We are so blessed to have family and community; people that belong together and who learn together, to love and be loved. This workshop will offer simple ideas for creating family or classroom customs and celebrations, in order to generate beautiful memories, rich relationships and special days or fun moments in your life and the lives of those you love.
Celebrations and traditions help us to foster meaning, joy, relationship and belonging. They deepen our connection with ourselves, with one another and with nature or Spirit. This workshop is ideal for parents or grandparents, and teachers of children of all ages. Together we will look at the months of the year and discuss ideas for creating meaningful customs through the year; looking at some traditional festivals as well as discussing other events and opportunities for creating special moments, such as caring for each other when sick, family holidays, birthdays and going back-to-school.
Bring a journal and create your own list of ideas and plans for your own annual (or weekly) family or classroom traditions.
