Do your hopes and intentions align with your daily life and work? Where is your life path taking you?

It is time to question the assumptions upon which we base our life choices, to question the inflexibility of our collective worldview, and to find alternatives to materialism and consumerism. Many challenges are at the forefront of our minds, signaling that a new approach is needed and calling for change: from the climate and environmental crisis, to rising mental health concerns in children and teens, to the realities of ongoing social injustices.

Is there a path that enables me to become a catalyst for positive change and a healer of the world’s ills?

The Foundation Studies program runs for 13-weeks, September-December, on Friday evenings and Saturdays. Students and teachers come together to envision a holistic path forward, to make connections and find colleagueship, and to discover practices that create a pathway to support well-being for us as individuals and the planet.

The Foundation Studies program, leads into our 3-year AWSNA and WECAN-recognized Waldorf Teacher Training program. The teacher training runs weekends, September-May, and includes a 4-week intensive in the summer. Our programs are informed by the original work of Rudolf Steiner, Waldorf education, and anthroposophic practices around the world, as well as complimentary philosophies and practices that support a holistic view of the human being, nature, and spirit.

Foundation Studies Tuition: $2500
