The first chapter of the Acts of the Apostles describes Christ's Ascension: "A cloud received him out of their sight." Two angels appeared and told the disciples, "This same Jesus, taken up from you into heaven, shall come again in the same way as you have seen him go." In 1910, Rudolf Steiner announced the advent of Christ's appearance in the Earth's etheric life body. To begin with, only a few will be aware of it, but eventually people will be strengthened, comforted, and infused by the Christ's living presence.

What do the festivals mean to us today?In this selection of thirty of Rudolf Steiner's most important lectures on the festivals, he identifies and illumines the true meaning behind Christmas, Easter, Ascension and Pentecost, and Michaelmas, emphasizing both their inner-spiritual and outer-cosmic aspects. He shows that the festivals are not merely the commemoration of mighty historical events or truths within the Christian tradition, but are in themselves -- each year -- spiritual events, manifesting in seasonal and natural rhythms, which carry a significance that grows and deepens with the developing of human evolution.

Can we truly know what lies beneath our feet, in the deep depths of the earth? In this comprehensive volume Steiner's unique overview gives a picture of the nine layers of the earth as they become visible via the research of the spiritual scientist. The layers range from the familiar 'mineral' on which we live, to the innermost core which Steiner connects to human and animal powers of reproduction. In between are 'Mirror Earth', which represents qualities of extreme evil, and 'Fire Earth', which is connected to natural catastrophes.

The current situation in sport reveals a large deficit concerning concepts for future developments and projects. Many traditional values, ethical standards and educational ideals are losing their significance - in particular for the young generation. In contrast, commercial media sport as well as international top sport stand to gain from the changing rating of sport in our society. On the other hand, matters of fitness, health and of general wellness are firmly grounded in the daily routine of the population. The gap in the development of sport is widening. What answers, concepts or problem-solving does a science, which deals with these topics, come up with? These are the guidelines of the "Club of Cologne", which is trying to suggest perspectives by means of active research and subsequent publications, to present models and strategies, and to enrich public discussion by offering approaches or solutions.
