Coenraad van Houten has extended his path of adult education called “Destiny Learning.” Based on Rudolf Steiner’s work, it is a threefold way of working with karma: understanding, transforming, and ordering. This approach opens new vistas for healing relationships and conflicts, for developing creative faculties for community building, and for forming initiatives based on freedom. The author broadens and deepens his previous work on this theme, showing that learning from destiny, as well as awakening the forces of will, are continuing processes. His practical advice can be applied directly to everyday life.

Although this book develops and completes the themes of van Houten’s earlier works—Practising Destiny and Awakening the Will—this book also stands on its own. In this volume, the author explains and extends crucial aspects of his threefold path of “destiny learning.”

Anyone who wants to take hold of personal development will find many nuggets of spiritual wisdom in this short book, which is based on a lifetime’s work.
