    Subscribe to the Waldorfy Podcast Apple PodcastsGoogle PodcastsSpotifyStitcher This episode is totally unique to anything I've done before. In the episode I'm being interviewed by the lovely Laura Scappaticci of the Anthroposopher podcast. Laura was my guest in last week's episode and right after I interviewed her, she interviewed me for her show. In that conversation we spent more time on what I find intriguing about anthroposophy. I speak about my connection and appreciation of Waldorf education and biodynamic farming. We also discussed  statements that Steiner made about race. I have an interest in some ideas in the sphere of anthroposophy but I have never been able to get over…

Palumba believes that imaginative, open-ended play with simple toys, crafted from beautiful, natural material offers children warmth and a sense of well-being when discovering their world. This lovely photo is of the Waldorf school I attended, the Pine Hill Campus at High Mowing School in Wilton New Hampshire. When I was young I often wondered why our school was in such a unique building.  As children my friends and I would joke about how it had "no right angles", which isn't actually true. However the unique angles in the building have certainly sparked me to wonder, "why?". I loved hosting the…

Palumba believes that imaginative, open-ended play with simple toys, crafted from beautiful, natural material offers children warmth and a sense of well-being when discovering their world.

    Anthroposophy ~TRAILER FOR SEASON 3~

    This trailer was so fun to create and so different than any episode I've done before. I am most excited to announce the theme for season 3 which is.... Anthroposophy! It's a huge topic, but something I've really wanted to do a deep dive in for a while. To give you a quick explanation of the relationship between anthroposophy and Waldorf education, I make a comparison  of anthroposophy being like a tree. Waldorf education is like a branch of that tree. Then there are other things that the founder of Waldorf education Rudolf Steiner had developed views on as well. Things like biodynamic farming, social finance, medicine, and these are…

Palumba believes that imaginative, open-ended play with simple toys, crafted from beautiful, natural material offers children warmth and a sense of well-being when discovering their world. I so enjoyed recording this episode with Carrie Dendtler of theparentingpassageway.com. In this season of episodes it was important for me to speak to multiple guests on the topic of Waldorf homeschooling. One because I know so little about it myself, but also because I know that different listeners will connect with different homeschool journeys. When I set out to find guests to speak about Waldorf homeschooling in this season almost every one I spoke…
