Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere

Week 5

Within the light that out of spirit depths
Weaves germinating power into space
And manifests the gods' creative work:
Within its shine, the soul's true being
Is widened into worldwide life
And resurrected
From narrow selfhood's inner power.

Southern Hemisphere

Week 31

The light from spirit depths
Strives to ray outwards, sun-imbued;
Transformed to forceful will of life
It shines into the senses' dullness
To bring to birth the powers
Whereby creative forces, soul-impelled,
Shall ripen into human deeds.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

The Child's Changing Consciousness and Waldorf Education
GA 306

Here Steiner presents a thorough and understandable picture of Waldorf Education and child development. This volume will provide a good introduction to Waldorf education for parents and professional educators. This volume is also known as “The Swiss Teachers' Course.”

These eight lectures, translated from the German by Roland Everett and edited by Rhona Everett, were given in Dornach in mid to late April, 1923. In the collected edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled: Die Pädagogische Praxis vom Gesichtspunkte geisteswissenschaftlicher Menschenerkenntnis. Die Erziehung des Kindes und juengeren Menschen.
