ART, AESTHETICS AND COLOUR
Aristotle – Thomas Aquinas – Rudolf Steiner
An Anthology of Original Texts

• Edited by Angela Lord

In this innovative anthology, Angela Lord presents a unique series of commentaries on art, aesthetics and colour by three of western culture’s greatest intellects. Her comparative study of the works of Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas and Rudolf Steiner illustrates how each of these towering thinkers employed an individual and groundbreaking approach. Yet, remarkably, there are common threads that weave through their collective works that have previously been overlooked.

BEES AND THE ANCIENT MYSTERIES

• Iwer Thor Lorenzen

In an extraordinary exposition, Lorenzen – an expert beekeeper and student of contemporary spiritual science – describes the ‘Logos mysteries’, based at the ancient temple of Artemis in Ephesus, where priestesses were known as ‘Melissas’ (‘honeybees’) and the sacrificial priests were called ‘Essenes’ (or ‘bee-kings’). These cultic mysteries, he says, bore remarkable parallels to the workings of a bee colony – specifically in the relationship between the queen and worker bees to the spiritual ‘group-soul’ of the bees.

BUDDHA'S LIFE AND TEACHING

• Hermann Beckh

‘The book before us here is not some kind of dusty text or just another undergraduate-level introduction to Buddhism. It is nothing less than the still, clear, luminous centre of a hurricane...’ – Neil Franklin (from the Foreword)

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

FROM BUDDHA TO CHRIST

• Hermann Beckh

‘Christianizing the Buddha’s impulse at the same time broadens the Christian horizon…’ – Hermann Beckh

GOLDEN KEY, THE

• George MacDonald • Illustrated by Angela Lord

There was a boy who used to sit in the twilight and listen to his great-aunt’s stories. She told him that if he could reach the place where the end of the rainbow stands he would find there a golden key...

HUMANITY’S LAST STAND
The Challenge of Artificial Intelligence
A Spiritual-Scientific Response

• Nicanor Perlas

Although still in its earliest stages, artificial intelligence (AI) is radically transforming all aspects of society. With the immanent emergence of Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI) and the illusory temptations of ‘transhumanism’, mankind stands at a crossroads. In Humanity’s Last Stand, Nicanor Perlas makes an urgent plea. It is imperative, he says, that we take immediate steps to ensure that digitized technology is aligned to human values and priorities. Otherwise, ASI will kill the essence of our humanity. Further, if we do not master it now, ASI will transform mankind into its own image. Ultimately, it will destroy the human race.

IF THE ORGANS COULD SPEAK
The Foundations of Physical and Mental Health
Understanding the Character of our Inner Anatomy

• Olaf Koob

‘This book can help us trace the secrets of our own body, to see it as a wonder of creation, and to marvel at it time and again with reverence and gratitude…’ – Prof. Dr Volker Fintelmann

IN THE SHADOW OF THE MACHINE
The Prehistory of the Computer and the Evolution of Consciousness

• Jeremy Naydler

Contemporary life is so deeply reliant upon digital technology that the computer has come to dominate almost every aspect of our culture. What is the philosophical and spiritual significance of this dependence on electronic technology, both for our relationship to nature and for the future of humanity? And, what processes in human perception and awareness have produced the situation we find ourselves in?

JERUSALEM
The Role of the Hebrew People in the Spiritual Biography of Humanity

• Yeshayahu (Jesaiah) Ben-Aharon

‘The better I understand the roots of the Hebrew people and its universal-human mission, the better I shall understand the nature of humanity and its mission; and the more human I become, in the most universal sense, anchored in a new spiritual knowledge and practice, the more fulfilled, active and creative I can be at the roots of my existence as a Jew and an Israeli.’ – Yeshayahu Ben-Aharon

MEDITATIONS
on the Greatest Gift Ever Given

• Michael S. Ridenour

‘Finding unity with Christ is not a given; it depends on turning the ego – that provides our sense of experiencing ourselves as a unique being – into an instrument of loving perception that connects with other beings. Learning to do this makes the path to Christ a path of self-knowledge, where the freedom to make mistakes and consequent error lets us see ourselves with humility as we come to know how to bring love into what we say and do.’ (From the Introduction)

SEAT OF THE SOUL, THE
Rudolf Steiner’s Seven Planetary Seals
A Biological Perspective

• Yvan Rioux

There is one temple in the Universe and it is the body of Man.’ – Novalis

SHAPING GLOBALIZATION
Civil Society, Cultural Power and Threefolding

• Nicanor Perlas

‘Nicanor Perlas has written a brilliant exposition of a new viewpoint in social theory and practice, one that applies to all of us in our everyday lives.’ — Paul H. Ray, author of The Cultural Creatives

SYMPHONIES OF CREATION
The Primal Elementary Kingdoms in the Work of Rudolf Steiner

• Oskar Kürten

No true understanding of the world is possible without an understanding of the elementary kingdoms.’ – Oskar Kürten

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.

TWO JESUS BOYS, THE
and the Messianic Expectations of the Essenes

• Christoph Rau

The two contradicting genealogies of Jesus in the Gospels have long puzzled biblical scholars. Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual research led him to the controversial theological conclusion that historically there existed two Jesus boys, born of two holy families. These two boys, he said, were necessary as part of the spiritual preparation of forming a suitable human body for the incarnation of Christ into the earthly realm. Both apocryphal texts and the writings of the Essenes – as discovered at Qumran by the Dead Sea – now appear to support this conception, with references to Messianic figures from both royal and priestly lines.
