This book follows Karl Koenig's spiritual journey from his early years to the end of his life. Through the words of his diaries, in which his battles with health and his impatient temperament are recorded with merciless honesty, we can follow his inner path that led to profound insights into the nature of children with special needs. His personal wrestlings and innate spirituality laid the foundation for his work in the Camphill Schools and Villages. Includes facsimile reproductions of some of Koenig's original diary pages. About the Karl Koenig Archive: Karl Koenig, the founder of Camphill, was a prolific lecturer and writer on a wide range of subjects from anthroposophy and Christology through social questions and curative education to science and history. The Karl Koenig Archive are working on a programme of publishing these works over the coming years.

'The book is a little gem, of potential interest to anyone with an anthroposophical background but especially to those working within a Camphill setting...there are so many quotable entries that it is hard to decide which to bring forward for illustration...This little volume is rich in substance and will give readers lasting nourishment. It will also leave them eagerly looking forward to the further publications from Konig's diaries and papers which are currently being prepared.' -- Crispian Villeneuve, Camphill Correspondence
