Embodying Discipline: An Experiential Workshop for Parents

Tuesday, December 5, 2017     7:30–9:00 pm 

Movement is our first language, and a gesture can sometimes speak more clearly than words. In this experiential workshop, we will increase our awareness of the non-verbal realm of parent and child communication through simple movement exercises. This class is led by Lynn Adelman and Lani Hill, both professional dancers, movement educators, and WWS Early Childhood faculty members. Please dress in clothing suitable for movement. $10 suggested donation.

A Conversation Among Waldorf Grandparents: Building our Relationships

Wednesday, April 25, 2018     7:30–9:00 pm

As grandparents we enjoy watching our grandchildren grow and expand their horizons, yet sometimes it can be difficult to establish an easy-going, relaxed relationship with the children, and even with their parents. Parenting choices and styles may differ from what we had experienced. Understanding Waldorf education can help to open the door to a more satisfying relationship with your grandchild and his or her parents. Several panelists will share their experiences as Waldorf grandparents, with a chance for discussion and exchange of ideas. $10 suggested donation.
