Practicing Karma

Further training in working with Karma 

In English 


We are pleased to invite you to a full year 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. Inspired by the research of the spiritual teacher, Mr. Tzvi Briger

This curriculum year is designated for graduates and students of Biography Counseling that have completed at least 2 full years of studies in any relevant school worldwide, as well as for Anthroposophical therapists in the different fields, that feel the need to deepen their understanding of their personal karma, and the karma of their clients, and also want to obtain practical tools to work with and investigate Karma, privately or with groups.

The school year includes:

* 5 Modules: 4 sessions of 4.5 hours each, on weekends.

* On-line course: ‘Essential Fulfillment of the Karmic Imperative’ in small groups with personal guidance by interns from ‘Hotam’ School.

The studies will combine theoretical knowledge, experiential exercises (individual, pairs & group), and art assignments, and will be accompanied by workbooks.

Graduates of the full year program, will receive a certificate for: ‘Further Training in Karma Work’, recognized by ‘Hotam’ School in Israel (‘Hotam’ School is recognized by the International Trainers Forum for Biographical Counseling – ITF).

Participants interested in a partial program, will be required to take at least the first module entitled: ‘Essential Fulfillment of the Karmic Imperative’, which is a fundamental basis for comprehending Karma.
