ASSYA TURGENIEV was born in Russia in 1890. As a child she already had the conviction that reincarnation was a spiritual truth. This was confirmed to her when she encountered the inspired ancient art at the Louvre in Paris at the age of 15. But it was only 7 years later that she encountered her spiritual teacher, Rudolf Steiner, through his books. She finally met him in person in 1912, while in her early twenties. Turgeniev spent many years at the Goetheanum in Dornach where she was a key pupil and co-worker of Steiner. She was married to the writer Andrei Byely.
