" Our rightful place as educators is

to be removers of hindrances.

Each child in every age brings something new into the world from divine regions,

And it is our task as educators

To remove body and soul obstacles out of the child’s way.

To remove hindrances so that the spirit may enter

In full freedom into life."

~ Rudolf Steiner “The Spiritual Ground of Education” (GA 305, Lecture 4).

"In infancy, the sensory experience is unified and undifferentiated. As the three faculties of thinking, feeling, and willing develop, the senses take on a more distinct character. Initially this happens unconsciously and can later be raised into consciousness." Barbara Baldwin.
