In this second pedagogical course in the Winter 2020 series, Waldorf educator Donna Simmons will give a comprehensive overview of child development as a foundation for Waldorf education. During this four-day learning block, pedagogical and therapeutic eurythmist Brigida Baldszun will also provide essential aspects of pedagogical eurythmy with an emphasis on the incarnating process of the child.
Donna Simmons has been involved in Waldorf education as a student, teacher (early years to high school), youth worker, and parent educator all her life. She founded Christopherus Homeschool Resources 17 years ago, and has worked with thousands of parents and Waldorf teachers through her publications, consulting services, and conferences, helping them understand the anthroposophical basis of Waldorf education so that they can understand not just what we do or how we might do it-but, most critically-why. Donna also lived in Camphill with her family, and is particularly interested in the therapeutic basis of Waldorf education.
Brigida Baldszun, an independent working eurythmist, was born and educated in Europe where she began her career. She has taught eurythmy in Waldorf schools in Europe, the US, South Africa, Russia, India, and China. Brigida performed for 12 years with the ESV Ensemble, and continues to perform both as a soloist and in the productions of Rudolf Steiner’s Mystery Dramas. For the past 10 years, she has worked actively as a eurythmy therapist in schools and in private practice.
