A survey of recent history reveals the gloomy picture of an ongoing series of conflicts, wars, and general turmoil. Consequently, the human emotional landscape is littered today with angry, bitter, and vengeful thoughts, emotions, and actions. Even our modern justice systems are preoccupied only with finding and proving guilt and dealing out retribution, doing little to remedy the tragic situation. Nevertheless, many individuals and groups have always sought ways to break this vicious cycle of recrimination. When faced with the question of what we can do to change the world for the better, one of the most radical and challenging answers is to begin forgiving others for what they have done. In this powerful and moving book, Prokofieff shows how the forces that lead to forgiveness can be developed consciously and freely. Without preaching the morality of forgiveness, he presents spiritual facts that speak for themselves. From Tsarist Russia and the concentration camps of Nazi Germany to the infighting during the early years of the Anthroposophical Society, the author offers striking examples of those who have been able to forgive frequently terrible crimes. He provides multilayered analyses and shows the beneficial consequences of each act of forgiveness. As he develops his theme, the importance of forgiving not simply for personal salvation but for the advancement of human evolution is revealed in all its healing truth. Now available in paperback, The Occult Significance of Forgiveness has been read and loved by thousands of readers for years. It is perhaps the most valuable, accessible, and succinct of Prokofieff s works on inner development."

The anthroposophical community seeks to lift human souls into supersensible realms so that they may enter the company of Angels. - Rudolf Steiner. Prokofieff traces the three stages of heavenly preparation of anthroposophy: the 'spiritual thunderstorm', the Michael School in the Sun sphere, and the 'imagination-based cultus' in the spiritual word nearest to the Earth. These events involved the nine spiritual hierarchies, associating them with the karma of the anthroposophical movement. Prokofieff elaborates the tasks of the Anthroposophical Society and indicates how these are connected with the spiritual hierarchies, the Michael movement, the Grail mysteries, the work of new Group Souls, and the Foundation Stone Meditation. He shows that the General Anthroposophical Society was, in an esoteric sense, created in order that human beings might learn to work with the Gods themselves. This is a vital booklet for anybody who cares deeply about the future of the Anthroposophical Society, or the future of mankind itself.

Aristotelians And Platonists

At the heart of this book is Rudolf Steiner’s “culmination in the twentieth century,” or the convergence of the working of Aristotelians and Platonists for the renewal of culture. And questions arise. Where is the whole of the School of Michael at present? How can we characterize and honor one and the other stream, and avoid stereotypes and misunderstandings? This work approaches the matter in its historical unfolding, in three successive steps, in which Steiner/Aristotle’s and Plato/Schröer’s incarnations form a thread. The first tableau opens up in the previous Age of Michael, in Greece, when Plato and Aristotle inaugurated the work of the two Michaelic streams. The second addresses the Middle Ages, and centers around the contrast between Alain de Lille and Thomas Aquinas, between the School of Chartres and Scholasticism. Steiner’s and Schröer’s life tasks in the nineteenth century form the prelude to the present. The heart of the book, and its longest section, looks at the present. It contrasts the working of Aristotelians and Platonists in the natural sciences, in psychology and in the social sciences. From the ground of extensive observation and characterization, it then turns to pressing questions. What can Platonists learn from Aristotelians? And how about the reverse? Starting from the example of individuals meeting across the streams, how can we extend this understanding so that it becomes an ongoing practice and a cultural concern? How can Michaelic individuals and institutions work in ways that honor the whole of the Michaelic movement?

The last 20 years have seen the development of a growing body of psychological literature on the long-neglected subject of forgiveness. Forgiveness has been widely regarded as a purely religious construct. However, recently it has been advocated in many different secular contexts as offering an appropriate and healthy means of release. The book continually engages the reader on both psychological and theological levels in a sustained dialogue that has not permeated any of the books already available on forgiveness.

Seldom in modern esoteric Christian scholarship do we find an author with the breadth of understanding to encompass the Eastern, Central and Western Grail traditions. John Barnwell, in The Arcana of the Grail Angel, synthesizes and illuminates the Grail tradition in the light of modern Spiritual Science and the works of its founder Rudolf Steiner. Steiner's Western esoteric stream of Christianity creates a backdrop of historical, philosophical, and religious archetypes that encompass the most comprehensive esoteric Christian Cosmology available. Add to this an extensive panoramic view of the historical, allegorical, and spiritual nature of the Grail, and together we find this refreshing work -- and immediately recognize a must read Anthroposophical classic like the works of Guenther Wachsmuth or Sergei O. Prokofieff. -- Douglas J. Gabriel, from the forward.
