Build New Classrooms for Ak-Lu'um Waldorf

Created February 10, 2019
This summer Ak Lu’um will move it’s Waldorf School campus to a permanent location just north of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The current campus will be dismantled, recycled and moved. Two buildings are complete at the new location and ground has been cleared and harvested for the new classrooms, garden areas and kitchen. We are seeking funds to complete this permaculture development over the summer months in time for classes in August.


Siobhan Bowers - School Founder


“We started Ak Lu'um in 2006. There were five children and two teachers who had this dream of bringing Waldorf education to the Mexican Riviera. Ak Lu'um is a Waldorf School and our philosophy encompasses contact with nature and the development of the whole human being in our spiritual, emotional and intellectual capacities, as well as learning to work with our hands and becoming more connected to each other.


Our new campus is also the beginning of a new way of seeing education and life. This is not just an education for the child, it's for the entire family. It’s to prepare us for a world that is changing and that is requiring that we make many many changes in ourselves. This is about a new world, it is about a better world, where we can better take care of our planet and of each other.” 


Hari Siliceo is the construction manager for the new campus. His plan includes the preservation of the environment and an understanding of the materials available from the jungle location.


“Building in a noble way is understanding the place. All parts of the earth have different movements, little mounds, holes and standing trees. What we are doing is considering all the trees that are there and using them in a manner that doesn’t harm nature at all.”
