The Uniqueness of Waldorf Education, by Astrid Schmitt-Stegmann
The Uniqueness of Waldorf Education

Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education was convinced that social problems can only be solved with the help of a pedagogy that educates the whole human being. An education that strives towards the truly human: respect of the other person's autonomy,loving interest in them, and honesty in our approach to them.
This book has three parts: Part I aims to help teachers and parents broaden and deepen their understanding of the growing child. Part II focuses on classroom activities unique to Waldorf education. Part III focuses on some self-transformative work necessary for Waldorf teachers and for every adult individual.

Discovering the Zodiac in the Raphael Madonna Series, by Brian Gray
Discovering the Zodiac in the Raphael Madonna Series, by Brian Gray

Now back in stock!! This book explores Raphael's paintings of the Madonna that express secret truths. Rudolf Steiner described the healing effects of Raphael's Madonnas in August 1908, and between 1908 and 1911 he directed Dr. Felix Peipers to arrange fifteen images as a therapeutic meditation for patients suffering from emotional disturbances. Sometimes called the Raphael Madonna Series, these fifteen pictures invite our active contemplation. Each image can awaken inner pictures that lift us into communion with realms beyond the physical world, stirring our feelings of wonder and reverence and opening our souls to divine mysteries.
