Five Spheres of Waldorf Education

Thank you for the birthday wishes!! I don't feel like I am 32 but then again I never felt any older when I turned 30, either.

I am very excited about a Waldorf Ecourse I have the honor of taking part in next week (Happy birthday to me-woo hoo!). It is being taught by Waldorf teacher Dr. Rick Tan. He (And the rest of his family) has been inspiring me for years now and I can not wait to see what wisdom he will pass on to us.

There are still a few spots left if you would like to join me! Here is the info on it:
