This article documents an exploratory, values-based process involving culture, society and contemporaneity in Steiner Waldorf education. I do this by using my own developing values as a lens through which I assess and critique Steiner educational practice. Through the growing awareness and articulation of my own values, I look at notions of representation in Steiner education, and investigate the degree to which it responds to ideas of equity and social justice. I illustrate the development of my living-theory by using an action research model, working through cycles which expand gradually from personal reflection to international discussion; I articulate how these developing values in turn influence people I work with and those further afield. This process is of its nature unfinished; I record here the first seven years.
