“Stumbling through life, gazing at the stars, we can miss the greatest treasure beneath our feet. For the ordinary faculties of our soul – how we think, how we feel, how we act – are the rough & fallen forms of our highest spiritual capacities”*. The teacher and seer, Rudolf Steiner, talked of 6 simple exercises, which take just a few minutes of each day, and are power tools for personal growth and inner strengthening. I have been practicing these exercises over many years and every time I consciously set my being to incorporate them into my day I feel the breadth of my inner world widen allowing me a clarity that reflects inwardly & outwardly. We have four books on these exercises in our shop –
Enlivening the Chakra of the Heart by Florin Lowndes
Raising the Soul by Warren Lee Cohen
Stairway of Surprise by Michael Lipson
$23 a collection of Dr Steiner’s statements on the exercises
“These exercises are simple, but demanding. By strengthening our capacity to pay attention, they allow us to say the right word & have the fresh thought just when we need to. They gradually lead us out of the mire of distraction & confusion, & allow us to practice what we need most: continual presence of mind.”*

With school holidays finally here, families are relaxing or getting ready for a trip away and those still working appreciate the lighter traffic and general ‘quietness’ that comes with holidays. Autumn brings a breathing out for all of us and we look towards those activities we’ve been wanting to learn or do but haven’t had the time. Finally we get the chance to find a great book to read or a new jigsaw for the table for everyone to help with, time for games and laughter, for creating with crafts of all sorts, drawing and painting, days full of imaginative play or time to gently enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of our shop with a cuppa and handmade organic delights.

Have you ever contemplated the effect of the changing seasons of the year on your inner life? Have you ever worked with Rudolf Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul? “In listening week by week to the changing language of the year, the soul will find a way to discover also its own nature: it will realize how forces are stirring within its being and giving it new life and strength.” Rudolf Steiner in ‘The Illustrated Calendar of the Soul’.
A new publication by Michael Hedley Burton brings something quite new to working with these verses. Burton is the author of ‘In the Light of a Child’, where the verses were given in a form appropriate for children. Now, in his new book, ‘Seasons of the Soul’, he offers verses that have been freely paraphrased and translated, and combines them with original poems in which he hopes to “release some of the incredible concentration” of the verses in German. His foreword and introductory chapters contain an exploration of some of the questions relating to working with the calendar in the southern hemisphere and the tropics. Anybody who has worked with the Calendar of the Soul, or wanted to, will find a work of immense value in this book.
Another publication we have in stock is a ‘Facsimile Edition of the original book containing the calendar created by Rudolf Steiner for the year 1912-13’. It contains an English introduction, the Facsimile Edition (in German) containing monthly, weekly and daily cosmic references, a translation of all the verses, and Rudolf Steiner’s sketches. It is a fascinating book for the dedicated student.
Some of the other Calendar of the Soul publications also available
The Calendar of the Soul – a commentary by Karl Konig
Calendar of the Soul – the year particpated, translated by Owen Barfield
Illustrated Calendar of the Soul – meditations for the yearly cycle with 32 pictures by Anne Stockton

Being a book lover from long ago, you might say I’m in seventh heaven owning a book shop! So many wonderful books… On the other hand, I do think it’s possible to read too much! I believe we need time to assimilate what we read otherwise it just becomes information overload. I chose The Quiet Heart by Dr Peter Gruenwald for the first book for The Honeyclock Book Discussion Group and took it home about a month ago to have a bit of a look. Normally, I would finish a book this size in a day or two, maybe a week if I was really busy – but not this one! Talk about needing time to assimilate! Very early in the book, Dr Gruenwald describes his ‘Heart Breathing’ exercise, a type of imaginative meditation technique. Straight away, I have incorporated this into my morning meditation. I found it remarkably easy to begin, and also to maintain. It’s simple, and yet I find myself wanting to really get the hang of it before I move on further in the book. One of the next things is a Core Values Worksheet – it looks really good and I’m looking forward to working with others on it.
Come and join this fortnightly discussion group – it will be well worth it! THURS from 28 Feb, 1-2.30pm, $10 p/f, includes a cuppa & cake For more information check out our workshops page
We may also look at beginning an online group if we have enough interest – let us know what you want.
