FOCUS OF THE ISSUE: DEEPENING

Confluence Winter Vol2 No2The Alliance for Public Waldorf Education held its annual national conference at Rudolf Steiner College from February 18-20, 2013. 250 teachers, administrators, board members, parents and friends of Public Waldorf education were in attendance.

The focus of the conference was “Toward the Deepening of Public Waldorf Education” and toward that end, the conference included three outstanding keynote addresses by liz Bevens, Ph.D., Bonnie River, M.Ed., and Betty Staley, M.A. Participants experienced morning eurythmy, choral singing, spacial dynamics and storytelling. There were eight workshops on a variety of subjects, and nine breakout conversation groups took place, along with a pre- and a post-conference training.

The Dr. Martin luther King Jr. holiday weekend was a time of renewal, exploration, collaboration and networking. In this edition of CONFlUENCE we share elements of the conference experience with our readers around the world.
