Adolescence – Know yourself!

The future lies in the hands of young people

By Constanza Kaliks, October 2020

That being young should be the subject of an academic discipline, an independent field of learning and research, was comprehensible only to a few people at the beginning when Rudolf Steiner brought the “Section for the Spiritual Striving of Youth” into being as a department of the School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum in Dornach. [more]

Adolescence – Know yourself!

The initiation of young people. A little known task in Rudolf Steiner’s art of education

By Valentin Wember, October 2020

The night from 10 to 11 January 1881 was a bitterly cold Vienna winter’s night. Rudolf Steiner remained up late, sat in his room, reflected on a number of philosophical questions and then turned back to a concern which had occupied him for the whole of his life: self-knowledge and self-experience. He had read the following in the philosopher Schelling: “In all of us there is a secret, wonderful ability to withdraw from the change of time into our innermost (...) self and there (...) look at the eternal in us.” [more]

The art in practical work. Handwork lessons in Waldorf school

By Anette Sigler, September 2020

For those unfamiliar with Waldorf education, it possesses some strange features and handwork lessons are considered by some to be among them. Even the name alone! Where similar lessons exist in mainstream schools, they are mostly called “textile design” which somehow sounds more modern and demanding. But this fails to refer to the development and cultivation of manual dexterity which is intended with the handwork lessons at Waldorf schools.

High-flyers also need flying lessons. The potential and problems of highly gifted children

By Birgit Wegerich-Bauer, August 2020

High-flyers, nerds, misfits ... the list of names which highly gifted children are called is a long one. In early childhood they can easily be identified as high-flyers. But often they are thwarted in their urge to try things out and think them through. Subsequently when they start school, full of anticipation, they are brought to a halt again because then these children are told: wait! [more]
