“We are far more than we think we are.” A profound statement that slowly sinks in as a reality during the study of the drawings and the texts which become the material for the stories of all the members of humankind.

Introduced through the autobiography of a female physician practicing in the Columbia County region of rural upstate New York, this is a book where the reader is invited to accompany the journey each human being will undertake into the earthly life and the wisdoms learned in the process of “becoming.”

Filled with gratitude for this testimony of hope in the miracle that is human and the attention it draws to past scholars whose knowing was profound but often ignored, this book serves as a reference for future students who find themselves ready for the combined study of natural and spiritual science.

“Interpreting the final drawing from the Child Artist is for me the beginning of an exploration into the meaning of this exquisite gift he placed in my hands. As in the Gnostic myth, it involves a polarity. The Good and the Evil present themselves in their balanced capacity. Humanity meets the devouring monster and can slay it only after many painful sojourns into the depth of the Earth. On the horizontal plane, the domain of darkness, cacophony, and false gods, the overpowering jaws can annihilate me. It attacks my life force; it comes to me in the guise of a huge head with ferocious teeth; its small triangular body is chaotic, and the limbs are rudimentary. Is this me? The question lingers: Who can be identified as the Child Artist? Still in our midst, how can he be met? Do we want to pave a way to better listening and understanding?” (from the book)

“In the tradition of Paracelsus, Goethe, Novalis, Hahnemann, and Steiner, Dr. Lups weaves alchemy out of the art of an anonymous, brilliant six-year-old “Child Artist” into a tapestry of symbolism, healing, and wisdom—including many surprises—such as an esoteric explanation of the 4-H Club. A magical Text!”Peter Lamborn Wilson, author, Green Hermeticism: Alchemy and Ecology


“Anna Lups’s marvelous memoir traces a pathway of cure, from health of the outer person to the inner esoterics of the soul, from allopathy to anthroposophic medicine. A lengthy sojourn through archetypal research to spiritual alchemy, she is guided by the questions ‘Who am I?’ ‘Where are my beginning and my end?’ and provides inspiration in the art of living to readers of all pursuits. A work of immense creativity.”David Appelbaum, PhD, former editor of Parabola Magazine, Professor of Philosophy, SUNY New Paltz


Dr. Anna Lups lives in Columbia County, New York, where she has practiced private medicine continuously since 1967. Her background as a cardiologist and family practitioner has allowed her to experience a wide breadth of clinical care motifs. In 1979 she began the anthroposophic extension of medicine and continues to grow her understanding of patient care and alternative holistic medicine.
