When her husband was diagnosed with a serious brain tumor, Marianne Tauber turned to art-painting and poetry-to cope with the situation. Years later, she explicates what was behind the drive to create, presenting seventeen paintings and poems alongside a narrative of the time of crisis in journal form and then delving into the concepts of Jungian psychology and alchemy to make sense of the images and their healing effect. "This is a gripping and powerful book, catalyzed by crisis and personal tragedy, but born of an imaginative and courageous spirit. Through her meditative discipline, painting, and poetry, Tauber looks unflinchingly into the darkest depths of her soul. Creatively developing an alchemical active imagination, she follows an arduous path, not only to psychological survival, but to redemption, greater wholeness, and wisdom. Replete with archetypal and symbolic amplifications, The Soul's Ministrations is a significant and scholarly contribution to Jungian literature and a valuable guide to anyone who must struggle with the tragic aspects of life or wishes to learn about the creative depths of the psyche." -Stanton Marlan, Ph.D., ABPP
8 lectures plus extracts and notes (CW 286) This collection introduces Rudolf Steiner's vision of architecture as a culmination of the arts. Such architecture unites sculpture, painting, and engraving as well as drama, music and dance--a vital synthesis of all the arts working in cooperation through the common ideal of awakening us to our individuality and task in life. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Steiner's ideas did not remain abstract. Within his lifetime he was able to design and construct a number of buildings, including his architectural masterpiece, the Goetheanum--a center for culture and arts near Basle, Switzerland. In these lectures Steiner describes, with reference to the Goetheanum, the importance of an architecturally coherent and integrated community, and how this in turn affects social unity and harmony. These lectures offer a panorama of the development of architecture in parallel with the emerging human soul in human evolution. This is a valuable collection for all students of architecture, the arts, social science, and those looking for a deeper spiritual understanding of the art of architecture. Includes eight color plates and 30 black & white illustrations.
