The Temple Legend: Freemasonry and Related Occult Movements: From the Contents of the Esoteric School. 20 lectures, Berlin, May to Jan. 1906 (CW 93)
In these unique lectures, given to members of his Esoteric School (1904-14), Rudolf Steiner throws light on the hidden content of the pictorial language of myths, sagas, and legends. Pictures, he explains, are the true origin of all things -- the primeval spiritual causes. In the ancient past, people assimilated these pictures through myths and legends. In order to work in a healthy way with pictures or symbols today, however, it is necessary to first become acquainted with their esoteric essence -- to understand them.
At the time of these lectures, Steiner was planning to inaugurate the second section of the Esoteric School, which would deal directly with a renewal -- based on his spiritual research -- of ritual and symbolism. He gave these lectures as a necessary preparation to clarify the history and nature of the ritual traditions. He thus discusses principally Freemasonry and its background, but also the Rosicrucians, Manicheism, the Druids, the Prometheus Saga, the Lost Temple, Cain and Able, and much more.
This series of lectures provides real insight into the esoteric language that Steiner used, particularly during the earlier years of his teaching.

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.

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...
The Voynich Manuscript
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...More
