Octave is a collection of eight essays from a master Waldorf teacher and includes chapters on how to motivate children, parent-teacher relationships, and the school organization as a living organism. Included is a chapter that questions whether moral principles can be taught, as well as an essay entitled “The Seven Cosmic Artists: an Artistic View of Child Development,” teaching children and young people by educating the whole person of body, soul, and spirit in a balanced way. Such an education can be carried out only if the educator is aware how in evolution the physical is formed out of the soul and spirit. One can participate in the education of a being only if one understands the laws of this education.

This book is filled with gems to be mined by teachers, parents, students of spiritual science, and scholars. Throughout, the reader will find a voice wise with experience and warmth of heart, a source of encouragement and advice.
