Give Away for Celebrate the Rhythm of Life Program

Monthly Guides are back as through the year program!

In the words of Lisa Boisvert Mackenzie:

“I am so very excited to share with you the news of the return of the Celebrating the Rhythm of Life in Caring for Children through the Year materials.  The new format retains all of the elements you love with some expansion in a few areas. I’ve been striving to keep it all very simple, easy for you to read and digest. I have also made it more process and community oriented this time around.”

December's focus topic is the spiritual element of Waldorf early childhood. We'll talk about the child as a spiritual being, birth, protection of the child's senses, angels, night time meditation and working with the angels.

We'll look at ways to nourish family life and foster child development and bring awe, wonder and gratitude alive, bring children into cooking and household chores, nourish growing bodies and create a home culture of awe, wonder and reverence around daily life that is rooted in the spiritual elements of early childhood during this full and often too busy season.

The material is in a packet (pdf) and online along with the rest of the program. Participants may sign up for the month or for the school year, from September to July. After the first year of membership, year round members will have continued access to the program for free.
