FULL COLOUR THROUGHOUT 'I first saw the Goetheanum as a fifteen-year-old through binoculars. I was fascinated and wanted to know more about this incredible building. What am I seeing? Why these forms? What happens in this building?' - Hans Hasler The Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland, was conceived as a visible expression of Rudolf Steiner's spiritual philosophy - a living experience of anthroposophy in the form of art. Whilst Steiner conveyed his ideas and concepts in many books and lectures, the Goetheanum - with its pioneering concrete forms built in the 1920s - is a manifestatio... View more info

NEW! ‘Christianising the Buddha’s impulse at the same time broadens the Christian horizon…’ – Hermann Beckh Many people who are drawn to Buddhism today are seeking for spiritual knowledge as opposed to simple faith or sectarian belief. Hermann Beckh had a profound personal connection to the Buddhist path and the noble truths it contains, yet he was also dedicated to a radical renewal of Christianity. Assimilating the groundbreaking research of Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925), Beckh’s comprehension of Buddhism was neither limited to historical docu... View more info

This volume begins with Thomas Meyer's assessment of Anthroposophy's evolution since Rudolf Steiner’s death and its future prospects. He offers an overview of the eighty-seven years of the development of the anthroposophic movement and the Anthroposophical Society, the worldwide organization headquartered in Dornach, Switzerland, since the death of its founder. The Society went through a very difficult and controversial period in the ten years following Steiner’s death, which culminated at its Annual Meeting in 1935. The result was the expulsion from the Society of two me... View more info

Why was the act of arson that destroyed the first Goetheanum so devastatingly successful in its malicious intent? What was the nature of the poisoning that Rudolf Steiner suffered in 1923? What was the significance of Steiner’s encounter with an unknown Master in 1879, and his later meeting with Friedrich Nietzsche on his sickbed? Rather than presenting an accumulation of data, Meyer takes a symptomatological approach to the evolution of Rudolf Steiner’s thinking, pinpointing specific moments in his biography, whilst making numerous links to contemporary issues. Seemingly unimp... View more info

Dedicated to the one hundredth anniversary of Rudolf Steiner’s first proclamation of Christ’s appearance in the etheric realm of the Earth, this book refers to various aspects of that Event that have so far not been adequately addressed. Sergei O. Prokofieff points to three themes of primary importance, all of which are connected directly with the tasks of the Society which Rudolf Steiner founded: • The preparation of mankind for the Second Coming; • Working together with Christ as the Lord of Karma; • Recognising in anthroposophy the spiritual languag...

‘After Rudolf Steiner’s experience of the Christ mystery, which he describes in his autobiography as "having stood in spirit before the Mystery of Golgotha", the revealing of this mystery to all people of good will - not only in the form of knowledge but also through art, which makes it accessible to direct perception - was one of the most important aims of his life.’ - Sergei O.

Prokofieff draws on the whole extent of Rudolf Steiner's work and combines it with his own original spiritual research to form an intricate picture of the cosmic forces at play between Christmas and Epiphany. We are led on a tour through the circle of the zodiac and spiritual hierarchies, and shown how they form a path from Jesus to Christ. The author further explains that the Starry Script is a key to anthroposophical Christology, and shows how it relates to the conception of the First Goetheanum. Prokofieff guides us imaginatively through the interior of Steiner's architectural mas... View more info

New in paperback! In ancient times humanity possessed an innate knowledge of the spiritual foundations of existence. Such knowledge could be acquired through inwardly accompanying the cycle of the year and its connected great seasonal festivals. But this instinctive knowledge had to be lost in order for human beings to discover individual freedom. In our time, as Sergei O. Prokofieff demonstrates in this comprehensive work, ‘... this knowledge must be found anew through the free, light-filled consciousness of the fully developed human personality’.

'It depends on the human being whether he merely conceives of anthroposophy or whether he experiences it.' - Rudolf Steiner During the Christmas period of 1923-4, Rudolf Steiner refounded the Anthroposophical Society at its headquarters in Dornach, Switzerland. This important event, which has come to be known as the Christmas Conference, can be studied on many levels, and its many mysteries have been central to Sergei O. Prokofieff's anthroposophical research over the years. His beginning point has been an enduring question: What did Rudolf Steiner mean when he called the Christmas Co... View more info

This is the third and final book in this series. “With regard to the question of the esoteric nature of the Anthroposophical Society, the answer most often follows that this esotericism is primarily connected with the Independent School for Spiritual Science. It is less often taken into consideration, however, that at the Christmas Conference Rudolf Steiner ascribed to the Anthroposophical Society itself a... View more info

And the future role that Russia will play in the sixth post-Atlantean epoch... rests firmly upon this unconquerable “Grail mood” in the Russian people.’ – Rudolf Steiner Although Eastern Europe has been part of the Christian world for more than a thousand years, its spiritual identity remains a mystery.

Among Rudolf Steiner’s many initiatives that evoked visible, sustained impulses, there was one that did not develop as planned - his so-called ‘endowment’ of 1911. 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 that lived earlier in Christianity’. Through the forming of such a Society, he sought to enable a true spiritual culture ... View more info

The relationship between The Christian Community and the Anthroposophical Society is complicated and frequently misunderstood. The Christian Community priests work from an understanding of Anthroposophy, and it was undoubtedly Steiner’s theological lecture courses that led to the formation of the movement. Nonetheless, questions remain, which Peter Selg examines closely in this unique book. Steiner’s work emphasizes the importance of finding the spiritual in everyday life. So why did he help found a “Sunday church”? In his lectures, Steiner spoke of a ̶... View more info

This is how my spiritual eye perceived him in Palestine.' - Rudolf Steiner, speaking of his sculpted figure of Christ Rudolf Steiner referred to the wooden 'group' sculpture of the figure of Christ surrounded by adversary spiritual beings as the centre of the first Goetheanum.

This mystery is one of the central questions of anthroposophical Christology and at the same time forms one of the most difficult cognitive challenges presented by anthroposophy.’ – Sergei O.

11 lectures, Dornach, 1 Jul to 8 Aug 1924 GA237 During 1924, before his last address in September, Rudolf Steiner gave over eighty lectures on the subject of karma to members of the Anthroposophical Society. These profoundly esoteric lectures examine the underlying laws inherent in reincarnation and karma, and explore in detail the incarnations of specific historical figures. In Rudolf Steiner's words, the study of karma is "... a matter of penetrating into the most profound mysteries of existence, for within the sphere of karma and the course it takes lie those processes which are t...
