Rudolf Steiner’s Watercolour Painting

• Angela Lord

spacer
spacer

Rudolf Steiner painted his Archetypal Plant watercolour in 1924, at a time when contemporary scientific methodologies were emerging and nature was being examined under the microscope. In contrast to the dissecting tendencies of natural science, however, Steiner’s painting depicts the living, dynamic potential which stands behind the plant – lifting us out of the specific genus and providing an image of the growing and formative forces inherent within each individual plant.

On Sicily, the Island of Cain – An Esoteric Travelogue

• T. H. Meyer

spacer
spacer

Drawn by the mysterious mount Etna, Thomas Meyer sets off on a quest to discover the secrets of the Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Stromboli. The Sicilian region is not only famous for the drama of its live volcanoes, but also for its associations with numerous cultural figures – ranging from Cain, Empedocles, Klingsor and the much maligned Cagliostro, through to Goethe and Rudolf Steiner. The author ponders their lives, work and karmic connections, whilst unexpected meetings with cryptic strangers result in discussions that are filled with spiritual insights and pearls of wisdom.

On the Esoteric in Shakespeare

• Josie Alwyn • Brien Masters

spacer
spacer

‘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. Each play is made as an exquisitely unique transformative device for the education of the soul.’

spacer EIGHTFOLD PATH, THE
spacer

A Way of Development for those Working in Education, Therapy and the Caring Professions

• Joop van Dam

spacer
spacer

Centuries before the birth of Christ, Buddha taught a path of love, compassion and forgiveness originating from his experiences of suffering in the world. The cause of suffering, he believed, lay within the soul, which had become self-centred and egotistic. Buddha inaugurated the Eightfold Path for purification and transformation – eight exercises which could lead to a new relationship with the world, from self-centredness to a warm interest in one’s environment and in other people. The exercises, described and explained here in their correct sequence – with each preparing the individual for the next step – are: the right view, the right resolve, the right word, the right action, the right standpoint, the right effort, the right remembrance and the right contemplation.

In this concise and richly-illustrated work, Olive Whicher introduces a radical new science of living organisms, forms and processes, based on the pioneering work of Rudolf Steiner and his pupil George Adams.

Lory Maier-Smits, The First Eurythmist

• Magdalene Siegloch

spacer
spacer

The actual historical moments of birth of the various arts are not known. At most, significant changes of direction are distinguishable – and these are usually detected retrospectively. However, the founding of eurythmy, a new art of movement, has been extensively documented. The story of the first eurythmist, Lory Maier-Smits, told in the pages of this profusely-illustrated book, is a valuable contribution to that legacy. It brings to life the pioneering period when the new artform was being developed under Rudolf Steiner’s personal instruction.

The Five Spiritual Events, Tasks and Beings of the First Half of the Age of Michael

An Apocalyptic View of Contemporary History

• T.H. Meyer

spacer
spacer

‘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

Lightning, Rainbows and the Northern Lights

A Spiritual-Scientific Study

• Walter Bühler

spacer
spacer

‘Goethe called colour the deeds and sufferings of the light – victorious deeds when it pierces matter, and suffering when it endures the darkness in matter. Indeed, there is no greater contrast in the whole cosmos than that between matter and light .’

Journeys Through Transformation of Form

• Gertraud Goodwin

‘Approaching the different and manifold sequences in this book... one will gradually come to realise that metamorphosis can become an ideal for knowledge, a guiding path for self-knowledge and knowledge of the world – as intuitive contemplation and as artistic creation.’ – Dr Peter Wolf

in the life of Rudolf Steiner and in the development of anthroposophy

• T.H. Meyer

spacer
spacer

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?

spacer MONEY MATTERS – BUT SO DOES TRUST!
spacer

From an Economy based on Money to an Economy based on Human Value

• Pietro Archiati

spacer
spacer

The financial crisis of 2008 ignited a general psychology of fear. This crisis of confidence was not just a crisis of capitalism, argues the author, but a crisis of materialism – the one-sided fixation on material prosperity. Tackling real questions relating to personal finances, savings, work, individual creativity and talent, Archiati offers a multitude of stimulating thoughts and new ideas. The alternative to fear around money, he says, is the joy of being constructively busy. It makes a person happy to be able to express their individual talents and abilities – and it also benefits society!

spacer MYSTERIES, THE
spacer

• Ita Wegman

spacer
spacer

‘To Ita Wegman, the Mysteries were a subject of abiding significance and one which played a major part in the relationship between herself and her teacher, Rudolf Steiner. Not only did he bestow upon her intimate revelations of Mysteries from a distant past but he also answered her request for a renewal of the Mysteries today.’ – from the Foreword

spacer SPIRITUAL ORIGINS OF EASTERN EUROPE AND THE FUTURE MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY GRAIL, THE
spacer

• Sergei O. Prokofieff

spacer
spacer

‘And however paradoxical it may seem today, the “Grail mood” is in the fullest sense to be found in Russia. 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

spacer
spacer TWELVE HOLY NIGHTS AND THE SPIRITUAL HIERARCHIES
spacer

• Sergei O. Prokofieff

spacer
spacer

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 masterpiece, destroyed by fire in 1922, whose structure and decorations are seen to constitute a coherent esoteric map. Our task now, he suggests, is to build the First Goetheanum in ourselves and, through a new schooling of the self, strive for a truly modern path of initiation. Supplementary essays focus on the cosmic aspects of Sophia as well as the being of Michael.

Thoughts on Old Age, Death and Dying

• Almut Bockemühl

spacer
spacer

‘Growing old is a constant battle... One has the experience of being squeezed out of one’s bodily home, and one sets out to protect oneself against it, and holds on to what one can.... But when we make an effort to grow old in the right way, which means transforming what is earthly into what is spiritual, we are working at the transubstantiation of the earth.’

Spiritual Encounters with Jesus Christ

Reports from the Religious-Social Institute, Stockholm

• Gunnar Hillerdal • Berndt Gustafsson

spacer

‘And at this moment a peculiar, inconceivable, but wonderful thing happened. Suddenly – I assure you, completely unexpected and unwished for – I felt precisely that Someone stood beside me, Someone who radiated comfort and strength. And I heard, but without sound... as clearly and distinctly as if someone had literally spoken to me: “Do not despair, you are not alone, I am alive.”’

Contemplations on the Months of the Year

Twelve Women who Changed the World

• Louise Mary Sofair

spacer
spacer

In a rich contemplation of Christian life and practise, Louise Mary Sofair relates the events in the Gospels to the rhythms of the year. Viewing the key Christian festivals from the perspective of the twelve months of the yearly cycle, she points to relevant events in the Gospels, focusing on the role of women. In the second part of the book she celebrates the biographies of twelve influential women who played significant roles in humanity’s development – from the medieval Clare of Assisi and Eleanor of Castile to the more recent Edith Stein and Ita Wegman.
