"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone it will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence." ~ Daniel Hudson Burnham

When you visit Four Winds you will experiences a real sense of wonder and beauty all around and one is almost tempted to call it our setting idyllic, as the pace of life feels slow, almost a step back into a time when life moved more slowly.

What goes on here is neither idyllic nor a step back into some mythical gentler past. Since 1993, Four Winds has been earnestly engaged in the work of the Anthroposophical disciplines of Curative Education, Youth Guidance and Social Therapy.

The insights of these three Anthroposophical disciplines were first described by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) and later further developed into the first “Camphill” children’s village by Dr. Karl König, an Austrian pediatrician, in 1939 in Aberdeen, Scotland. The primary the principle of these disciplines is that each human being possesses a healthy, whole, and intact spirit which can be nurtured and educated, regardless of handicaps.

"Men who for truth and honor's sake stand fast and suffer long. Brave men who work while others sleep, who dare while others fly... They build a nation's pillars deep and lift them to the sky." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
