<p>I'm investigating alternatives to Waldorf for a study group. <span><img alt="smile.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_2_1333448796833_160" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"></span></p>

<p>I found this: <a href="http://www.enkieducation.org/html/waldorf-education.htm" target="_blank">http://www.enkieducation.org/html/waldorf-education.htm</a> but I'm also wondering about anyone's real-life experiences.  Thanks!</p>

I have been working with Enki Education in our home for 7 years. In my initial exploration of schooling I looked at Waldorf schools. I stumbled across Enki online and found it was a great fit for our family. My answers here come from a limited experience with Waldorf and a deep experience working with the Enki approach.<br><br>
These are the differences that stood out for me:<br><br>
Enki does not have a foundation world view of anthroposophy.<br>
Enki is a global curriculum in which all cultures and world views have in depth study.<br>
Enki uses discovery learning in all content.<br>
In Enki movement work is informed by the field of Sensory Ingration (among other things as well) not eurythmy.<br><br>
The similarities are that both have a foundation/world view that is well defined and all that is brought to the child is informed by this view. They are arts rich and give attention to environment, and rhythms.<br><br>
There is a yahoo group for those wanted to explore Enki in more depth. There are many articles in the files section of this group. Here is the link: <a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EnkiExperience/" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EnkiExperience/</a><br><br>
Also, currently on the Enki Education Facebook page there are samples of work from Enki second graders.

<p>Thank you!  That is helpful!  I was wondering if Anthroposophy played a role in Enki or not.</p>
