Throughout the world, in all civilizations, there are celebrations reflecting nature's rhythms, important transitions, and significant moments in the life of the culture. We celebrate these to sustain and renew ourselves. For people today, who can so insulate their lives as to be unaware of the seasons, of reaping and sowing, of dark and light, of birth and death, festivals can help provide a real touchstone with the cycles of the earth and the soul nurturing they provide. In Waldorf schools, the elements of festival—light, food, song and story—permeate the weekly school rhythm; but the cadence of the year receives its form through festivals. Annual festivals of nature and humanity are celebrated in ways that foster wonder, reverence and gratitude and which nourish the future capacity to respond—to be responsible for and among the human community. ~As beautifully shared by the Eugene Waldorf School.
At PWS we have several festivals and events throughout the year including, Michaelmas, Harvest Festival, Santa Lucia, Advent Spiral, Winter Celebration and several more. We invite the community the join us for these moving and beautiful events. To learn more, please check our calendar on the front page of our website.
