Evolution of Consciousness – Part 1

This is the first in a series of seven talks in the series "Studies in Anthroposophy," in which we begin a study of Rudolf Steiner's profound picture of the meaning of life in the context of human and cosmic evolution.

Evolution of Consciousness – Part 2

This is the second a series of 7 talks that follow Rudolf Steiner's description of Human and Cosmic Evolution. In this talk, the 4 kingdoms of nature, the 4 elements, and the 10 ranks of hierarchical beings are described, laying the foundation for the study of the 4 great cycles of Cosmic Evolution.

Evolution of Consciousness – Part 3

This is the third lecture in this 7-part series of Human and Cosmic Evolution. We began with a discussion of the 7-fold nature of the human being, and then embarked on the new study, going backwards through Earth evolution, Ancient Moon, Ancient Sun, and then Ancient Saturn, the beginning of time. Among many other things, we learned that all of the hierarchies are in a process of evolution, and all have gone through their own human stage in different conditions, different cycles of evolution.

Evolution of Consciousness – Part 4

This is the 4th in our series of 7 lectures, in which I describe the second and the third great planetary rounds in the development of our world, as described by Rudolf Steiner in his groundbreaking book "An Outline of Esoteric Science."

Evolution of Consciousness – Part 5

This is the 5th of seven lectures, in which I discuss the beginnings of the evolution of the Earth itself, describing the development through Polaris, Hyperborea and Lemuria.

Evolution of Consciousness – Part 6

This is the 6th of 7 presentations on Human and Cosmic Evolution, in which we look at the evolution in the period known as Atlantis. We also begin the journey into the Post-Atlantean Epoch.

Evolution of Consciousness – Part 7

This is the final lecture in its series, in which we conclude our studies at the present time, our age of the Consciousness Soul. Our next module series will consider the future of humanity!
