              Following Rudolf Steiner's death, the mysteries cannot be revealed further at the present time, but we must continue to cultivate a living, not only rational but also ritual, continuity of the mystery contents he has given, passing them to people who did not know Rudolf Steiner a...nd yet seek to connect with him esoterically and not just intellectually. -Ludwig Count Polzer-Hoditz Since Rudolf Steiner's death in 1925, little has been written about the First Class of the School for Spiritual Science in Dornach. The Class continues as an esoteric institution in the hearts of its disciples and in the mantras and meditations. This meditative work is hidden from view, yet, behind the scenes, it lives on in the inner striving for development of soul and spirit that is part of any mystery school. Rudolf Steiner himself guarded the content of the Class Lessons strictly, only intimating to members of the General Society that his esoteric school existed and how it worked. In this book, Peter Selg provides a context for the reading of the Class Lessons, the School for Spiritual Science itself, as well as for Rudolf Steiner's intentions for such an esoteric undertaking. The School for Spiritual Science was the work of an initiate, and through the esoteric collaboration of Rudolf Steiner and those who worked with him a Christian mystery center began to unfold. But Steiner's aim has not yet been achieved. Intense work is still needed for its realization-unwavering efforts with awareness of the foundations Rudolf Steiner laid down and consciousness of the mystery dimension of the endeavor. As an aspect of that wider mystery dimension, Peter Selg also looks back to Ita Wegman as Rudolf Steiner's helper in the First Class. He seeks to leave behind the conflicts of the 1920s and 1930s as Ita Wegman herself left them behind her. As Ita Wegman said, For me the matter is settled. There are so many misunderstandings that I consider it better to leave things well alone. We all thought we we

              The Path of the Soul After Death: The Community of the Living and the Dead as Witnessed by Rudolf Steiner in His Eulogies and Farewell Addresses (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              We are separated from the spiritual worlds only by states of consciousness, not by spatial circumstances. States of consciousness are what separate us. Rudolf SteinerRudolf Steiner saw relationships with the dead as the religious attitude of the future in the highest sense. Becom...ing comfortable with thinking and speaking of the dead as concretely as we speak of the living will profoundly affect human activity. To Steiner, the enlivening and even the sanctification of earthly existence are not merely connected directly with our relationship to death and to the deceased; in fact, that relationship deepens these qualities and makes them possible. Steiner spoke frequently about death and the human soul s continued existence, as well as about the importance of establishing a new kind of community that unites spiritually active human souls that endure beyond death. The Path of the Soul after Death shows how Rudolf Steiner commemorated the dead, the words he chose to use, and his descriptions sometimes in great detail of the inner processes involved. What becomes clear is the extent to which his connections to the deceased shaped his addresses and related to their new stage of existence. Inasmuch as his words were in harmony with human soul development after death, they not only recapitulated a biography but also assisted the deceased individual along the path after death.We cannot understand the true depth and meaning of Steiner s words about those who have died except against the background of an anthropological study of the period immediately after death. The second part of the book, therefore, is a stunningly clear and detailed account of anthroposophic research into the process of dying and the soul s path after death. He tells us: The phenomenon of death sets in like this: In the moment of death, the connection of the etheric and astral bodies to the physical bodies dissolves specifically, in the heart. The heart is illuminated, so to speak, and then the ether body,

              Rudolf Steiner and Christian Rosenkreutz

              Only in our time has it become possible once again to unlock the sources of Rosicrucian wisdom and allow them to flow into the whole of culture... Christian Rosenkreutz has always lived among us and he is with us today too as the guide of spiritual life.... The spiritual stream r...elated to Christian Rosenkreutz offers the most potent assistance to those who strive to understand the Christ impulse. -Rudolf Steiner Rudolf Steiner spoke often of the relationship of Anthroposophy or Spiritual Science to Rosicrucianism, but he spoke less of the being of Christian Rosenkreutz himself. As he said, To speak of Christian Rosenkreutz presumes a profound trust in the mysteries of the life of the spirit-a trust or faith not in the person of Christian Rosenkreutz, but in the mysteries of spiritual life. For Steiner, Christian Rosenkreutz was active in at least three ways. First, as one of the great leaders of humanity, he worked to bring esoteric spirituality into the modern world and to lead it into the future. Second, as the greatest teacher of Christianity he worked to bring to humanity true heart knowledge of Christ through the continued unveiling of the Mystery of Golgotha in the etheric. Third, as a concrete, particular individual being, Steiner had a living, actual, personal relationship with him. As such, because of our failure to understand, Steiner called him a noble martyr...who, through his way of working, endured, and will in future endure, more than any other person. I say 'person, ' for the suffering of Christ was the suffering of a god. In the first part of this inspiring book-a work of devotion both to Rudolf Steiner and to Christian Rosenkreutz-Peter Selg, as The Great Servant of Christ Jesus, gives a detailed, chronological, and fascinating account of Steiner's portrayal and, as much as possible, experiences of Christian Rosenkreutz. He shows how Steiner had essentially two teachers: the Master Jesus (Zoroaster) and Christian Rosenkreutz. Moreover, Selg shows h
