This readable little book was very popular in Germany in the 1980s and is now out in English for a new generation. Ursula Burkhard was born in Basel in 1930. Blind from birth she was distanced from ‘real’ things she could not see and instead she experienced gnomes and other elementals. As a child she experienced them easily, but the adult world was critical of what didn’t fit with Christianity. The teachings of Rudolf Steiner helped her to reconnect with those companions in the invisible world. Ultimately one gnome called Karlik arrived saying she could not live alone, and he guided and advised her all the way through her adult career.
