Earthly and Cosmic Laws
5 lectures by Rudolf Steiner
In these five lectures, Rudolf
Steiner offers a variety of therapeutic insights which relate our
organs and their functions to cosmic processes which they mirror. He
looks at how the ancient Greek perceived our constitution in terms
of the four elements: earth, water, air and fire and the therapeutic
relevance of this outlook, as well as various psychological
abnormalities and their organic origins.
Here we are offered a view of our
bodily nature, not simply as a mechanistic
curiously has a conscious element associated with it, but as an
expression of spiritual causes, as well as the subsequent cause of
soul effects in the current life time and formative effects

Therapeutic Insights - Earthly and Cosmic Laws -
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called
his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', meaning 'wisdom of the
human being'. As a highly developed seer, he based his work on
direct knowledge and perception of spiritual dimensions. He
initiated a modern and universal 'science of spirit', accessible to
anyone willing to exercise clear and unprejudiced thinking.
From his spiritual investigations
Steiner provided suggestions for the renewal of many activities,
including education (both general and special), agriculture,
medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and
the arts. Today there are literally thousands of schools, clinics,
farms and other organizations involved in practical work based on
his principles. His many published works feature his research into
the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world
and humanity, and methods of personal development. Steiner wrote
some 30 books and delivered over 6,000 lectures across Europe. In
1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today
has branches throughout the world.
