About the Event
Please reserve a ticket for each child you expect to walk the Winter Spiral, for one of three time frames (starting at 5:30, 6:00, or 6:30). This is the 5:30 group.
We encourage you to be on time so that everyone has space to enjoy the spiral. When you arrive, a Spiral Guide will meet you near parking and lead your group to the spiral all together.
Be sure to bundle up for comfort on this winter evening. Please do not wear flowy clothes, for fire safety.
No photos during the spiral walk, please.
We will continue as planned unless there is a big storm.
Participation is free.
About the Winter Spiral:
This beloved Waldorf festival begins with soft music and the lighting of a single candle in the center of a spiral of evergreen boughs, a symbol of life in the dead of winter. Then, one by one, each child walks the spiral with a Spiral Guide and a candle, lighting it in the center and then placing it in an apple along the path. The light brightens the path for those who come after. Each child walks at his or her own pace, in his or her own way.
This is a celebration of quiet confidence, of carrying light in darkness and sharing it with others. To witness the unique way each child moves through the spiral is a gift to all, the hush and reflection a chance to breathe in the rush of December.
People from many paths and beliefs hold festivals that celebrate the return of the sun at this time of year with the longest nights. The depth of the nights and knowledge of the sure return of longer, warmer days resonates with our human experience on a deep level.
We hope you can join us for this first Shade Canyon Winter Spiral.
Child Spiral Walker
Please reserve a ticket for each child who you expect to walk the spiral ONLY (no adult or baby tickets necessary). This helps us to make sure each child has time and space to walk the spiral.
