Our Twelve Senses

How healthy senses refresh the soul

by Albert Soesman


Sensory overload can leave us feeling empty, or even thirsting for ever more stimulation. Here is a more balanced, health giving way of experiencing and understanding the human senses. The author starts by appreciating the rich tapestry of not just five, but twelve senses. These are the senses of touch, life, self-movement, balance, smell, taste, vision, temperature, hearing, language, the conceptual and the ego senses. This imaginative exploration into living with soul is based of Rudolf Steiner's research into the senses, and offers a lucid introduction to spiritual psychology.

"This is destined to be a classic work, a foundation for the development of spiritual psychology. Even more, meditating deeply on the content of this remarkable book can bring us to embodied, conscious, soul life that is receptive to the spiritual worlds."
Robert Sardello, PhD

"The simple act of nurturing the senses might do far more for healing the world than all our programs and interventions."
Cheryl L Sanders, School of Spiritual Psychology
