Meditative contemplations and instructions for deepening the art of healing were given in this program for medical students and young physicians. The cycle consists of eight lectures at Christmas 1923, and five lectures at Easter 1924. For Rudolf Steiner, it was to be a course on the humanizing of medicine. It is completely different in content and spirit from all other lectures on medicine. Nowhere else does Rudolf Steiner give this kind and amount of meditative material to deepen a professional activity as he does in this work. Also included are “The Bridge Lectures,” three lectures from Dec. 17-19, 1920, which were recommended by Rudolf Steiner as preparation for this course.
