This volume brings together for the first time two classic booklets: The Foundation Stone and The Life, Nature, and Cultivation of Anthroposophy. The first contains Steiner's comments of The Foundation Stone Meditation, made during the reestablishment of the Anthroposophical Society at the Christmas Conference of 1923-1924. The Foundation Stone Meditation is central in the meditative life of many students of spiritual science. Part two, The Life, Nature, and Cultivation of Anthroposophy, contains letters that Steiner wrote to members of the Anthroposophical Society following the Christmas Conference. They contain thoughts and guidelines regarding the Anthroposophical Society and its members' conduct in the world.An excellent companion to this book is Constitution of the School of Spiritual Science: An Introductory Guide.
