Heart Lectures: Three Lectures given at Threefold Farm, December, 1950
Heart Lectures asks the question: What is the greater significance of the heart? Pfeiffer sees it and explains it as an etheric organ, an inner sun. Its motion reflects the expansion and contraction of the cosmos itself. It doesn’t “pump” blood as we normally think, but etherizes it. And included in considering the heart is a description of the manifestations of different mystery streams in ancient cultures.
