Hiya,

 

I've found a lot of Waldorf-inspired resources and books/resources over the years that have helped me with ideas to inspire my girls when they were younger, but now they are 8 and 9 1/2 yo I'm looking for things to support this new segment age in Waldorf.

 

Can you lovely mamas here suggest books, blogs, ideas to help me with my daughters now they are older and in this "middle age"? We are always exploring nature and art, but now, I'm wondering how best to help them with their body awareness and body image, especially their time the non-Waldorfy friends and acquaintances in our lives.

 

Also, are there any ideas how I can meet Waldorf inspired people in Raleigh, NC area with children around the same age? (We are not HSing.)

 

Thank you so much in advance.

Hiya mamas,

 

Thought I'd share some books that I discovered that complement Steiner's works and have added fueled my ideals over the past year about the importance of staying so very close to nature with my children.

 

Joseph Cornell, Sharing Nature With Children, and Sharing the Joy of Nature: Nature Activities for All Ages

Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods

Twelve by Twelve, A One-Room Cabin Off the Grid and Beyond the American Dream, William Powers (below s a review I did about it)

Discovered this beautiful book and was completely drawn in. As someone who is concerned by the fast-paced-too-often negligent nature of our modern world, I constantly look for ways to simplify my life and stay connected with the present moment. I often daydream about living in the woods deliberately, as Thoreau once did, although I don't have the adacity to do it full-blown without electricity as the author did.

Powers' book is a 21st C memoir of his experiment in living simply, in the woods, becoming mindful to the simplicities and complexities of being human, while considering the implications of our modern culture. This book is refreshing, thought provoking, and after I read it, left me feeling like I too had lived in the woods with him. I find myself living with greater commitment to --as Powers suggests-- living well instead of striving to live better: to more fully believe and accept that I have enough without buying/consuming more.

 

These books offers lots of nature-based activities through the seasons, especially lovely for girls

          Circle Round: Raising Children in Goddess Traditions

          Moon Mother, Moon Daughter: Myths and Rituals that Celebrate a Girl's Coming of Age

 

If anyone has other book suggestions, please share!
