    Judith von Halle's Coronavirus Pandemic: Anthroposophical Perspectives

    Judith von Halle's Coronavirus Pandemic: Anthroposophical Perspectives

    In this episode Resistance Recovery founder and host Piers Kaniuka and pastor and activist Rev. Andy Stinson discuss Judith von Halle's book Coronavirus Pandemic: Anthroposophical Perspectives. Recorded on March 5, 2021.
    What lies at the root of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the worldwide pandemic it has caused, affecting the health and livelihoods of untold millions of people? What are the deeper, spiritual realities behind COVID-19 and the global turmoil it has left in its trail?
    In an effort to answer these queries Judith von Halle composed two letters in March 2020 based on her spiritual–scientific research. 
    Judith von Halle, born in Berlin in 1972, attended school in Germany and in the USA and subsequently studied architecture. She first encountered Anthroposophy in 1997, and began working as a member of staff at the Rudolf Steiner House in Berlin, where she also lectured; in addition she had her own architectural practice. In 2004 she received the stigmata, which transformed her life. Her first book was published in German in 2005, and she now works principally as a lecturer and author. She and her husband live in Berlin.You can order her books by visiting here.

Essential

Been listening to Pierre and Resistance Recovery for about a year now on another platform and recently discovered it in Podcast format. I am in recovery from addiction myself while also having the opportunity to work with those in early recovery. For anyone in a similar position to me, or even remotely interested in the topics RR covers, this is essential listening. Piers and his guests explore the fringe voices and ideas of the recover movement and shed light on ideas that are truly remarkable. Thank you Piers for invigorating my mind and motivation! -Jon D.

Brilliant!

Resistance Recovery podcast is a no brainer for those who are looking to deepen their understanding of addiction and recovery. It’s obvious the host, Piers, does an amazing job of research which makes for a rich conversation between him and the guests on his show. All of which is to the benefit of the listener. I would advise all those who are affected be addiction to listen to Resistance Recovery. Great work!!
