Tree of life and the crown

By Vivían Piña, September 2021

In San Miguel de Allende, in the heart of Mexico, there is a school community that looks like many people’s dream – Árbol de Vida, a “Waldorf” community. Like for everyone in the world, the year 2020 brought us the “crown” and also the necessary armour to face an unexpected and unknown future. [more]

Worse than in the war

By Ani Barsegyan, September 2021

The kindergarten in Yerevan survived the years 1992 to 1995. These were very difficult, “dark and cold” for Armenia. But the impasse we reached last year was an unprecedented challenge. Despite the war in the early 1990s, parents brought their children to the kindergarten and tried to help us. Now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to close the kindergarten from time to time. In this difficult year 2020, the Friends of Waldorf Education stood by us. Our kindergarten has never been a for-profit enterprise and the fees we take for children have always just covered the monthly expenses.

From Bach to Bach’s sons – in the stream of the generations

By René Walter, August 2021

It is a fascinating family history that is in preparation over nine generations before Johann Sebastian Bach sees the light of day in 1685. Widely branched town musicians, watchmen, organists and cantors preceded him in Thuringia. A family line of skilled and certified craftsmen of the musical arts can be traced back almost 300 years before a defining individuality writes musical history out of it. [more]


Young and old in the art of education or how do we keep each other in line?

By Christof Wiechert, August 2021

Every now and then we encounter the question as to the “giants” of Waldorf education who are no longer supposed to exist. The question always affects us a little awkwardly: in which direction do you look when the question is asked? [more]


Biographical connections

By Stefan Grosse, August 2021

The best way to investigate it is through our own biography: if you look back at a period of your life a little more thoroughly and try to classify events, you will usually have the feeling that things fit together, that it is coherent and makes sense, that there is an “Ariadne’s thread” running through life. Biographies are complex works of art structured in multiple internal relationships. They have a theme, a motif and a goal. The least part of them is subject to a purely biological causality and biographies are certainly not sequences of random events. [more]


In the beginning is the path

By Albert Schmelzer, August 2021

The word initiation contains the Latin “initio”, which means “beginning”; initiation refers to the ability to enter into the magic of the beginning, to learn something new and anew. In this sense, Waldorf teacher training can be understood as an initiatory process. [more]
