“Connection to spirit through the natural world”

The basis of what drives my work and choice of Waldorf for my children is connection to spirit through the natural world. Imagination is the conduit for this connection as well as a lived outcome from it. The children are respected and learn to respect one another as aspects of the world of seasons and elements around them. Sensitivity is developed inside them which yields an understanding of their place in the world; they become people who desire to live and work in ways that feed them and contribute to their surroundings, having learned to identify their distinct gifts.
