AT THE DAWN OF A NEW CONSCIOUSNESS
Art, Philosophy and the Birth of the Modern World
• Bernard Nesfield-Cookson
The Italian Renaissance is considered by many to mark the beginning of the modern age, the name itself - literally meaning 'rebirth' - accurately expressing the innovation that took place during this period. Renaissance thinkers took a vital interest in history, literature and the arts, focusing on the human world as much as, if not more than, that of God; and the rapid development of the arts and sciences reflected their study of the visible, physical world in all its three-dimensional glory.
ATLAS OF THE POETIC CONTINENT
Pathways in Ecological Citizenship
• Shelley Sacks • Wolfgang Zumdick
"The places of the poetic continent are not physical places. They map the internal regions and contours of the inner human being that lives in a cosmos of other beings and life forms. They constellate the places of the soul."

BAREFOOT THROUGH BURNING LAVA
On Sicily, the Island of Cain – An Esoteric Travelogue
• T. H. Meyer
Drawn by the mysterious mount Etna, Thomas Meyer sets off on a quest to discover the secrets of the Mediterranean islands of Sicily and Stromboli. The Sicilian region is not only famous for the drama of its live volcanoes, but also for its associations with numerous cultural figures – ranging from Cain, Empedocles, Klingsor and the much maligned Cagliostro, through to Goethe and Rudolf Steiner. The author ponders their lives, work and karmic connections, whilst unexpected meetings with cryptic strangers result in discussions that are filled with spiritual insights and pearls of wisdom.

Moral Technique and Etheric Technology - Apocalyptic Symptoms

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.

BETWEEN EARTH AND HEAVEN
The Actor of the Future, Vol. 3
• Dawn Langman
In this third volume in The Actor of the Future series, Dawn Langman continues to explore the integration of Steiner’s research into speech, drama and eurythmy with Michael Chekhov’s acting methodology. Her advanced applications of all the basic processes allow the art of the actor and speaker to evolve beyond the ‘soul and body’ paradigm – still broadly accepted in contemporary culture – to include dimensions of the spirit. The book contains a seminal analysis of comedy and tragedy, showing how an understanding of their esoteric roots – sprung from the Eleusis mysteries of ancient Greece – deepen our appreciation and our ability to implement the practical suggestions made by Steiner and Chekhov to differentiate the fundamental styles. A comprehensive exploration of the vowels in relation to planetary beings lays the foundation for many layers of artistic deepening and application.

BIRTH OF A NEW AGRICULTURE, THE
Koberwitz 1924 and the Introduction of Biodynamics
• Compiled and edited by Adalbert Graf von Keyserlingk
In 1924 at Koberwitz, the estate of Count and Countess Keyserlingk, Rudolf Steiner gave a key course of lectures on agriculture. At a time when industrial methods were being introduced into farming, Steiner had a radically different, evolutionary, vision. Based on a revitalized relationship with nature, his approach encompassed knowledge of the cosmos, the elemental world and the earth, and utilized special planting methods and preparations. Today his biodynamic agriculture is widely valued and used around the world.
BODHISATTVA QUESTION, THE
Krishnamurti, Rudolf Steiner, Valentin Tomberg, and the Mystery of the Twentieth-Century Master
with new Foreword and Afterword by T.H. Meyer
• T.H. Meyer
'Enthusiastic readers are sometimes heard to say of a book: "I couldn't put it down" This is obviously either a metaphor or else a gross hyperbole. But I can't recall any book as to which in my case it came nearer to the literal truth than The Bodhisattva Question.' - Owen Barfield

‘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)
