As levels of stress increase in modern life, many are turning to the practice of meditation as a way to find harmony and tranquility of soul and to awaken dormant inner spiritual forces.

In this concise and practical book—based on the path of meditative knowledge developed by Rudolf Steiner—Jörgen Smit removes the mystique that surrounds meditation practice. He shows how to form meditative images and how to control thoughts and volition through simple exercises.

Working with Smit’s suggestions, we can begin to experience the powers of our higher self, and we can prepare for the ultimate encounter with the spiritual presence of the higher self of all humanity.
