    The Angels and the Eightfold Path

    Spring Valley, New York – Spring 2017

     

    Through the practice of the Middle Way, The Eightfold Path, we have the opportunity to bring our destiny into order. We begin to be concerned with our task in the same way as our angel is concerned. This path, faithfully followed, leads us out of ourselves and into the world.

     

    This is a course dedicated to a deepened exploration of the faculties and practice that join us to the spiritual world. We will engage in artistic exercises, biography work and conversation, bringing together our questions and experiences.

     

    Open to all, including those new to anthroposophy.
     

    This is a core course that supports Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy.

     

    The course will meet on three Saturdays and one Sunday from 9:30am to 3:30pm at Green Meadow Waldorf School in Spring Valley, New York.

    "There Slumber in Every Human Being"

    A Course to Awaken Us to Our Own Relationship to the Spiritual Worlds

    Spring Valley, New York – Autumn 2016

     

    The world stands more than ever in need of insights and actions that are born of the spirit, but what is our connection to the spiritual world? How can we find knowledge and insight to help us connect to ourselves, to others and to the spiritual world in a responsible way.

    We will engage in artistic exercises, biography work and conversation to explore this territory, bringing together our questions, experiences and practices.

     

    Open to all, including those new to anthroposophy.

     

    This is a core course that can support any Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy program.

    The Seven Year-Cycles and the Biography of the Soul

    Human Development in the Light of Anthroposophy

    Spring Valley, New York – Autumn 2015

     

    Our lives unfold in seven-year cycles related to the development of new aspects of the body, soul and spirit.

    Artistic activities and exercises, as well as discussion, will be intrinsic components of this course.

     

    Open to all, including those new to biography work and anthroposophy, this course will also serve those who already have experience with this work.

  • ABOUT

     

    I am a counselor, adult educator and Waldorf high school teacher with a private counseling and consulting practice. I have over 25 years of experience using an anthroposophical approach in helping individuals, couples, groups and organizations.

     

     

    In addition to my extensive work in Waldorf education and anthroposophical studies, I also have completed trainings in biography counseling and psychosynthesis.

     

    I have been the director and a faculty member of Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy in Spring Valley, NY and Brooklyn, NY.  

    My counseling work seeks to help you understand your own biography. 

    Through enlivening conversation and artistic exercises that reflect on your life story, you can find patterns and threads that guide you to uncover or rediscover the intentions and meaning of your life. 

     

    These insights allow you to recognize yourself as the author of your own story, giving you the power to more mindfully shape its path into the future.

     

  • CONTACT

    My counseling and consulting practice is based in Rockland County, NY and New York City. 

    I also teach, consult and lead workshops in the United States, China and throughout Latin America.
