Did you know? Steiner believed inner work was an essential practice for those guiding children.


Rudolf Steiner believed the self-development of teachers to be integral to effective teaching. He gave guidance, including what are often referred to as the “six basic exercises,” and other indications on this theme in his lectures. A recent AWSNA blog post called upon Waldorf teachers and administrators to—given current events—engage in inner work:


“We are emerging from a time in history when many of our daily life activities have been dictated by urgency and crises. As we begin to see an end to necessity driving this certain way of being, it becomes all the more important for us to slow down and engage in inner work for the children in our schools, for our colleagues, and for ourselves.


Rudolf Steiner believed inner work was an essential practice for those guiding children to reach their full potential. He stated, ‘You will not be good teachers if you focus only on what you do and not upon who you are.’”
