Earth.” — Rudolf Steiner
In a wide-ranging series of lectures, Rudolf Steiner demonstrates the
integral nature of spirit and matter and their manifold connections.
Speaking to audiences in London, Holland, Germany, and Switzerland,

sources of existence but now needs to reconnect with them. Spirit is
the essence and power of life that, in Steiner's vivid image,
“strikes a match in our whole being” when we allow it to
inform us fully.
These lectures offer a cornucopia of spiritual insights and wisdom for

organism; the evolution of medicine; healing through the etheric and
through the physical; health and illness in relation to dead and living

This lecture by Rudolf Steiner was given in Stuttgart a few weeks
before the first Goetheanum, the building to which he had given
loving work as architect, sculptor, and painter, was completely
destroyed by fire. In this lecture he speaks of the heritage brought
over from the life before birth, and of the quality in the human soul
which is a seed for the life after death, the quality of love; and of
the power of the arts to make a bridge between the two worlds.
