NOTE: Thank you for your interest in this workshop. We have reached our space capacity and registration is now closed; walk-ins will not be permitted. Our next Waldorf Weekend takes place July 22-24.
Informative and lively, Sunbridge Waldorf Weekends are designed to provide an in-depth and experiential survey of the basis and basics of Waldorf Education. This popular workshop includes a discussion of the Waldorf curriculum and how it relates to the growing child, an exploration of the anthroposophical ideas that serve as the underpinnings of the Waldorf impulse, and a look at Rudolf Steiner’s insights into human development. In addition to presentation and conversation, you’ll enjoy hands-on artistic activities common to the Waldorf experience, such as music, movement, and drawing, and will have time to ask your most pressing questions. Workshop participants leave with a deeper understanding of and a greater appreciation for Waldorf Education and a most memorable—and fun!—learning experience.
Sunbridge Waldorf Weekends are open to all, but are especially relevant for new and prospective Waldorf community members, including teachers, parents, grandparents, staff, and board members. Past attendees have also included students of education, public and private school teachers, and homeschooling parents.
This was one of the single most wonderful weekends in my life. I came with the intention of learning more about Waldorf Education. I am leaving with a feeling of a shifting of my soul.
