There is increasing interest in Dalton education. For many parents, teachers and principals, the principles of this form of innovative education offer a direction to take in the further development of their schools. The origin of Dalton education lies in America. Its initiator, Helen Parkhurst, began her teaching career in rural Wisconsin more than a hundred years ago, in the autumn of 1904. She taught her students to work on assignments independently, with the freedom to plan and complete them as they saw fit, enlisting each other's help and the teacher's assistance when needed. Since then, Dalton education has evolved, but the essence of what Parkhurst intended has remained. As the popularity of Dalton education grows, so does the need for information about Parkhurst's life, her ideas, and her own teaching experiments. This biography aims to meet that need. It paints a picture of a woman who wanted to give children a voice in their work and in their own lives and succeeded in doing so through her tirelessness and powerful personality. But that drive also led to conflicts, disillusions and disappointments.

Holistic pulsing

Holistic Pulsing is natuurlijk en plezierig. Het is een methode van het zacht en vloeiend aanbieden van een wiegende en strekkende beweging in een bepaald ritme en volgens een speciale techniek. Hierdoor wordt je lichaam teruggevoerd naar zijn eigen oerritme, wat verbonden is met de onbewuste herinnering aan zijn ontstaan in het water van de koesterende, veilige baarmoerder. Dit brengt een diepe ontspanning teweeg, die ontkoppelt van angst en overlevingspatronen en die contact laat voelen met je essentie, die inzichten geeft in je leven. Tevens wordt je zelfhelende vermogen geactiveerd.Omdat Holistic Pulsing heel subtiel en diepgaand kan werken vinden steeds meer hooggevoeligen hun weg naar deze voor hen zo passende methode.
