What is Anthroposophy?: Three Perspectives on Self-knowledge (Google eBook)
This books can change your life. Radical and thought-provoking, it shows a completely new view of what it means to be human: a spiritual being in a universe that is not just physical, but also soul and spirit. This introduction to "anthroposophy" explains why Steiner describes this path as one that "unites what is spiritual in the human being with what is spiritual in the universe." Steiner describes what happens when we die and the relationship between physical life on earth and the etheric, astral, and spiritual life of the cosmos. He shows that physical life is completely interwoven with cosmic existence, and that the "missing links" in evolution are spiritual. He discusses the superficiality and soullessness of conventional psychology; our three states of being (waking, dreaming, and sleeping) and how each is bound up with our lives as physical, psychic, and spiritual beings. With the profound insights in this book, the world becomes a much larger, richer, and more exciting place to live. Here is a concise introduction to the ideas behind the ideas behind Waldorf education.
