From: Donna Ashton

Dear committed parent,

Whether you are new to Waldorf or just thinking about how to make it work for you, chances are that you’re on this page because you’ve considered Waldorf education before, but weren’t sure where to start.

Or, perhaps you’ve tried to figure out how to make the changes to your home and life but it didn’t work out “right”, seemed too hard or perhaps your confidence was not where it could be and you started second guessing your decision.

Or maybe you looked at all you had to do and thought you don’t have the time for this and threw in the towel (before you even gave it a chance)…

If any of the above sound like you, or even if you simply are ready to go and want to get it right from the start, then I have an amazing opportunity for you, the likes of which you will never have seen before.
[divider top=”0″] Hi, I’m Donna Ashton, long-time Waldorf homeschooling mom, author, parenting coach, advisor, and the founder of the “International Association of Waldorf Homeschooling” (IAWHS).Donna Snapshot 1 (6-13-2013 1-58 PM)

When I started my online business at TheWaldorfConnection.com back at the end of 2010, I set it up with one clear intention in mind:

To be successful in my business by helping as many other families be as successful as possible.

Whether I was coaching people around how to homeschool, or helping people to create a thriving Waldorf Lifestyle, my goal was the same – to do the best job possible and to help as many people as possible. I wanted to make it easier for them than it was for me.

After several years of Living a Waldorf Life I realized that:

*Our days were joyful and a lot of fun
*My kids were thriving, healthy and so happy!
*I felt secure and confident with the path I had chosen
*Our lives became woven with the rhythms of nature

As a conscious parent your goals are to nourish your child as a whole individual, give them confidence to express themselves in their unique way, nurture creativity balance and independent thinking, allow them to focus on what interests them,
cultivate a love for learning and  more important- allow them enjoy being a child.

homeworkThe trend of educating our children younger and younger seems to have reached outrageous proportions. Testing and expecting 4-5-6 year olds to adhere to unrealistic expectations of reading and math have started a new trend in many schools – 3rd grade burn-out.

By age 9, they have had years of too much, too soon and have grown weary and stressed out of this forcing of early academics. The love of learning is squashed down by this approach. In the last 2 decades, children have lost 8 hours of play per week.
bbcI want to show you another way.

If you have found your way here, you are ready to step forward.
You might be nervous. You might feel overwhelmed.
Maybe you’re stuck.

But you are passionate, committed and READY.

Ready to release the pressures of society and embrace
a lifestyle that allows your child to unfold naturally.

Ready to create the best foundation to raise an imaginative, caring,
child with a love for learning and nature.

Ready to have peace of mind that you have chosen the
right path.

And ready to proactively and consciously offer this
lifestyle to your child NOW.

If this sounds like you, then I am excited to invite you
into my “Living the Waldorf Life” online program.

One thing I have learned from 9 years of homeschooling
and living a Waldorf lifestyle- you can slowly figure it all out by yourself.

Or you can reach out and let my hand pull you up and ease your way.

We can do it together.

[heading style=”1″]What is a Waldorf Lifestyle?[/heading]

024x

 

 

 

 

 

Waldorf means creating an enhanced environment that allows freedom for 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 and for your child 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.

This lifestyle is highly connected  with nature and being outdoors daily.
It creates a warm, loving peaceful cocoon for your child to develop as they are intended.

It is filled with music, beautiful art and movement.  Its about working together within the
household
so the child understands purposeful work and participates.

It’s about an in and out flow of rhythm to your days that creates a 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 “wake up” before they are ready.

In this Training you will learn…

 

Module 1: Understanding What Waldorf Is
Let’s start at the heart of what Waldorf is all about. You can’t really live this lifestyle without understanding the reasons and philosophy behind it all. (And it will make it much easier to explain to family & friends if YOU get it) It’s not hard you just need to have it explained in a digestible way. We’ll start with founder Rudolf Steiner’s teachings on child development, the 4-bodies, the 12 senses and more.
EXCITING COMPLIMENTARY BONUSES:POSTER: “ The Four bodies handout”
Module 2: Getting It All Done Without Exhaustion : Daily & Weekly Rhythm
This 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.
EXCITING COMPLIMENTARY BONUSES:TEMPLATE: “Bird Eye View of Your Daily & Weekly Rhythm”TEMPLATE: “My Ideal Day”POSTER: “Menu Planner”HANDOUT: My Rhythm -Sample Day
Module 3: Be Present & Centered For Your Child Using 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.

Module 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.

Module 6: Embracing Nature, Seasons, Festivals & Celebrations As Curriculum
The world is based on rhythms. Each season ebbs and flows in a spiritual rhythm that we have lost in our modern day. We spend most days indoors with clocks instead of experiencing the sun and moon as our calendars. Bringing this gift to your child can do so much to center and balance. We will talk all bout the wonders of seasons and how just looking outside your window is enough learning. Rituals, Festivals and celebrations are a large part of a Waldorf lifestyle and you will get the inside scoop on how to make it all work.

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.

“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 – the eleventh or twelfth year – 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
