Join us to explore the challenges and gifts that young people are bringing into the world today.
What are they meeting in today's society? How can we, as Waldorf teachers, work to help them develop the capacities to fulfill their destinies?
Keynote speaker Mary Jo Oresti brings great insight and experience to the conference theme. Her approach to movement and healing has resonance and practical application for teachers of all age groups.
Activity leaders include Catherine Steiner (games), Joan Baugh (Bothmer/movement), Liatt Zehavi (Eurythmy), Jan Elliott (English traditional dance), and Brigitta Witteveen (remedial/Extra Lesson).
Focus groups will provide opportunities to explore specific areas of interest related to the conference theme; deepen our learning, and share insights and knowledge with colleagues from around the region. (Registration for specific discussion groups will take place on site.)
