Broken Vessels by Rudolf Steiner

Book Description

11 lectures in Dornach, September 8-19, 1924 (CW 318)Today we hear a great deal about holistic medicine an approach to healing that integrates body, mind, and spirit. For Rudolf Steiner, healing is not possible unless it takes into account all the dimensions that make up a human being-both visible and invisible. Unless we begin to understand these dimensions of ourselves, real health will always be hard to attain. To meet inner frailty with truly adequate concepts, Steiner describes specific inner structures of both healthy and unhealthy states that escape ordinary perception. Addressing topics ranging from sleepwalking to hyperliteracy to the visions of St. Teresa of Avila, he suggests how to approach the misalignments of nonstandard inner structures and other psychic difficulties with what he calls pastoral medicine a truly holistic healing that can bring body and soul together and help them function in the most effective and powerful way. Dr. Michael Lipson s foreword provides background for Steiner s lectures and brings them into the context of modern psychology. You can see that one must recognize the spirit in nature, the spirit that is in the mineral and plant kingdoms of the world. It is the spirit, not the substance, that one must know, because in reality one heals the human being through the spirit that is in the mineral and in the plant. Rudolf Steiner Rudolf Steiner reveals something about the invisible structure of health and illness as they are seen with the second sight of spiritual research.... His comments about the opening to spiritual worlds that can accompany severe mental retardation or illness foreshadow some of the most important alternative psychiatry of our own times. He anticipates elements in the work of R.D. Laing, the Windhorse movement of Povall, and also the new practice of facilitated communication, whereby some autistic patients have been aided in expressing a full and conscious inner life to which their bizarre outward behavior gives no clue. Michael LipsonREAD A REVIEW OF THIS BOOK BY BOBBY MATHERNEThis work is a translation of "Das Zusammenwirken von Arzten und Seelsorgern" (CW 318).

Rose Cross Meditation by Rudolf Steiner Rose Cross Meditation, Paperback (May 2016)

The Rose Cross meditation is central to the western - Rosicrucian - path of personal development as presented by Rudolf Steiner. Steiner repeatedly referred to the meditation as a 'symbol of human development' that illustrates the transformation of the human being's instincts and desires.

Awakening to Community by Rudolf Steiner Awakening to Community, Paperback (May 2016)

Steiner calls for a "searching of conscience." He explains that in anthroposophic communities we can experience our first awakening to the spirit in our encounters with others, and he describes how the reversed cultus" forms the foundation for a new community life.

Electronic Doppelganger by Rudolf Steiner Electronic Doppelganger, Paperback (May 2016)

In an increasingly digitised world, where both work and play are more and more taking place online and via screens, Steiner's dramatic statements from 1917 appear prophetic. Speaking of 'intelligent machines' that would appear in the future, he presents a broad context that illustrates the multitude of challenges human beings will face.

Music by Rudolf Steiner Music, Paperback (May 2016)

What is music? Rudolf Steiner regards the essence of music as something spiritual, inaudible to the senses. The world of tones, borne on the vibrations of air, is not the essential element. 'The true nature of music, the spiritual element in music', he says, 'is found between the tones, lies in the intervals as an inaudible quality.'
