Today's understanding of nutrition is based largely on physical, chemical considerations and analysis. Hauschka takes a radically different approach, viewing matter--and food in particular--as having a spiritual aspect. From this holistic perspective he presents a new, practical approach to nutrition. This classic work is the result of Dr Hauschka's many years of research at the Ita Wegman Clinic in Arlesheim, Switzerland. Through active experimentation, Hauschka found fresh insight into the principles of digestion, which enabled him to evolve a system of nutrition suitable for the present day. In an age of mass food production, Hauschka considers one of the most neglected aspects of nutrition--food quality. He discusses aspects of food that can be measured by conventional scientific means, as well as aspects that defy quantification by the usual methods. He relates these findings to a historical survey of food cultivation, preparation, and preservation, as well as to the question of today's chemically treated foods. In the present climate of food scares and concerns--BSE, foot and mouth disease, genetic modification, chemical poisoning, etc--Hauschka's book takes on a new relevance, adding a significant contribution to the current debate. Also included are concise dietary suggestions by Dr Margarethe Hauschka for healthy as well as sick people. This book is a companion volume to the author's other work, The Nature of Substance.
Throughout the ages, people have given the fairy kingdom various names. To some it was Paradise, to others Tir-nan-Og, Avalon, Country Underneath the Sea, Fairy Land, World of Immortal Youth, Land of Heart's Desire, Land of Life, or the Middle Kingdom. Fairy tales - the stories of this kingdom - are not only folk literature but also accounts of the subtler layers of fact clothed in poetic imagery. Rudolf Steiner was a close observer of the fairy kingdom and gave many lectures that describe the work of its inhabitants, whom he called elementals. It was clear to Steiner that these elementals were of great importance to the Earth, charged not only with the maintenance of Nature's household, but also with her evolutionary plans. He also spoke of how vital it is that we get to know these fairy workers and honor the work they do, so that their efforts prosper to carry the Earth forward in its evolution. Written and illustrated by two insightful women who experienced the fairy kingdom directly, this book offers a profound, yet simple introduction to fairy worlds and workers. Includes Ingrid Gibb's color paintings of the four races of Little People: Undines (water spirits), Gnomes (earth spirits), Sylphs (air spirits), and Fire-Spirits.
Increasingly, children in our society with issues such as anxiety and depression are treated with drugs and labels. This book proposes that an alternative, more radical approach is needed, which involves spiritual dimensions, such as calling on the child's angel. The book includes explorations of children's life senses, with particular focus on the sense of touch and the senses of motion and balance. Henning Koehler is an experienced therapist, and his love and enthusiasm for the children he works with shines through these pages, bringing life and immediacy to a challenging subject. Parents and teachers alike with appreciate his refreshing and readable approach.
Water's flow constantly links life and death. It is the mediator between the two, and its surface provides a common frontier in nature where they meet. Death is continuously being overcome there." It is the living movement of water that makes life on earth possible. Based on spiritual science and on their own numerous experiments, Theodor and Wolfram Schwenk show that earth is a living organism and that water is its sense organ, which perceives vital cosmic influences and transmitting them to earthly life. The authors' approach to the current water and environmental crises goes beyond problem-oriented and piecemeal band-aid solutions; it suggests that we need a new and radical understanding of water, a revolutionary consciousness that we must reach if the earth is to remain alive. This pioneering classic on water is back in print and more relevant than ever before.
