Although Waldorf education was developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919 in Stuttgart, Germany, it is truly “education for the future” and has become largest private school movement in the world. To learn more about this forward-looking approach that comes out of a profound understanding of the developing child, see my talk and illustrated article on “The Wisdom of Waldorf: Educating for the Future” or the presentations by Daena Ross on how the Waldorf curriculum meets the needs of the growing child.
We also offer “The Waldorf Experience,” a collection of five videos professionally produced at a Waldorf school that address many of the questions parents have about Waldorf education and the understanding of human development that lies behind it.
Our children don’t expect us to be perfect, but our striving communicates to them that adults, as well as children, continue to grow. When we use the lessons being with children present us to heal and grow, we’re never at a loss for grist for the mill! Parenting is a path of inner development, so why not take more conscious advantage of it? These insights and perspectives can enhance your journey, as well as other titles we have listed under the category “Mothering and Spirituality.”
