“Because I felt that he knew how things were, I said simply, ‘I will stay with you.’ Then he said significant things to me that I was not to repeat. A very ancient karma existing between him and me was renewed. It was not until many years later that I first realized the significance of that meeting.” — Ita Wegman

Ita Wegman was one of Rudolf Steiner’s most important coworkers, collaborating with him principally in the field of Medicine—coauthoring the landmark book Extending Practical Medicine and heading the Medical Section of the School of Spiritual Science. In the background of that external work, however, was an esoteric connection. In this seminal work of karma research, the authors attempt to illumine, sensitively and with responsibility, that spiritual and karmic history.

Written for members of the Anthroposophical Society, this book is a profound study of a series of various incarnations linked to the figures of Ita Wegman and Rudolf Steiner. Spread over six different lifetimes, they range from Gilgamesh and Eabani (Enkidu) in Uruk, ancient Chaldea, to the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland, the twentieth-century setting for the world center of Anthroposophy. Based on copious historical research, verbal statements, and spiritual insight, this rare and valuable work features many illustrations and facsimiles of documents and personal letters.
