Waldorf Online Magazines
There is so much content out there on the internet that it is sometimes difficult to sift through it all and find the true gems!
But online magazines can be just the right thing when you want to read something that is light and pleasing to the eye.
Luckily there are a few great Waldorf online magazines that are full of inspiring articles, helpful tips and lovely images. Here are a few of my favorites.
The Wonder of Childhood
The Wonder of Childhood is an online magazine edited and maintained by Lisa Boisvert Mackenzie. Lisa is an experienced Waldorf early childhood teacher and parent who works with the Lifeways teacher training program.
Though it looks as though The Wonder of Childhood hasn’t been updated in awhile, there is a wealth of information on the site and it’s definitely worth taking a look through.
Waldorf Today is a site that is primarily known as the central hub for Waldorf teaching jobs. But on their home page they frequently publish interesting news stories about Waldorf Education around the globe. The international nature of these posts is probably what I appreciate most. I love hearing about how Waldorf schools are spreading throughout the world.
The Online Waldorf Library
The Online Waldorf Library has a section of their site dedicated to Waldorf journals, and there is some great information to be found there. I wouldn’t necessarily say that all of the articles there would qualify as “light” reading, but if you’re looking for something with a little more substance, you’re likely to find it here. Gateways, the newsletter of the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America, is published on this site. It’s definitely one of my favorites.
Rhythm of the Home
Another one of my favorites is Rhythm of the Home magazine. ROTH comes out quarterly and each issue is centered around a seasonal theme. I love how varied the articles are. In one issue you’ll find everything from how to make a Martinmas lantern to discussions weighing the pros and cons of the family bed. Every post is accompanied by beautiful photographs and a pleasant layout. (Check out my own article about the Shepherd’s Play.)
I’m sure there are some great publications out there I’m forgetting. Share them in the comments!
