The BEarth Institute Feedback
Scroll below in the box to see some of the wonderful feedback we've received...
From all the comparison I have done on ND distance programs (and I looked at them all) yours teaches the same things they do, yet your program is much more affordable. I am excited and I feel I am learning so much more then most Traditional ND programs would teach. You Reflexology program goes into so much more detail on meridians and your program in general teaches so much more on other traditions of natural medicine. I love it. - Jennifer (Canada), Student of The Avicenna Institute
I am a Steiner teacher in Australia....I just purchased some of your Waldorf e-books. They are fantastic! Thank you for creating such practical and inspiring books. - Sue, Purchased Waldorf E-books
love the new student website. It looks very professional. - Ann N., Student of The Avicenna Institute
I just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with your website. At first I was very overwhelmed; not being the most computer savvy person on this planet, but then I began to realize that the longer I stay with your school, the more there is to be found on your school's website. - Betsy QF., Student of The Avicenna Institute.
I'm already glad I upgraded. The Kids Can Heal section is WONDERFUL! My oldest daughter, now 23, was educated at home, fully Waldorf-inspired. I spent many, many hours putting together materials and finding my way through the questions and techniques. Earthschooling has made homeschooling my 9-year old daughter sinfully simple. THANK YOU!! - Lynn T.
Thank you so much for what obviously is a lot of hard work and commitment on your part! So far I am really really impressed and only wish I would have found this earlier! We've been homeschooling for going on 10 years, using Oak Meadow curriculum when we want some guidance, and now that I've found EarthSchooling I'm wishing I could go back in time and do it with my girls, too, who are now 16 and 13. - Donna, Member of Earthschooling
I just wanted to thank you again. You did my transcript quickly and I am so impressed with how formal and professional it looks. It is wonderful and I am glad that I am doing so well, but it doesn't surprise me because I love your courses!!!!!! - Jennifer P. in Canada, Student at The Avicenna Institute
I have begun to proceed thought the course, going slowly as I am finishing my internship for a master's in TCM. I enjoy the information and find it valuable in my practice in my personal health. I am happy for the opportunity to share in the knowledge you've ammassed, and thank you for your work. The information I've learned so far has already begun to benefit the lives of my patient's and my family. - Justin P., Student at The Avicenna Institute
I have been looking for something like what you' re doing for 5 years - no - eight years...I look forward to working with you and congratulations on the splendid work you do!!!! - Marie, Member of Earthschooling
I've only just discovered Kristie's Waldorf Enrichment, and can't speak with much depth about its offerings...only to say that I *love* what I am seeing. Kristie's videos are Great for multi-age lessons, and being able to see on the video how she interacts with the individual child on his/her level is much more clear than reading about it. - Kimberly, Member of Earthschooling and Student of The Avicenna Institute
You have really shown that you are truly interested in educating your students. You make yourself available beyond what is necessary. - Tonya, Student of The Avicenna Institute
" I read your comments for my first Quiz and I want to thank you from my heart for all of them. I loved reading every single one...Thank You for having this course online and making it easy to learn no matter what distance there is. Your time is very much appreciated and I hope to be a great student. Thanks for the fun, I love and enjoy all this!" - Claudia, Student of The Avicenna Institute
Your text is so, so warm, your words so shiny, the mood of your letter so enthusiastic, all with a sharing spirit that all that fulfilled my heart, and I decided to say that to you...thank you for warming hearts!- Heloisa in Brasil, Visitor to The Waldorf Channel
The other day Em was ranking her activities by comparing them to the vegetables she liked. Your Waldorf classes came out on top and were compared to fresh sweet corn with butter and salt!!I thought that was cute. The second best, Jazz, was canned corn. - Kirsten, Parent of Earthschooling Child, Enrichment Classes in Des Moines
I have used it (Su-Jok Reflexology) several times with my daughter since the class. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise with us! - Laura, Student of The Avicenna Institute
"I am enjoying your courses very much and want to thank you for providing them at such a reasonable cost." - Riki, Student of The Avicenna Institute
I wanted to let you know how far your good work has traveled. Maddie taught my sister, Bridget and her daughter, Izzy how to finger knit. They both caught on quite quickly (opposed to me) and absolutely love knitting and visiting together. Izzy is 9 months older than Maddie. I have been sending my sister some of your informative emails and she loves them. - Margie, Parent of Earthschooling Child, Enrichment Classes in Des Moines
I want to thank you for the wonderful program you have enabled for us all. We truly are the blessed! - Cyndie, Member of Earthschooling
"You are a great teacher!" - Janet, Student at The Avicenna Institute
"Thank You for the corrections and comments on my assignments! I have really been enjoying the course and have actually made it a priority since it is so benefical to the whole family! I'm glad that my test results show that I'm taking it very seriously!" - Kimberly, TX
I have Augusts lesson plans and am quite surprised at how adaptable your work is [... for SH members] I was really impressed to see that you have considered us. Thank you - Carle In the South Hemisphere, Member of Earthschooling
Kristie, You are amazing and so inspiring and helpful to us all via your wonderful "projects". Thanks so much! - Emily, Member of Earthschooling
"Thanks so much. I really love reading the comments you add. It really does help students in knowing where they may need to improve or where they do know what they are doing!! I recieved my Herbal Preparations diploma today. Thanks so much." - Jennifer, Student of The Avicenna Institute
"Just had to tell you again that this was a great video. These are so helpful with a distance program." - J.P., Student at The Avicenna Institute
I am still amazed at the amount of information you have on your sites! I wish I had known about you sooner! - Robin, Member of Earthschooling
Thank you, Kristie for that wonderful video of Waldorfizing your lesson plan. I was trying to figure out how to mesh some CM material without feeling like i had to "give up" my Waldorf theory that I love so much. And you came to me at just the right time!!! - Chris, Viewer of The Waldorf Channel
I used the Quick Start page last night and it was so easy. I'm new to homeschooling and I don't have hours of free time to pour over material. I also want to do a thorough job of planning. Thank you for simplifying the process of getting started - I get it and I'm excited about diving into the details!! - MM, Member of Earthschooling
I would like to add that I have learned so much from this unit! I cannot believe how my thought process has changed just by reading this one unit... It has started me on a path hungry for knowledge. - Jill K., Student of The Avicenna Institute
"I thank you for making Naturopathic classes available to many people! For ALL THANKS!" - Claudia A., Student at The Avicenna Institute
This unit on typology has been overwhelming, yet very enlightening for me. During my college years and experience teaching English and History, I have encountered the concepts discussed in this unit viz., humor, temperament, melancholic, choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic etc.---but I never understood these terms in their complete historical and medical sense until now. - Aida, Student of The Avicenna Institute
I received my copy of your book, "The Temperaments and the Adult-Child Relationship" today. It is so big ! It looks amazing and I can't wait to begin my reading! With gratitude and joy, Jacinthe, Purchased Books from BEarth Publishing
My girls still have the unicorns you knitted for their 4th birthday.. we were going through their toys and de-cluttering and Brooke grabbed her unicorns and said, "Not these! :)" - Donna A., Purchased Unicorns from Earthcrafting
"Kristie, I just finished your book "The Temperaments and the Adult-Child Relationship" and was so impressed! What a GREAT book! I learned so much, it is priceless information when it comes to relationships with others. Thank you!" - Riki, Purchased books from BEarth Publishing
Thank you for being so careful and professional and prompt in your response. It speaks volumes to me about your integrity. I will certainly look again at purchasing more through your site. - Rose, Customer of The BEarth Institute
I invite all Waldorf & Earthschooling
teachers & parents to contact me about contributing videos to this site. I envision that this will become a place where we can all come to learn more about Waldorf education, how to integrate other methods with Waldorf and how to integrate Waldorf into other methods of education. All the videos on this site illustrate Waldorf educational methods except for the link called "EarthSchooling". This links takes you into the realm of other educational methods such as Montessori, Unschooling, etc...
