Rudolf Steiner’s First Encounter with the Dead

Steiner Book's on the Dead

Dear Friends,

On this date in 1925, Rudolf Steiner crossed the threshold of death.

Rudolf Steiner’s first experience with the dead was when he was still a young boy. Sitting alone in the waiting room of the railroad station where his father was station master. All of a sudden a woman appeared in the doorway, comes into the center of the room speaking and gesturing words which might be interpreted as: “Try to do as much as you can for me — both now and later!” She stayed for a moment and then disappeared into the other side of the room.

A few days later – Rudolf Steiner found out that a close family relation had committed suicide in the very hour when the figure had appeared to the him. Rudolf Steiner spoke about how this relative’s spirit made such an impression on his soul.*

Rudolf Steiner’s indications for how to work with the dead revolutionizes the way we can approach our loved ones who have died while in this incarnation.

Grateful for this man!
