12 really essential Qualities

By Valerie Taylor, July 2018

This book uses ‘12 essential qualities’, or values, to go on a journey in parenting children. The author encourages us to firstly look at the habit patterns we have, both of word and deed, and how appropriate they are and, where necessary, to transform these in order to create a world that is more nurturing for the children in our care and as a result of these changes less stressful for us. [more]

Gary Lachman might be known to some as the author of a biography on Rudolf Steiner, to others as the founding member of the rock band Blondie. He is the author of a number of biographies and books that are concerned with western esoteric traditions and philosophies. In The Caretakers of the Cosmos the author basically asks the question why we humans are here on earth. While he does not claim to have the ultimate answer, he points out that scientists offer no satisfying explanations either. Modern science has us believe that we are ‘the chance product of an accidental universe’.
