Destiny as a Question of Knowledge
• Peter Tradowsky
Stigmata - the spontaneous appearance of bodily marks in locations corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ - have long been a controversial phenomenon. Former well-known stigmatics, such as Saint Francis of Assisi, Anne Catherine Emmerich and Therese Neumann, have mostly been associated with the Catholic Church. Judith von Halle however, who received the stigmata at Passiontide in 2004, is a member of the Anthroposophical Society, and has to date published a dozen notable volumes of spiritual-scientific research.
STORY OF EMERSON COLLEGE, THE
Its Founding Impulse, Work and Form
• Michael Spence
"Emerson was really a working together - a sum total of all the life's paths, the working of karma and the fulfilling of pre-birth impulses and intentions of so many people, both staff and students. Every person who came to Emerson in some way touched it and changed it. Each year had its own biography. It was never an institution to which people came and passed through without leaving any mark on it." - Michael Spence

TEMPLE AND THE GRAIL, THE
The Mysteries of the Order of the Templars and the Grail and their Significance for Our Time
• W. F. Veltman
In the popular imagination, the Holy Grail – part of the legendary romance of King Arthur – belongs to the realm of myth. The Knights Templar also have a legendary, enigmatic aspect. Despite the immense volume of historical research available, plausible explanations to the ‘mystery’ at the core of their practices have yet to be revealed.
THINKERS, SAINTS, HERETICS
Spiritual Paths of the Middle Ages
• Virginia Sease • Manfred Schmidt-Brabant
Whether souls have returned in physical incarnations as Platonists, as Aristotelians, as pupils of Chartres, as members of the Dominican Order, as Templars, as Cathars, or whether these souls accompany us as spiritual beings, a stream of spiritual continuity that begins in the Middle Ages flows through human history.
THREE MEETINGS, THE
Christ, Michael and Anthroposophia
• Yeshayahu (Jesaiah) Ben-Aharon
‘How can our souls unite with the etheric Christ, experienced in the etheric world since the end of the last century? What steps should we take, in the second century of the age of Michael, to unite with Him?’
THREEFOLD NATURE OF DESTINY LEARNING
• Coenraad van Houten
'Destiny Learning', a path of adult education conceived and developed by Coenraad van Houten (based on the work of Rudolf Steiner), is here expanded to show a threefold way of working with karma: understanding, transforming and ordering. This threefold approach opens new vistas for healing relationships and conflicts, for developing creative faculties for community building, and for taking initiatives based on freedom. The author widens and deepens his previous work on the theme, showing that learning from destiny, as well as awakening the forces of will, are ongoing processes. He offers practical advice that is directly applicable to everyday life.
TONGUES OF FLAME
A Meta-Historical Approach to Drama
The Actor of the Future, Vol. 1
• Dawn Langman
Building on her fundamental texts The Art of Acting and The Art of Speech, Dawn Langman shows how the great dramas of Western heritage illuminate the evolution of human consciousness – from the past and into the future – thus providing a context in which actors can consciously evolve their art. Having laid her foundation by exploring the Eleusis Mysteries – the seed point of Western drama – she moves to the end of the nineteenth century, when drama and performance practice prepared for its next great evolutionary leap. She explores the connection of this leap to the evolutionary threshold facing human beings at the end of what occult history calls Kali Yuga.

TRAVELS ON THE NORTHERN PATH OF INITIATION
Vidar and Baldur, the Three Elemental Realms and the Inner and Outer Etheric worlds
• Are Thoresen
In March 2020, Are Thoresen contracted Covid-19. Whilst convalescing from the disease and suffering great exhaustion, he experienced a breakthrough in his daily meditation. Although he has always been able to ‘see’ into the spiritual world, now deeper, unknown realms appeared to his inner vision. In the soapstone surround of the fireplace in his Norwegian home, he perceived the elemental beings and forces that make up the mineral at an atomic level. A few days later, an even deeper dimension revealed itself, in the form of a void or vacuum. Here, astonishingly, was an open portal to the entire cosmos...
