1 copy from Honeyclock
Emil Bock lectured widely on Rudolf Steiner after the Second World War, and during the course of his research he uncovered many previously unknown aspects of Steiner's life. This book, the second of two volumes, explores some of the themes and ideas in Steiner's work, as well as exploring the nature of destiny. The early years of Jesus, the Christmas festival and the break from the Theosophical Society to the Anthroposophical Society are just some of the many themes and events covered in this comprehensive study. Bock also examines the circle of people around Steiner at this time and, using Steiner's ideas on karma and reincarnation, draws interesting parallels with Rome, Byzantium, Ephesus and the Grail Castle.

2 Memories of Rudolf Steiner and Marie Steiner-von Sivers
SAMWEBER, ANNA
1855845180 / 9781855845183 2015 
‘I rang the bell, the door opened, and there stood Rudolf Steiner in person. I was so taken aback that I dropped the basket which burst open and all my clothes and underclothes, together with my other belongings, were lying at the feet of the Doctor. A ball of wool got away and rolled between Dr Steiner’s feet into the long corridor. Somewhat surprised, but amused, he said: “I have never been greeted in this way.”’
Anna Samweber (1884-1969), an active co-worker in Berlin with Rudolf Steiner and Marie Steiner-von Sivers, presents a lively, homely, and often moving collection of anecdotes and recollections. Recorded by Jacob Streit during an intensive two-day session, this short work offers a warm, illuminating and intimate picture of Rudolf Steiner, the man and his work, during a critical phase in the development of anthroposophy.

4 Reminiscences of Rudolf Steiner

0932776132 / 9780932776136 
This book includes excerpts from the works of three Russian authors. Both because it is the gift of the Russian people to be able to describe another's soul-configuration in a particularly pictorial and concrete manner, and because each of these writers knew Rudolf Steiner and saw him frequently, the impressions are especially living and vivid. Beautifully illustrated by photographs as well as drawings and paintings by Turgenieff and Voloschin, this collection offers striking and surprising impressions of Rudolf Steiner.

<B>Rudolf Steiner </B><I> An Introduction to His Life and Work</I>, LACHMAN, GARY
5 Rudolf Steiner An Introduction to His Life and Work
LACHMAN, GARY
0863156185 / 9780863156182 2007 Paperback 
Rudolf Steiner - educator, architect, artist, philosopher and agriculturalist - ranks amongst the most creative and prolific figures of the early twentieth century. Yet he remains a mystery to most people. This is the first truly popular biography of the man behind the ideas, written by a sympathetic but critical outsider. Steiner is widely known for what he left behind: a network of Waldorf schools, biodynamic farming, Camphill schools and villages and pioneering work in holistic health and environmental research. Although his achievements are felt all over the world, few people understand this unusual figure. Steiner's own writings fill several bookcases, but are often dense and 'insider' in tone.Gary Lachman tells Steiner's story lucidly and with great insight. He presents Steiner's key ideas in a readable, accessible way, tracing his beginning as a young intellectual in the ferment of fin de siecle culture to the founding of his own metaphysical teaching, called anthroposophy. This book is a full-bodied portrait of one of the most original philosophical and spiritual luminaries of the last two centuries.

33 b&w and 13 colour photographs
A new edition of this concise introduction to Steiner's life and work. The philosopher Rudolf Steiner was one of the most original thinkers of the twentieth century. His writings cover a wide range of subjects and he made valuable and influential contributions in many fields, including education, science, medicine and social reform. The basis of his research was the science of the spirit which he called anthroposophy. He maintained that material science could never comprehend the whole of nature, as it excluded the realm of the spirit. Bridging the physical and spiritual worlds, anthroposophy would show the way towards a true understanding of humanity and its relation to the universe. This is a concise illustrated introduction to Steiner's life and work, describing how many of his ideas have been put into practice and are still giving inspiration and guidance to many people all over the world.

<B>Rudolf Steiner as a Spiritual Teacher </B><I> From Recollections of Those Who Knew Him</I>, SELG, PETER
8 Rudolf Steiner as a Spiritual Teacher From Recollections of Those Who Knew Him
SELG, PETER
0880107065 / 9780880107068 
For Peter Selg, if Anthroposophy to be a living reality, we must learn to know and love Rudolf Steiner as he appeared to those who knew and loved him: namely, as a spiritual teacher. To help us do so, he gathered recollections of those of who knew Steiner personally—“historical witnesses to the ‘living phenomenon’ of the ‘figure of the teacher.” It is his hope that these firsthand accounts will help readers see and experience the amazing, ever-mysterious person that Rudolf Steiner was—a dynamic, energetic “dual citizen” of both the spiritual and the physical worlds. He moved constantly between these two realities, while his whole life was dedicated in service to the spiritual evolution of humanity. Nonetheless, he was also deeply sociable and a true friend, convivial, cheerful, humorous, and always able to enjoy—and tell—a good joke. He was also austere and painfully serious. In other words, Rudolf Steiner was a paradox.

Rudolf Steiner was “imposing,” but it would be difficult to say why. He was slim; there was no heaviness in him. Indeed, what seemed to strike most people first was his lightness. He moved rhythmically, youthfully, artistically, with quick, light steps, his posture erect but fluid, his head seeming to float between Heaven and Earth. Yet he was fully grounded. When he stood, it was as if nothing could move him. When he spoke, his gestures and tone expressed perfectly what he had to say. He was completely one with what he said, so that he changed as the content changed. Those who listened to his lectures found themselves transported to the source of what they were hearing. Sometimes “ten Steiners” would pass before them. To hear a lecture, was a meditation experience.

Quite another figure appeared in conversations, which filled his every public moment. One experienced luminous kindness, selfless interest, and intense listening attention. It was as tough one were singled out in the world and having a sense of being allowed complete inner freedom. All who came to him for advice felt Steiner’s love. They felt that he saw the best in them and spoke from that point of view, whether it was a matter of life’s journey or esoteric training. By his example, then, he sought to exemplify the kind of spiritual community toward which he hoped anthroposophists would strive.

<B>Rudolf Steiner Enters My Life </B><I> </I>, RITTELMEYER, FRIEDRICH,  OSMOND, D.S.
9 Rudolf Steiner Enters My Life
RITTELMEYER, FRIEDRICH, OSMOND, D.S.
0863159583 / 9780863159589 2013 Paperback 
"Am I going too far if I declare that not a single one of the opponents took a tenth of the pains I took with anthroposophy before I joined the movement?" -- Friedrich Rittelmeyer Born in southern Germany in 1872, Friedrich Rittelmeyer was a leading figure in the Lutheran church at the beginning of the twentieth century. His was an influential pulpit, and he was a pioneer of a new meditative approach, seeking to re-establish the relevance of the Gospels. His life took an unexpected turn when, in 1911, he encountered Rudolf Steiner for the first time. He spent the next ten years critically appraising and investigating Steiner's ideas. This book is a fascinating and insightful autobiographical account of those years, as well a rigorous scrutiny of anthroposophy. In 1922, he made the decision to leave the Lutheran church and lead a new movement for religious renewal, The Christian Community, in association with Steiner. His final conviction was that Steiner's ideas were something truly special. First published in English in 1929, this book's honest struggle with key anthroposophical concepts has been influential for generations of people.

<B>Rudolf Steiner's Endowment </B><I> Centenary Reflections on His Attempt for a Theosophical Art and Way of Life, 15 December 1911</I>, SEASE, VIRGINIA,  MILLER, MARGUERITE,  MILLER, DOUG
10 Rudolf Steiner's Endowment Centenary Reflections on His Attempt for a Theosophical Art and Way of Life, 15 December 1911
SEASE, VIRGINIA, MILLER, MARGUERITE, MILLER, DOUG
1906999406 / 9781906999407 2012 Paperback 
Among Rudolf Steiner’s many initiatives that evoked visible, sustained impulses, there was one that did not develop as planned - his so-called ‘endowment’ of 1911. This was his attempt to create a ‘Society for a Theosophical Art and Way of Life’, that would work ‘under the protectorate of Christian Rosenkreutz’. Rudolf Steiner envisaged a grouping of individuals who were ‘...deeply moved by a spiritual power like the one that lived earlier in Christianity’. Through the forming of such a Society, he sought to enable a true spiritual culture to arise on earth - a culture that would ‘engender artists in every domain of life’.
Virginia Sease’s reflections - a century after Rudolf Steiner’s attempt - place a special emphasis on three considerations. Firstly, that the Endowment impulse allows us to experience the art of ‘interpreting’ in the Rosicrucian way. Secondly, that the best initiative, even one undertaken by a great individuality, is doomed to failure if the participants are unable to overcome their personal ambitions. And finally, that we may live with the fact that, despite the passing of time, the seeds dormant in Rudolf Steiner’s attempt still have the possibility to come to fruition in the future.
VIRGINIA SEASE was born in the United States. Her study of German literature led to a PhD from the University of Southern California in 1969. She has been a member of the Executive Council of the General Anthroposophical Society since 1984, and served from 1991 to 2001 as leader of the Section for the Arts of Eurythmy, Speech, Drama and Music of the School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. Her current responsibilities include liaising between the Executive Council and English-speaking anthroposophists around the world, and directing the English Anthroposophical Studies Programme at the Goetheanum.

11 Rudolf Steiner, Life and Work - Volume 1 Volume 1 (1861–1890): Childhood, Youth, and Study Years
SELG, PETER
1621480828 / 9781621480822 Paperback 
"This biography does not aim for completeness, but focuses on Rudolf Steiner’s being, intentions, and journey—aspects that must not be obliterated by the many events, foundations, and people involved with Anthroposophy.... It wants to convey (to quote Emil Leinhas) 'the immense greatness and unique significance of this individuality who radiates out over the centuries.'" —Peter Selg (from the introduction)

To acknowledge and understand Rudolf Steiner’s unique achievement and life’s work, one must be able to accept that the founder and spiritual researcher of Anthroposophy was "a citizen of two worlds": the spiritual and the physical. Anthroposophy teaches that this duality, rather than being a quality reserved for special individualities, is inherent to human nature. According to Rudolf Steiner, it is a central aspect of being human, even in times when the suprasensory aspect of humanity is eclipsed (for ordinary day consciousness) and almost eliminated by certain civilizations.

The interest in Rudolf Steiner’s person and essence, in his attitude toward life and work, will continue to grow in the decades and centuries that lie ahead, both within and outside the anthroposophical movement. It will take hold of entirely different groups of people, including those who come with spiritual questions or discover them in times of need. Rudolf Steiner’s work grew to be “one unique effort of bringing courage to human beings” (Michael Bauer).

This is the first of seven comprehensive volumes on Rudolf Steiner’s “being, intentions, and journey.” It presents Rudolf Steiner from childhood and youth through his doctorate degree and up to the time of his work for the Goethe Archives as editor of Goethe’s scientific writings. By considering his formative years in depth, we come to understand better the roots and development of Rudolf Steiner’s later spiritual research and teachings.

This volume is a translation from German of the first three chapters of Rudolf Steiner. 1861 - 1925: Lebens- und Werkgeschichte. Band 1: 1861 - 1914 (Ita Wegman Institut, 2012).

<B>Rudolf Steiner, Life and Work Vol.3 1900 - 1914 (PB) </B><I> Spiritual Science and Spiritual Community (Vol. 3)</I>, SELG, PETER
12 Rudolf Steiner, Life and Work Vol.3 1900 - 1914 (PB) Spiritual Science and Spiritual Community (Vol. 3)
SELG, PETER
1621480887 / 9781621480884 1st Edition Paperback 
"Without new impulses humanity will be overwhelmed and paralyzed - in ways we cannot even imagine today - by the domination of mere outer technology. Humanity will perish because all religious, scientific, philosophical, artistic, and - in a higher sense - ethical interests would be torn from the human soul. Without new spiritual impulses we will become living machines." - Rudolf Steiner (CW 158)

This third volume of Peter Selg’s comprehensive presentation of Rudolf Steiner’s life and work begins with Steiner’s invitation to lecture in the Theosophical Society during the summer of 1900. From the outset of his theosophical involvement, Steiner was resolved to serve and develop the Western path to the spirit, traversed in full, conscious clarity of thought. He was therefore critical of the tendency to avoid the modern standards of a sound knowledge process in matters of spirituality and esotericism, and instead emphasized the importance of idealist philosophy as groundwork for understanding spiritual cognition. ("Whoever speaks of the coldness of the world of ideas can only think ideas, not experience them. Those who live the true life in the world of ideas feel in themselves the being of the world working in warmth that cannot be compared to anything else." - Rudolf Steiner, Goethe's World View)

Although his approach did not always harmonize with theosophical pursuits, Rudolf Steiner recognized the sincere striving at the basis of this movement and agreed to take on increasingly greater responsibility for the German Section. Marie von Sivers, who would later become his wife, was his most supportive colleague during this time. At a decisive juncture, Steiner broke from the Theosophical Society to found the Anthroposophical Society, through which he would continue the development of modern spiritual science more freely in accord with his original intentions.

This volume covers the period during which Steiner wrote some of his foundational works: Christianity as Mystical Fact, Theosophy, Knowledge of the Higher Worlds, and An Outline of Esoteric Science. Peter Selg also describes the building of the first Goetheanum in Dornach as an artistic embodiment of esoteric wisdom, giving rise to an international working community, as well as the performance of the mystery dramas and Rudolf Steiner’s profound Christological lectures known as the Fifth Gospel.

STEINER, RUDOLF, HOWARD, ALAN, ST GOAR, MARIA
0854400354 / 9780854400355 1996 Paperback 
These are perhaps Steiner's most exciting lectures on the fundamentals of social renewal. Among the themes he considers are spiritual science as a knowledge of action; the twelve senses of the human being in their relation to Imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition; the science of initiation and the impulse for freedom; and viewpoints on the forming of healthy social judgments. This volume provides a wealth of inspiration showing that healing will come to social life when the inner mobility of soul acquired through spiritual science is allowed to mold new social forms.
