As human beings, what is our true relationship to the animals on earth? What is our responsibility to our fellow creatures? Douglas Sloan explores these and other questions in this important book on the human-animal connection. His explorations are based on personal experience and wide-ranging research into the work of Rudolf Steiner and others, including scientist students of the inner life of animals and committed defenders of animal wellbeing. Rudolf Steiner describes how from the beginning of creation humans and animals have been united in deep kinship. A loss of the sense of this human–animal connection has resulted in an immense animal suffering the world over. Especially in their suffering, the animals now pose for the modern human being many pressing and perplexing questions. Are the animals conscious? Do they have feelings like ours? Do they experience pain? Do the animals have a spiritual reality and experience? Do the animals have souls and selves? Do the animals have capacities for cognitive intelligence, emotional empathy, language, and memory? Is there a crucial difference between the human and the animal, a basic difference in kind, or only a difference in degree? Do animals have rights? Are we justified in using the animals as we wish—eating them, hunting them, experimenting on them? Rudolf Steiner presents a vision of the ultimate redemption of the animals from their suffering. What is the nature of this redemption? What is our responsibility in making it happen? In exploring these and related questions with the help of Rudolf Steiner’s work and that of others on the issue, we can begin to see the importance in our time of our relating to the animals in a completely new way—a relationship that understands and respects the animals’ inner spiritual being, and one that requires a deep grasp of our own spiritual being in relation to theirs. In this book, Douglas Sloan seeks to help us toward this new relationship with the animals, both in concept and in everyday action.

As a young child of the Oglala Lakota Sioux, Black Elk had been given a mighty vision which would lead him on a personal journey that lasted his entire life. Although Black Elk's vision was a prophetic message telling the terrible future of his tribe, it also held positive aspects that must be reclaimed. It is through this reclamation that the guiding beacons given to him reveal an ancient pathway woven into the images of the West. By exploring Black Elk's eyewitness account of the crucial events of that time, the author discovered a series of metaphorical footprints that show us the way toward inner strength and a balanced life...125 years later. To help with an interpretation of Black Elk's account, the author invoked the insight of Joseph Campbell, one of the world's foremost authorities on societal ideologies. Through his understanding of symbol and metaphor Campbell was able to examine the metaphorical footprints and provide us with a twenty-first century "spin" that a simple man generations before could only imagine. This book offers a new look at Black Elk's footprints and together with the insight of Joseph Campbell, presents an inward path to the positive forces within each of us, waiting for discovery.

The Redemption of Professor EvelynThe Redemption of Professor Evelyn off ers both a discussion of the unseen spirit world and a parable of the supernatural as it affects one individual, Professor Horace Evelyn. Mankind, in all generations and cultures, has debated the existence of spirits and angelic beings. Weve wondered if angels and demons actually are myth or reality. A belief in evil spirits has always been inherent in the cultures of man. For example, the exterior facades of cathedrals built during medieval times incorporated gargoyles in their design in the belief that the ugly, grotesque features of their carved faces would scare away evil or unclean spirits. In contrast, angels are good spirits. Th e Creator endowed them with innate, independent life. They were given immortality. Spirits live forever, because they dont have a body to wear down, sustain damage or injury, or die. Enter Professor Horace Evelyn, who is being treated for severe schizophrenia. Professor Evelyn has not been able to fi nd a medical cure, but he soon realizes that he does not need a doctorhe needs an exorcist. His soul has become the site of a cataclysmic struggle between the forces of good and evil. Th is story is not about regaining his mental health; its about the salvation of his soul.
