VALENTIN TOMBERG AND ANTHROPOSOPHY
A Problematic Relationship
• Sergei 0. Prokofieff
Valentin Tomberg was for many years a strong proponent of the science of spirit, anthroposophy, founded by Rudolf Steiner. He became prominent as a lecturer and writer, but in 1945 turned away from anthroposophy and converted to Roman Catholicism, authoring two influential Catholic texts. Nevertheless, a number of Tomberg's modern-day followers have maintained that he remained faithful to esoteric Christianity and Rudolf Steiner.
• Johannes Tautz
Based on personal knowledge and intimate interviews with his subject, as well as access to W.J. Stein’s archive of letters and documents, Tautz’s biography is a thoroughly-researched and lovingly-detailed study of an exceptional life.
WE ARE THE REVOLUTION!
Rudolf Steiner, Joseph Beuys and the Threefold Social Impulse
• Ulrich Roesch
Freedom for the spiritual-cultural life, equality and democracy for human rights, initiative and solidarity for the economic sphere!
WE EXPERIENCED CHRIST
Spiritual Encounters with Jesus Christ
Reports from the Religious-Social Institute, Stockholm
• Gunnar Hillerdal • Berndt Gustafsson
‘And at this moment a peculiar, inconceivable, but wonderful thing happened. Suddenly – I assure you, completely unexpected and unwished for – I felt precisely that Someone stood beside me, Someone who radiated comfort and strength. And I heard, but without sound... as clearly and distinctly as if someone had literally spoken to me: “Do not despair, you are not alone, I am alive.”’
WESTERN HOSTILITY TO RUSSIA
The Hidden Background to War in Ukraine
• Terry M. Boardman
What are the origins of the war in Ukraine? Contrary to popular opinion, the conflict is ultimately not between Russia and Ukraine but between Russia and the West. Neither did it begin with Russia’s invasion in 2022, nor the Maidan revolution in 2014.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE?
Our Journey in the Afterlife
• Margarete van den Brink • Hans Stolp
Is there truly life beyond death? What really happens when we die? Can the living stay connected with, or even help, their loved ones who have passed on? Answers to these questions have traditionally been sought for in Eastern religions but – perhaps surprisingly for some – they can also be found within the Christian tradition. In fact, such knowledge was prevalent in early Christianity, but was gradually suppressed and eventually forgotten.
• Sergei O. Prokofieff
Unlike other works on this theme, Sergei Prokofieff's short book is not a straightforward introduction. Presupposing an acquaintance with the basic principles of anthroposophy, it focuses instead on the central Christological insights which form the core of Rudolf Steiner's philosophy.
WHAT THE ANGELS NEED TO TELL US NOW
Receiving, Considering and Acting on their Messages
• Irene Johanson
"When an angel wants to be perceived he fixes his eyes on me. It feels the same as when a person stares at you. You look up from your book or your work and look in the direction from which the stare is coming. I am aware there is someone in the room, but I do not know, before I turn round, whether it is an angel, three angels, my dead father, my son's teacher or someone else. The presence can be felt, like the presence of a bodily human being... Once, an archangel was present. The air gets so dense, so full, it makes you afraid. You have the feeling you are being overwhelmed, you are not able to breathe any more..."
WHITSUN IMPULSE AND CHRIST'S ACTIVITY IN SOCIAL LIFE, THE
• Sergei O. Prokofieff
'In our brotherly study groups we accomplish work which streams upwards to the forces being prepared for the Spirit-Self.' - Rudolf Steiner
WHO WROTE BACON?
William Shakespeare, Francis Bacon and James I
A Mystery for the Twenty-first Century
• Richard Ramsbotham
For years a popular debate has been raging about whether Shakespeare really was the author of the many famous plays and poems published in his name. Shakespeare could not have accomplished this great feat, argue the doubters, and point instead to other well-known figures. Who Wrote Bacon? offers a completely new perspective, examining afresh the evidence to hand, and introducing unexplored aspects of Rudolf Steiner's spiritual-scientific research. The author discusses Shakespeare's life as an actor, riddles of the debate such as the enigmatic Psalm 46, and the persistent question of Francis Bacon's connection with Shakespeare.
WHY BECOME A MEMBER OF THE ANTHROPOSOPHICAL SOCIETY?
• Sergei O. Prokofieff
Why become a member of the Anthroposophical Society? Is the Anthroposophical Society needed in the modern age? The future of the Society, says Sergei O. Prokofieff, depends directly on competent replies to such questions by each and every anthroposophist.
WHY BECOME A MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL OF SPIRITUAL SCIENCE?
• Sergei O. Prokofieff
The author developed this booklet from talks that were held for members of the Anthroposophical Society. These became occasions for many to question potential membership of the First Class in a more conscious way, and for some to take the decisive step of entering the Michael School.
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.
WILLEM ZEYLMANS VAN EMMICHOVEN
An Inspiration for Anthroposophy, A Biography
• Emanuel Zeylmans
Born in Holland in 1893, Zeylmans van Emmichoven was one of the original pioneers of anthroposophy, the science of spirit established by Rudolf Steiner. As General Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society in the Netherlands, he worked closely with Steiner. A medical doctor and founder of the Rudolf Steiner Clinic in Scheveningen, he also conducted important research into the influence of colours, the psychology of peoples and nations, and individual human psychology.
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?
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.
