Product Description

About the Author

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', meaning 'wisdom of the human being'. As a highly developed seer, he based his work on direct knowledge and perception of spiritual dimensions. He initiated a modern and universal 'science of spirit', accessible to anyone willing to exercise clear and unprejudiced thinking. From his spiritual investigations Steiner provided suggestions for the renewal of many activities, including education (both general and special), agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. Today there are thousands of schools, clinics, farms and other organizations involved in practical work based on his principles. His many published works feature his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development. Steiner wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe. In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world.

If you are on the spiritual path this book on Steiners insights on nutrition is a must read. He presents things one would not dream of and helps one to relate to which food choices that can promote your search. It's not just being vegetarian but what kind of vegetarian. How things like how coffee and tea and many other food choices influence your mind. Yes, and even new stuff like raw food.

Fascinating and though provoking ideas on how food affects our soul-spiritual nature. Abiding thought for me "You eat what you are" instead of the more common "You are what you eat". Try it and open up your mind to a unique take on nutrition

Haven't read it all yet but the chapter on smoking alone is worth buying for. A real hoot.

Rudolf Steiner 6 Sept. 2010
By 9thbody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
He was an amazing intuit who gained the essence of a deeper understanding that the average human being, is too busy running around in survival mode, to appreciate.
Rudolf Steiner though less known was up there with Edgar Cayce and several physics of the time. There appears to be nothing new under the sun, it is just when our opening allows us to accept a thing or being that is not "normally" seen heard or felt. It is all there, always was. And Rudolf has an amazing grasp of the processes of karma. He "saw" the chain of events that leads to the next chain of events.

Haven't read about the nutrition but he does go into depth about the vegetables and what kind of vegetarianism is best for what type of eater. He has several types that he directs his advice and comments to.

The book itself was in wonderful shape and the delivery timely

Quick read 22 Mar. 2013
By spindleshanks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Interesting take on nutrition. VERY nonjudgmental and respectful of the reader. Not much new here if you are a Steiner student. If not, then it is a modest intro to his larger works, which certainly flesh out all else related to life and health.

Classic Steiner 25 Jun. 2013
By GrandmaShoezee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Steiner was all about the evolution of consciousness. In this book he explains why nutrition affects consciousness. He said modern nutrition was inhibiting higher states of consciousness, and he said this almost a hundred years ago.

Interesting reading related to the advantages and disadvantages of different kind of food, alcohol, and nicotine. There are very interesting comments related to vegetarianism and the influence in our organism.

Explore the foundations of nutrition relative to the entire human being! 17 July 2013
By Gabriel Ricci - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Finally a comprehensive approach to nutrition to augment the limited mechanistic conjecture now popular with physical science. Today's nutrition science is very shallow and based on a limited mechanistic view of the human being. So many conflicting studies simply verify the frivolity of our limited approach to human health. Until science moves out of mechanistic thinking our advice on nutrition will be grounded in conjecture and nonsense.
