16 lectures, Dornach, May 30, 1922 to Sept 22, 1923 (CW 350)

The remarkable discussions in this volume took place between Rudolf Steiner and workers at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. The audience chose the various subjects at Steiner’s instigation. As he listened to their questions, Steiner usually responded with immediate answers. The astonishing nature of these responses—their insight, knowledge and spiritual depth—is testimony to his outstanding ability as a spiritual initiate and profound thinker. Accessible, entertaining, and stimulating, the records of these sessions will be a delight to anyone with an open mind.

Topics in this collection include: dancing and sport; guardian angels; effects of the stars; potatoes, beetroots and radishes; the Druids; Roman Catholic and Masonic rituals; proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and salts; Aristotle; nutrition; blood circulation and the heart; honesty and conscience; boredom and opinions; lungs and kidneys; fertilization in plants and humans; light and color; and breathing.


From Mammoths to Mediums . . . is a complete translation from German of Rhythmen im Kosmos und im Menschenwesen: Wie kommt man zum Schauen der geistigen Welt? (GA 350). Some of these talks were previously included in Cosmic Workings in Earth and Man.
