Course Description

Teachers are planters of seeds. To carry out this task is to be the heart and soul of Waldorf education. In this course Merwin will speak out of his extensive experience to give the essentials of Waldorf education, including the stages of child development and how they are met by the curriculum. Topics such as meditation for teachers and storytelling will be covered.  Participants will come to a deep understanding of what the task of teaching requires of us and ways of finding the courage to undertake it.
