In 1924 - in response to questions about the depletion of soils and a
general deterioration of crops and livestock - Rudolf Steiner gave eight
lectures on the spiritual foundations for a renewal of agriculture. Based
on his suggestions and spiritual science, generations of farmers,
gardeners, viticulturist, and researchers developed biodynamics as a
healing, nurturing, holistic, ecological, organic, and spiritual approach
to a sustainable care of the Earth. Biodynamic methods consider the farm or
garden to be a self-contained organism, embedded in the living landscape of
the Earth, which is in turn part of a living, dynamic cosmos of vital,
spiritual energies.

Overview:
In 1924-in response to questions about the depletion of soils and a general
deterioration of crops and livestock-Rudolf Steiner gave eight lectures on
"the spiritual foundations for a renewal of agriculture." Based on his
suggestions and spiritual science, generations of farmers, gardeners,
viticulturist, and researchers developed biodynamics as a healing,
nurturing, holistic, ecological, organic, and spiritual approach to a
sustainable care of the Earth. Biodynamic methods consider the farm or
garden to be a self-contained organism, embedded in the living landscape of
the Earth, which is in turn part of a living, dynamic cosmos of vital,
spiritual energies. The aim is to increase the health and vitality of the
whole, including the farmer or gardener. The biodynamic practitioner
follows an alchemical, transformative path of working with the Earth
through the nine "homeopathic" preparations created by Steiner. What Is
Biodynamics? collects seven seminal lectures-four on developing a spiritual
perception of nature and three from his Agriculture Course, dealing with
the preparations. Hugh Courtney of the Josephine Porter Institute for
Applied Biodynamics contributes an informative, passionate, and visionary
introduction. Whether you are concerned with the quality of agriculture and
gardening in particular or have a broader interest in the ecological crises
facing us today, this book offers a transformative approach that can truly
change the way we live together on Earth.
