How to Determine Their Temperament (And Yours)

One Hour Video + Handout + Charts

Due to popular demand we have created this one hour video focused on teaching you how to determine the temperaments of your friends, family and students. This video seminar will also help you determine your own temperament. You will learn the main differences between the temperaments as well as the subtle differences that can help you decide which temperament a person is. This seminar has been well received at Waldorf schools and conferences as it involves hands-on methods of learning that parents, teachers and other participants have found enjoyable and educational.

The most popular question we receive from parents and teachers is “How can I tell what temperament (person) is?” or “I have it narrowed down to two. How do I decide between the two?”. Another popular statement we hear is, “I thought I was (temperament) for years but it now I am starting to question that. Can you help?”

This seminar answers all those questions and makes determining a person’s temperament much easier.

This seminar does include a summary of all the temperaments and some basic information on working with them. However, the main focus on this seminar is in helping people determine the temperaments in other people and themselves. If you have found this process challenging then this seminar is for you!

This video is free with the Teacher Support Package and the Lifetime Family Curriculum Package. This seminar was filmed at an outdoor Waldorf retreat.

Waldorf Rhythms and Stages: From Preschool to Grade Eight

Included: Video, MP3 and PDF

Waldorf is a form of education that works with the rhythms of the child, the day, the week, the month and the year. It works with the spiritual, emotional and physical rhythms of the body. It works with the rhythm of the earth – natural foods, toys and other materials are used in Waldorf education. The rhythm of the child is the first thing we consider. What are they ready for and when are they ready for it? This E-book will help guide you through all of those stages by providing the philosophy and theme behind each stage as well as a list of specific lessons they need at each stage.

This E-book and video set will also guide you through the rhythms of the day, week, month and year. As we teach our children according to their natural rhythms this will: 1.Foster connection, interdependence, compassion, respect, teamwork and community awareness: 2.Will create natural opportunities for conflict resolution as there will be fewer conflicts: 3.Will help the child connect with their natural rhythms in nature and spirit: 4.Will free their minds to be more creative and will encourage creativity when they most need to be encouraged: 5.Will help you create a rhythm for your family that is “just right” – not too busy and not too slow. It will help you connect with the rhythms of nature, the day, the week, the months and the year. This E-book and video set is free with a Family/Lifetime Curriculum Package or Teacher Training Package.
