OCCULT SIGNIFICANCE OF FORGIVENESS

• Sergei 0. Prokofieff

A survey of recent history reveals a gloomy picture: an ongoing series of conflicts, wars and general turmoil. As a result of all this, the human emotional landscape has become littered with angry, bitter and vengeful feelings. The modern justice system, preoccupied as it is with finding and proving guilt, does little to remedy this tragic situation. However, many individuals and groups are seeking ways to break the never-ending cycle of recrimination.

ORIGINS OF THE ANTHROPOSOPHICAL SOCIETY IN THE LIGHT OF THE ANCIENT MYSTERIES, THE

• Frank Teichmann

In conducting his research into the mysteries of antiquity, Frank Teichmann made a series of discoveries that connect directly to contemporary events and the tasks of the present-day. Whilst scholarly in nature and based on extensive documentation of historical sites, Teichmann’s work is no dry academic study. In The Origins of the Anthroposophical Society, he offers incisive new insights into Rudolf Steiner’s seminal esoteric deed – the refounding of the Anthroposophical Society at the Christmas Conference of 1923-24 – and considers how it impacts us today. The Conference itself, says Teichmann, ‘...did not just appear out of nowhere, nor did it happen merely as the result of a decision on Rudolf Steiner’s part. It was prepared for long beforehand.’

PARZIVAL
An Introduction

• Eileen Hutchins

"Eschenbach is the first medieval poet to represent a character who has to win his way through trial and error, from ignorance to wisdom, and from fascination with the world of the senses to recognition of higher realms of experience. In this sense he is representative of modern man." - from the Introduction

PATHS OF THE CHRISTIAN MYSTERIES
From Compostela to the New World

• Virginia Sease • Manfred Schmidt-Brabant

Those who of three thousand years
Have no account to give
Are caught in darkness unawares
From day to day shall live.
Goethe

PHILOSOPHY AS AN APPROACH TO THE SPIRIT
An Introduction to the Fundamental Works of Rudolf Steiner

• Richard Seddon

'What was important for Steiner was less the body of his ideas themselves than the transformation they can bring about in the reader by opening the mind to the real nature of the spiritual world. Philosophy, properly regarded, is not the intellectual solution of abstract questions not being asked, but an activity that helps to resolve the questions which arise in the course of life itself. It must therefore itself become organically alive.' (From the Preface.)

PRACTISING DESTINY
Principles and Processes in Adult Learning

• Coenraad van Houten

More and more people are beginning to realize that education needs to continue throughout life. As individuals and collectively, we face the choice of either staying as we are, or striving constantly to develop.

PROPHECY OF THE RUSSIAN EPIC
How the Holy Mountains Released the Mighty Russian Heroes from their Rocky Caves

• Sergei 0. Prokofieff

A full interpretation and analysis of the Russian epic together with a clear introduction to anthroposophy.

READING THE FACE
Understanding a person's character through physiognomy

• Norbert Glas

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 with a face that is more pronounced in one of these areas will tend to have certain personality traits, as well as specific physiological characteristics. People with a strong mouth and chin, for example, tend to have a strong will and an active, driven and assertive nature.

REALITY, TRUTH AND EVIL
Facts, Questions and Perspectives on September 11, 2001

• T.H. Meyer

Using the events of 9/11 and Pearl Harbor as his backdrop, T.H. Meyer studies questions of reality, truth and evil, offering important new perspectives. He shows that Anglo-American political practice (influenced by secret societies such as Skull and Bones) is based on an ideology of polarity and conflict. Meyer offers instances of this tendency, encouraging what Huntington famously referred to as a 'clash of civilizations'. For example, a week before George Bush senior spoke in Congress about the need for a 'new world order', a 'humorous' cartoon map in the Economist divided the world's continents into religious and philosophical blocks, creating a new region called 'Islamistan'.

REINCARNATION IN MODERN LIFE
Towards a New Christian Awareness

• Pietro Archiati

Archiati brings the concept of reincarnation to bear on many aspects of modern life, including such vexed issues as abortion and rape. He also addresses the question of whether reincarnation appears in the New Testament, and explains how we can understand theological problems such as Christ's Resurrection and the Resurrection of the body from this wider context.

RELATING TO RUDOLF STEINER
and The Mystery of the Laying of the Foundation Stone

• Sergei O. Prokofieff

"It is my personal conviction that the question of our relationship to Rudolf Steiner is fundamental to the life of anthroposophy itself." - Sergei O. Prokofieff

RIDDLE OF DMITRI, THE
Considered from historical, psychological and spiritual-scientific viewpoints

• Sergei O. Prokofieff

In a private conversation on his deathbed, Rudolf Steiner informed his friend Count Polzer-Hoditz of three spiritual problems that would need to be resolved in the coming years: ‘Firstly, the question of the two Johns [John the Baptist and John the Evangelist]. Secondly: Who was Dmitri? Thirdly: Where did Caspar Hauser come from?’ Tackling these issues, said Steiner, would be of critical importance for humanity’s future. He added: ‘In all three problems it is important that one’s gaze is directed not towards death but towards birth. Where did they come from and with what tasks?’ In Dmitri’s case, Steiner emphasized that the most important thing was to discover what was to have been achieved through him.

RIDDLE OF THE HUMAN ‘I’
An Anthroposophical Study

• Sergei O. Prokofieff

‘Anyone who embarks upon the study of anthroposophy will soon recognise that the mystery of the human ego lies at its very heart. 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. Prokofieff

RUDOLF STEINER
An Introduction to his Spiritual World View

• Roy Wilkinson

In many ways, Rudolf Steiner is the forgotten genius of recent times. A powerful thinker, who developed an intricate spiritual philosophy based on his ability to research and perceive spiritual dimensions, Steiner is perhaps best known today for his legacy to education, medicine and agriculture. But behind these practical manifestations of his ideas lies a profound teaching, which he called a 'science of the spirit' or 'anthroposophy'. In these wonderfully succinct summaries of Steiner's thought, Roy Wilkinson introduces us to aspects of this spiritual philosophy.

RUDOLF STEINER AND THE FOUNDING OF THE NEW MYSTERIES

• Sergei O. Prokofieff

In this revised and expanded edition of his classic debut, Sergei O. Prokofieff investigates the deepest mysteries of Rudolf Steiner’s life and individuality, from ‘the years of apprenticeship’ and ‘the great Sun period’ to ‘the path of the Teacher of Humanity’ and ‘the birth of the New Mysteries’. He discusses the earthly and supersensible aspects of the first Goetheanum, the implications of the Christmas Conference of 1923-24, and the Foundation Stone meditation that Steiner left as a legacy to members of the Anthroposophical Society.
