Straight from the Heart(land): Building Regenerative Communities with Michael D'Aleo
Rudolf Steiner's inspiration for Waldorf education grew out of a need for social and cultural renewal. Today, as we face tremendous social, economic and ecological challenges, collaboration with others is imperative to building regenerative communities. On the banks of the Mississippi River, at the edge of the plains of the great bison, before one of the gateways to the west, let us come together to explore a new, more conscious connection between the spiritual and the material. Out of acknowledging the wisdom of the past and being present- what future will we co-create?

Intuition and Innovation in Waldorf Schools: Exploring New Impulses
Intuition is the source for all truly new innovations. How do we begin to cultivate the quality of new thinking in ourselves as teachers and also in our students? Although the foundation of Waldorf Education upholds theses ideals, how do we activate our own inner activity to bring these qualities to life? Keynote speaker Michael D'Aleo explores ways in which Waldorf teachers can apply a phenomenological approach to their own teaching.
