Theosophy by Rudolph Steiner

Theosophy is a key work for anyone seeking a solid grounding in spiritual reality. Steiner presents a comprehensive understanding of human nature, beginning with the physical body and moving up through the soul to our spiritual being, with an extraordinary overview of the laws of reincarnation and the workings of karma. Steiner shows the different ways that we live within the three worlds of body, soul, and spirit, and describes the path of knowledge by which each one of us can begin to understand the marvelous and harmonious complexity of the psycho-spiritual worlds.

Intuitive Thinking As A Spiritual Path: A Philosophy Of Freedom

Review: Of all of Rudolf Steiner's works, this is the one he believed would have the longest life and the greatest spiritual and cultural consequences. It was written a century ago as a phenomenological account of the "results of observing the human soul accordint to the methods of natural science." It asserts that we can learn to experience free spiritual activity, the human ability to think intuitively, independent of physical nature, which is indeed the appropriate spiritual path for today.

Anthroposophical Leading Thoughts: Anthroposophy As A Path Of Knowledge

Description: A distillation of Rudolf Steiner's spiritual teachings.

This key book contains Rudolf Steiner's "leading thoughts" (written just before he died in 1925), which provide an overview of his life's teaching. These brief paragraphs succinctly present Steiner's science of the spirit - anthroposophy - as a modern path of knowledge.

Steiner begins by describing our experience as physical and spiritual human beings and how we can development a more conscious relationship to the physical and spirit realms. He speaks of life and death and karma, and about how we can act with greater awareness of the realities that lie beyond the physical senses. Finally, he speaks of where we are today as spiritual human beings and the nature of our tasks for the future.

Ancient Myths

The connections between ancient and modern consciousness.

In these lectures, Steiner looks at the Egyptian, Greek, and Hebrew myths and illustrates how the myths expressed the consciousness of the people of that time. He sees in the Osiris-Isis story an expression of the loss of a direct experience of the supersensible world. He shows the connection between this loss and the challenge we face today to bring new life to our abstract ways of knowing.

Steiner then offers a remarkable story, a new Isis legend. In the Egyptian myth the veiled Isis states, "I am the All, I am the Past, the Present, and the Future; no mortal has yet lifted my veil." In the New Isis legend as told by Rudolf Steiner, the Isis figure states, "I am the Human Being, I am the Past, the Present, and the Future. Every mortal should lift my veil." This extraordinary story is a challenge to modern humanity to awaken to a new consciousness of the spiritual forces at work in our lives and in society, and to bear this new spirit within us with ever greater understanding and a sense of responsibility.

The Foundations of the Human Experience

This lecture course contains some of the most remarkable and significant talks ever given by Rudolf Steiner. Though presented to teachers, they are a valuable source of wisdom for anyone, including parents, psychologists, and counselors who need a better understanding of the needs and essence of the whole child.

Further, Because Steiner presents here his most concise and detailed account of our essential human nature, these talks are absolutely fundamental to understanding Steiner's spiritual science, or anthroposophy. Anyone willing to work through this important text will discover a new, powerful, convincing, and profoundly phenomenological "anthropology" and a truly human spiritual psychology. And those interested in Waldorf education will find this to be the primary text. Here, for first time, Steiner laid out the principles upon which the art of teaching has been renewed.
