              It is not the author's concern to persuade the reader in an outward way to join the Anthroposophical Society. He is concerned with the communication of a few esoteric viewpoints and possible motives, so that the decision in this regard can develop in a fully aware and responsible... manner, based on a solid inner cognitive foundation. For only when the decision in regard to membership in the Anthroposophical Societyfor whatever reason the individual might make itoccurs on such a basis, does it also have spiritual justification (from the preface).

              A great reference book on how the teacher and the doctor can work together to foster good health from birth through the teen years. The contributions to this book are from school physicians, who point in the direction suggested by Rudolf Steiner, while modern research into saluto...genesis and resilience has provided validation and corroboration for those ideas. Salutogenesis means inquiry into the origin of health. This thinking and approach represents a new paradigm and direction for research. How and when something is taught affects the student's lifelong disposition toward health or illness. The Waldorf curriculum is based on an understanding of the development and physiology of children, and healthy development of the physical body is the basis for healthy development of their soul-spiritual individuality. This suggests that it is of great importance for doctors and teachers to work together.

              These are perhaps Steiner's most exciting lectures on the fundamentals of social renewal. Among the themes he considers are spiritual science as a knowledge of action; the twelve senses of the human being in their relation to Imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition; the science o...f initiation and the impulse for freedom; and viewpoints on the forming of healthy social judgments. This volume provides a wealth of inspiration showing that healing will come to social life when the inner mobility of soul acquired through spiritual science is allowed to mold new social forms.

              Anthroposophy and the Philosophy of Freedom: Anthroposophy and Its Method of Cognition, the Christological and Cosmic-human Dimension of the Philosophy of Freedom

              Anthroposophy and the Philosophy of Freedom: Anthroposophy and Its Method of Cognition, the Christological and Cosmic-human Dimension of the Philosophy of Freedom (Paperback)

              Some people's path to anthroposophy leads them directly to Rudolf Steiner's early work and The Philosophy of Freedom, and this becomes the philosophical basis for their future exploration. Rudolf Steiner referred to this as a 'safe' approach.But many people's destiny leads them d...irectly to anthroposophy itself, or via one of its practical initiatives, making it difficult sometimes for them to relate to the cognitive basis of anthroposophy. In this unique study Sergei O. Prokofieff offers fresh means of access to Rudolf Steiner's crucially important book, The Philosophy of Freedom. Prokofieff indicates why The Philosophy of Freedom is so important to anthroposophy. It is here that Rudolf Steiner lays the foundations for his method of research. In Steiner's own words: One who is willing can indeed find the basic principles of anthroposophy in my Philosophy of Freedom . Prokofieff discusses the Christian nature of the anthroposophical method of cognition, and how it is integrally related to freedom and love. This in turn reveals the deeply Christian roots of The Philosophy of Freedom and its importance for modern Christian esotericism. In fact, says Prokofieff, the book holds a 'central position ...in the spiritual history of the Occident'. In considering its multifaceted 'cosmic-human dimension', the author discusses The Philosophy of Freedom in relation to the Mystery of the Resurrection, the Working of the Hierarchies, the Being Anthroposophia, the Fifth Gospel, Rudolf Steiner's Path of Initiation, the Rosicrucian and Michaelic Impulses, the Life Between Death and Rebirth, the Foundation Stone, the Christian Mysteries of Karma and the Science of the Grail.

              May Human Beings Hear It!: The Mystery of the Christmas Conference

              May Human Beings Hear It!: The Mystery of the Christmas Conference (Paperback, New edition)

              'It depends on the human being whether he merely conceives of anthroposophy or whether he experiences it.' - Rudolf Steiner During the Christmas period of 1923-4, Rudolf Steiner refounded the Anthroposophical Society at its headquarters in Dornach, Switzerland. This important eve...nt, which has come to be known as the Christmas Conference, can be studied on many levels, and its many mysteries have been central to Sergei O. Prokofieff's anthroposophical research over the years. His beginning point has been an enduring question: What did Rudolf Steiner mean when he called the Christmas Conference the 'start of a World-Turning-point of Time'? In this far-reaching work, the author - working from several different viewpoints - guides the reader towards an answer. Prokofieff suggests that the impulse of the Christmas Conference can only be reenlivened today through conscious action by individuals to experience its spiritual essence. Rather than offering dogmatic conclusions, he opens up paths of approaching this goal by throwing light on different aspects of the Conference and what lies at its heart: the Foundation Stone and its Meditation. In particular, Prokofieff explores three key perspectives: the connection of the Christmas Conference with humanity's evolution; the inner relationship of each individual anthroposophist to the Christmas Conference; and the significance of the Conference to Rudolf Steiner himself. Although this is major work of some length, the individual chapters of May Human Beings Hear It! are complete in themselves, and can therefore be studied independently of each other.

              Prokofieff's thoughtful commentary sheds new light on the connection between Rudolf Steiner's early work and what he developed later in life. Study of the relevant texts reveals that the roots of Steiner's early work lie in the same spiritual reality the Christ impulse as that of... the later Anthroposophy he would develop.

Since then we have been living in an increasingly spiritual world on a disintegrating, dying earth. We have simply been asl...eep to this spiritual reality around us.
