About the Author:

John H. Wulsin Jr. grew up in Cincinnati, Japan, and Switzerland. He worked as an instructor with Outward Bound on Hurricane Island, Maine, and in the Austrian Alps before discovering Waldorf education. After completing his Waldorf training at Emerson College in England, he completed his B.A. in English at Harvard College before teaching in two non-Waldorf independent high schools. For twenty-seven years, John has been teaching English and Drama at Green Meadow Waldorf School in Chestnut Ridge, New York, from which his children have graduated. With an M.A. in English and American Literature from Columbia University, he has also devoted many years to teaching Poetics to adults at the Eurythmy School of Spring Valley, New York, at the Threefold Educational Foundation. He also teaches high school pedagogy at Sunbridge College, New York, and frequently teaches at the Waldorf High School Training at Rudolf Steiner College in Fair Oaks, California. John works on the editorial board of Renewal: A Journal for Waldorf Education and has published articles in Independent School, Towards, and Renewal. His books include Laws of the Living Language and Proverbs of Purgatory and as editor, The Riddle of America, all published by the Association of Waldorf School of North America (AWSNA). He is also coeditor of Books for the Journey, from Michaelmas Press.
