The Mid-Winter Festival . . . a reflection.



To celebrate a festival really means to unite oneself in spirit with the cosmic spirit.​ ​​~Rudolf Steiner

Community Aroha ♥

Every Friday morning I come in for an hour to clean the Rudolf Steiner Centre. Every time I enter the Library I notice a change in there.  A lot of ‘stuff’ which used to be on desks and shelves has been moved away and today a beautifully framed quote which had probably been tucked away for years was put on display.  And a notice board for people to ‘Share a Thought’. Last week some shelves were put up in the passageway to display the discarded books which previously had been in boxes, making it easier to see what was there.  It is lovely to see the changes and also the rest of the Centre which is being cared for so well with the paintings and flowers.  It makes it a nice place to work in and visit.

INVITATION  to Introductory talks on Anthroposophy

 We warmly invite Kindergarten and School parents to a series of short talks introducing Anthroposophy and some of the ideas underlying Rudolf Steiner Education.

We offer these talks at a time that we hope will be suitable for parents prior to picking up children at the end of their school day.  The talks will be held in the Rudolf Steiner Centre Library where attendees can also peruse the many books available for reading and borrowing.  The talks are free, but there is a Koha box for contributions that help cover the costs of keeping the Centre
