Description

A collection of Steiner’s lectures introduced by H Courtney.
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.’ What Is Biodynamics? collects seven of Steiner’s 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.
Hugh Courtney, a veteran and librarian, discovered Steiner’s agriculture course in 1975 at a health food store in College Park, Maryland. This led him to Josephine Porter, who was making biodynamic preparations according to Steiner’s indications. He apprenticed under Josephine and, when she died in 1984, took up her work. He created the Josephine Porter Institute in Woolwine, VA, where he has been making and selling preparations (six compost preparations and 3 others), editing the newsletter Applied Biodynamics, and consulting on all aspects of the biodynamic approach.
