Our first Steiner/Waldorf Advent

Winter is dark,

Yet each tiny spark

Brightens the way to Christmas Day,

Shine little light

And show us the way

To the bright light

Of Christmas Day

For those inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner, Advent is often celebrated in a particular way. This year we are embracing it for the first time. Our ‘Waldorf Advent’ 2016 begins on Sunday 27th November and on this day we will begin our journey towards Christmas.

We have a great Advent guide from Waldorf Essentials (available within the ‘Festivals’ portion of Thinking Feeling, Willing) which consists of four, weekly stories suitable for young children and this is what we will be using as the backbone. We will then add a related activity each week to compliment the story and deepen our experience. We will also be joining in with our very first Advent Spiral at our Steiner group which we are very excited about. 

In preparation, we are meeting some friends from our group at the beach this week to gather stones and shells for next week’s group activities.
