Practicing Karma

Further training in working with Karma 

In English 


We are pleased to invite you to a modular program of ‘Biography-Anthroposophy Work with Karma’, based on the unique knowledge of Karma brought to the world by Rudolf Steiner.

The vast knowledge presented by Steiner was investigated and developed into a practical biography-work method at ‘Hotam School’, as part of the training of Biographical Counselling & the Spiritual Science of Anthroposophy in Israel. It was inspired by the research of the late spiritual teacher, Mr. Tzvi Briger.

This curriculum modular program is designated for graduates and students of Biography Counseling that have completed at least 2 full years of studies in any relevant school worldwide. The program is also open to Anthroposophical therapists from various fields who wish to deepen their understanding of their own karma and the karma of their clients. Additionally, it offers practical tools for working with and investigating karma, either privately or in group settings. The program is also available to individuals interested in studying karma for their personal development.

The karma studies modular program includes:

5 Modules + Digital On-Line course: 4 sessions of 5 hours each Module, on Sundays. Via Zoom.

The comprehensive modular program will be extended over two years.

  • Following the first Module we will continue, in small groups with personal guidance by interns from ‘Hotam’ School, deepening into the same subject in the – Digital On-line course: ‘Essential Fulfillment of the Karmic Imperative’. This course will last  three months.
