Michaelmas Festival – Grades early release

September 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm | Posted under Event Category:
  • Michaelmas Festival & Potluck

    Friday | September 29 | 5:30 – 7pm

    (Grades Early Release 1:00pm. Aftercare will be offered from 1:00 to 3:30pm.)

    Michaelmas, a festival of awakening the “will” and fostering “courage”, is celebrated in Waldorf schools across the globe. Michael, translates to a question, “Who is like God?” and calls on our higher forces to face our inner “dragons”. This time of year, when the summer’s sun wanes and the cold and crisp air begins to arrive, we tend to move toward the comfort of home, and so does our reflective consciousness move inward to the warmth of self. These dragons are not external monsters, but rather live within all humankind; yet, we can overcome any struggle with our awakened righteous consciousness-our spear! Join us to celebrate and rejoice in Michael’s  spirit.

     

    Burning bright my shield and spear

    strong and true my bow

    against the dragons fearful might

    to battle forth I go

    with mighty arm and noble heart

    firm steps I fearless take

    to conquer him who binds us all

    for mankind’s sake I rise up tall.
