First Steps in Inner Development - Rudolf SteinerFirst Steps in Inner Development

Selected lectures and extracts by Rudolf Steiner

First Steps in Inner Development: Though Rudolf Steiner is best known for his cultural influence in fields such as education, agriculture, and medicine, it is often forgotten that he made his contribution as a spiritual teacher. What he taught was, above all, a way of spiritual knowledge - a path of inner development to reconnect the spirit in us with the spirit in the universe.

First Steps in Inner Development brings together for the first time a series of fundamental lectures on beginning a path of practice. Since it is by one of the great spiritual masters of the twentieth century, its wisdom and practicality are outstanding.

Here readers will find descriptions of various practical exercises to develop the necessary moral qualities and states of consciousness that inner development requires. More advanced practices and techniques are also discussed.

This is not just a book for beginners. Wherever you are on the path―whatever path you are on―this book can be a helpful companion.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', meaning 'wisdom of the human being'. As a highly developed seer, he based his work on direct knowledge and perception of spiritual dimensions. He initiated a modern and universal 'science of spirit', accessible to anyone willing to exercise clear and unprejudiced thinking.

From his spiritual investigations Steiner provided suggestions for the renewal of many activities, including education (both general and special), agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. Today there are literally thousands of schools, clinics, farms and other organizations involved in practical work based on his principles. His many published works feature his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development. Steiner wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6,000 lectures across Europe. In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world.
