What is the practice of Anthroposophy?
Is Anthroposophy merely revealed spiritual knowledge?
Or is it a discipline and a path toward spiritual understanding?
Around the world today, people long for and seek a deeper understanding of themselves and the world we inhabit and share. It seems imperative that such a deepening takes place. Jon McAlice writes, “Only a consciousness that can embrace the other as oneself, that knows the world from within, and that can illuminate actions born of empathetic participation and engagement can begin to fathom the enormity of what faces us as human beings.”
Beginning with the observation that the path toward spiritual understanding that Rudolf Steiner described—as well as Steiner himself—is widely and variously misunderstood, A Path of Encounter sheds much-needed light on this singular method of self-development, as well as on the person who first walked it.
In a clear, straightforward, and personable style, this book introduces and guides the reader gently but rigorously into a method of spiritual development that, in the end, can be understood only on its own terms.
