“The many words of appreciation from parents and teachers who have participated in the My Child Myself programs over the years affirms its value for them and the school. I am most aware, however, of the developing opportunity it has provided for me personally. It has been a privilege to work with the amazing program you created and to co-facilitate it with Carol.” Connie White, London Waldorf School, Fall 2018
“I am an adult educator in my life and work. This course was the first time I experienced the group as really part of the learning. The safe and trusting space led to an opening up. This way of learning points to the future.” Li Zhang, Chengdu Teacher Training, China. New Adult Educator 2016/18
“While I was in Taiwan, I was working with the New Adult Learning Processes. It was amazing….not all, but many of the students took the five images from the process we did at the end of each of the five days and made a poem, collage or painting. One student gathered small “icons” ~~ a pine cone, a ribbon etc ~~ and put them with a poem into a glass jar with a beautiful cork stopper. Many said that the daily ending was the most meaningful because it required them to “own” the material.
I taught at LifeWays and used the process twice, at the end of two blocks of teaching. The students were, again, totally engaged in making it their own. So, I just wanted to say Thank You! I am honored to join you in this work, even this little bit.” Sharifa Oppenheimer, Heaven on Earth, A Handbook for Parents of Young Children
