If there were ever a book to meditate upon during this crystallization period of reception to cosmic forces (January 15-February 15,) it would be Dennis Klocek’s most recent Sacred Agriculture: The Alchemy of Biodynamics (Lindisfarne Books, 2013.)
Stand forewarned: it is a book best read slowly aloud and perhaps with friends. Not that his language is difficult—the chapters are almost conversational. Any of us who have heard him speak can hear his voice, recognize his cadence, delighting in the characteristic flash of brilliance suddenly stepping from behind a genuine folksy style.
The matter of the book is truly evolutionary. This is why it needs discussion: it’s a new paradigm. Yes, Klocek is giving his own version of what he thinks Rudolf Steiner meant in the 1924 series of lectures that became the bible of Biodynamics, Agriculture Course: Birth of the Biodynamic Method (and this definitely is best to be read aloud with friends!)
Klocek develops Steiner’s work, making it accessible, but he also goes further, offering matrixes and meditations as guides and tools in developing an evolving consciousness that may well shift our relationship to ourselves, to each other, to the earth and cosmos.
It is a book well worth the study, a pulling back of the veil that separates the materialist thinking processes of so-called scientific methods from the development and use of grounded Imagination.
