Sacred Agriculture

ISBN: 158420141X
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Science

Biodynamic methods are increasingly used by farmers, gardeners and winemakers. Dennis Klocek argues that, in order to use such methods effectively, the practitioner must undergo constant self-development.Based on numerous lectures, Klocek discusses the kind of inner development and understanding required to work with the elemental nature of the earth. His views are presented in a framework that includes alchemy, the classical four elements, Goethean observation, and the work of Rudolf Steiner.This is not a book of how-to techniques, but a conceptual guidebook to those looking to implement biodynamics at the deepest level.

A new approach to actor training by a senior teacher, this illustrated manual shows how to use the body to produce rich, varied and truthful performances. The approach, rooted in the Michael Chekhov Technique, integrates ancient Qigong knowledge with somatic psychology and western actor training methods to identify the links between physical shape, emotion and feeling in performance. Supporting and illustrating the text, extensive practical exercises developed through actor training classes provide techniques to tune and adapt the body in preparation for creative work. This book will enhance your understanding of the actor's craft, offering the opportunity to grow and advance your pre-existing skills. Warm ups and sequences of exercises will enable you to implement and fully understand this innovative approach. All of the work can be applied to live and screen performances.

Climate

Author: Klocek, Dennis
Publisher: SteinerBooks
ISBN: 9781584204589
Release Date: 2010-12-01
Genre: Science

This exciting book—presented in full color—considers "climate," ultimately, to be an expression of the fundamental task of Gaia, the being of Earth. It expresses the relationship between the more inanimate and mechanized forces of the planet as a physical being and the more inward, biographically evolutionary journey of Earth as an ensouled being, embedded within the larger cosmic drama. The Earth is much more than rocks, water, gas, and heat. It is more than the combined forces in all of the living bodies it selflessly supports. The destiny of Earth as a being of cosmic import weaves intimately with humanity's destiny. At the center of this book is the idea that the climate crisis is one shared by humanity and the Earth as part of our mutual evolution toward higher states of consciousness. Not only is Earth the source of our body, but the Earth also now depends on our efforts to shift our consciousness toward goals higher than self-satisfaction, entertainment, and consumption. Climate is the interface that displays the results of our efforts to attain higher consciousness for all of the cosmos to see and evaluate. In a technically sound, yet highly accessible, discussion of how our Earth's complex climate system works, Dennis Klocek takes the reader through various climate and weather patterns, using case studies of recent events, explaining terms and phenomena, all with the goal of helping us understand the Earth's soul, within which we live and develop as human beings. He describes and explains the earthly and extra-earthly forces behind weather patterns such as draughts, floods, and hurricanes, showing how larger patterns such as El Niño and El Niña develop and affect the complex systems that form weather events. In his surprising final chapter, "Moral Roots of the Climate Crisis," the author discusses the development of human science and consciousness. He contrasts, for example, the geometrical-metaphysical approach of Kepler to the emergence of the computational-mathematical brilliance of Isaac Newton, illustrating the ongoing split in approaches to the study of the natural world. An overly quantitative view of our world has led humankind mostly to dominate, subdue, and take from nature, categorizing our Earth as a numerical rock, permeated by forces completely beyond the control of, and sometimes at direct odds with, human soul activity.... We live on a planet that is alive and whose soul is composed of the tremendously vital sequences of climate patterns that unite all lands and all humans in one organism. From this cosmological perspective, it may be possible to imagine morally responsible scientific approaches to problem solving where human needs and the needs of the Earth as a living being interact in mutually harmonic ways. Climate is for anyone—meteorologists, climatologists, and nonspecialists alike—who would like a deeper understanding our Earth's soul and the "whys" and "hows" of today's increasingly extreme weather patterns.

The Seer s Handbook

Author: Dennis Klocek
Publisher: SteinerBooks
ISBN: 9780880109376
Release Date: 2005-08-01
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

A seer "sees" more than meets the eye. Ordinary seeing reveals the visible world through one's perceptions of light patterns that we interpret as "the world." Higher seeing perceives patterns and relationships that are invisible to the physical eyes, yet are nevertheless present in our world. This is truly a form of perception, but through the eyes of the soul, or heart. All seeing is a form of cognition, or knowing, and, likewise, higher sight is a form of higher cognition. These two kinds of perception go together. To be a seer is to use the eyes of the soul together with one's physical eyes -- being able to move from one to the other, letting go of one for the other. For those who wish to develop faculties of higher knowing and seeing, The Seer's Handbook is a unique, practical, and extensive guide, filled with exercises, meditations, and insightful commentary.

Geisteswissenschaftliche Grundlagen zum Gedeihen der Landwirtschaft

Dieser "Landwirtschaftliche Kurs" wurde 1924 für eine Gruppe von Landwirten aus der anthroposophischen Bewegung gehalten. Aus ihm entwickelte sich die als "biologisch-dynamisch" bezeichnete Anbauweise. Der Kurs gibt aber nicht einfach Anleitungen oder Rezepte, die nach Belieben gehandhabt werden können, sondern er bildet vielmehr den Ausgangspunkt für eine Neuorientierung und für eine Erweiterung des Blickes auf die spirituellen Grundlagen der Landwirtschaft.

The Bond

Release Date: 2015-04-20
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

Ein neues Verständnis von Sein und Bewusstsein Was in der ersten Hälfte des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts mit der Quantenphysik begann, setzt sich seit geraumer Zeit in der Biologie, den Neurowissenschaften, der Psychologie und in den Sozialwissenschaften fort: Neue Forschungsergebnisse stellen die Grundlagen unseres konventionellen Weltbildes nachhaltig in Frage. Genetiker finden immer mehr Beweise dafür, dass unser Erbgut nicht unveränderlich ist, sondern Umwelteinflüsse unsere Gene ein- und ausschalten können. Neurowissenschaftler zeigen uns, wie Spiegelneuronen die Grenzen zwischen Beobachter und Beobachtetem auflösen, und Sozialwissenschaftler versichern uns, dass unser Bedürfnis nach Kooperation angeboren und nicht anerzogen ist. Lynne McTaggart trägt die wichtigsten Forschungsergebnisse zusammen, die das Weltbild der Quantenphysik auf allen Ebenen bestätigen. Die Theorie ergänzt sie durch eindrucksvolle Fallgeschichten. Ihre revolutionäre Schlussfolgerung lautet: Wir existieren in einem feinstofflichen Energiefeld, das alles miteinander verbindet: The Bond. Die Wahrnehmung der Getrenntheit ist letztendlich eine Illusion.

Die Inkas, eine der größten Zivilisationen des amerikanischen Kontinents, waren nicht nur berühmte Städtebauer, sondern besaßen auch ein außergewöhnliches Medizinsystem. Ihre Schamanen entwickelten vor mehr als 5000 Jahren eine Technik, Krankheiten mit Geist und Licht zu heilen. Alberto Villoldo studierte 25 Jahre lang die heilende Macht dieser energiemedizinischen Tradition. Aufbauend auf dem alten Heilsweg, stellte er ein praktikables Programm zusammen, das es ermöglicht, sich selbst und andere zu heilen und Krankheiten zu vermeiden. Kernstück seines Konzepts sind die lichtvollen Energiefelder, die den materiellen Körper umgeben und sich im Krankheitsfall verändern. Schritt für Schritt macht Villoldo den Leser mit den Techniken vertraut, die Aura zu sehen und das Energiefeld zu harmonisieren.

Genre: Fiction

Those who lived in the Ancient World knew the human body held the true secrets of the Universe. Temples were constructed to honour the great achievement that is your image. None were more meticulous in this honouring than the Ancient Egyptians. Through time, these inflowing teachings have been manipulated so the few hold power over the many. Organisations of evil have been formed and have endured to hide this wisdom. Many of these teachings have been held by the House of the Illuminated Ones, who in the current world are the rulers of the God of the times, the False Law of Economy. But where there is a need, the Universe answers. A shooting star has followed the path of the great unifying Egyptian God Osiris and landed on a remote beach in Kauai, the Heart of the Earth. An unlikely hero, Leonardo Sassafras, finds the octahedral crystalline star called the Gateway of Nu, which holds a simple message for humanity. The Gateway has come to Earth to destroy the chaos of the House of the Illuminated Ones, and activate the Golden Age of Humanity. This is Leonardo’s story.

Ein Weg zur Selbsterkenntnis des Menschen In acht Meditationen

Author: Rudolf Steiner
Publisher: FV Éditions
ISBN: 9782366681079
Release Date: 2015-09-09
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

"In dieser Schrift ist angestrebt, geisteswissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse über die Wesenheit des Menschen zu geben. Die Darstellung ist so gehalten, daß der Leser in das Dargestellte hineinwachsen mag, so daß es ihm im Verlaufe des Lesens wie zu einer Art Selbstgespräch wird. Gestaltet sich dieses Selbstgespräch so, daß dabei vorher verborgene Kräfte sich offenbaren, welche in jeder Seele erweckt werden können, so führt dann das Lesen zu einer wirklichen inneren Seelenarbeit. Und diese kann sich allmählich zur Seelenwanderschaft gedrängt sehen, welche wahrhaftig in das Schauen der geistigen Welt hineinversetzt. Deshalb wurde das Mitgeteilte in der Form von acht Meditationen gegeben, welche wirklich durchgeführt werden können. Geschieht dies, so können sie geeignet sein, der Seele das durch die eigene innere Vertiefung zu übermitteln, wovon in ihnen gesprochen wird" (R. Steiner)
