School of the Elemental Beings asks: Is the world around us alive or is it dead?
If the widely held belief were true – that matter is the basis of all we know as reality – then life would make no sense. The world would essentially be dead – an absurd notion! What we know as life would be an unexplainable phenomenon, an astounding but accidental miracle. Does this sound familiar? In the undeniable presence of life, this belief can never truly make sense. It demands faith. Thus materialism is superstition. If we dare to entertain the notion – albeit akin to a modern heresy – that life (being), not matter, is the foundation of what we know as reality, then both matter and life make perfect sense.
Karsten Massei – who is exceptionally sensitive to the invisible beings of life that surround us always and everywhere – offers a gentle but powerful call, from those beings themselves, to discard superstition and begin to awake to the reality of life.
As beings of the living Earth, we have certain responsibilities, too long neglected. The Earth is not an abstraction – a dead “rock” hurtling through space – but a living being. The elemental beings, who are intimately, intrinsically connected to the living Earth and to the living human race, suffer from our indifference, egoism, and ignorance of life, but they have much to teach us and patiently await our attention.

Franziska van der Geest was born in 1959 in Basel, Switzerland. Since her childhood she has engaged in intensive contact with nature beings and beings of the higher hierarchies. This enables her, on the one hand, to have deep knowledge of the many-sided connections in the sphere of life. On the other hand, out of this developed extensive biographical and business counseling work. Since 2001 she has traveled extensively through Europe and the Americas. These journeys are dedicated to the research of the spiritual geography of landscapes and to the healing of the Earth. During her travels, Franziska paints. In her paintings, in which she captures the astral and etheric movements related to places and landscapes, the suprasensory happenings there become visible. The wishes of the beings connected with each respective location are expressed. The pictures contain messages for human beings. Above all, these are beings of the elemental world that support the process of painting. On the paper, colored lines and forms are shown to her, which she then draws and paints. Over the years, a rich and varied work has come into being in this way.
