ABOUT THE BOOK (from amazon.com)
-- "Asked how one might find one's way into Christianity, Brother David Steindl-Rast, a Benedictine monk, advised, 'Meditate the sacred year.' In the same vein, when asked what a lifetime's study of Anthroposophy* had given him, the English philosopher Owen Barfield replied, 'I now have some idea of the reality of the living year.' For readers who like to chew on poetry meditatively, Weekly Meditations will set them firmly on the path to realizing both these great realities.
Rudolf Steiner's weekly verses allow readers to follow the course of the year in body, soul, and spirit. Patsy Scala's poetic reflections, arising from her deep practice of the verses, provide an accessible and complementary guide to one's daily practice--from the perspective of one who has sought to live inwardly with the sacred, living year.
Weekly Meditations is a book to keep handy and continually return to throughout the seasons.
About the Center: Recognizing that "we can no longer afford to live for ourselves alone, the mission of the Center for Spiritual and Cultural Unity is to promote the unity of spiritual principle and its consistent cultural expression. We accomplish our mission through a combination of: (1) educational classes, (2) sacred spiritual services and prayer, (3) meditation, (4) body movement practices such as yoga, (5) musical, dramatic, and artistic events, and (6) community service. The Center helps people on a path to achieve prosperity, reignite energy, deepen a sense of belonging, heal pain, discover meaning, and regain balance in life.
*Anthroposophy is a spiritual philosophy based on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner which postulates the existence of an objective, intellectually comprehensible spiritual world accessible to direct experience by conscientiously cultivating thinking independent of sensory experience. The Anthroposophical Society has its international center at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland.
