A collection of eight essays from a master Waldorf teacher includes chapters on how to motivate children, parent/teacher relationships, and the school organization as a living organism.
There is a chapter in which the author questions whether moral principles can be taught, and another chapter entitled “The Seven Cosmic Artists: an Artistic View of Child Development” teaching children and youth that aims toward educating the whole person according to body, soul and spirit in a balanced way. Such an education can be carried out only if the educator is aware how in evolution the physical is formed out of the soul and spirit. For one can participate in the education of a being only if one understands the laws of this education. This book is filled with gems to be mined by teachers, parents, students of spiritual science, and scholars.
