Sun Mystery and the Mystery of Death and Resurrection by Rudolf Steiner
Book DescriptionThese lectures were given in 1922, midway between World War I and Steiner's death in 1925. They will be of particular interest to anyone wanting to comprehend Rudolf Steiner's mature understanding of his mission: 'enchristing' the world. The first two lectures constitute a call to arms or return to basics. Steiner speaks existentially and phenomenologically, building upon recognizable descriptions of actual experiences. His theme is the three states of consciousness (waking, dreaming, and dreamless sleep), and he shows how these ordinary human functions have initiatory possibilities. The next four lectures deal with the evolution of consciousness in relation to the universal significance of the Christ event. Through the resurrection, Christ's being entered earthly evolution. As a result, we see the world differently. Where ancient humanity experienced, 'Not I but the divine spirit around me', we can experience, 'Not I, but the Christ in me'. With this insight, we reach the heart of this volume - esoteric Christianity. For Rudolf Steiner, the most important task for human beings is to learn to overcome death by uniting with the Christ, who overcame death. Humanity's survival depends upon the 'enchristing' of the world. It is the purpose of anthroposophy to bring this reality into world evolution, to enable all religions and all human beings to experience the new reality. The topics include: The Three States of Night Consciousness; The Changing Experience of Breathing in the Course of History; The Inquiry and Formulation of the Cosmic Word in Breathing In and Out; The Teaching of the Risen One; The Threefold Sun and the Risen Christ; and more. Each edition in "The Collected Works of Rudolf Steiner" series contains an introduction, a relevant chronology of Rudolf Steiner's life, and an index. This volume is a translation of "Das Sonnenmysterium und das Mysterium von Tod und Auferstehung: Exoterisches und esoterisches Christentum".

Life of the Human Soul, Paperback (November 2016)
How are we connected to the world around us? This question, says Rudolf Steiner, is one that lives subliminally, drawing us into the depths of the psyche. There, our candle of consciousness tends to flicker and go out. But spiritual schooling can relight it, so that we learn to perceive realms of our being beyond the restricted self.
Initiation Science, Paperback (November 2016)
In an astonishing series of lectures on the science of spiritual knowledge, Rudolf Steiner begins by addressing an audience in Dornach, Switzerland - where, only months earlier, his architectural masterpiece, the first Goetheanum, had been destroyed by fire.
Our Connection with the Elemental World, Paperback (November 2016)
The heart of this volume comprises Rudolf Steiner's commentary on the elemental forces that are responsible for our earthly nature as human beings - forces that influence us through our membership of a national or geographical group. When such elemental forces are not recognised and understood, he states, they cause conflict and chaos.

Author Biography - Rudolf Steiner
RUDOLF STEINER (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', meaning 'wisdom of the human being'. As a highly developed seer, he based his work on direct knowledge and perception of spiritual dimensions. He initiated a modern and universal 'science of spirit', accessible to anyone willing to exercise clear and unprejudiced thinking. From his spiritual investigations Steiner provided suggestions for the renewal of many activities, including education (both general and special), agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. Today there are thousands of schools, clinics, farms and other organizations involved in practical work based on his principles. His many published works feature his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development. Steiner wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6,000 lectures across Europe. In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world.
