The Human Life is a contribution to biography work that explores the various chapters of a human lifetime in the context of an anthroposophical world view. Cosmic evolution, destiny, and karma are discussed as they relate to one’s life and to the lives of others. The Human Life is a helpful guide to have as one travels the path of self-knowledge and tries to understand the encounters one meets – and possibly gets tripped up by – along the way.
The enclosed Life-Chart Poster lets one see aspects of the physical, life, soul, and ego, as well as the patterns that show themselves in this incarnation of yourself. The Human Life has previously been described as being an accessible introduction to anthroposophy.
