From Compostela to the New World

Virginia Sease and Manfred Schmidt-Brabant

Softbound

$10.00

Originally $32.00 –

In recent decades, there has been an upsurge of interest in ·the Camino,· the pilgrim·s route to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. But where does this fascination in the spiritual exploration of the Middle Ages come from, and what is its significance?

Virginia Sease and Manfred Schmidt-Brabant assert that we live in a time of spiritual quest, discovery, and change. Humanity is becoming increasingly sensitive, and primal memories are beginning to emerge in people·s consciousness. Within this dynamic context of inner transformation, the Camino·s historic importance is being reechoed in human souls.

Rudolf Steiner explained that people need to live not only with outer history, but also with the esoteric, hidden narrative behind it·the history of the Mysteries. Today, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, the authors suggest that it is increasingly necessary for us to live consciously with this veiled history of humanity·s continual search for communion with the divine world.

Based on long research and contemplation, the authors present a survey of extraordinary breadth and depth. Focusing on the spiritual history of humankind, they begin with the cosmic origin of the Grail Mysteries and culminate with the suprasensory Michael cultus and the being of Anthroposophia.

Topics also include:

  • the school of Athens;
  • early Christian art and its Gnostic impulses;
  • the Grail initiation in northern Spain;
  • the role of the Cathars and Troubadours in the Manichean spiritual stream;
  • the Camino to Santiago de Compostela and the esoteric aspect of music for the pilgrims;
  • the Music of the Spheres and the Elders of the Apocalypse;
  • the Templars as emissaries of the Holy Grail;
  • the initiations of Christian Rosenkreutz and his relation to anthroposophical art;
  • the early Rosicrucian impulses in America and Europe;
  • and much more.

Teaching Spanish in Waldorf Schools - A Guidebook for all Foreign-Language Teachers

Elena Forrer

Softbound

$45.00

This is  a much needed and long awaited book!  The warm heartedness of the author is equaled only by her enthusiasm for teaching and her deep and lively knowledge of Spanish language and culture.  It is a guidebook that paints the oft-daunting path of learning a second language with joy, laughter and beauty.  It is so rich and wonderful in its approach and guidance that I will go so far as to say that any teacher of any subject can learn a great deal from it.  Language teachers, especially those teaching Spanish will find their every hope exceeded.

Andando Caminos offers support in all aspects of Waldorf Spanish lessons, based on the developmental levels as the children move through the grades according to indications from Rudolf Steiner. For language teachers, it is just as important to understand the children in each stage of their development as it is to cultivate balanced and artistic lessons. Andando Caminos does not intend to bring a lesson plan to teachers, but to provide support for that task. It offers a practical perspective on planning the lessons, as well as encouragement for individual teachers to discover their own artistry and gifts.

Included are ample materials available from the Hispanic culture. Although countries in Latin America and Spain share many songs and customs, others are distinctive to each region or country. From the folk tale “El Gallo Kiriko” to “Nicolás Guillén’s Los Abuelos,” and from the Mexican legend of “Los Volcanes” to the shadow play of the ballad “Conde Olinos,” this text brings material suitable for all of the grades. Each piece is introduced with explanatory text for the teacher and is arranged according to the grades, first through eighth. Everything included in this book has been tested in the classroom.

Language teachers in Waldorf schools need more than strategies for delivering content. The work of teaching involves a human approach to learning—creativity and a path of self-discovery. In the words of the Spanish poet Antonio Machado, “Caminante no hay camino se hace camino al andar.”
