    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. Growing up attending a Waldorf school, one of the things I would look forward to most at the end of the year was the excitement of getting to move into a new classroom the following year. The next grade always felt so much more cool, and moving to a new classroom meant moving into a room of a new color! If you've attended a Waldorf school, or have had a child attend one, you may…

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…

    A Road Map For Anthroposophy

      I decided to title this episode “A Road Map for Anthroposophy”, because I felt that really best described what this episode is. If you're a big Waldorfy fan and have listened in all the way back to the beginning of season one, you'll remember that in episode 103 I did a more brief sweeping introduction to anthroposophy. If you want to go back and check that episode out click here. In this episode we’re breaking down what anthroposophy is in simple terms and then laying out all the things that fall under the umbrella of anthroposophy. I know I referenced that umbrella term a lot in the trailer for…
