Celebrating Advent

In the Southern hemisphere, Christmas falls near the Summer Solstice when the light is at its strongest and we celebrate the triumph of light at its greatest point in the yearly cycle. For thousands of years before Christianity, the Egyptians celebrated the Festival of Osiris, the Celts and Druids held great festivals of fire and light, the Hindus had the Diwali festival of lights and the Jewish celebrated Hanukkah.

As the year draws to an end in our beautiful part of the world, we increasingly spend time outside enjoying “the sun in the heavens”. With the long warm days, intense light and balmy nights we are drawn out into the elements rather than into “the sun in our hearts”. It can be challenging to develop a sense of inwardness, patience and contemplation when the Spirit of the Earth (and us) is on its outward breath. To balance this we can consciously choose to “receive the light” and celebrate what is both universally human and universally spiritual.

How Advent is celebrated in your family is a personal choice. It can provide an opportunity for some quiet ‘breathing in’ during this outwardly busy time of year and help your children to practice preparation and patience through the ritual of counting the weeks and days to the special celebratory event. The lighting of candles each week also reflects our own ‘Divine Light’ and helps to bring us a little inward contemplation.

Here are some ideas that you might like to include in your own advent celebrations:

Advent Wreath
Advent Garden
Advent Spiral
Advent Crib

Verses for the 4 weeks of Advent

Week 1: Crystal Kingdom
The first light of Advent
Is the light of stones,
Stones that shine through seashells
Crystals and in bones.

Week 2: Plant Kingdom
The second light of Advent
Is the light of plants,
Plants that reach up to the sun
And in the breezes dance.

Week 3: Animal Kingdom
The third light of Advent
Is the light of beasts,
The light of hope that we may see
In greatest and in least.

Week 4: Humankind
The fourth light of Advent
Is the light of man,
The light of hope, of thoughts,
To give and understand.

To all family, friends, and friends of friends,

Do you know anyone who may appreciate quality art and craft materials, or Steiner based toys?

We have been given the opportunity by our school wholesaler Mercurius to earn 15% on all sales from their ‘art makes sense’ website by using our school code. This would help our school, as well as busy mums and dads with an easier fundraiser.

Take a moment to see if there are any products that may benefit you or your family on the site. Please also forward to as many friends you know who may enjoy some of the products for themselves, their children or for gifts at this wonderful time of year. This offer is open to anyone a long as delivery is within Australia.

Please consider book marking the following link http://www.art-makes-sense.com.au/ and remember to put in our CODE: FRIENDCBRSS

With much appreciation for any and all kind-hearted desires and efforts to help us manifest for all our children at school.
