Founded in 1947 Freies Geistesleben works in close cooperation with the Rudolf Steiner (Waldorf) Schools and is the major publisher worldwide of literature on Steiner education and Anthroposophy. A spiritual understanding of human development provides the major impetus for picture books, biographical narratives, fiction and non-fiction.

Myths, legends, and folk tales play a major role in our children’s publications. Their imaginative language gives archetypal expression to human development in which environment children can grow healthily to meet the world. So books have ranged from classical legends, such as those of ancient India or Greece, to German and other European folk tales.
