Connect, nourish, sustain

Taruna is above all a place of connection – to others, to what matters, and between the threads of the spiritual, social and practical.  Taruna is also a place to be nourished – to learn about what nourishes and how we can nourish others. As well it is a place that sustains – sustains people to serve the world around them, and to work in ways that sustain the earth.

Courses and Workshops

Art of Well-being

The Art of Well-being is a foundational year to explore three interrelated themes of well-being, art and biography. This programme is part time over one year with three five day intensive seminars.

Rudolf Steiner Education

Taruna offers professional development and preparatory courses for teachers, would-be teachers and others wanting to explore a new educational environment – one that honours and addresses what it means to be fully human.

Anthroposophic Nursing

Taruna College, with the endorsement of the Anthroposophic Nurses Association in NZ, offers the Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing (FCAN) which will prepare nurses to work with external treatments including working with the parts of the Rhythmical Einreibung (Rhythmical Body Oiling).

Spirited Childhood

A workshop series for early childhood teachers and carers working with children from birth to three years.

Short Courses

Taruna partners are independent adult educators who work out of the Taruna approach to adult learning and the understandings of anthroposophy.  Their work is endorsed by Taruna.
