"This anthroposophical movement is not an act of service to the Earth; this anthroposophical movement in its totality and in all its details is a service to the divine beings, a divine service." — Rudolf Steiner, 1924

In the twelve months following Sergei O. Prokofieff's death in 2014, Peter Selg gave a series of lectures in various cities on Prokofieff's work, each time focusing on a particular aspect of his writings. This volume (in English for the first time and commemorating the seventh anniversary of Sergei Prokofieff's death) gathers many of Peter Selg’s presentations.

"Anthroposophy was given to us in order to expand and spiritualize our consciousness, to strengthen our sense of responsibility, and to awaken the will to fulfill our tasks." — Sergei O. Prokofieff
