Coming of Age in the 21st Century: Waldorf Education and the Modern Child
Tuesday, March 25, 7pm
Even in the digital age, teenagers and children need deep, personal relationships with adults and peers who see them for who they are—and who they might become. High Mowing is fortunate to have Florian Osswald, a 30 year Waldorf teacher and consultant to Waldorf schools around the world, spend two days with us in March, speaking with teachers and parents.
“Teaching adolescents [and children] in this time of great complexity demands that we develop our capacities of intuition, moving toward the future rather than working with concepts and actions based on the past,” explains Florian. “To succeed in our schools, we must also address the young person’s longing to build strong community out of the power of a healthy ego.”
While Florian is here, he will lead a conversation and answer questions from the audience. All of those interested in education in the 21st century are encouraged to attend. Florian was the keynote speaker at the annual North American Waldorf School’s teacher conference two summers ago. Everyone at the conference—early childhood, grade school, high school and subject teachers, board members, and administrators—were greatly inspired by Florian’s message about how Waldorf education is perfect for today’s students.
Please join us in the Big Room at High Mowing School on Tuesday, March 25, 2014 at 7 pm for a conversation with Florian Osswald.
