• Sergei O. Prokofieff • Peter Selg

CYCLE OF THE SEASONS AND THE SEVEN LIBERAL ARTS
• Sergei 0. Prokofieff
Prokofieff provides ideas for establishing a connection between the various arts, the cycle of the seasons and the festivals.
CYCLE OF THE YEAR AS A PATH OF INITIATION, THE
LEADING TO AN EXPERIENCE OF THE CHRIST BEING
An Esoteric Study
• Sergei O. Prokofieff
In ancient times humanity possessed an innate knowledge of the spiritual foundations of existence. Such knowledge could be acquired through inwardly accompanying the cycle of the year and its connected great seasonal festivals. But this instinctive knowledge had to be lost in order for human beings to discover individual freedom. In our time, as Sergei O. Prokofieff demonstrates in this comprehensive work, "... this knowledge must be found anew through the free, light-filled consciousness of the fully developed human personality".
• Judith von Halle • Translated by Frank Thomas Smith
‘Those involved with this illness professionally or as a relative can learn much from this study, which motivates them to a deepening of anthroposophy. They will also be inspired by how the author brings the illness into the realm of the living impulse of Christ.’ – Michaela Glöckler
DEMONS AND HEALING
The Reality of the Demonic Threat and the Doppelgänger in the Light of Anthroposophy
Demonology, Christology and Medicine
• Are Thoresen
‘Genius is a rare commodity that few of us attain. I see the colour-magic painted by Van Gogh, hear the music-magic of Beethoven, imagine touching the exquisite bronze of Rodin’s Thinker. I revere their work but know that I can never create such beauty. So it is with Are’s psychic skills.’ – Phil Rogers, MRCVS, Dublin
DEPARTURE OF THE PERFECTED ONE
The Story of the Buddha’s Transition from Earth to Nirvana
• Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Hermann Beckh
Presenting vivid pictures of Gautama Buddha’s life, teaching, suffering, death and subsequent nirvāṇa, the Mahāparinibbānasutta is one of the principal Buddhist texts. In Hermann Beckh’s words, it describes ‘…one of the greatest human beings that ever lived, who stood at the threshold of the super-human – a teacher and leader of humanity.’
DESCENT INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE EARTH
on the Anthroposophic Path of Schooling
• Judith von Halle • translated by Matthew Barton
'The contents of this volume have arisen from my own spiritual experience, and do not represent any kind of hypothesis or speculation, except where I expressly say that I am unable to make any definitive statement about a particular event or set of circumstances...' - Judith von Halle
DEVELOPING BIODYNAMIC AGRICULTURE
Reflections on Early Research
• Adalbert Count Keyserlingk
Genetic manipulation, industrial methods of agricultural production and disregard for natural laws have all led in recent times to growing public concern about the safety of food. As a result, there is a corresponding growth of interest in organic methods of farming. Biodynamic agriculture, founded by Rudolf Steiner in the 1920s, is a further development of the organic approach, using special preparations - which work in harmony with cosmic and earthly forces - to enrich the soil and enliven food.

Rudolf Steiner and the Sculpture of Christ in Dornach
• Peter Selg
‘The most essential and intrinsic quality of her soul … was not a particular branch of human endeavour, not even art; the most salient of her soul tendencies, her soul intentions, was the striving for spirituality…’ – Rudolf Steiner
EDUCATING THE SOUL
On the Esoteric in Shakespeare
• Josie Alwyn • Brien Masters
‘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.’
EIGHTFOLD PATH, THE
A Way of Development for those Working in Education, Therapy and the Caring Professions
• Joop van Dam
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.
ENCOUNTER WITH EVIL AND ITS OVERCOMING THROUGH SPIRITUAL SCIENCE
With Essays on The Foundation Stone
• Sergei 0. Prokofieff
In our everyday lives, we are constantly challenged by the phenomenon of evil in all its many manifestations. But how can we cope with this seemingly eternal hindrance?
ENCOUNTERS WITH VIDAR
Communications from the Outer Etheric Realm
From Clairvoyance to Clairaudience
• Are Thoresen
At the threshold that divides the elemental and etheric worlds, Are Thoresen encounters two spiritual entities – Vidar and Balder, ‘guardians of the threshold’ – whose task is to protect the spiritual border from uninitiated intruders. Building on previous reports, Encounters with Vidar offers startling new esoteric teachings, gleaned – through processes of spiritual knowledge – from these enigmatic gods. Here, Vidar and Balder emphasize the importance of clairaudience as opposed to clairvoyance (the latter particularly being open to attack from adversary beings). Through the process of working with the communications, the author begins to experience a transformation of his head chakras, leading to an awakening of ‘spiritual ears’. Whilst clairvoyance is like reading the holy script, clairaudience is akin to hearing the holy script, he learns.
