spacer SCHOOL OF SPIRITUAL SCIENCE, THE
spacer

An Orientation and Introduction

• Johannes Kühl, Bodo von Plato, et al.

spacer
spacer

In 1924 Rudolf Steiner established the School of Spiritual Science within the framework of the newly refounded Anthroposophical Society. This volume represents a first attempt at describing the character, intentions and working methods of this pioneering School, and its place within modern cultural life. It describes the School's three prerequisites for membership and studies its connection with the Anthroposophical Society and movement. It also examines the role of its 'First Class' in relation to Rudolf Steiner's original intentions, and the responsibilities of its representatives.

spacer SCIENCE BETWEEN SPACE AND COUNTERSPACE
spacer

Exploring the Significance of Negative Space

• Nick Thomas

spacer
spacer

The scientist and philosopher Rudolf Steiner discovered that besides 'ordinary' space there is 'negative' space, or 'counterspace', which relates to a holistic conception of the world. Steiner suggested that it was important to understand counterspace as a necessary supplement to the conventional approach. His colleague George Adams found a way of describing counterspace through mathematics.

spacer SECRETS OF ESOTERIC CHRISTIANITY
spacer

The Two Marys, the Two Families of Jesus, and the Incarnation of Christ

• Gilbert Childs

spacer
spacer

For many years theologians have agonized over the contradictory accounts of the birth of Jesus as given in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew. How can they be reconciled, given their utterly different nature and contents? Demonstrating a remarkably erudite approach and authoritative knowledge of biblical sources and other primary texts, Gilbert Childs throws new light on arcane disputes by revealing some of the secrets of esoteric Christianity - in particular the mystery of the two Marys and the two families of Jesus. Such secrets, including the meaning of the 'virginal conception', have lain hidden and protected in Mystery Centres and by initiates over the ages, although in modern times they can be spoken of openly.

The Mystery of Transformation

• Judith von Halle

spacer
spacer

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...

spacer SEXUALITY, PARTNERSHIP AND MARRIAGE
spacer

from a Spiritual Perspective

• Wolfgang Gädeke

spacer
spacer

Sexuality, partnership and marriage present us with some of the most difficult challenges and questions of our time. With society's attitudes in constant flux, some of these questions appear to be almost unanswerable. What is a healthy relationship? What role should a partner - whether male or female - play? How should sexuality play into a relationship? Are marriage and monogamy still relevant in the twenty-first century?

spacer SOPHIA MYSTERY IN OUR TIME, THE
spacer

The Birth of Imagination

• Mario Betti

spacer
spacer

"The confrontation with evil manifests as a battle taking place on many levels, the outcome of which lies in the hands of each one of us alive today. The most important requisite is the creating of a space within us in which a new consciousness, the Imagination, will gradually be able to arise. Much in the future depends on whether a sufficient number of people succeed in reaching this level of experience..." - Maria Betti

The Occult Significance of the 12 Years 1933-45 in the Light of Spiritual Science

• Jesaiah Ben-Aharon

spacer
spacer

Utilizing spiritual-scientific research methods, Jesaiah Ben-Aharon gives an astonishing first-hand testimony of Rudolf Steiner's declarations regarding the new Christ Revelation, and offers his own findings on the Spiritual Event of the Twentieth Century. Based on occult Imaginative consciousness, he gives a unique account of events which took place in the spiritual world during the war and turmoil on earth in the period 1933-45. His words have a particular significance for an understanding of the work of the grouping of souls which the seer and spiritual teacher Rudolf Steiner called the 'Michael School'.

spacer SPIRITUAL FOUNDATIONS OF BEEKEEPING, THE
spacer

• Iwer Thor Lorenzen

spacer
spacer

The honey bee has lived in close association with human beings for millennia. Tragically, however, humanity’s once intimate connection with this unique creature has been harmed by our increasingly utilitarian and exploitative dealings with the natural world. We are now in urgent need of re-establishing a deeper relationship, not just for the sake of the bees themselves but for the whole of nature – and of course for ourselves.

And the Future Mysteries of the Holy Grail

• Sergei 0. Prokofieff

spacer
spacer

This momentous work, breathtaking in its scope and detail, reveals the deeper causes of Eastern Europe's turbulent past, and exposes the attempts to subvert the true destiny of the East-Slavic people by materialistic western Brotherhoods, Jesuits, and the occult stream of Bolshevism. Genuine, first-rate, spiritual-scientific research.

spacer

• Sergei O. Prokofieff

spacer
spacer

‘And however paradoxical it may seem today, the “Grail mood” is in the fullest sense to be found in Russia. And the future role that Russia will play in the sixth post-Atlantean epoch... rests firmly upon this unconquerable “Grail mood” in the Russian people.’ – Rudolf Steiner

Transforming Evil, Meeting the Other, and Awakening to the Global Initiation of Humanity

• Yeshayahu Ben-Aharon

spacer
spacer

With love, humour and brilliant insight, Ben-Aharon addresses some of the most critical questions of our age, ranging from artificial intelligence and global politics to education and postmodern philosophy. Although tackling diverse subject-matter, this accessible anthology – delivered initially as lectures in locations as contrasting as New York, Oslo and Munich – features a coherent inner rhythm. With his lively and intense presentation, the speaker invites us to share and participate in the creative process and the dynamic activity of incarnating new ideas – indeed, to awaken to the very Spirit of our Time.

spacer

Intellectuality Versus Anthroposophy

• Pietro Archiati

spacer
spacer

Can there be such a thing as spiritual science today? Should faith and spirit remain as purely private concerns – or, as traditionally, preserves of the Church? When Rudolf Steiner founded anthroposophy in the early twentieth century, his intention was to create a fundamentally scientific approach to the spirit. His basic works detail methods for developing spiritual consciousness, allowing the individual to replicate the results of his research. This key aspect distinguishes anthroposophy from the wealth of spiritual teachings, sects, cults and religions within the modern cultural milieu. But did Steiner fail in his endeavour to build a scientific path to spiritual knowledge? Is anthroposophy just another ‘theory’ based on intellectual thought, to be analysed and dismissed?

Understanding Children who set us Special Tasks and Challenges

• Georg Kühlewind

spacer
spacer

"While working on this book the following happened to me: As I checked in at the airport in Hamburg a young couple was in front of me, and the mother had a three-to-four-month old baby in her arms. All of a sudden the baby turned round, looked me straight in the eye, and I was deeply shaken; for that was not the look of a baby but of a very self-aware adult, a wise one, and he appeared to see right through me..."

spacer STIGMATA, THE
spacer

Destiny as a Question of Knowledge

• Peter Tradowsky

spacer
spacer

Stigmata - the spontaneous appearance of bodily marks in locations corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ - have long been a controversial phenomenon. Former well-known stigmatics, such as Saint Francis of Assisi, Anne Catherine Emmerich and Therese Neumann, have mostly been associated with the Catholic Church. Judith von Halle however, who received the stigmata at Passiontide in 2004, is a member of the Anthroposophical Society, and has to date published a dozen notable volumes of spiritual-scientific research.

spacer STORY OF EMERSON COLLEGE, THE
spacer

Its Founding Impulse, Work and Form

• Michael Spence

spacer
spacer

"Emerson was really a working together - a sum total of all the life's paths, the working of karma and the fulfilling of pre-birth impulses and intentions of so many people, both staff and students. Every person who came to Emerson in some way touched it and changed it. Each year had its own biography. It was never an institution to which people came and passed through without leaving any mark on it." - Michael Spence

Spiritual Paths of the Middle Ages

• Virginia Sease • Manfred Schmidt-Brabant

spacer
spacer

Whether souls have returned in physical incarnations as Platonists, as Aristotelians, as pupils of Chartres, as members of the Dominican Order, as Templars, as Cathars, or whether these souls accompany us as spiritual beings, a stream of spiritual continuity that begins in the Middle Ages flows through human history.

spacer THREEFOLD NATURE OF DESTINY LEARNING
spacer

• Coenraad van Houten

spacer
spacer

'Destiny Learning', a path of adult education conceived and developed by Coenraad van Houten (based on the work of Rudolf Steiner), is here expanded to show a threefold way of working with karma: understanding, transforming and ordering. This threefold approach opens new vistas for healing relationships and conflicts, for developing creative faculties for community building, and for taking initiatives based on freedom. The author widens and deepens his previous work on the theme, showing that learning from destiny, as well as awakening the forces of will, are ongoing processes. He offers practical advice that is directly applicable to everyday life.

Written in the years immediately following the Second World War, this brief booklet is a powerful meditation on evil and its eventual transformation. Focusing on the realm of 'sub-nature' or 'the subterranean spheres', Gleich shows how the various layers of the earth's interior are intimately linked with the mystery of evil.

Individuals, groups and organizations find themselves in a process of continual change, transformation and growth. Margarete van den Brink suggests all people, whether individually or in groups, experience the same archetypal process of development, consisting of seven steps. Giving practical examples, she describes how these steps or phases can be recognized in individuals, in relationships and groups, and even in commercial and voluntary organizations. A knowledge of the various steps allows for clarity and vision, helping to prepare for the sorts of challenges and rewards we might face.

Ancient and Modern Spiritual Paths and the Mystery of Rennes-le-Château

• Sylvia Francke

spacer
spacer

Recent works of fiction and popular history have promoted the idea that the Holy Grail symbolizes a physical bloodline resulting from the union of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. This, supposedly, is the 'secret' that esoteric movements have kept tirelessly for the past 2,000 years. From her groundbreaking research, Sylvia Francke exposes this notion to be a blatant misinterpretation of the mystery traditions that preceded and ran parallel to the birth of Christianity. She traces the ancient spiritual paths of knowledge from the Cathars, the Knights Templar and the enigmatic Rosicrucians, to the work of Rudolf Steiner in the twentieth century. Here, she concludes, is true Grail knowledge: the Tree of Life and the Holy Grail itself explained in their metaphysical context. From her research she suggests a solution to the riddle of the sudden wealth and strange behaviour of Bérenger Saunière, the mysterious priest of Rennes-le-Château in southern France.

and Other Stories

• Brien Masters

spacer
spacer

Following on from his popular first reader Patter-Paws the Fox, Brien Masters presents us with twelve further stories for school children. This time, however, his exuberant tales are related more closely to the modern, urban experience of the town-dweller. We are introduced to many new and delightful characters, both animal and human, such as Rory the guide-dog and his master Scotty, Trevor the puzzled postman, Wriggly-Caterpillar, and Fudge-fed Bee. Once again, the narratives are complemented by the inspiring illustrations of Brian Gold.

Steiner-Waldorf Education as a Demand of Our Time

An Esoteric Study

• Dr Gilbert Childs

spacer
spacer

Rudolf Steiner argued that the primary function of education is to exercise pupils' faculties of thinking, feeling and willing. These basic human qualities manifest in civilization as the "eternal verities" of truth, beauty and goodness, and these in turn in science, art and religion.

spacer
spacer TWELVE HOLY NIGHTS AND THE SPIRITUAL HIERARCHIES
spacer

• Sergei O. Prokofieff

spacer
spacer

Prokofieff draws on the whole extent of Rudolf Steiner's work and combines it with his own original spiritual research to form an intricate picture of the cosmic forces at play between Christmas and Epiphany. We are led on a tour through the circle of the zodiac and spiritual hierarchies, and shown how they form a path from Jesus to Christ. The author further explains that the Starry Script is a key to anthroposophical Christology, and shows how it relates to the conception of the First Goetheanum. Prokofieff guides us imaginatively through the interior of Steiner's architectural masterpiece, destroyed by fire in 1922, whose structure and decorations are seen to constitute a coherent esoteric map. Our task now, he suggests, is to build the First Goetheanum in ourselves and, through a new schooling of the self, strive for a truly modern path of initiation. Supplementary essays focus on the cosmic aspects of Sophia as well as the being of Michael.

Thoughts on Old Age, Death and Dying

• Almut Bockemühl

spacer
spacer

‘Growing old is a constant battle... One has the experience of being squeezed out of one’s bodily home, and one sets out to protect oneself against it, and holds on to what one can.... But when we make an effort to grow old in the right way, which means transforming what is earthly into what is spiritual, we are working at the transubstantiation of the earth.’
