About the Author

A creative jack-of-all trades, Patty Harpenau is an expressive artist, writer, trainer and personal coach.

In 1996 Ms. Harpenau opened her much-discussed art exhibition, “Jewish Document.” Fifty paintings told stories of the Old Testament as seen through the artistic eyes of a woman. Since then, Patty Harpenau has undertaken work for many leading organizations including ABN-AMRO bank, Amnesty International, SOS kinderdorpen, Unilever, Philips, Gamma and World Online. Her work has been exhibited throughout the world with shows in Israel, Germany, the United States of America, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Also in 1996 Ms. Harpenau received her license from the Chopra Centre of Well Being in America and completed spiritual coaching studies in India. Returning to the Netherlands she opened her own centre, The Life Foundation (, the Dutch sister company of the Chopra Centre. The Life Foundation helps people and businesses unravel secrets of success. It also helps people live and work in good health, in happiness and abundance, and enjoy stable relationships. Ms. Harpenau renders services both to organizations and private individuals. Her aim is to help people stay in strong mental shape and balance. Her workshops have introduced many clients to her unique approach.

In the autumn of 2008, The Life Codes was published – a special book addressing three world religions and seven life-changing codes that are the keys to creation, abundance, healing and love. The first edition sold out in two months. Never before had Ms. Harpenau received so much feedback on a book.

In the Netherlands, various work and study groups were set up spontaneously by enthusiasts learning from The Life Codes. With the worldwide copyrights now sold, Ms. Harpenau is travelling the world, helping to spread the wisdom of the life codes. The book is her passion because it offers a simple plan to help readers do exactly what they are supposed to in this life: show the beauty that is in you.

In November the book’s sequel, Benjamin’s Tree, will be published by Dutch publishers Ten Have. For more information, visit
