As a supplement to the weekly rhythm of the home and business agenda, which is filled with appointments and rushing us through the day, the Anthroposophic Soul Calendar offers for each week of the year, a judgment which can shortly come to pass. Open spaces, there are many, even if sometimes life stresses us.

The weekly verses are numbered, 1 through 52. Saying one beginning at Easter, and the next verse the following week, continuing to the last one, number 52, which approaches the next Easter. Each verses content explains how the relationship of Man and Nature changes the nature of the soul through the seasons in which not only transforms nature, but also humans.

Also available as an APP in the iTunes store! This volume is also known as, The Meditative Year, and The Year Participated.

Although Rudolf Steiner wrote many essays, few have been translated into English. Many are dated and seem not to receive top priority from translators. For this particular GA/Bn, of the 9 total entries, 6 of the entries listed in the contents remain untranslated!
