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.

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).

The Seer's Handbook

A Guide to Higher Perception

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.

Das javanische Schattentheater wayang kulit gilt als der Inbegriff javanischer Kunst und Ethik. Anhand einer historischen Analyse der wayang kulit Rezeptionsgeschichte kann jedoch gezeigt werden, dass der Stellenwert des wayang kulit als -klassische- Theaterform zum grossen Teil Produkt der in der Kolonialzeit entstandenen und von der kolonialen Elite weiterentwickelten Interpretationen ist. Wayang kulit wird in einen historischen und sozio-politischen Rahmen gestellt, um zu analysieren, wie die wissenschaftlichen Kategorien Europas das heutige Verstandnis vom wayang kulit gepragt und verandert haben."

Geheime Techniken werden im Karate oft angesprochen, bleiben jedoch weitgehend unerschlossen. Dieses Buch führt systematisch in die Geheimnisse der Kampfkunst ein und orientiert sich dabei an den Techniken aus den traditionellen Karate Kata. Langjährige Studien bei Meistern aus Japan und Okinawa und bei Spezialisten aus anderen Ländern liegen dem aktuellen Buch zu Grunde. Die Zusammenhänge zwischen Kyushotechniken, der chinesischen Akupunktur und der westlichen Vorstellung über neurologische Funktionen werden erklärt. Anhand neuartiger Grafiken wird der Einstieg für den Leser wesentlich erleichtert. Zahlreiche Varianten von Techniken aus der Selbstverteidigung werden systematisch dargestellt und didaktisch neu aufgearbeitet. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die geheimen Techniken, die in den Kata des Karate verschlüsselt sind. Die Praktikabilität der Bunkai (Anwendungen) aus den Kata entscheidet über den Sinn der jeweiligen Interpretation. Es ist der Weg zurück zu den Wurzeln. "Wer den Weg Fluss aufwärts nicht geht, wird nie zur Quelle gelangen."

A new approach to actor training by a senior teacher, this illustrated manual shows how to use the body to produce rich, varied and truthful performances. The approach, rooted in the Michael Chekhov Technique, integrates ancient Qigong knowledge with somatic psychology and western actor training methods to identify the links between physical shape, emotion and feeling in performance. Supporting and illustrating the text, extensive practical exercises developed through actor training classes provide techniques to tune and adapt the body in preparation for creative work. This book will enhance your understanding of the actor's craft, offering the opportunity to grow and advance your pre-existing skills. Warm ups and sequences of exercises will enable you to implement and fully understand this innovative approach. All of the work can be applied to live and screen performances.

Climate

Soul of the Earth

Author: Klocek, Dennis

This exciting book—presented in full color—considers "climate," ultimately, to be an expression of the fundamental task of Gaia, the being of Earth. It expresses the relationship between the more inanimate and mechanized forces of the planet as a physical being and the more inward, biographically evolutionary journey of Earth as an ensouled being, embedded within the larger cosmic drama. The Earth is much more than rocks, water, gas, and heat. It is more than the combined forces in all of the living bodies it selflessly supports. The destiny of Earth as a being of cosmic import weaves intimately with humanity's destiny. At the center of this book is the idea that the climate crisis is one shared by humanity and the Earth as part of our mutual evolution toward higher states of consciousness. Not only is Earth the source of our body, but the Earth also now depends on our efforts to shift our consciousness toward goals higher than self-satisfaction, entertainment, and consumption. Climate is the interface that displays the results of our efforts to attain higher consciousness for all of the cosmos to see and evaluate. In a technically sound, yet highly accessible, discussion of how our Earth's complex climate system works, Dennis Klocek takes the reader through various climate and weather patterns, using case studies of recent events, explaining terms and phenomena, all with the goal of helping us understand the Earth's soul, within which we live and develop as human beings. He describes and explains the earthly and extra-earthly forces behind weather patterns such as draughts, floods, and hurricanes, showing how larger patterns such as El Niño and El Niña develop and affect the complex systems that form weather events. In his surprising final chapter, "Moral Roots of the Climate Crisis," the author discusses the development of human science and consciousness. He contrasts, for example, the geometrical-metaphysical approach of Kepler to the emergence of the computational-mathematical brilliance of Isaac Newton, illustrating the ongoing split in approaches to the study of the natural world. An overly quantitative view of our world has led humankind mostly to dominate, subdue, and take from nature, categorizing our Earth as a numerical rock, permeated by forces completely beyond the control of, and sometimes at direct odds with, human soul activity.... We live on a planet that is alive and whose soul is composed of the tremendously vital sequences of climate patterns that unite all lands and all humans in one organism. From this cosmological perspective, it may be possible to imagine morally responsible scientific approaches to problem solving where human needs and the needs of the Earth as a living being interact in mutually harmonic ways. Climate is for anyone—meteorologists, climatologists, and nonspecialists alike—who would like a deeper understanding our Earth's soul and the "whys" and "hows" of today's increasingly extreme weather patterns.

Eco-Alchemy

Anthroposophy and the History and Future of Environmentalism

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.

Das Bienenvolk übt eine starke Faszination auf den Menschen aus. Das gilt heute noch genauso wie in früheren Zeiten. Bilder und Schriften erzählen vom Mythos Bienenvolk, von der Auseinandersetzung mit diesem Himmelswesen und dem unschätzbaren Wert von Honig und Wachs. Durch das Bienensterben ist das Thema wieder vermehrt ins Zentrum des öffentlichen Bewusstseins gelangt.Aus Rudolf Steiners Ausführungen vor den Arbeitern am Goetheanum ist eine Vortragsfolge entstanden, die dem Wesen der Bienen gewidmet ist. Die Vorträge sind hier als Ganzes integriert, sie bilden das Gerüst dieses Buches. Um die Vorträge herum sind einige Themen der Vorträge aus heutiger Sicht kommentiert. Zu einem besseren Verständnis sind sie mit Passagen aus dem Gesamtwerk ergänzt worden. Die Faszination der Vorträge liegt in ihrer Vielschichtigkeit, eröffnen sie doch ganz neue, beeindruckende Zugänge zum Wesen der Bienen.
