What you might not know about Rahima, though, is that she hosts a couple of excellent AP/Waldorf conferences each year and this year, this October to be specific, she’s hosting Waldorf in the Home at Shining Mountain Waldorf School in Boulder, Colorado.

You can learn more about the conference at the Informed Family Life web site, or just sign up and make your travel arrangements to visit beautiful Boulder, Colorado on October 23rd and 24th for a weekend of fun, information and thought-provoking discussion!
