<B>Archetypal Plant, The </B><I> Rudolf Steiner’s Watercolour Painting</I>, LORD, ANGELA
2 Archetypal Plant, The Rudolf Steiner’s Watercolour Painting
LORD, ANGELA
1906999856 / 9781906999858 2015 
Rudolf Steiner painted his Archetypal Plant watercolour in 1924, at a time when contemporary scientific methodologies were emerging and nature was being examined under the microscope. In contrast to the dissecting tendencies of natural science, however, Steiner’s painting depicts the living, dynamic potential which stands behind the plant – lifting us out of the specific genus and providing an image of the growing and formative forces inherent within each individual plant.
Researching Rudolf Steiner’s painting of the Archetypal Plant can help reconnect our outer sense-perceptions with the inner realm of imaginative cognition, releasing us from the spell of matter. To support and enliven such research work and processes, Angela Lord surveys her subject-matter from various aspects, including the historical, evolutionary relationships we share with plants; the representation of plants in art and architecture; plant myths and legends; poetry inspired by flower imagery; cosmic aspects of nature, including earth’s relationships to the sun, moon, planets and stars; formative, creative forces of colours and their relationships to plant forms; and finally, working artistically and painting the Archetypal Plant motif itself.

In developing a broad overview, the author forms a deeper, more complete picture of the plant world, paying homage to its diverse characteristics, and stimulating new perceptions and perspectives. This book is richly illustrated with full-colour images.

ANGELA LORD is a painter, interior colour designer, muralist and art educator. Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, she studied with Gerard Wagner at the Goetheanum Painting School in Dornach, Switzerland. Together with Robert Lord, she is active in Colour Transformation Ltd., a company specializing in Lazure painting, interior design and murals. She recently founded the Columbine Art Academy in Sussex and London, which offers a diploma recognized by the Arts Section at the Goetheanum. She teaches around the world, most recently in China.

<B>Art and Human Consciousness </B><I> </I>, RICHTER, GOTTFRIED AND OBERHUBER, KONRAD
3 Art and Human Consciousness
RICHTER, GOTTFRIED AND OBERHUBER, KONRAD
0880104783 / 9780880104784 Paperback 
This survey of western art from ancient Egypt to Picasso looks at visual art in a completely new and imaginative way. Gottfried Richter’s lively and penetrating obser­vations will inspire and enthuse the novice, while breathing new life into the thinking of art critics and historians.

Richter concerns himself broadly with architecture, sculpture, and painting—as well as mythology and legend—in pre­senting the creations of artist and architect as an expression of the evolution of human consciousness. In vivid images he offers the reader interpretive keys to under­stand this process in all areas of art history.

With many examples the author illustrates how human life has undergone a qualitative transfor­mation as humanity has gradually freed itself from a life determined by spiritual guidance in order to take hold of the sensory world and experience free individuality.

<B>Art of Acting, The </B><I> Body - Soul - Spirit - Word <br>A Practical and Spiritual Guide</I>, LANGMAN, DAWN
4 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>Art of Speech, The </B><I> A Practical and Spiritual Guide</I>, LANGMAN, DAWN
5 Art of Speech, The A Practical and Spiritual Guide
LANGMAN, DAWN
1906999651 / 9781906999650 
‘The Art of Speech offers to the English language a systematic, in-depth and thoroughly readable exploration of Rudolf Steiner’s original exercises. Langman’s contribution, developed over decades of research, performance and teaching, is filled with relevance for today’s speech artists. The powerful spiritual inspirations that stand behind the spoken word are infused throughout, giving this book its wings.’ – Dr Diane Caracciolo, Associate Professor of Educational Theatre, Adelphi University
‘Langman’s seminal work leads the artist through a portal to an experience of the heart and the genius of speech as “the activity of divine creative beings”.’ – Dr Jane Gilmer, Assistant Professor of Drama, VPA, National Institute of Education, Singapore
‘A prodigious work, intriguing, enlightening and passionate – and the co-ordination with Chekhov invaluable… Those fortunate enough to see Dawn’s solo performances of King Lear and Kaspar Hauser know that this book is the fruit of living and loving experience.’ – Sophia Walsh, pioneer teacher and artist of Speech Formation in the English language, Dornach, Switzerland
The Art of Speech presents a dynamic path of practice leading to an experience of the Word as a living, healing and creative power. Helping to deliver Western intellectual speech from what Artaud described as ‘shrivelled throats’ and ‘monstrous talking abstractions’, Langman brings to life the spiritual realities out of which a true Art of Speech arises. Inspired by Rudolf Steiner and pioneered initially in the German language by Marie Steiner, this artform is illuminated here through the genius of the English language.
Langman builds a bridge between mainstream research into the intrinsic nature of Speech, and the levels of spiritual cognition that led to Rudolf Steiner’s insights. Speech and language can no longer be reduced to an arbitrary collection of abstract symbols, she asserts. This book will inspire those working with these disciplines as practitioners (both artistic and therapeutic) as well as those who wish to understand their significance in human evolution, both past and future.
Following her first book The Art of Acting, this volume completes a foundation of understanding for an exploration – in the conclusion of Langman’s trilogy – of an integrated art of speech and acting. Grounded in the spiritual reality of the human being, Langman presents a systematic methodology with which to explore Rudolf Steiner’s Speech and Drama Course.

<B>Choroi Quinta Pentatonic Recorder </B><I> </I>
10 Choroi Quinta Pentatonic Recorder


The Quinta Pentatonic Flute is a newly developed pentatonic flute made of maple wood without a tone block. It has a slightly stronger tone than those with a tone block and a very light articulation.
The interval and pentatonic flutes were specially developed for use by children, particularly in groups.
The newly developed Quinta-Flute is light blowing, with very easy articulation and a clear transparent tone. With the newly designed labium and windway, no separate toneblock is needed.
All the Choroi flutes are characterized by a warm, light, flexible tone. Compared with traditional instruments, the Choroi flutes possess a tone that sounds more like a voice than an instrument.
This unique tone quality leads to a corresponding style of play. A free outbreathing, rather than an active blowing, forms the foundation for the tone. The mouth and lip positions also contribute to the tone formation. The fingers gently touch the specially formed finger holes, which allow half-steps to be achieved naturally by half-covering the holes.
All flutes are treated exclusively with linseed oil.

15 Cosmic Music Musical Keys to the Interpretation of Reality
GODWIN, JOSCELYN
089281070X / 9780892810703 1989 Paperback 
Illustrations
The idea that the universe is created out of sound or music (and therefore is music) is a very ancient one. In this book, Joscelyn Godwin brings together three contemporary German thinkers who exemplify this tradition in its modern variants: Marius Schneider, Rudolf Haase, and Hans Erhard Lauer. The selections draw on ancient Indian sources and mythology; Kepler's Platonic vision of a musical, geometric universe; and the evolution of the tone systems of music. While every music lover senses the power and truth that reside in music, very few actually approach music as a path to cosmic knowledge. Godwin takes literally Beethoven's assertion that "Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom or philosophy." Godwin writes, ." . .to penetrate the mysteries of music is to prepare for initiation into those fathomless mysteries of man and cosmos."

16 Creative Choir, The A Holistic Approach to Working with Singers
GRAHAM, JAMES NEILSON
1906999759 / 9781906999759 
Choral singing is enjoying a renaissance, and this timely book contributes to our understanding of what choir work can and should be about. Starting with the idea that education supports the rehearsal process, James Neilson Graham delves into the theory and practice of working with singers, drawing on the insights of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze in relation to movement and the work of Valborg Werbeck-Svärdström in relation to the voice. Singing is an aspect of our common humanity, and the health of the human socio-musical organism is reflected in choral sound. How can the individual flourish in the context of so many? How can a conductor facilitate this process?

In lively fashion (with more than seventy music examples, diagrams, and illustrations), Neilson Graham challenges orthodoxies and opens up new developmental pathways for choir leaders and choral singers.

20 Discovering the Zodiac in the Raphael Madonna Series
GRAY, BRIAN
0946206759 / 9780946206759 Paperback 
"In the different arts ... we are presented with different languages that give expression to certain truths living in the human soul. They are often the most secret truths, the most secret knowledge, which cannot readily be reduced to rigid concepts nor clothed in abstract formula, but seek artistic expression." Rudolf Steiner, 29th April 1909.

Raphael’s paintings of the Madonna express secret truths. Rudolf Steiner described the healing effects of Raphael’s Madonnas in August 1908, and between 1908 and 1911 he directed Dr. Felix Peipers to arrange fifteen images as a therapeutic meditation for patients suffering from emotional disturbances. Sometimes called the Raphael Madonna Series, these fifteen pictures invite our active contemplation. Each image can awaken inner pictures that lift us into communion with realms beyond the physical world, stirring our feelings of wonder and reverence and opening our souls to divine mysteries.

The 15 images of the Madonna Series as illustrated in this book, are also available as a set of either postcards or prints, reproduced in colour.
