This book will open your life to the surprising depth of the simple and ordinary. For most of us, life is often a humdrum course of the same-old and the nothing-new. We may dream about running away to exotic lands or retreating to distant monasteries, but the whirligig of life won’t let us out of its clutches.

Stairway of Surprise has become a new classic of anthroposophic spiritual practice. Dr. Michael Lipson re-visions Rudolf Steiner’s six basic exercises to make them relevant to our lives today. With examples drawn from world literature and from his psychotherapy practice, Lipson shows how these exercises stretch from common events in daily life to the depths of spiritual experience. The path of meditation offered here is experiential from start to finish: not something to think only, but something to live.

By practicing these exercises for a few minutes each day, we can discover the surprise in the universe, which is usually hidden from us by our stale, habitual attitudes.

Step-by-step version of the 6 basic exercises as Westernized by Rudolf Steiner and
brought forward to politically correct 'today' language/concept. Concepts are not
hard to understand and the examples are ones we can relate to in this fast-forward
Fantastic way to open the door to greater consciousness. Well written. A great read. If you do the simple exercises your life will change for the better. It's that simple.
This is an inspiring book! It is easy to read and understand, and the author effectively describes Steiner's soul exercises in modern day terms. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking a paradigm shift!
This is a loving, enlightened, literate, shrewd, poetic, helpful, centering book. I highly recommend it.
The book I received was lightly used and only cost me 1 cent plus $4 postage. It was a satisfying purchase. Thank you.
This book offers an extremely accessible entry into the path of cognitive/meditative development. Lipson provides a refreshingly laid back approach that inspires one to get started and have fun with it.
Along with Kuhlewind's "From Normal to Healthy", I'd say this is one of the best descriptions of this particular path.
