PAST EVENTS

 

Social Media and the Search for Community
With Keynote Speaker, Lowell Monke
At the Waldorf School of Garden City, N
Y

Saturday April 22, 2017
Many of us have seized on this new 21St Century technology to try to recapture the sense of community that the 20th century technologies have helped to take away. A community is not just a group of people with a common interest, but many individuals sharing commitments, common experiences, and traditionally, a common public space. We are constantly reminded to reveal as little about ourselves as possible online. How do you build a community when everyone remains hidden behind a veil of semi-anonymity?

A Discussion with Parents:
Why the Care of the Senses is Important for Your Child

Date: January 19th
Time: 6:30 - 8:00pm
Place: Shepherd Valley Waldorf School

Suggested Donation: $5

How does your child begin to connect with the world, even in infancy? Many a marketer will sell you toys, as
well as educational strategies for making your baby more intelligent. Book companies are ready to help with early
reading; TV shows are waiting to entertain. How do parents make their ways through the hundreds of "pulls" to
sell to the baby and younger child, to a simpler, cohesive way of raising the child and helping his/her
development?

Rudolf Steiner gave many ideas on the development of the child and its early connections to the world, among
them a new way of looking at learning and the sense, all twelve of them! He suggests how early development
supports later higher order thinking, as well as strengthening artistic and mental growth of the child.

Come to this lecture and discussion to share your concerns and explore your questions from a new vantage point.
