By Rudolf Steiner

GA 318

On-line since: 30th June, 2013

To meet inner frailty with truly adequate concepts, Steiner describes in this book specific inner structures of both health and unhealthy states that escape ordinary perception. Addressing topics ranging from sleepwalking to psychosis to the visions of St. Teresa of Avila, he suggests how to approach the misalignments of nonstandard inner structures and other psychic difficulties with what he calls “pastoral medicine” — a truly holistic healing that can bring body and soul together, and help them function in the most effective and powerful way.

These eleven lectures were given in Dornach from September 8 to September 18, 1924. In the collected edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled Das Zusammenwirken von Ärzten und Seelsorgen: Pastoral-Medizinischer Kurs (vol. 318 in the Bibliographic Survey).

The lectures in this volume, translated from the German by Gladys Hahn, were previously published by Anthroposophic Press under the title Pastoral Medicine: The Collegial Working of Doctors and Priests (1987).

This volume is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
