Coming to possess a distinct form. In Anthroposophical doctrine,we gradually incarnate various members of our being. The etheric body incarnates around age 7,for instance,and the astral body around age 14. The goal of Waldorf schooling can be described as assisting children with their incarnations. Also in Anthroposophical doctrine,we reincarnate many times; each incarnation (which consists of several minor incarnations) is just one of our many lives.
