A Gift out of Silence

Anthroposophy is essentially the study of self, of what it means to be human; including the entirety of the experience, of aspects both visible and hidden. The practice was coined by Rudolf Steiner 99 years ago.

In my own experience, self-awareness expands with time. With the visible, the body, as it ages, insists on our attention more and more. The hidden, is realized through silence and introspection, and includes both treasures and terrors. The terrors once faced are neutralized, then act as fertilizers for individuation and awareness.

“Just as in the body, eye and ear develop as organs of perception, as senses for bodily processes, so does a man develop in himself soul and spiritual organs of perception through which the soul and spiritual worlds are opened to him. For those who do not have such higher senses, these worlds are dark and silent, just as the bodily world is dark and silent for a being without eyes and ears.”
Rudolf Steiner
