June 10th at the Honolulu Anthroposophical Society
Forgiveness is one of the most misunderstood spiritual ideas and practices. According to Sergei Prokoviev, forgiveness is central to the anthroposophical path of spiritual development. First, we will cover how forgiveness can be brought about in our various energy bodies (astral, ego, and higher ego). Second, based on this spiritual understanding, we will see how to bring change to trauma, anger, and uncomfortable feelings by practicing forgiveness through the Aramaic concept of the Rakhma, or the spiritual soul (Michael Ryce’s approach).
This workshop is perfect for those who often work with “difficult people” and want to change their reaction (forgive) to those people; and it is also helpful for those of us who are difficult people. Teachers will benefit the most by using these methods for their child study, dealing with parents, and work colleagues. As Steiner once famously suggested: “Is my pupil's deficiency not the result of my own action?” or in simple English: “make a change in yourself before wanting to see a change in others.” This is the type of forgiveness that we will be working with in this workshop.
This website serves three groups of people. First, those who are already familiar with Rudolf Steiner and his writings and who want to go deeper into
how Steiner wanted his books read and meditated on. Second, those writers who are looking for an organic-spiritual style of writing, the same style that was used by great writers as
well as is being used by advertising companies and corporate media. Third, it serves Waldorf educators and great books teachers who want an organic method of teaching and
This website is dedicated to George O'Neil and Florin Lowndes' work on Rudolf Steiner's books as well as the method of thinking and writing they discovered in Steiner's works.
Rudolf Steiner composed his books with wave-like thought-forms. These thought-forms would open the heart of his reader when read with enough awareness. Although many people read and have read Rudolf Steiner they never knew the true value of his books.
Of course the best place to start is section one What is the Logik of the Heart? for a basic description. However if you are familiar with Steiner's work go to Section 5 and 6 and look at how O'Neil sketched out a Steiner book and found incredible forms.
Or you can go to the various starter texts such as the Preface and Second Appendix to the Philosophy of Freedom in Section 6, under the link "Study guide for Rudolf Steiner's Heart-Thinking."
The Logik of the Heart gives many models on how to improve your own writing templates by showing how Biblical authors, Plato, Emerson, Steiner, and Neale Donald Walsch composed their books in the heart-logik style. The book includes poems, prayers, and the Gettysburg Address. It develops a school of literary criticism and analysis: analyzing books according to their organic form. It provides educators a whole new way of mastering a text.
There is a thorough methodology given on how to work, read, and study a Steiner text (The Philosophy of Freehood) for the purpose of developing the power of the Logik of the Heart.
