Online Holy Nights Lectures with Eugene Schwartz
December 25 through January 6

For over a century, the twelve Holy Nights have provided Waldorf class teachers with a space and a time to assess their tasks and possibilities as educators. While "Do I still wish to remain with my class?" is the most important question a teacher will ask, this is also the time to judge one’s relationship to the parents of the class, to one’s colleagues, and to the school. 

Over the past few years, a growing number of teachers have found it more challenging to ponder their destiny during the time between Christmas and Three Kings’ Day. The onset of pressures concerning vaccinations, masks, distance learning, DEI, the Metaverse, and other issues have complicated the teacher’s Holy Nights task. In these turbulent times, many teachers may be wondering how much Waldorf education still matters — to them, personally, to the leadership of their school, and to the world.

With these challenges in mind, Eugene Schwartz is offering a series of five Holy Nights lectures that may serve as a companion and "guide for the perplexed." If you are one of the thousands of teachers who has participated in any of Eugene’s Online Conferences, you already know the combination of insight and practicality, as well as the depth and breadth that he brings to every aspect of Waldorf education.

These pre-recorded lectures will be available online for $125 only during the Holy Nights (December 25 - January 6). One may listen online any time during that 12-day period. On the evening of January 5th, Eugene will lead a live Zoom meeting in which he will address questions from participants.
Registration is now open.
