by Rudolf Steiner
Translated by George
and Mary Adams
Meditations features over 90 of Rudolf
Steiner's best-loved verses and meditations. This volume collects a
range of material on various themes, such as working with spiritual
beings, connecting with loved ones who have passed over, developing
selfhood, and celebrating festivals and seasons.
Countless people have worked with
these meditations over the decades and can testify to their power,
as well as the strength and comfort they offer the meditant.
Although various translations from the German exist for many of the
verses, George and Mary Adams's renderings can truly be said to be
'classic', and are the most widely used within the English-speaking
anthroposophical movement that has grown up around Steiner's work.
George Adams acted as Rudolf Steiner's personal interpreter when he
lectured in Britain, and thus developed an intuitive understanding
of Steiner's deepest impulses connected to esoteric work.
Those who are familiar with Steiner's
Verses and Meditations will
be delighted that they are available again, while those who approach
them for the first time will discover a treasure of wisdom as well
as abundant tools for personal transformation. This edition also
features the original German texts where applicable.

Verses and Meditations - Rudolf Steiner
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.
