Turning Straw Into Gold

Biography & Karma On-line studies in the Community

September 2021 June 2022

Dear friends around the world,
We would like to invite you to join us once a month to study and practice together topics related to Biography and Karma.
The topics  were developed in ‘Hotam’ School for Biographical Counselling and are based on the book ‘Turning Straw into Gold’ ,written by Orna Ben Dor.
The book describes biographical cases and the biographical-karmic approach to them. Over the years many tools for working with biography and karma have been developed in our school that are suitable for working with clients.  The approach to each of the 20 cases presented in the book is based on a different tool.
In each  meeting we will study a different tool. Together we will experience and explore it through biographical events presented by the participants of the Community Studies from their own biography, as well as cases  from their work with clients.

Time: Once a month, on Sundays, 9am-12pm Eastern time (USA& Canada), 15:00-18:00 European time, via Zoom.

Language: the studies will be in English (no translation).

* Sessions will be recorded and sent to the participants.
