This new bestseller by Valentin Wember shows the original mission of Waldorf education: 

It is meant to introduce a Copernican turning-point in education. 
It was to be a pioneering project for centuries to come.

Astoundingly, “The Five Dimensions of Waldorf Education” is the first account of Waldorf education which portrays all its aspects and not just excerpts. Above all, it lays bare Waldorf education’s ‘DNA’, which is needed for the further development of Waldorf schools in the future.

Even experienced teachers give remarkable feedback on reading it:
“An amazing book: it makes a lot of facts transparent, of which I may say, I was not aware of that”.
“I had hardly any idea of the third dimension of Waldorf education. A lot of the methods of the second dimension were unknown to me. To my mind the spiritual dimension of Waldorf education had never been described so openly, comprehensively or objectively before”.

The Author
Valentin Wember studied philosophy, literature, music and science of education in Hamburg, Berlin and Stuttgart. For 28 years, Wember worked with great conviction and enthusiasm as a Waldorf teacher in Stuttgart and Tübingen.
He also worked in teacher training in the USA, Switzerland and Germany. Along with being a Waldorf teacher, Wember has worked for many years in organization development, e.g. for a large South-German trade association, with the emphasis on forms of management and change management. "Sole Responsibility" was sold out in Germany after 9 months.

Valentin Wember was the Keynote Speaker at the 2019 Glenaeon Teacher Intensive.
