Newsletter Waldorf Resources #6
Show this newsletter correctly?
Dear reader,
Our latest newsletter introduces a new organ:
artistic feeling as an organ of cognition. Why not donate this organ to your classroom! Do you actually feel up-to-date with only the romance of the campfire but without a prima donna and a Barbie doll? If so, feel inspired by the coca plant, by glittery façades next to slums and please consider the possibilities of dialogue in the development of new school festivals. Should all of this get too much for you, just concentrate on the subconscious and attend one of the regional conferences on the significance of sleep.
With kind regards from the editors!
