Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 42

In this the shrouding gloom of winter
The soul feels ardently impelled
To manifest its innate strength,
To guide itself to realms of darkness,
Anticipating thus
Through warmth of heart the sense-world's
revelation.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 16

To bear in inward keeping spirit bounty
Is stern command of my prophetic feeling,
That ripened gifts divine
Maturing in the depths of soul
To selfhood bring their fruits.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

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.
