17 lectures, Berlin, Feb.–May. 1917, CW 175 ‘If one is unable to conceive of the Christ mystery as a true reality, one also cannot develop any ideas and concepts relating to the rest of world existence that are imbued with reality, which really penetrate to the truth’. – Rudolf Steiner In a series of 17 lectures, Rudolf Steiner throws new light on the historical background and esoteric meaning of what he refers to as the central event of human and earthly history: the Christ mystery or ‘the Mystery of Golgotha’.

Seller ID: 10108

ISBN: 0893452270


"Rudolf Steiner shows that the insoluble link between humanity and cosmos is the fundamental basis of evolution. As human beings have participated in the development of the world we know today, so their achievements are directly connected with the ultimate destiny of the universe. In human hands rests the freedom to shape the future course of creation. Knowledge of our exalted origins and of the path we have followed is indispensable if we are to evolve a future worthy of responsible human beings.... Through a study of Steiner’s writings, one can come to a clear, reasonable, comprehe... View more info

ISBN: 1621481778


NEW! Published April 2018 Today’s orthodox notions of science—or knowing—are exceedingly narrow; they posit, implicitly or otherwise, that the only knowledge possible, if any, is of the physical world. However, the skeleton key to unlocking the door beyond which lies the root of the problems and difficulties of our age (and thus their solution) is to be able to fully answer this question: What is it to know something? This question is at the foundation of Spiritual Science. Rudolf Steiner had to solve it for himself first, and then pointed the way for others to do the s... View more info

Imagination Enhancing the Powers of Thinking

By: STEINER, RUDOLF

Price: $33.00

Publisher: Rudolf Steiner Press:

Seller ID: 15509


Rudolf Steiner differentiated clearly between the spiritual concept of Imagination and our everyday understanding of the word. As living, pictorial thinking, Imagination is a primary aspect of the contemporary path of inner schooling – the first of three levels of initiate knowledge and cognition. Imagination leads us into a world of flowing, living pictures: a realm of soul and spirit in which everything is in continual movement. This anthology offers a survey of the diverse aspects of Imagination and imaginative cognition. As the thematically re-ordered texts reveal, Rudolf St... View more info

Hardback with slip-in case Goethean Science features Rudolf Steiner's introductions to Goethe's works, re-visioning the meaning of knowledge and how we attain it.

Goethe's literary genius was universally acknowledged; it was Steiner's task to understand and comment on Goethe's scientific ach... View more info

GA234 Although these nine lectures were given to an audience that had been studying anthroposophy, or spiritual science, for many years, they were nevertheless described by Rudolf Steiner as an ‘introductory course’. Given shortly after the Christmas Foundation Meeting, in which Rudolf Steiner refounded and renewed the Anthroposophical Society, these lectures reformulate the content of spiritual science from a condensed, personal, experiential point of view. What Steiner presented in his fundamental work Theosophy in a descriptive, systematic way, is complemented here with gr... View more info

8 lectures, Oslo, Nov-Dec, 1921, GA 79 The lectures in this book cover a wide range of topics, though Rudolf Steiner continually brings the focus back to the importance of "I"-consciousness in relation to the higher worlds. Hence, the title of this English edition: Self-Consciousness. They were delivered by Steiner in 1921. Today, their content remains valid and the world situation even more desperate and in need of change in keeping with spiritual-scientific knowledge. The need for developing "consciousness of the self as the spiritual essence of the free, individua... View more info

Seller ID: 15223

ISBN: 1855845490


As a spiritual teacher, Rudolf Steiner wrote many inspired and beautifully-crafted verses. Often they were given in relation to specific situations or in response to individual requests; sometimes they were offered to assist generally in the process of meditation. Regardless of their origins, they are uniformly powerful in their ability to connect the meditating individual with spiritual archetypes. Thus, the meditations provide valuable tools for developing experience and knowledge of subtle dimensions of reality. Matthew Barton has translated and selected Steiner’s verses, sensitiv...

9 lectures, Dornach, Apr - Jun 1922, CW 212 How are we connected to the world around us? This question, says Rudolf Steiner, is one that lives subliminally, drawing us into the depths of the psyche. There, our candle of consciousness tends to flicker and go out. But spiritual schooling can relight it, so that we learn to perceive realms of our being beyond the restricted self. Whilst Steiner was undertaking major lecture tours of Germany and England, he took time to address his followers at the world centre of anthroposophy in Dornach, Switzerland. He speaks here on thr...

Publisher: Rudolf Steiner Press:

Seller ID: 13791

ISBN: 1855844125


Many spiritual traditions speak of a ‘guardian’ or ‘dweller’ who protects the threshold to the spiritual world, warning the unprepared to pause in their quest for access to higher knowledge. The Guardian reveals the consequences of our negative actions and points to the full reality of our untransformed nature. This experience is said to be one of the deepest and most harrowing on the inner path, but is an essential precondition to any form of true initiation. The words ‘Know thyself’ were inscribed at the forecourt of the ancient Greek Temple of Ap... View more info

".... Facing the human soul stands the whole world: dark unknown like the blue of the sky. But what is unknown comes. The human soul must feel this coming like the extinguishing of itself. Sensing this self-extinguishing is followed by the right to recreate oneself anew from the outer world that has been absorbed. I am I." Rudolf Steiner made it his task to teach nothing that he had not experienced himself and always encouraged others to make individual spiritual-meditative research the basis of their spiritual lives. Therefore he gave many spiritual exercises to his... View more info

illustrations This jewel of a book — consisting of seven lectures given in various cities, mostly in 1918 — movingly and with great spiritual maturity and rare emotional intensity expresses Rudolf Steiner’s wisdom, insight, and compassion. Several lectures deal primarily with aspects of life after death. The first describes the three realms after earthly life: that of intense, surging sensation (sympathy and antipathy); that of the ebb and flow of will impulses that stream into the human sphere, affecting in increasingly wider circles human life on earth (karmic relatio...

Hardback with slip-in case The mystics Steiner writes about in this book were early giants in the modern art of illumined self-knowledge. Their ways of seeing the world, God, and themselves foreshadowed all that we practice now in the best of meditation, both East and West.

Steiner immerses us in the evolving stream of these eleven mystics who appeared in central Europe between the thirteenth and seventeenth centuri... View more info

Hardback with slip-in case The Case for Anthroposophy is a complete English edition of one of the most important books by Rudolf Steiner, who said that the first essay was written not with a pen, but with “soul spades that want to rip away the planks that board up the world—i.e., clear away the limits to knowledge set by natural science—but want to do so through one’s inner work of the soul.” In the second essay, Rudolf Steiner goes head-to-head with Max Dessoir, a typical materialist and foe of the spirit; Dessoir’s response to Steiner's ess...

Originally published as Psychoanalysis in the Light on Anthroposophy, and as Psychoanalysis & Spiritual Psychology "Imagine, just for a moment, how many people in the world practice psychotherapy, how many are patients of one therapy or another, and how many are now involved in the growing numbers of therapeutic groups focused on various addictions. One might think that a great deal of ‘soul work’ goes on here.

In this seminal work on a new art of speech, Rudolf and Marie Steiner demonstrate how the Word can truly be brought to life. From the authors’ perspective, the audible sound of speech is only the end result of a much greater process that begins inwardly. In contrast to the belief that speaking is entirely a matter of correct placement in the mouth, Rudolf Steiner advises speakers to concentrate on what takes place before the mechanical production of sound is made in the physical organism. Relevant to actors, teachers, therapists and anybody seeking to reinvigorate the art of the Word... View more info
