Newsletter Waldorf Resources
Dear reader,
here in Switzerland, the days are getting shorter and a time of contemplation and long evenings with candlelight begins. At the same time, the children in the Philippines are playing in the fresh grass and in Australia we see the start of the long summer holidays.
It is time to review the year – and yes, it has been exciting. The numbers of our online readers have almost doubled; there are now over 3000 subscribers to our newsletter in three languages and we have received praise and inspiration from many of you. Thank you so much to all of you for your support! We are looking forward to again sending you stimulating impulses in 2016.
And last but not least we would like to ask for your help: If you like our work, we would be very grateful for your financial support so that we can continue our service in three languages to the many dedicated Waldorf teachers worldwide.
See you in 2016! Your Newsletter Editors
