New local schools forums at OpenWaldorf!  
I've added a "Local Schools" section to the OpenWaldorf forums. There's a message topic for each U.S. Waldorf school. Hopefully this will make it easier for parents to share their experiences at their own schools, and to participate more fully in their kids' Waldorf education. We've allready got our first post up for Highland Hall Waldorf School in Northridge, CA!

The Sunfield Farm and Waldorf school in Washington State is growing a corn labyrinth. Some say the labyrinth is the inspiration for the Waldof Advent Spiral. Rudolf Steiner said "Thus is man drawn into the labyrinth of life. Both Lucifer and Ahriman are working in this labyrinth, and man has to discover how to take up the right attitude toward them."

A German scientist believes he's found the lost city of Atlantis off the coast of Spain. Rudolf Steiner believed that Atlantis was located south of contemporary Asia, which would mean Steiner's clairvoyant reading of the Akashic record was way off.
