The power of Shakespeare lies in his evidently conscious knowledge, skill and understanding of how to work with the alchemical potential in the human soul in the crafting of his plays.

This book is the fruit of her ‘conversation’ with Brien Masters – a collaboration that began more than twenty years ago, when she was learning to be a Waldorf ... View more info

illustrations On being introduced to the concept of evolving human consciousness, Brien Masters discovered that one could gain insight into the phenomenon by examining the musical styles of different composers. Following years of musical study and practice, he detected in the richness of Mozart's music a reflection of humanity's emerging consciousness of selfhood and individuality. Two hundred and fifty years after his birth, Mozart continues to be acknowledged universally as a musical genius. But recognition of his work goes beyond the pleasure to be derived from listening to his music.... View more info

Is the philosophy by which we choose to educate our children responsible, at least partially, for the attitudes and general tone of our societies? A recent Unicef report on wealthy countries ranked the United States and the United Kingdom at the bottom of a table that measured quality of life for young people across a wide range of headings, including poverty, health, drugs, friendships and happiness. Experts observed that the nations that performed best in the survey have created 'child-friendly' societies in which, for example, young people are not pressured to achieve academically until the...

Publisher: Wynstones Press:

Seller ID: 15068


In this small selection of springtime verses, Brien Masters - known principally for his authorship in other genres, literary, educational and musical - presents glimpses of lost worlds, phenomenological insights into the world surrounding us right now, and feelers towards worlds not yet fully discovered.

It came as a ringing endorsement of Brien Masters analysis of the situation when the Times Educational Suppliment (June 2005), reviewing his Adventures in Steiner Education, stated that his explanation of the rationale behind the Waldorf approach to literacy taught unhurriedly, with lots of stories and drawing, then writing leading to reading at about age seven ought to be placed on the desks of all those who are so concerned to hasten small children in to the mechanics of it all. In these collected essays, the theme of literacy takes its place alongside other Waldorf non-negotiables, among th... View more info

There are those occasions in life when Nature presents us with an overwhelming experience of her fertility and beauty in the flowering of plants - clouds of lavender-blue jacaranda lining an avenue in Pretoria, a profusion of magenta Judas' tree blossom on an Athenian hillside, drifts of wild almond blossom gracing a deep barranca in Gran Canaria, or plumes of lilac wisteria cascading down the limestone facade of a Cotswold mansion. Whenever we re-enter such a shrine we feel again the uplift, the spiritual strength and renewal of that moment when the impact of the original experience first cam... View more info

From the moment that Marie von Sivers met Rudolf Steiner in 1902, their relationship became key to the development of anthroposophy. Marie Steiner’s immense contribution is well known in the fields of eurythmy, speech, the arts, and in her management and publication of Steiner’s literary estate - but she also assisted in almost every aspect of Rudolf Steiner’s work. So why has she been so neglected by the anthroposophical movement? Driven by this central question, the authors of this penetrating study came to the conclusion that the karma and mission of Marie Steiner-von ... View more info
