Food quality is an important issue for our modern world. There is an increasing awareness that empty calories and mass-produced food don't offer the quality nutrition that people need, and that smaller amounts of better-quality food could help combat the epidemic of obesity sweeping the western world. Karl König recognised the significance of human nutrition nearly one hundred years ago. In the 1920s he started lecturing on the subject as part of a programme of social help in deprived city areas, and in 1936 gave a course for physicians and educators. This book contains two essa...

"In healing processes or in the general growth of the body, the formation of bone or the formation of a tissue from a fluid is a sclerotic process. We can call it the formation of tissue from fluid growth, but technically it is sclerotic. Sclerosis, which is considered to be a disease process, is therefore a natural process in the body. Inflammation and infection that can kill you and sclerosis are both the body’s natural healing processes. Steiner mentions this and asks, So, where does the illness come in? This is a really a very good question. The answer he gives is this: Illness i... View more info

How much practical time do we usually devote to the general art of being human? This practical guide to the self-healing of consciousness — it is both a spiritual psychology and a contemporary manual of the inner life — begins by laying out very clearly the unhealthy, unfree nature of today's consciousness. Methodical self-observation leads to discovering the key to the liberating consciousness from its habitual blind spots and automatisms: the realization of the universal primacy of cognition and the universal availability of its ground, the free attention.

The question of how our muscles become ‘conscious’ of our desire to move is an obvious one. In my view, we should take as the basis of our observations the idea that what we call our nervous system is only the physical expression of what lives everywhere in our body as activity of perception. There is something that guides us in a certain direction, but that means that there has to be some unknown connection between what guides us and our ‘muscle being’, as there is in the case of conscious actions. Just as our muscle being ‘listens’ to the movements we wan... View more info
