1. Slow Down! What’s the Rush?
Waldorf is a ‘Way of Life’ – one that includes a slow, calm pace. This is the first thing you might notice when walking into a Waldorf classroom. Ok, we get that a Waldorf classroom is peaceful and calm, but how does this happen? It starts with you. Equanimity is described as ‘mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation’. So, how do you keep this feeling going? As Michael Linsin says, “keep emotion out of it.” Students will pick up on your vibes in the classroom.
