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.

For nearly a century, the worldwide anthroposophical movement has been a catalyst for environmental activism, helping to bring to life many modern ecological practices such as organic farming, community-supported agriculture, and green banking. Yet the spiritual practice of anthroposophy remains unknown to most environmentalists. A historical and ethnographic study of the environmental movement, Eco-Alchemy uncovers for the first time the profound influences of anthroposophy and its founder, Rudolf Steiner, whose holistic worldview, rooted in esoteric spirituality, inspired the movement. Dan McKanan shows that environmentalism is itself a complex ecosystem and that it would not be as diverse or transformative without the contributions of anthroposophy.

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.

Summary: Rudolf Steiner is regarded as one of the most influential | and also one of the most controversial | reformers of the twentieth century. He founded the Waldorf schools and advocated a holistic view of humanity which shows its influence in many areas of our lives today | including bio-cosmetics, a heightened environmental consciousness and biodynamic agricultural products, to name a few examples. Steiner inspired artists such as Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky and Joseph Beuys. He was one of the founders of "organic architecture" and also developed a unique stylistic idiom in the area of furniture design. The Vitra Design Museum exhibition "Rudolf Steiner | Alchemy of the Everyday" is the first major retrospective on this universal thinker and artist. Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg (13.5 - 3.10.2010); Kunstmuseum Stuttgart (5.2 - 22.5.2011); Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein (9.2011 - 4.2012).
