The Heart of Peace
Meditations for courage and tranquillity
Collected verses and meditations by Rudolf Steiner

The Heart of Peace collection of verses and meditations by Rudolf Steiner highlights the balancing, harmonizing forces of the heart, which are so much undervalued in our cerebral culture.  The verses aim to strengthen the heart by warming and enlivening our  thought processes, promoting genuine peace of mind; by drawing feeling into the hidden depths of our will in order to help develop courage; by nurturing a profound sense of peace within the heart; and by promoting genuine goodwill towards others.

Together they provide a powerful and wholesome antidote to the stresses and strains of modern life.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', which he defined as 'the consciousness of one's humanity', and the disciplined methods of studying this he termed ‘spiritual science’.  As a highly developed clairvoyant and spiritual initiate, he spoke from his direct cognition of the spiritual world. However, he did not see his work as religious or sectarian, but rather sought to found a universal 'science of the spirit'.

His many published works (written books and lectures) - which include his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development - invite readers to develop their own spiritual faculties.  He also provided indications for the renewal of many human activities, including education - both general and special - agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. He wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe, and in 1924 founded the General Anthroposophical Society which today has branches throughout the world.
