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 (1884-19...

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 th... View more info

It makes no sense to stop where Goethe stood. Yet we cannot progress unless we absorb Goethe deeply and allow ourselves to be wholly inspired by the impulses he brought into the world. This cannot be achieved as quickly as people today would like this to happen. There is nothing for it; anyone who was careless enough to live at the end of the nineteenth century must bear it.” —Rudolf Steiner, July 18, 1891 The first chapter of this volume lo...

"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.

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 amazi...
