    BREATHING THE SPIRIT

    BREATHING THE SPIRIT

    Meditations for Times of Day and Seasons of the Year

    As a spiritual teacher Rudolf Steiner wrote many beautifully formed and inspired verses. Often they were given in relation to specific situations or in response to individual requests; sometimes they were created for general use in assisting the process of meditation. Regardless of their origins, they are uniformly powerful in their ability to connect the meditant with spiritual archetypes and realities, and are valuable tools for developing experience and knowledge of other dimensions. Matthew Barton has delicately translated these meditations into English, many for the first time, and arranged them thematically in this outstanding new series.

    CALENDAR OF THE SOUL

    CALENDAR OF THE SOUL

    Rudolf Steiner's collection of fifty-two meditative verses - presented here in both English and German - were first published in 1925, shortly after Steiner's death. These verses, representing the fifty-two weeks of the year, begin with Easter week and offer thoughts that help one find a deeper relationship with the spiritual forces at work throughout the year.

    The Year Participated

    In listening to the changing language of the year, said Rudolf Steiner, we can rediscover our individual nature. These meditative verses, one for each week of the year, help to awaken a feeling of unity with nature while simultaneously stimulating a discovery of the self. Through intensive work, Steiner's unique meditations can lead to a feeling of oneness with the world.

    WEEKLY MEDITATIONS

    WEEKLY MEDITATIONS

    Rudolf Steiner's 'Calendar of the Soul' with accompanying reflections by Patsy Scala

    When asked how one might find a way into Christianity, the Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast advised, "Meditate the sacred year". In the same vein, when asked what a lifetime's study of Anthroposophy had given him, the English philosopher Owen Barfield replied, "I now have some idea of the reality of the living year". For readers who like to chew meditatively on poetry, Weekly Meditations will put them firmly on the path to realising both of these great realities.
