The Kindergarten, Class 1 and 2 Winter Festival was a delightful experience. Despite the wet weather we managed to create an atmosphere of reverence, community and seasonal celebration. Through bringing the children into connection with the earth’s seasons, they develop a deep love and respect for nature. This connection goes into the depth of their being, penetrating far beyond the intellect.
The simple act of sharing food and a story (and a laugh) together brings us together as a community. Doing this during the bitter chill of winter reminds us that no matter how cold our inner life may feel, the joy of humanity can bring warmth to our souls.
