BEHAVIOURAL DISORDERS IN CHILDREN AND ADULTS
A Fresh Perspective
Insight – Empathy – Treatment
• Geertje Post Uiterweer
‘This book describes an essential insight, namely that the core or the individual “I” of those with a mental health issue or a learning disability is always healthy.’
CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, THE
• Judith von Halle
What lies at the root of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the worldwide pandemic it has caused, affecting the health and livelihoods of untold millions of people? What are the deeper, spiritual realities behind COVID-19 and the global turmoil it has left in its trail? In an effort to answer these queries and many others put to her at the start of the pandemic, Judith von Halle composed two letters in March 2020, based on her own spiritual-scientific research. Published in this book together with an additional essay, she addresses questions such as:
Which entities stand behind the virus?
How and why does it affect human beings?
What measures can be taken for prevention and therapy?
What does the crisis mean to individuals and what possibilities does it offer for personal development?
FREEMASONRY AND RUDOLF STEINER
An Introduction to the Masonic Imagination
• N.V.P. Franklin
Today some six million Freemasons around the world continue to perform their rituals regularly – an enormous legacy of spiritual endeavour, kept largely in secret. In Britain alone there are over 7,000 Lodges, with a quarter of a million members. What is this wealth, this appeal, and how did the philosopher and spiritual scientist Rudolf Steiner reinterpret or reconstruct Freemasonry’s time-worn legacy?
FROM THE MYSTERIES
• Hermann Beckh
In the early part of the last century, Professor Hermann Beckh began a search to discover the truth about the Mystery wisdom of antiquity. As a recognized authority on Buddhist texts, he knew that complete knowledge of such Mysteries was not to be found within the limitations of waking consciousness, sense perception and logic. Beckh was already aware that Gautama Buddha had indicated the stages of higher knowledge. Furthermore, his studies of Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophical teachings revealed that such knowledge could be experienced directly, given disciplined meditation. Clairvoyant cognition included the conscious penetration of sleep consciousness, the dream state and an experience of pre-natal consciousness. Both the Mysteries and Rudolf Steiner’s major books, he concluded, were founded on the same perceptions.
FUTURE ART OF CINEMA, THE
Rudolf Steiner’s Vision
• Reto Andrea Savoldelli
From Joseph Vogelsang and his mysterious peep-box to Hollywood blockbusters and Netflix, R.A. Savoldelli’s survey of cinema and film is based on practical experience – he was once the enfant terrible of Swiss cinema – and years of contemplation and study. He examines the difference between film as the ‘hypnotic monster’ referred to by the Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini, and the art of film that Rudolf Steiner aspired to. The author depicts the historical development of cinema from its origins, paying particular attention to science fiction – from Star Wars to The Matrix – and influential filmmakers such as Eric Rohmer, Andrei Tarkovsky and Pasolini.
GARDENING AS A SACRED ART
Towards the Redemption of our Relationship with Nature
• Jeremy Naydler
This beautifully illustrated book presents a history of our relationship with nature, beginning with the civilisations of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, when gardens served as ‘the dwelling place of the gods’. Tracing this history through subsequent epochs, the author shows how human awareness of the divine presence in nature was gradually eclipsed. As nature came to be viewed primarily as a physical resource to be controlled and exploited by us, this was reflected in the ordered, rational designs imposed on such gardens as Versailles. More recently, gardening has come to be seen less as an instrument of control than as an art in its own right, enhancing nature’s inherent beauty. Jeremy Naydler suggests that the future of gardening lies not simply in its being regarded as an art but as a sacred art, which once again honours and works with the spiritual dimension intrinsic to nature.
Life And Work
• Gundhild Kačer-Bock
Hermann Beckh (1875-1937) was one of the co-founders of The Christian Community. A remarkable linguist and universal scholar, he mastered six European and six Oriental languages and published more than twenty works on the humanities, dealing with Christology, Cosmology and Musicology. Having first studied Law, he later channeled his extensive research of Hinduism and Buddhism into a renewal of sacramental Christianity. ‘Without the Professor’, wrote his colleague Rudolf Meyer, the beginnings of the new religious movement were ‘unthinkable’.
LANGUAGE OF THE STARS, THE
Zodiac and Planets in Relation to the Human Being
The Cosmic Rhythm in the Creed
• Hermann Beckh • Rudolf Frieling
‘Astrology is a concern of the Christ and the work of Michael.’ – Hermann Beckh
The Cosmic Rhythm
• Hermann Beckh
Hermann Beckh’s masterful study of Mark’s Gospel offers much more than scholarly argument. It is the work of a true visionary who allows his readers to discover the meaning of the Earth and of humanity for themselves. Beckh was in the forefront of entirely new research and recovery of the Gospel, writing more for the future than for his own time.
MICHAEL PROPHECY AND THE YEARS 2012-2033, THE
Rudolf Steiner and the Culmination of Anthroposophy
• Steffen Hartmann
In a series of vibrant and lively essays, Steffen Hartmann focuses on a little-known but critically important theme relating to the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. Steiner described the collaboration between human souls connected to the Platonic and Aristotelian ‘schools’ or groupings – both here on Earth and in the spiritual world. These groupings of souls work within a wider metaphysical collective known as the ‘Michael School’, led by the ruling Spirit of our age, Michael. Prior to their births, millions of human souls were prepared within this School to help them face the challenges of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
MORE PRECIOUS THAN LIGHT
How dialogue can transform relationships and build community
• Margarete van den Brink
Relationships are built through dialogue – through exploring heartfelt questions that lead to liberating personal insights. This book shows how such dialogue can transform relationships and build community. However, true meeting and healing conversations take effort. Encounter involves light and dark. Relationships bring out sympathy and antipathy. In an age of digital communications and internet-based encounters – when alienation and loneliness are very real issues – this new edition of Margarete van den Brink’s classic work is more vital than ever.
• 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.’
OWEN BARFIELD, ROMANTICISM COME OF AGE
‘Barfield towers above us all… the wisest and best of my unofficial teachers.’ – C.S. Lewis
• Sergei O. Prokofieff
Underlying Sergei O. Prokofieff’s life’s work was a fundamental research-theme to which he returned to repeatedly: the individuality of Rudolf Steiner as manifested through his past incarnations on Earth. Beginning in 1982, inspired by a visit to an exhibition on The Epic of Gilgamesh, Prokofieff planned a full-scale spiritual biography with the intention of finding an answer to the question: Who is Rudolf Steiner?
The Behaviour of Pathological Entities in Illness and Healing and the Relationship between Human Beings and Animals
From Polarity to Triunity
• Are Thoresen
‘I wrote this book out of the needs I see at the present time. I see diseases being translocated to others – humans or animals – despite the good intentions of many therapists or doctors. The diseases are translocated because they do not exist in energetic patterns, but as expressions of spiritual beings. Energy and energy-patterns only exist in the physical world, but in the spiritual world there are only spiritual beings.’
STRUGGLE FOR A HUMAN FUTURE, THE
5G, Augmented Reality and the Internet of Things
• Jeremy Naydler
With its wireless networks encompassing the globe, the Digital Revolution is altering the very fabric of our lives with alarming rapidity. New technologies are bringing about an ever closer union between human beings and machines, whilst at the same time transforming our planet into an increasingly hybrid ‘cyber-physical’ world.
SUN KING’S COUNSELLOR, CECIL HARWOOD
A Documentary Biography
• Simon Blaxland-de Lange
‘He [Harwood] is the sole Horatio known to me in this age of Hamlets…’ – C. S. Lewis, from Surprised by Joy
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.
TWILIGHT AND RESURRECTION OF HUMANITY, THE
The History of the Michaelic Movement since the Death of Rudolf Steiner
An Esoteric Study
• Yeshayahu (Jesaiah) Ben-Aharon
This unique work – the fruit of many decades’ research and experience – throws new light on the supersensible history and karma of the Michaelic movement since Rudolf Steiner’s death. It describes that movement’s evolution and transformation in the etheric world during the twentieth century, from the world-changing apocalypse of the 1930s and 40s through to the beginning of its incarnation on Earth at the end of last century. The book also focuses on developments in the practical and social work of building the community of the School of Spiritual Science, which embodies the new Michaelic movement in our time.
WISDOM OF TEETH, THE
Dentosophy – A Gateway to Health
From Oral Balance to Total Balance
• Michel Montaud
What if our teeth are a reflection of who we are? What if dental problems such as toothache, decay and malpositioning illustrate the deep functioning of our true self? What if, by harmonizing our mouths, we could allay many of our physical and mental ills?
