Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 36

Within my being's depths there speaks,
Intent on revelation,
The cosmic Word mysteriously:
Imbue your labor's aims
With my bright spirit light
To sacrifice yourself through me.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 10

To summer's radiant heights
The sun in shining majesty ascends;
It takes my human feeling
Into its own wide realms of space.
Within my inner being stirs
Presentiment which heralds dimly,
You shall in future know:
A godly being now has touched you.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

The Agriculture Course
GA 327

With these talks, Steiner created and launched ‘biodynamic’ farming — a specific form of agriculture which has come to be regarded as ‘premium organic.’ However, the agriculture Steiner speaks of in this book is much more than organic, and involves working with the cosmos, earth, and spiritual entities. To facilitate this, Steiner prescribes specific ‘preparations’ for the soil, as well as other distinct methods born from his profound understanding of the material as well as spiritual worlds. He presents a comprehensive picture of the complex dynamic relationships at work in nature and gives basic indications of the practical measures which are necessary for bringing them into full play.

These lectures are reproduced here in a first English translation edited by Dr. Guenther Wachsmuth. This edition also features a Preface by Steiner's colleague, the good doctor Guenther Wachsmuth, as well as facsimile representations of the blackboard drawings made by Rudolf Steiner.
