The etheric body is the aspect of our being that brings about growth and development, provides the foundation for mental picturing, and enlivens our thinking activity. Awareness of the etheric can alert a teacher to when the child will be most receptive to learning to read, for example, or to understand the abstractions of arithmetic.

This lecture was given at the Waldorf School Teacher Conference Sacramento, 1986.

He wrote numerous publications on anthroposophic medicine, including the standard work: The Anthroposophic Approach to Medicine (three volumes). During his last twenty-five years, Dr. Wolff taught anthroposophic medicine to medical doctors worldwide. He died in Arlesheim, Switzerland, in 2003.
