Product Description

From the Publisher

Are they simply gone?
The idea of "working with the dead" - continuing and enhancing our relationships with those who have died - was fundamental to Rudolf Steiner's work. This volume collects an enormously rich harvest of his thoughts on the subject.

Speaking from direct experience, Steiner presents meditation practices and verses that worked for him. We are shown the benefits of reading to the dead; that we should use verbs (rather than nouns) when talking with them; the importance of those sacred moments when falling asleep and awakening for asking questions and receiving answers; how our memories of the dead act like "art" for them; the key moods we should cultivate: and the importance of community with the world, of gratitude and confidence in the current of life.

We learn, too, of the many ways discarnated souls can help us in our work on earth. And we see the many ways we can help them.

This important volume not only helps us deepen our relationship to those who have died, but help us connect with those still around us and to our cosmic, spiritual environment.

A deeply useful book.

RUDOLF STEINER (1861-1925) became a respected and well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, particularly known for his work on Goethe's scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his earlier philosophical principles into an approach to methodical research of psychological and spiritual phenomena. His multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, philosophy, religion, education (Waldorf schools), special education (the Camphill movement), economics, agriculture (biodynamics), science, architecture, and the arts (drama, speech and eurythmy). In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which has branches throughout the world.

First Sentence
TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE DEAD, we need a common language-a living language, not a dead language of old thoughts, unconscious habits, and mechanical emotions. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book by Rudolf Steiner 20 April 2012
By Kate
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think this is a great book. It's the beliefs of the philosopher Steiner, best known as the founder of Steiner Schools and his teachings on education. He is not easy to read, but well worth the effort and his insights and wisdom are fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars STAYING CONNECTED 7 April 2008
By Earth Angel - Published on
Having gone through some painful losses of family and dear friends, I have found this book by Rudolf Steiner to be the best. It is probably his easiest book to read and for those who find themselves around the death portal, Steiner really has the territory mapped out. The dead have much to teach us and Steiner gives detailed ways to develop our capacties to stay connected to the dead. Profound and helpful for those in grief.

5.0 out of 5 stars A helpful guide 8 Jan 2011
By GrandmaShoezee - Published on
I found this book a helpful guide to the physical and spiritual reality of death, both for the soul that passes and the souls of those that remain on earth. I used this guide years ago when my son died and am now rereading it as my mother prepares to leave this life.

2.0 out of 5 stars rather dated 19 Nov 2010
By Carol B. Anderson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's interesting and the author was obviously quite intuitive. However, it was written in a totally different era and I know through my own experiences that much of what he wrote is not correct. He also wrote it in such a stilted manner, that it's not an easy read nor is it enjoyable. I do like the meditations ,though.
