All My Best,
What is a Waldorf Lifestyle?
Creating an enhanced environment that allows freedom of play and lets your child unfold at their own pace. By living in a simplistic way that is not hurried or stressful, it allows space to breathe. Your child learns to bond deeply with their play and surroundings.
It means offering natural playthings and open ended toys to boost imagination and creative dramas. It is all about play at this age, but play is a precursor to learning. We will explore ways to boost this so you child's academic life is rich and rewarding.
This lifestyle is highly connected with nature and being outdoors daily. It creates a warm, loving, peaceful cocoon for your child to develop at their ow pace.
It is filled with music, beautiful art and movement. It's about working together within the household so the child understands purposeful work and is encouraged to participate.
It’s about an in-and-out flow of rhythm to your days which creates balance and consistency that children thrive on. (and it’s pretty good for you, too!) It’s about letting a child be a child and not forcing them to “grow up” before they are ready.

So, what exactly is the Living the Waldorf Life course?
It is a eClass training program that leads you, step-by-step, how to begin creating the foundation of a Waldorf lifestyle. There is great cultural pressure to "hurry" our children into… everything. Academics, sports, classes, and basically a scheduled life. This course is designed to provide you with tools to gain family & friends support as you take the path less traveled, so to speak.
I know you are busy, so I want to make this easy. My goal is to make your learning experience as easy & enjoyable as possible.
That's why every module is delivered in multimedia format. Watch and learn from your computer, or download your training to your iPad or iPhone. You'll receive audio MP3s, PDF workbooks, resource guides, and templates. Simple.
This course is based on 6 simple steps to immerse you in the basics of a Waldorf Lifestyle.
You have an opportunity to provide a foundation for your child that will last a lifetime and will affect the way they learn, love and see the world.
New research shows that for early childhood, playful learning is a much more effective method for children to learn. It really uses the child’s natural curiosity and creativity. There is actually greater gains in learning through playful learning than there is through direct instruction.
"Guided play advances cognitive skills like language, reading, math, as well as social skills like emotion regulation” says Dr. Katherine Hirsh-Pasek, psychologist and playful learning advocate."
Class 1: Understanding the Waldorf philosophy foundation:
During this first class I will give you an overview of Rudolf Steiner and his teachings. This is a behind the scenes look into how your child’s development influences their surroundings and education. It will help you understand “why” things are done at certain times.
Class 2: Getting it all done without exhaustion &
This class is the key to creating a lifestyle that feels relaxed, flowing and can breathe. I am a BIG advocate of getting your pillars of the day in place. It creates a consistency which frees you (mom) to be present and have fun with your child instead of feeling frazzled and a step behind. We will get your daily and weekly rhythm structure in place during this week.
Class 3: How to center yourself to be present for your child: Inner Work
This week I will help get you centered so you can be the shining light that grounds your household. You need confidence to guide your family on this journey. Having boundaries in place will stop overwhelm and guilty "yes's". Balancing your life with your own self-care can be one of the hardest parts for us as moms. We want to give, give, give.. But we can’t be effective when we are empty. You will get some exercises for self-care and create a calendar of your personal self-care activities.
"You have no idea how unimportant is all that the teacher says or does not say on the surface, and how important what he himself is as teacher."- Rudolf Steiner
Class 4: Creating a nourishing cocoon that honors your child's senses:
Environment This week we will get into the nuts and bolts of your child's living space. Toys, noise, clutter, and simplifying are the heart of this module. Did you know that too much surrounding your child can cause her to develop shallow play habits? And a feeling of overwhelm. We will clear out and simplify during this week.
Class 5: Benefits of play and how play sets your child up for success:
Your young child's job is to play and this week we will talk about inside and outside play. What is meant by "play" and how all of this can actually help your child with future academics. Plus, You will get the bonus "Playful Learning" Tool that you can take back to your family toshow how much your child is actually learning.
Class 6: Embracing nature, seasons, festivals & celebrations as your curriculum
Probably one of the most popular modules, we discuss media, pop-culture, and how to incorporate a Waldorf life without isolation. I give ideas for support for you and your child.
**Plus Bonus Modules: *Waldorf Speak: communicate with love and respect, *Simplify Your Home, Environment and Lifestyle, and *Learning through Creative Expression & the Arts
Plus, I'll be there to help you along the way.
You can ask questions through our interactive forum along with a ton of other moms just like you! It is so important not to feel you have to do this alone. I want you to be guides and supported and confident that you can do this.

"People will object that the children learn to read and write too late. That is said only because it is not known today how harmful it is when the children learn to read and write too soon.
Reading and writing as we have them today are really not suited to the human being till a later age...and the more a child is blessed with not being able to read and write well before this age, the better it is for the later years of life." – By RUDOLF STEINER, The Kingdom of Childhood
