The Gabriel Conversation Groups

Exploring parenting and the life of the young child, based upon the work of Rudolf Steiner.

  • Inspiration and sharing
  • Support and discussion
  • Companionship and morning tea

 The Gabriel Conversation Group offers parents of very young children from birth a place to share their experiences of parenting, enjoy morning tea and support one another.

Parenting is one of the great joys of life, but also brings its challenges! In the Conversation Group, new parents find inspiration, a sense of community and a place to recharge ourselves with good company, a coffee and a laugh.

The Gabriel Conversation Group is parent focused. During our sharing together we have wide ranging and rich discussions about issues of interest, including pregnancy, child development, breastfeeding, sleep routines, post-natal care and wellbeing.

We are joined by an ‘elder’- a mother and grandmother who has supported new mothers for many years, and who provides guidance for our conversation, to explore Rudolf Steiner’s recommendations for the young child.
