Living Arts through the Seasons, Spring 2019

Deepening the Development of Your Family Culture

In March, our theme was Clarity. We featured a Dad’s parenting circle, and a bonus Spring Equinox mini retreat.
In April, we celebrated Creativity, and offered suggestions for an Earth Day parenting circle.
In May, Renewal was our focus, with a special emphasis on biodynamic agricultural and home health care. Our parenting circle feature was a discussion about media.

This course will support HOW you want to parent and offer activities, traditions and simple daily things that help you live your values with your family.

By connecting to the rhythms in nature that exist all around you, and creating time to connect with your own intentions, you can embody the qualities you wish to cultivate in your parenting. Our warm and respectful community of parents and teachers are here to inspire, listen and share.

Weaving years of experience as a Waldorf and LifeWays educator, leading women’s circles, the gems of everyday mothering and the magic of mother nature’s gifts, this course originally developed by Kerry Ingram of Mothering Arts is a tapestry of thoughtful and practical resources. Our own LifeWays magic of the Living Arts is woven in, as well as a special bonus: EACH MONTH includes a tutorial for creating a Parenting Circle in your own community with others who share your parenting values! What a great way to experience what is good in the world. Inspire each other with ideas that work, and support each other as you explore challenges!
