of the Soul
The Year Participated
52 meditative verses by Rudolf Steiner
Calendar of the Soul - meditations by Rudolf Steiner: In
listening and sensing the inner language of nature in the
course of a year, we can rediscover something of our essential
human nature; for we as human beings are intimately related to
all that goes on within the spiritual forces behind the
changing face of nature and take part, albeit unconsciously,
in these inner changes throughout the course of the year. These meditative verses, one for each
week of the year, help to awaken a feeling of ourselves within
nature, and through this not only stimulating a sensitivity to
the inner qualities of nature but also awakening a fundamental awareness
of our self.
budget-priced pocket version features Owen Barfield's
pioneering translation -'paraphrased for an English ear' -
based on more than 50 years of studying the text. As Barfield
argues, no simple translation can convey the 'thrust' of the
verses. In his words: 'It is this quality which the version
that follows especially aims to suggest - at the expense,
where necessary, of close reproduction.'
edition is offered in a convenient pocket size
format which fits easily in a handbag or breast pocket.
