Jaap van der Wal, MD, PhD

After medical school Dr. van der Wal specialized in anatomy and embryology and lectured in these disciplines at the medical schools of the universities of Utrecht and Maastricht (The Netherlands) and at various paramedical training colleges (such as for physiotherapy, nursing and midwifery.)  Jaap received a Ph. D. for a dissertation on human proprioception (sense of posture and locomotion) and this prompted his main interest in the development of the human embryo along with evolution and genetics, and all that in context with the image of man and philosophy of science. He is an ‘embryologist on the search for spirit.’   Dr. van der Wal has  published many articles on these subjects and was co-editor of the report ’Is there future in our DNA?’ (1993) and  ’And then there was DNA’ (1999).

Important sources of inspiration for Jaap are the anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner and the work of the Dutch professor in phenomenological history, Jan Hendrik van den Berg and other phenomenological philosophers, along with applying the phenomenological approach of Goethe — bridging the chasm between spirituality and the humanities on the one hand and positivistic natural science on the other hand. He employs this method on the domain of the prenatal development of the human being and offers seminars all over the world for medical professionals, various therapists as well as laypersons interested in learning what we actually are doing when we are embryo. On the search for spirit in our (embryonic) existence.
