Using the spiritual truth of the fourfold human being as a model for organizing thoughts in the creative process leads to living thinking, which produces a living form, for example, lecture, essay, poem, play, book. In addition to affecting the head and logical mind, the inner structure of these forms based on living, wave-like thinking can affect the heart forces of the reader or listener, hence the term “Heart Logik.” By bringing content and form into an organic and harmonious connection the logik of the heart is created.

This type of writing is not new. It can be discerned in the Book of Job, Matthew Gospel, the discourses of Plato, and Goethe’s description of the archetypal plant to give just a few examples. Rudolf Steiner consciously and deliberately used heart-logik forms in his books lectures, architecture, Waldorf School lesson plans and curricula, as well as Eurythmy forms.

The Philosophy of Freedom has been described as “the training manual for living form.” Mark Riccio will help us explore the many living forms in this book. Many of us focus on content and

ignore form. This workshop will show us that form is important because it carries the content into the heart. We will come away with a deepened appreciation not only of what Rudolf Steiner wrote, but also of how he wrote it.

Some of the works covered: a Blake poem, Lord’s Prayer, a Bible chapter, and the Philosophy of Freedom selections.

Please bring colored pencils (blue, green, red, yellow, and a lead pencil) to the workshop as we will be sketching Rudolf Steiner’s texts. Copies of the texts will be handed out.


Mark Riccio grew up in Manhattan and graduated from the Rudolf Steiner School. He studied Anthroposophy with Frank Teichmann in Stuttgart, Germany. He also worked intensively with Rudolf Steiner’s heart-thinking meditation and writing with Florin Lowndes author of The Enlivening the Chakra of the Heart. Mark completed several booklets including his dissertation on Waldorf Education in the light of heart thinking, and his most recent book based on the work of George O’Neil and Florin Lowndes’ work: The Logik of the Heart: the organic templates of spiritual writers, Rudolf Steiner, and The Philosophy of Freehood (published in 2016, available at Amazon.com). He currently lives in Honolulu.
