The extraordinary life of Rudolf Steiner and his undoubted powers of clairvoyance are an example of how the mind of a modern man can develop knowledge which covers the whole field of the wisdom both of the Ancient Mysteries and also of modern science. There is no exaggeration in such a statement, for Rudolf Steiner was able to answer questions in mathematics, physics, chemistry, geology, astronomy, medicine, botany, zoology, anthropology, economics, theology, history of philosophy, world-history.

Throughout many years of close co-operation with him I was able to observe this unique phenomenon. Between the years 1919 and 1924 I met Rudolf Steiner at many conferences with the sixty-four teachers of one of the largest private schools in Germany, the Waldorf School at Stuttgart, where more than a thousand children were being educated according to the principles inaugurated by him. At these conferences he was asked all kinds of questions, about methods of teaching in general, about problems of education and the training of the characters of children between the ages of 6 and 18. His opinions were asked about the merits of text-books dealing with all the sciences, or, for example, about which particular theory should form the basis for teaching some particular branch of science. In all these meetings there was a lively development and interchange of ideas on every subject of the school curriculum, from higher mathematics and the sciences to such subjects as music (both theoretical and practical) and gymnastics. To watch Rudolf Steiner dealing with experts in all these subjects, helping and correcting them in his simple, kindly way and going to the root of every problem, was to realize his scientific and human greatness. 33 pages.

Walter Johannes Stein (1891-1957) as a young man became a pupil of Rudolf Steiner, who asked him to teach German literature and history at the first Waldorf school in Stuttgart, Germany, even though his education had been in philosophy, mathematics and physics. He made a deep study of the Parzival story, lectured extensively on this topic, and wrote The Ninth Century and the Holy Grail.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
