Cosmic and Earthly Evolution

Studies from Rudolf Steiner’s Research
into Spiritual Science

An 8 week online (zoom) study course with Cynthia Hoven

Registration is Currently Closed

One of the most important contributions of Spiritual Science is the perspective that the foundation of all things is Consciousness, and that everything that exists has a different level of awareness. In this sense, even the material world is “condensed spirit.”

This has enormous implications for all of our relationships with the natural world and with the supersensible world. With this background, we will consider Steiner’s description of how all beings are striving to evolve to ever greater awareness, and specifically how the next step of human evolution is to develop our hearts and minds, so we learn how to fully participate in world becoming, through deeds of love offered in true freedom.

Our study will be based on Rudolf Steiner’s works, found in many of his published works. Students are expected to read at least one of the following books, keeping up with the lectures week by week, as they are presented.

Required Reading:
Primary book: An Outline of Esoteric Science (also known as Occult Science), GA 13

Secondary books: Cosmic Memory (from the Akashic Chronicles), GA11 (the entire book

A Theosophy of the Rosicrucians GA 99 (also sold as "Rosicrucian Wisdom): especially chapters 8-13
