Life beyond Death - Rudolf Steiner - lectures on the soul's journey beween death and rebirthLife beyond Death
13 selected lectures by Rudolf Steiner

Although western humanity has conquered the outer world with the aid of technology and science, death remains an unsolved and largely unexplored mystery. Rudolf Steiner, a modern day initiate and seer of exceptional ability, was able to research this fundamental problem of what happens to human consciousness after the physical body passes away. In these lectures, based on his own direct perceptions, Steiner affirms that life continues beyond death. Far from being extinguished, the individual's consciousness awakens to a new mode of reality, and begins a great journey to the farthest expanses of the spiritual cosmos in the company of, and in exchange with, ascending ranks of  spiritual Beings, before ultimately returning, renewed and transformed, to a new physical incarnation.

Rudolf Steiner also indicates that one of the most important tasks for our present civilization is the re-establishment of living connections with those who have died. He gives suggestions as to how this can be done without falling into the illusions of spiritualism and séances, and describes how the dead can be of help to those on earth.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', which he defined as 'the consciousness of one's humanity', and the disciplined methods of studying this he termed ‘spiritual science’.  As a highly developed clairvoyant and spiritual initiate, he spoke from his direct cognition of the spiritual world. However, he did not see his work as religious or sectarian, but rather sought to found a universal 'science of the spirit'.

His many published works (written books and lectures) - which include his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development - invite readers to develop their own spiritual faculties.  He also provided indications for the renewal of many human activities, including education - both general and special - agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. He wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe, and in 1924 founded the General Anthroposophical Society which today has branches throughout the world.
