How can such a complex subject be taught well and effectively?

Jan Dostal lays out the four steps for the development of spiritual thinking, beginning with the expansion of Pure Thinking which can be released via Reverence, into Love, and finally Sacrifice. Anyone working towards a deeper understanding of human existence will invariably encounter many paradoxical and contradicting phenomena - in life just as in Anthroposophy and the work of Rudolf Steiner. Jan Dostal makes it clear that we have to view such paradoxes as the very foundations for a realistic way of knowing - the many layered and contradictory facets of life cannot simply be captured...

Written in the years immediately following the Second World War, this brief booklet is a powerful meditation on evil and its eventual transformation. Focusing on the realm of 'sub-nature' or 'the subterranean spheres', Gleich shows how the various layers of the earth's interior are intimately linked with the mystery of evil. The author begins by summarizing the classical picture of the Underworld derived from Greek mythology. He then characterizes the various qualities of the nine layers of the earth as described by Rudolf Steiner. Finally, he outlines the counter-impulses - the forces of 'goo... View more info

ISBN: 0863157920


The week has a remarkable rhythm that does not fit exactly with either the month or the year. Yet most of humanity keeps faith with this sevenfold rhythm. Why did the seven-day week triumph over the many other ways that existed of subdividing the month in ancient times? The answer, as Wolfgang Held shows, is rooted in the human being. Just as activity and passivity alternate during the course of a day, the human soul resonates from day to day in seven differing moods. Deepening our understanding of the characteristic weekly rhythm can give us strength and inspiration for the way we l... View more info

One sun, two parents, three meals a day, four seasons, five fingers ...every child soon discovers that lots of things in life have an inherent number attached to them. Just as five individual fingers become something much more important and powerful when combined together in a hand, these numbers are often much more than a simple addition of their parts: they are intrinsically connected to the object, expressing a particular quality. In this readable little book, Wolfgang Held explores the fascinating qualities of numbers one to thirty-one. The Pythagorean School in ancient Greece had a saying... View more info

halftones Meyer examines how Rudolf Steiner's students responded to his understanding of karma, placing this "most intrinsic mission" in the context of current divisions in the anthroposophic movement. He highlights especially the place of spiritual science in culture and history and shows how Steiner further developed the great scientific ideas of evolution propounded by Darwin by raising them to the plane of individual soul and spiritual development. As Steiner stated in 1903, "Scientific researchers explain the skull forms of higher animals as a transformation of a lower t... View more info

halftones In ancient times, people's experience of the divine was imbued with the feminine archetype. The world of spirit was seen to be populated by goddesses, and women were honoured as priestesses and guardians of sacred rites. The later Greek and Roman civilizations, in contrast, were characterized by the principle of patriarchy, which still dominates our culture - despite the political and social emancipation of women in the West. This unique study of the feminine archetype throws new light on the spiritual significance and meaning of the feminine principle today, as wel... View more info

Recognizing that chemical manipulation of agriculture was neither desirable nor sustainable, Steiner helped launch an agricultural movement whose outlook is truly pioneering in spirit. As Selg describes, Steiner saw that "what was needed instead was new, conscious insight into life forces and laws, into the nature of organisms, into the diverse realms of nature, and the determining factors of both Earth and cosmos that influence them." The vivid picture painted here reveals the importance that Steiner placed on launching this work, as well as the extent to which his initiative offered ... View more info

"Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven." Steiner once called the Lord's Prayer the "greatest initiation prayer" and spoke about it many times, also referring to it as the central prayer of Christian experience. For most of his life as an esoteric teacher, Rudolf Steiner prayed the Lord's Prayer standing upright. He used to say it so loudly in his Berlin apartment that it could be heard outside his door and in the neighboring room. This book gathers, for the first time, all of Steiner's comments, accounts, and perspectives on the Lord's Prayer, offering a fuller... View more info

The review exercises bring the experiences of our daily lives to full awareness. By directing our attentive gaze to what has happened - whether in a single day or in whole phases of life - we kindle light in our will. Undertaking such a review backwards, in reverse sequence, or from an 'external perspective', requires a huge inner effort as we establish distance between ourselves and our daily experiences. In this essential handbook the editor has drawn together virtually all Rudolf Steiner's statements on the review exercises, supporting them with commentary and notes. Described from... View more info
