About Horst Hellmann
Born in 1943 in Germany. Horst Hellmann has spent 30 years teaching in Steiner schools. Since 1982 he has been giving seminars to teachers who want to be Steiner Waldorf teachers in Australia, India, Philippines, Thailand and Taiwan. He has been involved in setting up of 14 schools across Australia and Asia, as well as the teacher training seminar in Iloilo in 2005. In 2004, he resigned from active teaching and became more active in Asia, especially supporting new initiatives. At present he is focusing on a young waldorf-inspired school in Davao, Tuburan Institute, and Dulyapat in Khonkaen, Thailand.

Workshop Topics
23rd May 2015 (Saturday)

Morning Session (8:15am – 12pm): 12 Senses
While natural science maintains that we have only 5 senses, Steiner shows that in reality we have 12. Understanding the 12 senses offers a glimpse into why some things are done the way they are in a Waldorf environment. This topic starts off our 2 day workshop and serves as an introduction to all the rest of the topics that follows.

Afternoon Session (1pm – 4:30pm): Nutrition, TV and Value of Play
Nutrition, TV and Free Play, they all play a very important role in the behaviour of children. Are we giving them enough good nutrition? Too much TV or screen time?
Not enough free play? How do all these affect our children?

24th May 2015 (Sunday)

Morning Session (8:15am – 12pm): Marriage and Partnership & Drawing with Partner
In the journey of marriage and partnership, it is essential to learn how to deal with the power in human relationship and how to create conditions for lifelong development and health. The human relationship is a spiritual necessity in our biography.

Afternoon Session (1pm – 4:30pm): Danger of early learning in Kindergarten
Children will learn new skills when they are ready. A baby will learn how to crawl up the stairs step by step and foot by foot when they have mastered the motor skills required. However, how do we know when our children have mastered the cognitive skills required for learning in kindergarten? Are we pushing them “down the stairs”?
