Child Study & The Art of Observation
Anouk Tompot was born and raised in Amsterdam, Holland and studied biology at the University of Amsterdam, where she received a Master’s degree and worked in the department of Biology and Society. Disillusioned by the ability of western scientific methods to address the question of what life is, Anouk explored many eastern and mystical traditions and systems. Anouk discovered a bridge between east and west when she encountered Anthroposophy and the physical, social and spiritual aspects of life came together. She is a graduate of Rudolf Steiner College and has been teaching for over 15 years in Waldorf Schools, mostly as a high school teacher, but also has experience in early childhood and grade school. She has been teaching foundation studies classes at Sound Circle for the last ten years.
