Biodynamic methods are increasingly used by farmers, gardeners and winemakers. Dennis Klocek argues that, in order to use such methods effectively, the practitioner must undergo constant self-development.Based on numerous lectures, Klocek discusses the kind of inner development and understanding required to work with the elemental nature of the earth. His views are presented in a framework that includes alchemy, the classical four elements, Goethean observation, and the work of Rudolf Steiner.This is not a book of how-to techniques, but a conceptual guidebook to those looking to implement biodynamics at the deepest level.

A seer "sees" more than meets the eye. Ordinary seeing reveals the visible world through one's perceptions of light patterns that we interpret as "the world." Higher seeing perceives patterns and relationships that are invisible to the physical eyes, yet are nevertheless present in our world. This is truly a form of perception, but through the eyes of the soul, or heart. All seeing is a form of cognition, or knowing, and, likewise, higher sight is a form of higher cognition. These two kinds of perception go together. To be a seer is to use the eyes of the soul together with one's physical eyes -- being able to move from one to the other, letting go of one for the other. For those who wish to develop faculties of higher knowing and seeing, The Seer's Handbook is a unique, practical, and extensive guide, filled with exercises, meditations, and insightful commentary.

This exciting book—presented in full color—considers "climate," ultimately, to be an expression of the fundamental task of Gaia, the being of Earth. It expresses the relationship between the more inanimate and mechanized forces of the planet as a physical being and the more inward, biographically evolutionary journey of Earth as an ensouled being, embedded within the larger cosmic drama. The Earth is much more than rocks, water, gas, and heat. It is more than the combined forces in all of the living bodies it selflessly supports. The destiny of Earth as a being of cosmic import weaves intimately with humanity's destiny. At the center of this book is the idea that the climate crisis is one shared by humanity and the Earth as part of our mutual evolution toward higher states of consciousness. Not only is Earth the source of our body, but the Earth also now depends on our efforts to shift our consciousness toward goals higher than self-satisfaction, entertainment, and consumption. Climate is the interface that displays the results of our efforts to attain higher consciousness for all of the cosmos to see and evaluate. In a technically sound, yet highly accessible, discussion of how our Earth's complex climate system works, Dennis Klocek takes the reader through various climate and weather patterns, using case studies of recent events, explaining terms and phenomena, all with the goal of helping us understand the Earth's soul, within which we live and develop as human beings. He describes and explains the earthly and extra-earthly forces behind weather patterns such as draughts, floods, and hurricanes, showing how larger patterns such as El Niño and El Niña develop and affect the complex systems that form weather events. In his surprising final chapter, "Moral Roots of the Climate Crisis," the author discusses the development of human science and consciousness. He contrasts, for example, the geometrical-metaphysical approach of Kepler to the emergence of the computational-mathematical brilliance of Isaac Newton, illustrating the ongoing split in approaches to the study of the natural world. An overly quantitative view of our world has led humankind mostly to dominate, subdue, and take from nature, categorizing our Earth as a numerical rock, permeated by forces completely beyond the control of, and sometimes at direct odds with, human soul activity.... We live on a planet that is alive and whose soul is composed of the tremendously vital sequences of climate patterns that unite all lands and all humans in one organism. From this cosmological perspective, it may be possible to imagine morally responsible scientific approaches to problem solving where human needs and the needs of the Earth as a living being interact in mutually harmonic ways. Climate is for anyone—meteorologists, climatologists, and nonspecialists alike—who would like a deeper understanding our Earth's soul and the "whys" and "hows" of today's increasingly extreme weather patterns.

When Rudolf Steiner gave these lectures 80 years ago, industrial farming was on the rise and organic methods were being replaced in teh name of science, efficiency and technology. With the widespread alarm over the quality of food in recent years, and the growth of the organic movement and its mainstream acceptance, perceptions are changing. With these talks, Steiner created and launched biodynamic farming - a specific form of agriculture which has come to be regarded as premium organic.

New Zealand grazing consultant Peter Bacchus shares a lifetime of experience on applying biodynamics to pastures. His multi-pronged approach considers balance of fertility elements, organic matter levels, soil life, and particularly soil life forces. Through biodynamic preparations and other tools he seeks to produce optimum grass quality and production for grazing animals. Also covered are biodynamic methods of pest and weed control.

Bankrupt farmers, erosion of topsoil, and poor food quality owing to pesticides, hormones, and other additives-these are the well-known realities of the modern crisis in farming. This problem is the outcome of the limited vision of conventional methods and a system that focuses exclusively on quick results and profits. The need for changes is clear, and Koepf provides a vast array of research data and results, as well as many helpful details on animal feeding, crop rotation, diseases, pests, and fertilizing. He shows that the biodynamic method of farming and gardening is the alternative that can turn farming around. Biodynamics is "the oldest alternative agricultural movement in the world." It is based on the concept of the whole farm as a single organism. Its goals are to protect and nurture the soil, improve the quality of food, and organically integrate the farm into the environment as a whole. This is an essential reference for all farmers who are unsatisfied with conventional methods and for gardeners who wish to improve the quality of life around them as well as the food they serve their families.
