A Handbook for Working with Steiner's Meditations and Exercises

Rudolf Steiner (1861–1924) spoke many times about the need for more than an intellectual understanding of what he taught as the spiritual path of Anthroposophy, or Spiritual Science, and to this end provided numerous meditations and exercises for his esoteric students during the first three decades of the twentieth century. He always emphasized the need for self-development through the regular practice of meditations and exercises to strengthen and clarify one’s thinking, feeling, and will. Steiner saw such efforts as means not only to develop spiritual sight, but also to protect oneself inwardly from the various dangers inherent to inner development, including egoism and mistaking fantasy for spiritual realities.

This handbook offers verses, exercises, and original instructions from Steiner, along with commentary, suggestions, and context from Gertrude Reif Hughes, a student of Anthroposophy for much of her life. Having meditated Steiner’s verses and their meanings for decades, she describes how the content of these inspiring meditations can create far-reaching effects for one’s life on Earth as well as for one’s eventual life in the spiritual world.

More Radiant than the Sun
will be a valuable companion for anyone who is serious about deepening the practice of Anthroposophy.
