The poor quality of water, as well as its restricted supply and availability, is one of the biggest challenges of our time, with presently two-fifth's of the world's population unable to find adequate fresh water for essential usage. Over 40 years' research has been carried out on the positive effects that rhythms and specific water flow has on water's capacity to support life. Energizing Water presents research to the general and professional reader at a time when interest in finding solutions to water's huge worldwide problems is growing rapidly. Three aspects determine water quality: its chemical constituents (including its oxygen levels); its organic aspects (with the danger of contamination by effluent, pathogens and algae); and its 'energetic' nature. The latter facet has been recognized from time immemorial by traditional societies, who have developed their own sciences in relation to water quality, using terms such as prana and chi for energy. Now, through the introduction of quantum physics into the life sciences, modern science is beginning to accept this concept, measuring energy as light emission. Research into energetic water quality - and particularly into the creation of molded surfaces that support biological purification of the chemical and organic elements, as well as enlivening the energetic attributes - goes back to George Adams' and John Wilkes' pioneering work in the 1960's. The invention of Flowform technology in 1970 carried this research further, providing the world with one of the first modern-day, biomimicry eco-technologies. This creative technology applies nature's best methods to produce extraordinary results, and this book outlines the background story on research and application of the Flowform method today.

Why does water always take a winding course in streams and rivers? Do common principles and rhythms underlie its movement - whether it be in the sea, in a plant, or even in the blood of a human being? In this seminal and thought-provoking work, the laws apparent in the subtle patterns of water in movement are shown to be the same as those perceptible in the shaping of bones, muscles and a myriad of other forms in nature. Fully illustrated, Sensitive Chaos reveals the unifying forces that underlie all living things. The author observes and explains such phenomena as the flight of birds, the formation of internal organs such as the heart, eye and ear, as well as mountain ranges and river deltas, weather and space patterns, and even the formation of the human embryo.

Austrian naturalist Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) was far ahead of his time. From his unusually detailed observations of the natural world, he pioneered a completely new understanding of how nature works. He also foresaw, and tried to warn against, the global waste and ecological destruction of our age. This book describes and explains Schauberger's insights in contemporary, accessible language. His remarkable discoveries -- which address issues such as sick water, ailing forests, climate change and, above all, renewable energy -- have dramatic implications for how we should work with nature and its resources.

In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in organic and biodynamic produce. Although once marginal and 'alternative', escalating concerns about the environment, health, food quality and animal welfare have brought organics into mainstream consciousness. Biodynamics, a unique development of the organic approach, does not narrowly focus on agricultural techniques. It was conceived as a new way of thinking about farming, nutrition and the world of nature, allowing for a revitalized relationship with the living soil, the elemental world and the cosmos. Originating from a series of eight lectures given by Dr Rudolf Steiner in 1924, biodynamics broadens the outlook of agriculture and the science behind it, leading to a holistic perspective that incorporates astronomical rhythms and unique preparations for plants and earth. The author describes the foundations on which not only biodynamics but also the wider organic movement is based. He builds bridges between mainstream science and Steiner's insights, making it easier for the wider organic and ecological movement to approach biodynamic concepts and practise.This book has much to offer to the beginner as well as to those already involved with biodynamics. Its broad range of topics - including the ecology of the farm organism, food quality and nutrition, community supported agriculture, planetary influences, seed quality, and the vitality of water - contribute to a deeper understanding of the subject. The author is also concerned to promote innovation so that biodynamics moves with the times. An appendix includes details for contacting various elements of the biodynamic world.

This book addresses in detail the subject of vibrational waters: waters that flow in locations of high energy and that can be used in a similar way to homeopathic and Bach flower remedies to promote mental and physical wellbeing. Some of them are also called "Marian Waters" or "Holy Waters", when they originate in a place dedicated to the Catholic faith, yet they are all considered vibrational remedies in every respect, as they have specific energy frequencies. Available in many countries, these waters can be found in shrines or temples of various religions, but also in archaeological or naturalist sites: from Lourdes to the Japanese temple of Kibune, from Fatima and Santa Lucia to Machu Picchu, from the River Ganges and River Jordan to grottos and monasteries. 50 different waters have been studied, using techniques such as dowsing and kinesiological testing. Each water is accurately described in an individual Descriptive Profile, that contains a large amount of information on the curative properties of the water for emotional and mental problems, how it can improve the related physical disturbances, its special uses (for example, application on the body or purification of the environment), the meridians (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and chakras on which it acts and the analogy with Bach flower remedies. Other chapters are dedicated to the ways of using vibrational waters, the procedure to faithfully reproduce them and the methods adopted to discover their characteristics. The final chapter reports some Summarizing Tables to find the most appropriate waters in relation to different problems. The book also contains: 38 photos of the places where the sacred springs are located; the pattern of the regular decagon to enhance and reproduce vibrational remedies; other illustrations about dowsing, kinesiological testing, aura and chakras.

Herbs in Nutrition

The term "nutrition" in this book has a broader meaning than the normal, formal scientific and material sense of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, etc.; it is here meant in a far wider holistic way, taking all the senses into account also the environment in which we live and how we grow our food. Yes, the way we grow our food, is of the greatest importance for our nutrition, along with where it originates, from an animal, fish, mushroom, plant, salt. For example if we take the sugar from the plant, it makes a real difference whether sugar is extracted from the root, stem, leaf, fruit or flower (honey) as to how it nourishes the human being. The sugar from root beet, feeds the head and thinking, whereas the stem and leaf cane sugar feeds the lung, circulatory system and emotions, and the fruit, flower and honey, feeds the muscles, limbs, and will, etc. The same is true of other foods. Here it can be seen how subtle and delicate these processes are, and consequently if the way the food is grown, is mineralised and filled with subtle poisons, this brings the whole plant down into a sub-root state. Then difficulties and health problems can arise when the true "nutrition" is thrown out of balance or is laced with minerals or artificials. No matter whether they enter the food on the farm and garden or in processing, preserving, colouring, flavouring or cooking to the point it enters the mouth, the food can be thrown out of balance. Even if outwardly it appears balanced, and complete.

The Mystery of Emerging Form

Imma von Eckardstein’s Drawings of the Constellations: A Biological Perspective

Contemporary science views our planet as an insignificant speck of dust in the vastness of space, with its four kingdoms as a random assemblage of atoms. Yvan Rioux presents a radically different perspective, demonstrating an indissoluble relationship between Heaven and Earth. Over aeons of existence, the four kingdoms have manifested a creative power that perpetually brings forth new expressions. With the goal of bridging science and spirit, Rioux helps revive the old intuitive awareness of an intimate communion between the outer perceptible life of nature, the inner life of the soul and the majestic spiritual formative forces that preside as architects – an organic whole where all levels co-evolve. The earth, nesting in its solar system, is connected with the Milky Way and the twelve constellations. The impact of the stars as an influence on human behaviour has been known for millennia. In the original edition of Rudolf Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul, twelve illustrations of the constellations, made by Imma von Eckardstein, were published for the first time. These intuitive drawings differ greatly from the traditional ones, but Steiner stressed their importance for our modern consciousness. The images invite us to comprehend formative forces in their various guises in the kingdoms of nature. By exploring the gifts of each constellation, the author uses Imma’s drawings as a template to elucidate the emergence of twelve basic forms as the common denominators of all creatures, leading eventually towards the human form. ‘The [new] images of the zodiac constellations represent actual experiences connected with the waking and sleeping of particular spiritual beings. In these images we have a knowledge that needs to be renewed at this time…’ – Rudolf Steiner (1912)

This book’s main objective is to decipher for the reader the main processes in the atmosphere and the quantification of air pollution effects on humans and the environment, through first principles of meteorology and modelling/measurement approaches. The understanding of the complex sequence of events, starting from the emission of air pollutants into the atmosphere to the human health effects as the final event, is necessary for the prognosis of potential risk to humans from specific chemical compounds and mixtures of them. It fills a gap in the literature by providing a solid grounding in the first principles of meteorology and air pollution, making it particularly useful for undergraduate students. Its broad scope makes it a valuable text in many related disciplines, containing a comprehensive and integrated methodology to study the first principles of air pollution, meteorology, indoor air pollution, and human exposure. Problem-solving exercises help to reinforce concepts.

This book consists of essays that stand on their own but are also loosely connected. Part I documents how numbers and geometry arise in several cultural contexts and in nature: scale, proportion in architecture, ancient geometry, megalithic stone circles, the hidden pavements of the Laurentian library, the shapes of the Hebrew letters, and the shapes of biological forms. Part II shows how many of the same numbers and number sequences are related to the modern mathematical study of numbers, dynamical systems, chaos, and fractals.
