Michael Burton has worked with artistic speech and drama for over 35 years – as a writer, speech performer, actor, speech therapist and voice teacher. He is the author of In the Light of a Child (Anthroposophic Press, 1988), Steiner’s Soul Calendar turned into poems for children and used by many Steiner teachers and parents. He has written and performed one-man-plays about Rembrandt, Beethoven, Dag Hammarskjold, and World War II kiwi soldier, Jim Henderson. Today he is based in Sydney where he practices speech therapy and chirophonetics (a form of speech and soul therapy in which sounds are brought into contact with the body) and gives speech workshops in China. He has a commission from Lemniscate Arts in the U.S. to write the script for a play that will follow on from Steiner’s Four Mystery Dramas.

Review Funny, intense, frightening, philosophical, lyrical, and ribald in surprising turns were the varying moods evoked in the one-hour performance.  Michael presented a thought-provoking lark of an evening for his audience.  With minimal props and maximal skill, he brought to life dozens of characters and myriad questions about death, life love, comedy, and wisdom.  — P. Maynard, Oct 2015

Adult Ed: Community Lecture, Jan 8

Valley of the Sun Waldorf Education Association & The Center for Anthroposophy welcome guest lecturer, Michael D’Aleo, to The Phoenix Foundation Studies to discuss:

The Possibility of Karma & Reincarnation?
Friday, January 8th, 2016, Community Lecture: 7-9pm
$10 Fee Paid at the Door

Michael D’Aleo sets out to explore the inquiry into the possibility of Karma and Reincarnation by investigating the origins in Eastern and Western thought. By looking through the lens of each of these spiritual streams, we will examine experiences in our own lives and observable threads in our children. From this, we can begin to form our own conclusions on this intriguing topic.  

Michael D’Aleo lectures nationally and internationally on the topics of science, education and environmental issues and is a founding member of the Saratoga Experiential Natural Science Research Institute (SENSRI) as the Director of Research. He was a co-founder of the high school at the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs where he taught physical science and astronomy. Mr. D’Aleo is also an instructor of Waldorf School physical science teachers at The Center for Anthroposophy as well as a guest teacher at various teacher training institutions and Waldorf Schools. Mr. D’Aleo has a Mechanical Engineering degree and a Masters degree in Education.  Mr. D’Aleo is co-author of the book Sensible Physics Teaching, a guide for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade educators to teach physics in a manner relevant to the experience of the students. He is also the author of Embracing Materialism and Letting It Go – An experiential guide to overcoming an object-based world conception.
