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. . . . â€˜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.
