    @Ancient Path I know it was probably a typo (maybe not!) but I love that you wrote that "hippieness" is key. 🙂

    Here: https://steiner.presswarehouse.com/sites/steiner/research/archive/how_to_know_higher_worlds/how_to_know_higher_worlds.pdf This is the book I have and will probably be referencing the lines and numbers within. It can also be found as "Knowledge of Higher Worlds and Its Attainment" - however it will probably make most sense if we're all using similar versions. We'll work with what we've got, though 😊

    There is something magical that happens when we prepare the home. There is an energy we fill it with. Have you ever been in a home that lacks that? Not pleasant is it? I strive to do the best spiritual house work I can and set ego aside and let the good energy flow from all the chores I do in our home. I will say this though it is a battle with the ego at times I feel with this culture its hard for homemakers to have respect and feel good enough if the ego wants society recognition. If we look just in our own surrounds and soak up the recognition we get from our own tribe that will nourish ones soul and spirit. The outside(society) noise isn't wanting the same goals are we are trying to set. Their goals are well lets just say for materialism and capitalism goals. I won't get off on that soap box. You can change the world by changing your mindset and your homemaking task. One task at a time. Laws of attraction here in motion.

    As the earth wakes from its long winters nap there is a frenzy of activity here on my little family farm!! I have been using most of my free moments to visualize how our summer will flow and taking the proper spring time actions to paint that picture accordingly. I will also be continuing lessons for my first grader through mid summer and using my first original main lessons that I have been preparing for her! So excited to see this come into fruition! I have for a long time thought that the proper new year happens around now. Especially for my family, spring is the time of year when everything is new. We begin to fulfill renovation plans, lay new infrastructure, begin to tuck our starts into the ground, begin sprouting seeds for our summer garden, continue to make plant foods and preparations and this year we are going to be expanding our projects in huge ways. After a cold icy winter we have a pretty short window to set ourselves up for a well structured summer that will turn to a bountiful fall which will bring us a peaceful and content winter. So as I sit here after a beautiful sunny spring day spent in search of eggs and wildflowers with the folks that I love most. Alone for the first time all weekend! I can’t help but smile 😊 Today we revisited a local mountainside where we went last year to watch sunset and gather bouquets. About half way up the valley we realized that this place had been mildly ravaged by one of two wildfires that burned very close to home last year. It was incredible to see how much green had already pushed through in some parts in such a short period of time. It led to discussion of evolving to work with given conditions and the idea that flourishing can look many different ways. I am glad to be in a place where I can infuse these commonly accepted and celebrated holidays with meaning for my children! I see them having so much genuine appreciation and understanding of things bigger than themselves. Mostly unspokenly, but when I do overhear them speaking to each other with excitement to be a part of our time spent together working on current and future projects makes my heart swell! I love seeing them grow into their future selves. Blessings to everyone and their own sacred family rituals✨

    On page 3 in the beginning of the book it talks about a worldview where we as a CORE human are neither male nor female, nor belonging to a certain religion, nor a certain race etc. . . and that we go through repeated earth lives where we might incarnate as different races or genders or religions. . . and if you really take this view seriously then you can fully accept your current life situation. This is very freeing for me! What are your thoughts on the implications of this? How does this affect our view of ourselves as "mere housewives" ?

    Yay for the child being the curriculum!! I have another great lecture to go share of his where he specifically says what works for one child won’t for another!! We always have to keep this in mind! 💛

    I couldn't agree more!! We have to get into a place that allows the ego to enjoy the simplicity and spirituality of homemaking task. This is also allowing our children to gain the same insights by our own doings. They are coping how we as adults are living. Every thing has a cause and effect. If we rush in our tasks at hand there will be short coming some where and usually often more than not that shows up in our stress and knocks off our rhythmn. Ripple effect like on water. The stress carries over into children's behaviors and even indoor pets behaviors. Energy is surged through house work good or bad and we make that choice with every task. I am not saying I am perfect and that I always have great energy but when I do the ripple effect is much better than the bad energy. Thank you for the sage reminder I have a small jar left and need to do that today. My daughter loves the smell of the house after a good sage cleansing. The hubs craves pizza or spaghetti for some reason after a sage cleansing. Looks like gluten free pizza tonight. Lol!!

    "What is Truth?" … that is the title of a very personal journal page of mine. I have been working on that title for over a year. The very fact that I desire so deeply to know the Truth makes me feel like I'm an initiate. My personal perspective on the knowledge of Truth, devotion and reverence is this … I have found it safe to give reverence and devotion to myself and the works of my hands and nature. These have been a wonderful starting point for me. Something Notable: As much as I love and am devoted to the knowledge of Truth, I feel the exact opposite about untruths .. a holy hatred. Speaking to judgement and criticism.. I am extremely mindful of how I talk to myself about myself. I imagine if we could hear the tapes being played in the minds of some … we could see how awful they speak to themselves. I try to be gentle and loving with myself in a non judgmental and critical way. One of the ways I do that with my art, is by trying my best to look objectively at things … without judgement. When the children and I are creating together I try to refrain from judgements … good or bad. "Momma, do you like my drawing?" "I notice the bright color of yellow on your paper."

    I'd like to start with a few items from the Foreward and Preface. I have to say, I love how with every edition, Steiner would add a Preface talking about changes, things he wanted to emphasize, etc. While I truly love some of our modern day spiritual authors, it is often clear the books are there to make a buck. Can you imagine some of our modern day mystics re-reading, editing, and writing a preface with every new edition published? And how many of you skipped these parts? I think I did on first read. A few things standing out to me: Preface to the Third Edition pg 2 "For example, we may easily object that some spiritual scientific observations do not agree with certain modern scientific findings. But in truth there is no scientific finding that contradicts spiritual research. It is easy to think this or that piece of scientific evidence contradicts what spiritual science tells us about higher worlds, but only if we have no considered the scientific findings impartially and from every point of view. In fact, we shall find that the more open-mindedly we compare spiritual science with the positive accomplishments of science, the more beautiful we recognize the complete agreement between the two to be." I admit, I come from an ex-catholic, agnostic, semi-atheist background and so this has always been a difficult subject for me and the star of a lot of my inner work. A lot of that work came from reading a book called "Human Heart, Cosmic Heart" by an anthroposophical doctor. It helped me shift my scientific mindset from objective to subjective - because how can we remove the human experience from science? pg 3 "While we cannot all instantly become "seers," the cognitive insights of a person who has such vision can nevertheless provide healthy food for all. All of us can apply these insights to our lives; and if we do so, we shall soon realize not only the possibilities of life in every area but also what life lacks when we exclude these insights." pg 5 "If we read this book closely, so that reading it becomes an inner experience, we will not only come to know its contents, but different passages will also evoke different feelings. These feelings indicate the significance of these different passages for our own soul development and help us to discover how to adapt the various exercises to our own individual natures." I am thinking that keeping a simple journal, focused on feelings during these exercises, will be useful. I majored in English and Creative Writing - but have never been a good journal keeper! Preface to the Fifth Edition pg 9 "Unfortunately, these comments may have led some readers to a misunderstanding: they may have been led to believe that the personal relationship to a teacher was more essential for those seeking spiritual schooling than it really is." I have always gleaned more knowledge from the discussions that arise out of a book club, especially of newbies, than I have from listening to a mentor or "master." Really grateful to go through this book with you all. pg 9-10 "The new edition of this book was printed and ready for sale when the great war, now being experienced by humanity broke out. Writing this preface, my soul is deeply stirred by this fateful event." When have you ever heard a political leader speak about the world in this way? Feel free to supply your own quotes from these sections, ones that stirred your feelings!

    @EmilyR wonderful thoughts here! I have a Waldorf Kindergarten book and it talks about children knowing when we are present in our tasks. For instance, washing the dishes but your mind is already on another task or wanting to be doing something other than. & I can feel the heaviness of environments ... a negative place even if it is immaculate. I suspect children are hyper sensitive that way too. Girl, I be getting that sage out after heavy visitors leave. 😁✌

    I once heard a Waldorf high school teacher speak about this in terms of the outcome of Waldorf education. That a child comes out from it not married to their viewpoint. They are able to walk all around a problem and see all the viewpoints without judgment and then utilize all the viewpoints to then determine the truth. Now writing that out it reminds me of how a faculty meeting works - everyone speaks their truth into the center of the circle and from the center the truth will arise.

    Long before I read Roadmap to Literacy, I realized that writing with colored pencils just didn't work for my kids. I think I made my first two do it through a good part of second grade before giving up and going to regular pencils with erasers. With my current second grader, we have been using a graphite pencil all year. Though I do sometimes have him write titles with colored pencils. None of my kids wrote with crayons much past doing the alphabet in grade 1 either. I haven't used lined paper much, but I do stripe my child's pages with block crayons before he writes anything.

    We come from using boxed curriculum in 1st grade and my daughters hand writing has become worse. We are in 3rd grade and I have been trying to stick 100 percent to what I read about Waldorf on writing. And this book is a god send. She needs lined paper and her regular graphite pencil back. These triangle lyra colored pencils are really making her dislike writing so this just might solved our writing issue. I have the Roadmap to literacy book just haven't even opened the book yet. I just started reading it this week. I opened to page to get to this matter at hand. I will post a before pic and after this week and let you guys know how much or less of an improvement lined paper and regular pencil provides for us. I feel this is a huge misconception within the waldorf community as a whole. I was told plain white to balance out the ego. I have been pushing her on with the triangle lyras. Ugh! But now I know I can just relax and go back to lined paper with our regular pencils she loves and did very well in grade 1 with.

    I love that he took the time... he’s so thorough in his quest to help humanity ✨ “what is essential does not lie in any single truth, but in the agreement between all.” He seemed to say this is the most important thing to keep in mind as we go. He is speaking about the exercises ... that one might not be understood until the other is done! So I’m thinking we should work into them one by one but refrain from complete judgement of them until we have experienced them all ☺️👍🏼 We should share our thoughts and then watch how they change over the course of this book club! 💛 Excited to dive deep with you guys 🤗

    I am very interested in this topic. The true life heroes are the ones who humbly do their daily tasks happily. Washing the clothes and dishes, moping the floors etc. can be monotones and tireless tasks sometimes. I have found that managing my thoughts about my tasks and maintain inner peace and hippieness is KEY! I feel like this book could help me. Do you know if there is a free download for it anywhere?

    Presenting our children with an abundance of opportunity to create is such a wonderful gift!! Rudolf Steiner described the human being as having 12 senses. Through these 12 sense we come into ourselves and perceive our environment. Our 12 senses are divided into three categories 4 lower senses, 4 middle senses, and 4 higher senses. The development of the higher senses is in direct correspondence to the development of the lower senses. Interaction with the outside world through art and music is so important to fuel the development of the higher senses., I am gladly offering an extensive catalogue of high quality art, music, and handwork supplies to this community at a discounted price. Brands such as Stockmar, Lyra, Choiri, and Mercurius. All items with a 10% discount compared with market values. An additional discount for bulk orders over $1,000!

    I did the lined paper experiment and my daughter hated it!! She cried real big alligator tears but she did complete the summery. I don't care if RTL books states lined paper is better the white paper suits her better so that's what we will use.Now the triangle lyras she dislike writing with them but loves using for art work. I did purchase a set of 24 prism colored pencils. Those came in on Wed. Hello, Amazon prime:). She likes them to write. I have read where teachers use them up to the grade 8 level with art work. They are vibrant and last a long time. For penmanship we have included the fountain pen which she is loving for journaling. She stated she loves the colors best in MLB with the colored pencils than the graphite pencils or pens. She admires her work with the use of colored pencils (not the triangle ones) and that makes me happy. Lined or not being happy is all that really matters to me. So here's to the child is the curriculumn;)! Such a valuable lesson I received from this book already even if I didn't go with their end result. I found what was best for my daughter in the end:)! Thank you all that commented and helped me see what was already in front of me. I have a lot more learning and growing to do. Lots more reading on Steiner and listening to his podcast lectures. Blessings to you all!!

    Your totally 100 percent correct about the curriculums. I could have bought many nice things for handi work had I not purchased so many of them. But on the flip side coming to Waldorf having no experience with Waldorf methods or heavens sake not even knowing Steiner existed was a blessing to see how many interrupted this method of education. I do not regret it other than the cost factor. But with that said it can complicate things quite a bit if you take every curriculum as holy grail. Use what you can and leave the rest. There is no way even in a school setting they can utilize the full curriculum. Life happens and children don't flow as planned. Thank you for your input:).

    Now, going through this book in this way - small section by small section - will take us a long time but also allow the depth and time needed for working through it all. My underlined bits - feel free to discuss and/or add your own. pg 15 - "On the other hand, we can be certain that, if our striving for knowledge is sincere and worthy, initiation will find us whatever the circumstances. There is a universal law among initiates that the knowledge due a seeker cannot be withheld. But there is also another universal law that esoteric knowledge may not be imparted to anyone not qualified to receive it." Do you consider yourself an initiate? pg 16 - "We begin with a fundamental mood of soul. Spiritual researchers call this basic attitude the path of reverence, of devotion to truth and knowledge." Steiner describes this akin to the reverence found in childhood. I find myself easily able to look at children with reverence and awe, but rarely am I able to look at adults in this way (I find most adults....hard to be around.) I started working with this practice by, and I mean this in the least condescending way, looking at adults as children, spiritually speaking. And many of them are. If I see them as childlike in these terms, I can easier practice my reverence for them. If this caused someone to feel "better than" when looking at another adult in this way, then I don't recommend this technique - but it has helped me immensely. pg 17 - "We will not find the inner strength to evolve to a higher level if we do not inwardly develop this profound feeling that there is something higher than ourselves." Do you feel this profoundly? How often? How do you know that feeling? pg 18 - "Our civilization is more inclined to criticize, judge, and condemn than to feel devotion and selfless veneration...But just as surely as every feeling of devotion and reverence nurtures the soul's powers for higher knowledge, so every act of criticism and judgment drives these powers away." And this is why it's called a spiritual PRACTICE. How easy is it to criticize and judge those who disagree with us? Sometimes I will make the heart of my days practice bringing into my imagination a conflict I am having with another person and look upon them and their space with reverence. It is hard. Really, really, hard. It takes force and effort and feels like faking it. pg 19 - "Anyone seeking higher knowledge must create these feelings inwardly, instilling them in the soul. This cannot be done by studying. It can be done only by living. If we wish to become esoteric students, we must train ourselves vigorously in the mood of devotion...But if I try to enter deeply and lovingly into another person's good qualities, I gather in that force." pg 21 - "At first, a basic mood of devotion to everything truly worthy of reverence suffuses our entire inner life." pg 23 - "The world around us is filled everywhere with the glory of God but we have to experience the divine in our own souls before we can find it in our surroundings."

    🙏 I am grateful for this space to help me clarify my own thoughts. We live in a polarized world - you are pro-something or anti-something. There is no spectrum, there is no grey area. But I feel a shift in some ways (not all) but in terms of spiritual "stuff" I see a lot of shift in thinking away from a binary. Gender, sexuality, spirituality, children, identity in general. We are finding, as a collective, that things do not work in terms of polarized views. How wonderful it will be to raise children with the Waldorf method, so they can continue into the world and help further that stepping away from the binary.

    I don't recall exactly whom or what said it but I had been told many times that for true balance in all areas the paper didn't need to be lined. I have been reading books as Rhythm of Learning and Towards Wholeness and Heaven on Earth to realise I have wasted so much time listening to others. I just needed to dive deep into Steiner's lectures. He doesn't state the white ego and your correct. And the first school used lined paper. I have several Waldorf curricula and both don't say to use lined but to use white MLB. It seems as if its taboo either way depending on which end is up. I think for me mainly seeing all the all white MLB pages on FB and Pinterest just solidified that I needed to go that route. Hardly do you see lined MLB but I do find them more lately popping up. Maybe more are becoming wiser of the fact that we can use lined paper without regret. My daughter has been writing cursive since grade 2 before we came to Waldorf late in grade 2.

    I wonder where these misconceptions come from! I have read most of Steiner’s lectures on writing and he never mentions materials... only that writing is to be born out of drawing! Also only that it isn’t important to be able to write well until the teenage years except to meet society’s standards. My 1st Grader uses those triangle Lyras but she also uses regular colored pencil and graphite. We just use whatever! I doubt we would be using them in 3rd grade though. My older daughter just used regular colored pencil in 3rd. We started cursive on lined paper! The white ego balance ... there is no Steiner passage to support this!

    Another takeaway from the preface was ... It speaks a lot about giving knowledge to those who aren't ready and passing it to those who are. But, the first chapter dives into non-judgemental thinking. TRUTH gives freely to whomever it chooses. Which is a great relief to me, becuase I don't have to worry about who is ready and who is not. Truth and knowledge revel themselves to each individual according their own time. ♡

    Fifth Edition pg.9 stood out to me as well. Everything we need in inside of us. No external thing can provide it. It's already there. Teachers could help you see what is already there, but the teachers can not give you what you already have. Another part of the preface that stands out to me, and I'm sorry I don't have the pg. number, I read them last night, is a recurring theme for me. I first learned about it through a correspondence course "In Search of the Self" a Siddha Yoga meditation teaching. Often times, in order to understand something it must be viewed from different angles. Imagine an object on a table ... it looks one way from one angle, but another way from a differmet angle. It is still one object. The same with teaching spiritual objects. One theme or topic taught in many ways. That is why rereading is important. Your perspective of the material will change depending on you life perceptions at the time. What a wonderful book, so far. Thanks for starting this club. I love to hear other peoples perspectives and views. It helps me deepen understanding. ♡

    We have been "studying" conifer trees for well over a year. . . my girls have been fascinated with them ever since I organized a little lesson on Hemlock trees for our local Waldorf Co-op at Hemlock Bluffs, a local nature preserve with beautiful hemlocks. First I studied the local Hemlocks myself. . . and I really fell in love with them. I wrote a short children's story about a Hemlock tree and Woolly Bugs (which will be available to download in our downloads section for subscribers!). It is an adorable story with forest creatures too. So I practiced my story over and over so I could tell it in the forest on a hike under the hemlock trees. I also planned the day out in my Threefold Human Calendar (this was when I was first creating it and a first draft!). I wrote my thoughts about my studies, I drew the feelings it gave me along with the story. . . We met up with the group and went on the hike with snacks and water. . . and eventually got to the spot under the hemlocks, and stood under their large presence with their baby cones! The children all listened to the story and stared up at the trees. . . and we then hiked the rest of the trail, returning to the start to have a snack and prepare for the craft! I led the craft to make these little baby hemlock ornaments (we did not take them from the preserve I ordered hemlock cones online before the event. . . we leave nature preserves intact!) These make perfect little fall into winter ornaments . . . we put them on our wooden year round seasonal tree 💛 It was wonderful to combine the hike/story/craft for the group! If you would like to organize this with your group, please check out our downloads section to download the hemlock story! Onward to our current conifer experiences . . . this year, we have had incredible pollen storms in North Carolina from our pine trees! It was so intense that we were sneezing, wiping yellow dust from our eyelashes, and other things we never thought we would have to do! We aren't doing a lesson on pollen for a couple weeks in our Botany block, but I can assure you. . . I think they learned a big lesson! Haha! The conifers presence has made itself known loud and clear. . . My first grader loves to pick up the "Pine Worms" for pretend play, and pointed out to me how the worms hide the pollen in their cracks! Here are some collected in a pot from the pines in our backyard, but after a good rain that washed all the pollen away finally. She noticed it was all gone and told me "The rain washed the pollen!" My 5th Grader and I read the story "The Fisherman's Catch" from Charles Kovacs Ancient Mythology book and what an interesting story it is about a Brahmin who lived in the forest and swam with the fish for long periods of time but was eventually sold by fishermen to a king for a sacred cow! We blended this and our conifer talk about the trees who have no blossoms, and are like four years olds who can count up to 20 but cannot yet add, subtract, or multiply. We also talked about their resin which my girls have also experienced while making mudkitchen concoctions. All this combined with more cursive practice made for a really great lesson! Meanwhile my 1st Grader and I read aloud a story about a Rat's wedding. . . in the story, the rat moves up from bargain to bargain swapping and trading. At first, he helps people out greatly! Even rescuing children who are hungry and in the rain and can't start a fire because all the logs are wet. The rat rescues them with some dry root he had saved! I prepared an alphabet letter "R" for rat. . . We talked about roots a lot. . . how we trip over them in the forest, how they suck up water for the trees, and how they dry out when trees are dead and fallen! It is really fun to get creative with alphabet letters pulled from stories, I feel like I could do it all year long! 😊✨ We are still block combining Botany/Ancient Civ for 1st Grade and we are still loving it!!! So many connections for my daughters to each other through their lessons, while still giving them age appropriate work. . . and Mama gets to have creative teacher fun 💛 We love you, conifers!

    The children themselves are this book. We should not learn how to teach out of any book other than the one lying open before us and consisting of the children themselves. Rudolf Steiner ~ If this photograph had sound, you'd hear the most beautiful singing coming from the child painting it. He often sings whilst painting because he is happy. There are no hard lines here to box him in, so he is allowed to let his spirit roam free here without judgement. The result is an outer display of the happiness from within. An important thing to notice here is the flow in which the happiness travels. The happiness is not an external thing, traveling within. It is within the child and flows outwards to singing and painting. When you finally realize there are no material objects, persons or any external thing in this world that will make you happy, you will look within. Then you will find it. No Child Left Behind The Waldorf pedagogy is an inclusive one and that is why it works and has been for one hundred years. You don't have to be in a certain social, religious or economic group to participate. Everyone is included. Free Waldorf Resources I've compiled a list of free Waldorf resources for homeschoolers and teachers here. I'll do my best to check back often and make sure these links still work and add as needed. * Rudolf Steiner Archive & e.Lib free Rudolf Steiner literatures * The Online Waldorf Library books and eBooks about Waldorf education (many of these are free for download) * The Mystical Kingdom a beautiful collection of verses * Waldorf Teachers Resources loads of Main Lesson pages and Lesson plans * Clara Dillingham Pierson Online Books online books for nature stories * Spirit of Trees massive folktale archive * Waldorf Inspirations lesson plans for the grades and much more * The Waldorf Approach to Mathematics Teaching in Grade 1 & 2 complete math for grades 1 & 2 * Waldorf Curriculum lesson plans and much more
