Waldorf Weekend: Foundations and Fundamentals of Waldorf Education from Early Childhood through High School

Friday, June 19, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - Sunday, June 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm

Open to all lovers of education and especially relevant for new and prospective Waldorf community members including teachers, parents, grandparents, staff, and board members.

Our popular Waldorf Weekend workshop is designed to provide an in-depth and experiential survey of the basis and the basics of Waldorf Education. In addition to exploring the Waldorf curriculum, your workshop will include a discussion of Rudolf Steiner’s insights in human development and a look into the anthroposophical underpinnings of the Waldorf impulse. You’ll enjoy hands-on artistic activities such as music, movement, and drawing, and there will be plenty of time for questions and answers. Our Waldorf Weekends are a most memorable—and fun!—learning experience.

Students who took this workshop in previous summers had this to say:

~ The weekend has been wonderful. The information was communicated in a clear way, and I feel like I have a much deeper understanding of what it means to look at the world through the Waldorf lens.
~ It was excellent. The instructors were extremely knowledgeable.

~ The weekend was outstanding! I was deeply inspired, both as a teacher and as a human being.
~ Highly informed, warm-hearted facilitators with a deep concern for the group’s understanding and experience.
~ 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.
~ This was a wonderful workshop, and I highly recommend that everyone from teacher to parents take interest and reap the benefits.

Discount Options (Options 1-2 may not be combined)

l. Volume Discounts for Schools

  • If a school sends between 2-4 attendees, that school’s invoice will reflect an overall 20% discount.
  • If a school sends 5 or more attendees, that school’s invoice will reflect an overall 30% discount.
    These discounts do not apply to Waldorf Weekend registrations, as all Waldorf Weekend registrants receive a regular $85 discounted rate if that Waldorf Weekend registration is an add-on to another course.

Qualifying for a volume discount is a two-step process:

  • Step One: Schools should submit a volume discount form, listing all teachers/staffers the school intends to pay for and the title/s of their chosen course/s and/or workshop/s.
  • Step Two: Each teacher/staffer listed on the volume discount form completes an individual registration form, using the payment waiver code provided to their school. Teachers/staffers who do not complete this final step of submitting an individual registration form are not considered registered.

Schools will be invoiced in July, based on actual attendance. A non-refundable fee—as specified on the registration form—applies to any canceled registration.

 

2. Combined Offerings

  • 20% discounts on subsequent registrations (of equal or lesser value) will automatically appear on your registration form when you register for more than one course and/or workshop. (Exception: Waldorf Weekend, which offers an $85 discount when selected as a subsequent registration.)

 

3. Canadian Dollars

  • Payments made in CAD will receive a 25% discount off the full price in US dollars. (Instructions will pop up on your registration form when you indicate you are paying in Canadian currency.)
  • This discount will be applied after any other applicable discount is made.
