My Home, Family and Community is a journey from the hearth and home to creating family and co-creating my community. What does being a homemaker mean today and how can we maintain ourself? How can we create a living chalice of family for each individual and meet the challenges of relationships? Where is my community and how can I co-create community in this time of individualism?

“The DOING in my family’s life is a blessing right now as my children have more daytime playmates/classmates/peers, my husband is busy with home construction and exploring outdoor employment with nature, and I have this time for seeds and our joyful baby. I have so enjoyed the art aspect to the program, realizing how I missed it last module. And the introspective work and Steiner content is extremely engaging for me – seems like all the spiritual research I have encountered thus far, through other teachers and lessons, are reiterated with the wisdom right now. This is a good path. “
