Dr. Michaela Glöckler begins by focusing on the “pedagogical law” as suggested by Rudolf Steiner in his lecture course Education for Special Needs. She illumines the comprehensiveness of that law—the insight it offers into the functions of our fourfold human nature and the karmic effects of our fourfold activity from one life to another.
She then takes us on a path that starts with the physical body, pointing to some of the wonders of embryological development, and then brings to our consciousness further growth rhythms of the brain and other organs. She demonstrates the difference between human and animal and shows how, in animals, wisdom and intelligence have formed the physical body and express themselves through instinct.
Dr. Michaela Glöckler opens new doors of understanding for teachers that lead to a deeper understanding of the significance of releasing intelligence from the body for human development.
