Spiritual development is a daunting phrase, but spirituality can be an everyday aspect our lives, helping us in difficult moments.

Using this down-to-earth approach, the author presents six exercises which will help us take charge of our life in day-to-day situations, as well as in our relationships. These exercises bring us closer to our selves, and to the world around us, and they offer a balance between action and openness, self-control and feelings, thinking and trust.

Joop van Dam builds on the ideas of Rudolf Steiner in this concise, practical book.


'I am confident that those familiar with Rudolf Steiner's work will find Joop van Dam's insightful commentary on the subsidiary exercises refreshingly helpful, a loving gesture of true companionship on the pilgrimage of weaving outer destinies and inner destinations with deep gratitude. Those unfamilar with Rudolf Steiner's work may experience encountering a new landscape, perhaps feeling drawn to find out more about Steiner's How to Know Higher Worlds and An Outline of Esoteric Science.'
-- Camphill Correspondence


Until his retirement, Joop van Dam was a medical practitioner in Haarlem, the Netherlands. He is active in education in the Anthroposophical Society in the Netherlands.
