Vital Years 2021
“Our sense perceptions provide the basis for the rest of our soul life"
Rudolf Steiner (Lectures of 1909-1911, "Anthroposophy”)
Have you noticed that the children coming now seem to be calling to be met differently? Do the ways you have done things in the past no longer work so well? Are you finding an increase in children with complex support needs? As we continue to become more awake to the complexities of our time, with climate change and the social justice movement at the forefront of many of our minds, are you questioning your practice? These are some of the themes we will be exploring during the coming Vital Years conference, through the lens of the Senses.
Come and be curious with us as we delve into this together. We know that rhythm and warmth are among the most healing forces for children. How can we best provide experiences of what it means to feel well in our bodies and environments and equip our children to be robust enough to be contributors in the world in the future?
Register now to join us from 4-6th July.
