    Waldorf in the Muslim Home

    When I thought about creating this season of episodes it dawned on me, how bringing Waldorf into the home will really be different in every household. Yes, there are things like some Waldorf kids watch a little more TV than others, but that was not the kind of different I was thinking of.  I wanted to explore how Waldorf ideas and methods were incorporated into family traditions that aren’t included in a traditional Waldorf school year. How can traditions from all around the world be brought into the Waldorf fold?  This is exactly what I discuss in this episode with guest Ashley May. Ashley eloquently described what drew her to…

    Seasonal Rhythm and Waldorf Festivals

    The topic of seasonal rhythm and Waldorf festivals is one I was so excited to explore on the podcast. Since rediscovering all things “Waldorfy” as an adult and parent, I’ve loved cooking and crafting for celebrations we’ve enjoyed as a family and community. However, there have been some “holidays” that haven’t had much meaning for me. Ones I’ve struggled to create purpose in celebrating. This fall Halloween was that day for me. I just couldn’t find any meaning in it outside of the candy and store bought plastic decorations. (Also I’ll ad that the pumpkins didn’t work out on the farm this year which didn’t help.) We ended up doing…

    Waldorf Homeschooling with Melisa Nielsen of Waldorf Essentials

    It was such a delight to have Melisa Nielsen come on the show to speak with me about Waldorf homeschooling. I’ll be honest, I was intimidated to cover this topic since it’s something I know almost nothing about. So many of you requested that I cover Waldorf homeschooling and I didn’t even know where to begin. I asked the Waldorfy social media audience, who they would like to hear from on the topic of Waldorf homeschooling and overwhelmingly the guest that the most people wanted to hear from was Melisa. I personally didn’t know Melisa and because I’m always trying to bring you all the very best of guests and…
