Rudolf Steiner’s CALENDAR OF THE SOUL

 

In 1912, the Austrian esoteric philosopher and spiritual leader Rudolf Steiner published a little booklet, called Calendar of the Soul, with a verse for each week of the year. He suggests that we begin on Easter Sunday, a celebration of Soul’s victory over death, which is the first Sunday after the full moon following the Spring Equinox. The Soul’s annual journey then follows the path of the Sun and the Moon across the sky. For more information about Calendar of the Soul, click here.
