Description

At the heart of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual philosophy is the esoteric path of inner development that can lead to true self-transformation. In these lectures, Steiner shows how to develop certain qualities, such as clear thinking, inner tranquility, and positivity.

He describes meditative exercises and shows how it is possible to break out of the shadowy, brain-bound world of ordinary consciousness. The first step on this path of transformation is the level of Imagination where the spiritual world is seen in images.

Steiner describes how one can then attain levels of Inspiration and, finally, the highest stage, Intuition. As a highly trained clairvoyant, Steiner speaks on the basis of his own experience. In contrast to many New Age paths, his methods are based on the Western tradition -- the rosicrucian path of initiation.

This contemporary path is a metamorphosis of Eastern paths and best suited to modern conscousness.
