Waldorf schools are inherently self administered with decisions made on site by faculty, staff and trustees. This allows for a truly fluid educational experience; child-centered and responsive to the changing needs of the student. Our Waldorf certifications will train you in theory and methodology while simultaneously incorporating hands-on opportunities and experiential learning. This approach enhances your ability to make an immediate impact on the educational experience of your students. Become a part of this revolutionary shift in how educators are teaching, inspiring, and encouraging the next generation of learners.
This advanced track master’s program with a transdisciplinary focus on healing education is designed for those practitioners who wish to:
- Further transform and evolve their practice through applied spiritual scientific inquiry
- Develop methodological approaches to work in a disciplined and focused way with questions arising from their practice
- Conduct research in a specialized focus area of their choice
- Enhance their capacity for collaborative inquiry and work in transdisciplinary contexts
- Innovate and plant seeds for future development within their field of practice
The overall aim is to move beyond mastery of one’s established professional practice, through active engagement in contemplative and collaborative action research, based on a deepened understanding of the human being and the development of tools and capacities for applied spiritual scientific research.

Practicum and online action research projects will be undertaken in the intervening year, and a master’s project/thesis will be completed in the final fall semester.
