    All About Anthroposophy with Laura Scappaticci of the Anthroposopher Podcast

    As I mention at the start of this episode, I think it's helpful to hear stories of personal discovery and exploration with anthroposophy. At least for me, a lot of ideas surrounding anthroposophy are kind of out there and I find it interesting to speak with individuals who are really diving deep into understanding Steiner's ideas and all the different areas that anthroposophy extends to.

    Are Waldorf Schools Religious?

    I have to tell you, I put more effort into this episode than any other this season. I really wanted to do this topic justice. As I mention in the episode, when I googled “Are Waldorf Schools Religious?”, way back when I was just starting Waldorfy, I found a lot of really confusing conflicting resources, articles, and blog posts. Based on my personal experience attending a Waldorf school, as well as my husband’s experience (he’s also a Waldorf alum) I knew that this wasn’t as hard a topic to tackle as some of those really challenging to understand resources made it seem. I could not have asked a more perfect…

    Who is Rudolf Steiner?

    In this episode I wanted a contrast to the previous three episodes I’ve produced. I wanted a young fresh perspective to speak with me about Rudolf Steiner, who he was, and his ideas. I am so excited that a friend of mine and fellow Waldorf alum, Theodore, said he’d sit down with me for a discussion exploring Rudolf Steiner and anthroposophy. Theo Groh grew up on a biodynamic farm in Wilton New Hampshire. He attended Waldorf school K-12 at Pine Hill and High Mowing School. He graduated with a B.A in Politics from Saint Anselm College, and is currently completing his masters in Digital Marketing and Design at Brandeis University.…
