In the midst of life we can find ourselves pulled in many different directions and it is easy to lose our sense of self. Is it possible to find and strengthen the inner core of who we are? Can we rediscover our inner equilibrium and tranquillity without retreating from the world?Since ancient times people have sought to re-establish inner balance by using specific meditative practices. The ‘soul exercises’ described in this booklet are derived from Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual philosophy, but also acknowledge the Buddhist tradition of mindfulness. Offering strategies to boost self-confidence, self-reliance, inner stability and concentration, they are intended for anyone seeking personal growth. The exercises are perfect for enriching everyday life, but can also help in times of stress, mental and emotional crisis, burn-out and in the context of psychiatric and psychosomatic therapies.In a series of short chapters illustrated with beautiful colour photos, this booklet offers accessible and easy-to-follow commentary and instructions on creating a path of inner development and balance.
