperback 
This book will be invaluable to teachers, acting students and practitioners alike. Langman’s inspired methods, fed by some 45 years of teaching and practice, ensure the highest outcomes for the integration of voice, speech and language as a central ingredient of the actor’s craft. She is the most unique and brilliant master teacher in this area I have ever encountered.’ – Rosalba Clemente, Head of Acting, Drama Centre, Flinders University
‘A rite de passage – working with Langman’s book is an initiation into the practice of “Future Theatre”.’ – Dr Jane Gilmer, Assistant Professor of Drama, VPA, National Institute of Education, Singapore
A remarkable achievement that communicates a lifetime of teaching artistry with grace and depth, and, most significantly, reveals the profound spiritual impulses at the heart of Michael Chekhov’s original impulse. A gift for the generations.’ – Dr Diane Caracciolo, Associate Professor of Educational Theatre, Adelphi University
Over the past decades there has been a resurgence of interest in Chekhov’s acting technique. The original publishers of his fundamental text, To the Actor, removed most of the author’s references to Rudolf Steiner, but recent studies acknowledge Chekhov’s personal interest in anthroposophy as the source of his artistic inspiration. Dawn Langman explores the fundamentals of Chekhov’s psycho-physical technique and the metaphysical principles on which it is based. She examines this technique in relation to the specific challenges and gifts provided by the actor’s constitution of body, soul and spirit, and in the context of the canon of great poetic and dramatic texts – illuminated by Steiner’s insights into humanity’s evolving consciousness.
The Art of Acting lays the foundation for the second and third books in her series, in which Langman explores Rudolf Steiner’s art of speech and its integration with Michael Chekhov’s methodology. Together, these books offer a contemporary, spiritually-enlivened path of development for the actor, in which the combined insights of Steiner and Chekhov lead to new possibilities for the performing arts.
DAWN LANGMAN undertook a mainstream speech and acting training in Australia, followed by seven years of performing and teaching at secondary and tertiary levels. Her quest for an integrated approach that includes the spiritual dimension led her to train with Maisie Jones at the London School of Speech Formation in the method developed by Rudolf and Marie Steiner. She then taught for ten years at Emerson College in Sussex. Following this, Dawn trained in Michael Chekhov’s acting technique with Ted Pugh and Fern Sloan of the Actors Ensemble in New York. Returning to Australia, she founded the School of the Living Word, where for eight years she continued to research the integration of Speech Formation with Chekhov’s technique. She currently teaches this methodology at the Drama Centre, Flinders University, South Australia.

<B>Autism </B><I> A Holistic Approach</I>, DR MARGA HOGENBOOM AND BOB WOODWARD
3 Autism A Holistic Approach
DR MARGA HOGENBOOM AND BOB WOODWARD
1782500006 / 9781782500001 20002013 
Educating and caring for an autistic child is a severely difficult task, too often associated with frustration and disappointment. As a result, the inner development of children with autism is at times considered to be beyond the reach of parents and carers.

This book challenges that assumption, exploring case studies where therapy based on a holistic approach has resulted in marked improvements in the autistic child's behaviour and social integration. With an extended holistic programme, autistic children discover inner self-awareness and self-recognition, leading to first steps in relationships and social skills.

The authors describe in detail their own practical experiences, as well as the findings of other experts in the field. This new third edition covers recent developments in diagnostic methods and approaches to treatment, including new case studies and a new chapter looking at the sensory aspect of autism and Sensory Integration Therapy.

Well-researched and movingly written, this book has an essential, positive message for all those involved in the care and education of autistic children.

<B>Awakening to Community </B><I> </I>, STEINER, RUDOLF,  SPOCK, M.
4 Awakening to Community
STEINER, RUDOLF, SPOCK, M.
0880106670 / 9780880106672 1975 Hardback 
BACK IN PRINT

10 lectures, Stuttgart and Dornach, January 23 - March 4, 1923 (CW 257)
"We are firmly in our understanding of things of the spirit only when we do not rest content with abstract spiritual concepts and a capacity to express them theoretically, but instead grow into a sure belief that higher beings are present with us in a community of spirit when we engage in spiritual study. No external measures can bring about anthroposophical community-building. You have to call it forth from the profoundest depths of human consciousness." - Rudolf Steiner

Rudolf Steiner presented these lectures right after the fire that destroyed the first Goetheanum. Given during the year before the Anthroposophical Society was reestablished, they form an important part of the history of the anthroposophic movement.

Steiner calls for a "searching of conscience." He explains that in anthroposophical communities we can experience our first awakening to the spirit in our encounters with others, and describes how the "reversed cultus" forms the foundation for a new community life.

<B>Beyond the Market </B><I> Economics for the 21st Century</I>, ASSENZA, GAUDENZ
6 Beyond the Market Economics for the 21st Century
ASSENZA, GAUDENZ
0948229152 / 9780948229152 
Market economics is largely contradicted by the developments that accompany it. Particularly in the West, economic life has become intimately bound up with the state, making a mockery of the idea of the free play of market forces. On the other hand, when market forces do prevail, it is often at great, and unacceptable, environmental and social cost.

This book looks beyond the economics of capitalism and communism to explore what can be derived from a recognition of the economic process as such. The wisdom inherent in this process, translated into equitable economic conduct, can provide the resource sustainability and service to humanity as a whole that most people today seem to be seeking.

Dr. Gaudenz B. Assenza completed a dual-degree management program at the European Partnership of Business Schools in Germany and England before specializin on comparative development at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University (1992–1994). In 1993, he worked as a research analyst at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, writing a report on the threats to economic and political stability in the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. After graduating from Harvard, Dr. Assenza worked eight years as a research fellow at the Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI), a Norwegian think tank focusing on energy, environment and development (1994–2002). He also completed research stays at Oxford University and the International Finance Corporation. Since 1999, he has taught at several universities in Central Europe, including universities in Prague, Karvina, and Ostrava. Since April 2004, Dr. Assenza has been a visiting professor in the Department of Political Science at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Germany. In 2005, he completed a post-doctoral thesis and is currently working as an author, coordinator, and coeditor on a book series, investigating the relations between states (politics) and markets (economics) in the area of international environmental policy.

<B>Book of Greek and Roman Folktales, Legends and Myths </B><I> </I>, HANSEN, WILLIAM
7 Book of Greek and Roman Folktales, Legends and Myths
HANSEN, WILLIAM
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>Calm Kids </B><I> Help Children Relax with Mindful Activities</I>, MURRAY, LORRAINE E.
8 Calm Kids Help Children Relax with Mindful Activities
MURRAY, LORRAINE E.
0863158625 / 9780863158629 2012 
At school, we believe education should touch the whole child. This includes the physical, emotional, spiritual, social and cognitive aspects of the child's life. We teach children quietness as a skill to reflect and recharge their inner lives. Lorraine Murray helped us on this journey.'
-- Sheila Laing, Head Teacher

Stress and behavioural disorders are common in children, who are increasingly bombarded by marketing campaigns, faced with school and peer pressure, and able to sense the stress of adults around them.

Mindfulness and meditation can help children recognise and cope with these pressures, releasing bad feelings gently and giving them simple tools to deal with tension and stress throughout their lives. In this practical and inspiring book, Lorraine Murray shows parents, teachers and youth workers how to lead fun and peaceful meditation sessions with children.

Lorraine explains a variety of different approaches, from meditations around daily activities for busy families, to ideas for group 'quietness' sessions in schools. She provides fun, tactile rhymes for toddlers to help them calm down before bedtime, and suggests ways to help teenagers reduce anxiety. She goes on to explain how these methods can help children with ADHD and those on the autistic spectrum, giving a range of case studies.

This book is suitable for complete beginners, or those with some experience of relaxation and meditation techniques. It offers all the advice needed to lead sessions with children, whilst encouraging the reader to adapt and develop their own ways of helping children to feel calmer, happier and more peaceful.

He reveals their fruitful potentials, but also the dangers of their abuse. He discusses social and antisocial instincts, specters of the Old Testament in the nationalism of the present, and the innate capacities of various nations.

KLOCEK, DENNIS
1584200944 / 9781584200949 2011 Paperback 
293 colour illustrations
In this original book, Dennis Klocek considers climate to be an expression of Gaia, and presents climate as the soul of Earth within which human beings live and develop. The cosmic destiny of Earth, he argues, is intimately connected with human destiny. He explores Earth's complex climate system, taking the reader through various climate and weather patterns, using case studies of recent events. He explains terms and phenomena and describes the earthly and extra-earthly forces behind weather patterns such as droughts, floods and hurricanes. This is a highly readable, exciting account of a key element of our world which unites lands and humans in one organism.

<B>Colors of the Soul </B><I> Physiological and Spiritual Qualities of Light and Dark</I>, KLOCEK, DENNIS
12 Colors of the Soul Physiological and Spiritual Qualities of Light and Dark
KLOCEK, DENNIS
1584209607 / 9781584209607 Paperback 
Illustrated: 48 in colour
The subject of color is a very important aspect of life and healing, especially healing what we could call the split in the world created by ordinary dualistic human perception. Rudolf Steiner speaks about this split in various different ways with a kind of “hidden” language, making it sometimes difficult to understand the fundamental idea. In this book, Dennis Klocek presents a kind of meditation on many different aspects of color and how we can work with the alchemical principles of Jachin and Boaz—the two pillars of Solomon’s Temple, representing the red and blue in the blood—to understand the Rosicrucian path in terms of color and healing.

Using many examples from natural- and spiritual-scientific research into color and the rise of various color theories through history, Klocek zeros in on the real essence of colors and how they relate to us as human beings in our physical body and soul. From Newton to Rudolf Steiner, as well as several centuries of artistic development of color and pigments, we learn to perceive in new ways that can both heal and help us work and play with color in new ways. The author also connects what we learn about color to healing with artistic therapies, homeopathy, and flower essences.

Colors of the Soul is illustrated in color, featuring numerous helpful diagrams and examples of art from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. Like the author’s books on physiology, climate, and agriculture, this book brings knowledge and surprising insights to the nature of color, a topic that is integral to our everyday life and development.

DENNIS KLOCEK is a teacher, researcher, artist, gardener, and alchemist. He received an MFA in 1975 from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. He taught for seven years at a community college before joining Rudolf Steiner College in Sacramento, where he has been the director of their Consciousness Studies Program (“Goethean Studies??) since 1992. Dennis is engaged in research, teaching, and writing in many fields, including weather, gardening, meditation, the human organism, and self-transformation. He founded the Coros Institute to teach and promote dialogue experiences based on esoteric wisdom. Dennis Klocek’s books include Climate: Soul of the Earth (2011); The Seer’s Handbook (2004); Sacred Agriculture (2013); Knowledge,Teaching and the Death of the Mysterious (2000); Drawing from the Book of Nature (2000); and Seeking Spirit Vision (2004).

<B>Culture and Horticulture </B><I> The Classic Guide to Biodynamic and Organic Gardening</I>, STORL, WOLF D
14 Culture and Horticulture The Classic Guide to Biodynamic and Organic Gardening
STORL, WOLF D
1583945504 / 9781583945506 
Various studies have shown time and again that small organic farms and home gardens are capable of producing more food per acre with less fossil energy than large-scale commercial agricultural installations dependent on machines and toxic chemical fertilizers and pesticides. This classic book by Wolf D. Storl, a respected elder in the practice of permaculture, details how food is grown holistically and beautifully by traditional communities around the world, and shows how to apply their ancient wisdom to our own gardens.

With interest in natural, sustainable, organic and local food at an all-time high, people are looking beyond their farmers markets and CSA cooperatives to hyperlocal ways of growing healthy, delicious produce in urban gardens and their own backyards. Culture and Horticulture details time-tested methods that are as effective today as they were hundreds of years ago. On the practical front, the book works as a manual for creating and maintaining a bountiful harvest. It explains how to build the soil to maintain fertility; how to produce compost; how to plant, sow, and tend the various fruit and vegetable plants; how to rotate crops and practice companion planting; how to set up a favorable microclimate; how to deal with so-called weeds and pests; how to harvest at the right time; and finally how to store vegetables and herbs. Special emphasis is given to the art and science of composting, the compost being the "heart" of any self-sufficient garden and a model for the cycle of life, death, and rebirth.

At the same time the reader is introduced to the wider aspects of horticulture, to its historical, philosophical, and cosmological contexts and social relevance. Gardening is a cultural activity, shaped by peoples' thoughts, wishes, and needs as well as by their cultural traditions. The author, an anthropologist by profession who has investigated the gardening practices of indigenous people throughout the world and worked for many years on biodynamic farms and in his own food garden, will introduce the reader to Rudolf Steiner's vision of the garden as an organic unit, embedded in the context of terrestrial and cosmic forces. Storl explains the importance of cosmic rhythms (solar, lunar, and planetary), the role of biodynamic herbal preparations as "medicines" for the garden organism, and the so-called "etheric" and "astral" forces. The book presents a vision of the garden as seen through the eyes of "Goethean science," a magical place where alchemical transformations of material substances take place.

<B>D.N. Dunlop </B><I> A Man of Our Time</I>, MEYER, T. H.
15 D.N. Dunlop A Man of Our Time
MEYER, T. H.
190699966X / 9781906999667 2014 
18 plates
D.N. Dunlop (1868-1935) combined remarkable practical and organizational abilities in industry and commerce with gifted spiritual and esoteric capacities. A personal friend of W.B. Yeats and Rudolf Steiner, Dunlop was responsible for founding the World Power Conference (today the World Energy Council), and played leading roles in the Theosophical Society and later the Anthroposophical Society. In his business life he pioneered a cooperative approach towards the emerging global economy.
Meyer’s compelling narrative of Dunlop’s life begins on the Isle of Arran, where the motherless boy is brought up by his grandfather. In a landscape rich with prehistoric standing stones, the young Dunlop has formative spiritual experiences. When his grandfather dies, he struggles for material survival, but devotedly studies occult literature. The scene moves to Dublin, where Dunlop becomes a friend of W.B. Yeats and the poet-seer A.E., and develops an active interest in Madame Blavatsky’s Theosophy. Arriving in London via New York, Dunlop is now a lecturer, writer and the editor of a monthly journal – but alongside his esoteric interests he rises to a foremost position in the British electrical industry, masterminding the first World Power Conference.
Dunlop’s life is to change forever through his meeting with Rudolf Steiner, which ‘...brought instant recognition’. He was immediately convinced that Steiner was ‘...the Knower, the Initiate, the bearer of the Spirit to his age’. Dunlop’s close involvement with anthroposophy, leading to his eventual position as Chair of the British Society, is described in detail: from the momentous conferences in Penmaenmawr and Torquay to his transformative relationships with Eleanor Merry, W.J. Stein, Ita Wegman and Ludwig Polzer-Hoditz. Meyer features important material on the Anthroposophical Society’s tragic split, that allows for a true evaluation of this difficult period in the organization’s history.
This second, enlarged edition features substantial additions of new material and an Afterword by Owen Barfield.
T.H. MEYER was born in Switzerland in 1950. He is the founder and publisher of Perseus Verlag, Basel, and editor of the monthly journal Der Europaer. He is the author of several books including D.N. Dunlop, A Biography; Rudolf Steiner’s Core Mission; The Bodhisattva Question; Clairvoyance and Consciousness and Reality, Truth and Evil, and editor of Light for the New Millennium. He has written numerous articles and gives seminars and lectures around the world.

Dr. Raine's criticism is centered on her belief that it is now the time to reaffirm the language of sacred analogy, and all that is inherent in it, as the proper language of imaginative and creative discourse. Among the essays that comprise this book are perceptive studies of those poets of her contemporaries the author regards as defenders and preservers of the ancient springs of sacred imagination.

17 Destiny of the Michael Community, The Foundation Stone for the Future
SELG, PETER, MILLER, MARGUERITE V.AND DOUGLAS E. (TRANS)
1621480682 / 9781621480686 
In two related studies, Peter Selg tracks the groundbreaking of the first Goetheanum on September 20, 1913, in the context of what is known as the "Michael movement," the primary active impulse brought by Rudolf Steiner in 1924, which explicitly indicates the anthroposophic movement and its official society.

The author shows the fundamental importance of this beginning in Dornach. He illuminates the fateful goal of the “School for Spiritual Science” through Rudolf Steiner’s karma lectures, not only providentially in the sense that it involved individualities, but also with regard to the future development of human civilization.

This monograph builds on Peter Selg's book Rudolf Steiner's Foundation Stone Meditation: And the Destruction of the Twentieth Century and Sergei O. Prokofieff's Rudolf Steiner's Sculptural Group: A Revelation of the Spiritual Purpose of Humanity and the Earth.

18 Developing the Self Through the Inner Work Path in the Light of Anthroposophy
ROMERO, LISA
1621481239 / 9781621481232 
“Through taking hold of all that lives in us, we participate consciously in the transformation of our particular personal self — which is often closed to higher insights — toward a greater possibility of experiencing a living, dynamic spiritual life that awakens our being and serves the progression of the world in which we live.” — Lisa Romero
At the foundation of Western esoteric studies is an understanding of the evolution of consciousness. Anthroposophically based esoteric training focuses on strengthening the human soul. Ancient and modern practices are reenlivened to meet humanity’s evolving needs and to fulfill our present task of cultivating freedom and love to its highest degree.

Individual effort toward developing the higher self is essential for genuine progress on the inner work path. The clear insights and exercises outlined in this book reveal the meaning and necessity of this essential effort in the present age of the consciousness soul, contributing to simultaneously enlivening both our inner and outer work. The path of developing the self and our work in the world are not separated but united through our practices and their results.

Ehrenfried Pfeiffer was a pioneer of biodynamics, first in Switzerland and then in the USA in the pre- and post-war years. This wide-ranging book reflects his concern for the different landscapes of the earth, and the effects of industrialisation and mechanisation on our environment. He studies various landscapes, including plains, mountains and woods as well as urban centres, parks and gardens, and explores what factors - natural and artificial - lead to the maintenance or loss of soil fertility. He calls on all people to take responsibility for our landscapes. His opinions and vision for the future are remarkably relevant today, sixty years on from the original publication.
