Cultivating the Etheric
in Teaching
A Lecture with Jon McAlice

Monday, January 29, 7:30pm

The growing presence of the digital in our life-world experiences and impacts child development in ways we are only beginning to understand. Directly affected are children's life forces, which provide the basis for a child's capacity to trust, to be attentive, and to feel at home in the world. As the child grows, these forces work formatively within the soul as the web of memory and the life of thought. In the digital, we find a world that is the antithesis of the inner life of the growing child. It is time to better understand the nature of the etheric — the forces of life and growth — and to explore ways to strengthen it.

Jon McAlice has worked in the international Waldorf schools movement for many years and has been involved in teacher training institutes throughout Europe and in the United States, focusing primarily on questions of human development and the psychology of learning.

This event is a benefit for the ESV 4th Year class trip to Dornach, Switzerland, in June 2018.

Location: School of Eurythmy, 289 Hungry Hollow Rd., Chestnut Ridge, NY.

Admission: $20.
