Below are Home Schooling, Course and Workshop Testimonials.
This past year, I was lucky enough to be a part of Robin Theiss' biography workshop. Having never studied any of Steiner's work, I was worried that the content and ideas presented throughout the workshops would be too abstract for me to grasp. However, through Robin's incredible teaching abilities I was able to understand the concepts of anthroposophy in a very detailed and comprehensive way.
The workshops, ending in a three-day retreat in Malibu, were perfectly thought out and executed. With Robin's leadership, the whole group developed a bond that was built on a foundation of trust and mutual respect. The nature of biography work is extremely personal. Robin's genuine care, openness, and warmth immediately makes one feel completely comfortable. This biography workshop was a beautiful and completely enlightening experience that only was it was because of Robin Theiss.
There isn’t a review I could write that could truly justify how life-altering Robin Theiss’ courses and workshops are. I was lucky enough to be her student through four years of high school. Though I graduated two years ago, Robin has continued to mentor, advise, and guide me through my academic, my spiritual, and my personal life. This year I was reminded again how powerful her workshops are after I participated in the ‘Uncovering your biography’ workshop. Every single workshop I have taken under Robin’s guidance has been thought-provoking, reflective, and deeply impactful. One of the most beautiful things to witness throughout these workshops is the way people from all different backgrounds and ages come together in a very sacred and unexpected way to form a bond. Robin will always choose to see you in your best light, will challenge you to grow into your most authentic self, and she is truly such a patient and loving guiding light to so many people. Her workshops are filled with time to reflect or write alone, one-on-one sessions, and group activities, sharing, and exercises. Having taken so many courses with Robin, I have seen countless times the way these courses inspire vulnerability, softness, power, healing, and anthroposophical learning in all of her participants, and the way these experiences are reflected back into the world by each individual. I could not recommend participating in one of her workshops more.
Words can not express the value Robin Theiss has brought to our child's educational journey. The confidence to homeschool our son would not be possible without Robin's guidance and talents. As parents, we wanted to customize our son's education with a curriculum that is more inline with our own family's beliefs. Robin is using our chosen curriculum as well as enriching it with her expertise as a distinguished Waldorf Educator. There are many different ways to measure a child's success. Our son is happy and excited to have his lessons with Robin, homework included. He has improved his State Testing results in EVERY category to exceeding and FAR above grade level- almost 6 months ahead of the next grade! This learning efficiency has given us the luxury of more free time to pursue my son's ever growing interest in sports. Most recently, he has been chosen to be an All Star player on our local Little League Baseball Team. He has learned to surf this year. He also finally had time to play flag football this Spring, the list goes on and on. This year has been a gigantic confidence booster for my son, and if you ask him, his best year ever! What more could a parent want for their child?
None of this would be possible without having someone I trust with my son's education. That someone is Robin Theiss.
