Synopsis

The Calendar of the Soul A Commentary by Karl Konig

Karl Konig meditated intensely on the 52 weekly verses of Rudolf Steiner's Calendar of the Soul. He often encouraged his colleagues to find inner strength from the verses, and wrote this book as a guide for them, drawing out the patterns through the course of the year. There are also some lecture notes and additional essays. This book will be a useful and inspiring guide for anyone who wants to fully understand and experience Steiner's Calendar. There is also a separate complementary book, An Inner Journey Through the Year, which contains Konig's 52 colour sketches based on the Calendar of the Soul.

About the Author

Karl Konig (1902-66) was well-known as a physician, author and lecturer. He began his work at the Institute of Embryology at the University of Vienna. In 1940 he founded the Camphill Movement in Scotland. Based on the educational ideas of Rudolf Steiner, the special education schools for children and villages for adults with special needs are now established all over Britain and Europe, North America and Southern Africa. Richard Steel, born 1952 in Oxford, England, completed the Camphill seminar for Curative Education at Fohrenbuhl at Bodensee (Lake Constance), Germany, in 1975. He lived and worked there with his family in one of the households for children with special needs. Since 2008, he has shared responsibility for Karl Konig's estate and runs the Karl Konig Archive in Berlin.
