5 lectures by Michaela Glöckler at the West Coast Waldorf Teachers' Conference, February 1998

Dr. Michaela Glöckler focuses first on the "pedagogical law" suggested by Rudolf Steiner in his lecture course Education for Special Needs. She illumines the comprehensiveness of that law, the insights it offers into the fourfold human nature, and the karmic effects of our fourfold activity from life to life.

Next, she takes us on a path that starts with the physical body, pointing to some of the wonders of embryological development, and then makes us aware of the further growth rhythms of the brain and other organs. She demonstrates the difference between human beings and animals and shows how, in animals, wisdom and intelligence have formed the physical body and express themselves through instinct.

Dr. Glöckler opens new doors of understanding for teachers that can lead to a clearer understanding of the significance that the release of intelligence from the body plays in human development."
