Price: $38.00

Publisher: United Kingdom, Floris Books: 2013

Seller ID: 12658

ISBN: 0863159591


b/w illustrations The four classical elements of earth, water, air and fire are present in Genesis and continue to be significant throughout Christianity. Different streams of thought, such as the School of Chartres, and Celtic Christianity, have emphasised them in different ways. In this unique book, Bastiaan Baan, an experienced spiritual thinker, brings these elements together with ideas from Rudolf Steiner's anthroposophy. He considers, in particular, how elemental beings -- nature spirits -- relate to the four elements, and explores the role of elemental beings in our world. This is... View more info

Publisher: Lindisfarne Books:

Seller ID: 15391

ISBN: 1584209844


This epic work by Dankmar Bosse presents, for the first time, a comprehensive picture of the evolution of the earth and its natural kingdoms, based primarily on geology and paleontology, and with reference to the results of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual-scientific research. “The Evolution of the Cosmos and Humanity,” chapter 4 of Rudolf Steiner’s fundamental work in 1910, An Outline of Esoteric Science, is the single most extensive expression of his suprasensory research into evolution as a whole. Nonetheless, it is an “outline,” leaving much to be exp... View more info

ISBN: 1855842114


Why is evil becoming ever more prominent in the world, in an ever greater variety of forms? What is its source? What can we do to keep the world a reasonably good place to live in? Why is it that 'good' shows itself less clearly now than in the past? We live in a fascinating era, providing us with 'the best of times' and the 'worst of times'. On the one hand we see how people are becoming more aware and spiritual, but on the other hand we encounter increasing violence and lack of conscience. The great traditions of both East and West - such as the ancient Egyptian, the Mayan, Hindu, an... View more info

NEW!! Published Feb 2018 In 1902 Steiner wrote Christianity as Mystical Fact and the Mysteries of Antiquity, showing the evolutionary development from the ancient mysteries, through the great Greek philosophers, to the events portrayed in the gospels.

"First, one might ask: Why not just read the first three books? After all, Rudolf Steiner wrote them in such a way that the very act of reading them can awaken new faculties. Who could ever duplicate that? It might even seem presumptuous to select passages from books that were constructed by an initiate. To those who have these and other objections, I have the following response: My hope is that the pages in this book serve as an invitation, so that those who work with this material will then be motivated to go to the original texts and work with them more intensively." —Torin Fi...

halftones As a boy travelling to school by tram, Norbert Glas often passed the time by studying his fellow passengers' faces. He would muse on what the shapes and contours of their noses, eyes and mouths signified. Later in life, having become a medical doctor and a student of Rudolf Steiner's spiritual-scientific world view, Glas gained numerous insights into the mysteries of human physiognomy. In this, the first translation into English of his seminal work, Glas begins by defining the three parts of the human face and explaining the importance of their relative proportions. A person wi...

FULL COLOUR THROUGHOUT In conceiving his architectural masterpiece - the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland - Rudolf Steiner designed a large wooden model, featuring three main figures, to be placed in a central position inside the building. Known as 'the Representative of Humanity', this sculpture shows a central, free-standing Christ holding a balance between the beings of Lucifer and Ahriman, who represent polar tendencies of expansion and contraction. On New Year's Eve 1922 the Goetheanum was destroyed by fire, but the model - still in a process of creation and therefore housed in an... View more info

Delivered more than 60 years ago, the lectures in this booklet demonstrate Alfred Heidenreich’s gift for kindling understanding of the essence of Christianity and the nature and being of Christ. Guided by spiritual science or anthroposophy, as founded by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), Heidenreich presents an imaginative and insightful reading of the meaning of Christ’s ‘resurrection body’, addressing the significance of ‘original sin’ and ‘the Fall’, and how they relate to this metaphysical body. In his second lecture, Heidenreich addresses R... 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

Illustrated: 48 in colour The subject of color is a very important aspect of life and healing, especially healing what we could call the split in the world created by ordinary dualistic human perception. Rudolf Steiner speaks about this split in various different ways with a kind of “hidden” language, making it sometimes difficult to understand the fundamental idea. In this book, Dennis Klocek presents a kind of meditation on many different aspects of color and how we can work with the alchemical principles of Jachin and Boaz - the two pillars of Solomon’s Temple, repre...

“A single human being has no reality; the existence of ‘man’ begins with the word that floats between I and you. The Logos connects human beings through the Word; all else is temptation or a temporary connection.” — Georg Kühlewind “To become aware of the Logos is to become aware of the Logos in oneself.... The world speaks. Before all else, it utters speaking itself. Or does speaking utter the world.” So begin the first two chapters of this inspired, existential meditation on the contemporary meaning of the message of St. John: “In the ... View more info

The honey bee has lived in close association with human beings for millennia. Tragically, however, humanity’s once intimate connection with this unique creature has been harmed by our increasingly utilitarian and exploitative dealings with the natural world. We are now in urgent need of re-establishing a deeper relationship, not just for the sake of the bees themselves but for the whole of nature – and of course for ourselves. Lorenzen – a true master beekeeper – provides numerous insights to enable a more fruitful engagement with the living world. Offering an enric... View more info

ISBN: 1912230194


In an extraordinary exposition, Lorenzen - an expert beekeeper and student of contemporary spiritual science - describes the Logos mysteries, based at the ancient temple of Artemis in Ephesus, where priestesses were known as "Melissas" (honeybees), while the sacrificial priests were called “"Essenes" (bee kings). These cultic mysteries, he says, bore remarkable parallels to the workings of a bee colony—specifically in the relationship between the queen and worker bees to the bees' spiritual group soul. Lorenzen commences his unique study with a discussion o... View more info

‘Spiritual knowledge is not given to us as in ancient times. By spiritual means it must be struggled and striven for against a host of demons... We must therefore get to know the powers that would cover up and obscure all spiritual knowledge.’ – from the Preface ‘The world seems to be standing within a demonic storm that threatens to overwhelm it’, states T.H. Meyer at the outset of this rousing call for a wide-ranging, spiritual-scientific knowledge of the world. Appeals to traditional religious belief will no longer pacify this storm, and neither will ‘... View more info

Through his books and lectures he provided an impetus for the spiritual renewal of many human activities, including education (Steiner Waldorf schools), agriculture, medicine, economics, the arts and religion. Steiner showed how mankind has been evolving and explained the role of the great spiritual world leaders in the process. Above all he showed how the impulse to evolution given by Christ's death and resurrection - what he referred to as the Mystery of Golgotha - is of unique importance ... View more info

The development of consciousness, the intimate relationship between the physical world and higher worlds, and the power of the word as a transforming force are recurring themes in these talks by Carlo Pietzner. He explores the inherent attributes of sulfur, iron, salt, and calcium, which serve as essential elements in the development of a human being. Important thresholds such as the moon node and the inner and outer experiences of dawn and dusk further illustrate how we evolve in time. The themes are woven together and enlightened through an intensive study and reflection on the word and its ... View more info
