Homemaking as a Social Art: Creating a Home for Body, Soul, and Spirit

Today, social and economic pressures affect the traditional role of the homemaker. Emphasis is placed on the working world instead of home life, and many struggle to function in several roles at once. This increasingly hectic climate has tended to downgrade of the work of the homemaker.

Taking a spiritual perspective inspired by Rudolf Steiner, Veronika van Duin suggests that homemaking needs to be undertaken consciously as an honored and valued area of work, as nothing less than a “social art.” She asserts that, by elevating our regard for the homemaker, we can enjoy a happier and more contented family and home life.

The author does not claim any blueprint for perfect homemaking, but offers principles and observations based on a study of the seven “life processes” and how they affect us. She addresses the significance of rhythm, relationships, artistic environment, caring, self-development, and much more in this invaluable book.

About the Author

Veronika van Duin was born in Scotland and trained as a nursery nurse. For many years, together with her own family, she lived with people with special needs and later took in teenage boarders. Her experiences led to a search for ways to create a home that would contribute to a truly sound and healthy society. She lives with young children with special needs and leads seminars and workshops for homemakers. She is married and her three children are now adults.
