Discovering Waldorf :: On Handwork with Renate Hiller

The other day I was feeling anxious and stressed. My temper was short and I found myself snapping unnecessarily at my kids. It was raining and, although I knew I needed a good walk to shake the bad mood, I couldn’t face putting on my coat and braving the cold. So, instead, I nestled into a comfy spot in front of the fire and took up my knitting needles. After a few minutes of knitting, I felt my stress melt away and a calm and peacefulness descend upon my spirits. Aaaaah! Handwork can be so therapeutic.

Here is a short video on the spiritual benefits of handwork by the beautiful Renate Hiller. I bet you’ll be looking for your knitting needles after watching this.

Discovering Waldorf is a weekly series of articles written by ‘everyday’ Waldorf families. The contributors to this series share their ‘real-life’ insights and inspirations on all kinds of Waldorf topics. This series is not meant to be Waldorf philosophy in its purest form, but rather a snapshot of how we can all incorporate Waldorf ideas into our lives to help nurture and encourage the magic that is in our children. If you have a topic you wish to learn more about (or want to share) on Discovering Waldorf please contact me.

Blessings and magic,

Donni

  2. I absolutely love this video. I have tagged it so I can watch it again and again. It is reminding me to do more of this with my older children.
