WILL TO BE FREE
A Philosophy for Young People
• Valentin Wember
Rather than trying to prove that we are free, Wember describes a path which can enable us to become free. This freedom, unrelated to political or other forms of outer freedom, depends on inner activity. We can only become free, he argues, if we enliven our forces of will.
WOMEN WITH CHRIST
Contemplations on the Months of the Year
Twelve Women who Changed the World
• Louise Mary Sofair
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.
WORD MADE FLESH
The Actor of the Future, Vol. 2
• Dawn Langman
Building on the metahistorical exploration of drama that was the subject of Tongues of Flame, Dawn Langman explores the practical pathways through which the art of acting can evolve beyond the ‘body and soul’ paradigm still broadly accepted in contemporary culture. Through the integration of Rudolf Steiner’s research in the arts of speech and eurythmy, and together with Michael Chekhov’s acting techniques, Langman raises the spiritual dimension of the human being from that vague sensing which many actors intuit – but which has, however, little bearing on their practice – into a precise methodology. In this second volume in her series on ‘The Actor of the Future’, she offers performance artists a clear pathway ahead, enabling them to develop their work out of spiritual insight and consciousness.
An Exploration into the Language of Form, Gesture and Colour
• Gertraud Goodwin (Ed.)
From ancient times, people had knowledge of the zodiac’s intimate involvement in the creation of physical life. They understood that the twelve realms of constellations of fixed stars in the sky emanated specific forces that were brought to life and movement by the planets. These spiritual energies created and formed all living beings on earth – including, of course, the human being. This traditional awareness has been reenlivened and given new meaning in our time through Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy. Steiner gave specific indications involving twelve individual gestures and colours that depict the forces of the twelve zodiacal regions.
