Join us this Sunday, March 9th!
9:30 a.m. Program: “What is Waldorf Education?”
Prairie Moon Waldorf School in Lawrence offers early childhood education through grade six on seven acres in the Kansas River valley. The only Waldorf School in Kansas, Prairie Moon is connected to the worldwide Waldorf Education movement. Join teachers Melisa Hall-Aquitania and Bret Schacht for an overview of Waldorf education and its perspective on the development of the child, including the importance of physical warmth, rhythm of routine (daily, weekly, seasonal), nutrition and sleep. The program will include demonstrations of some of the classroom activities used at Prairie Moon to help children get to know their bodies and the world. Please explore prairiemoon.org to learn more.
11:00 a.m. Spiritual Celebration: “To Harvest the Wisdom of the Years” Rev. Jill Jarvis
Throughout most of human history, elders occupied honored roles as sages, leaders, guardians of the traditions, and mentors of the young. Our culture’s current disempowering of our elders is a justice and spiritual issue. Rather than inevitable decline, the aging process can be a time of unparalleled growth and engagement. Still learning, filled with potential and connected to the future, elders synthesize wisdom from long experience to formulate legacies for future generations. Join us for this service to hear the wisdom of some of our own elders, as they guide us in forming new myths and models to ennoble the experience of aging.
