Finding Meaning in the Patterns in our Lives

Is there meaning in our adult struggles, and when can we expect them to be over?

How do human beings develop?

How do we foster health and strength in ourselves & our children?

Come and find out the meaning of life according to Rudolf Steiner in this interactive workshop. We will have conversations about the stages of human development and focus on The Golden Years.

We will share life stories, draw, and work on our life chart.

All interested adults are welcome.

Free and Open to the Public

 

Vilda village camp at marin waldorf

Ages 6-11

Join our nature based village for hands on skills and outdoor fun. We follow our curiosities to learn down to earth skills from adults who are skilled in their field. We track animals in the brush, water tomatoes in the garden, build a birdhouse in the carpentry room and cool off sitting in the shade of the oak trees working on crafts. We notice what our friends are doing as we pass by and perhaps try a new skill the next day. Projects and adventure are balanced with rest, story and timeless play.

The lovely oak shaded campus of Marin Waldorf School and adjacent open spaces serve as our learning playground for this long awaited camp. The camp is Waldorf compatible but open to everyone.

In addition to our core curriculum this camp may include:

  • Carpentry Safety & Projects

  • Organic Gardening

  • Healthy Cooking Projects

  • Local Flora & Fauna

  • Natural Dyes

  • Ecological Arts & Crafts

  • Animal Tracking

  • Fire by Friction

  • Scout Games & Practices

  • Mapping

  • Wild Edibles

  • and more...

Celebrations with a Natural Rhythm

Just as there is a rhythm to each day with different tasks appropriate to different times of the day, there is a rhythm to the year. Observing the changing seasons helps the children to work appropriately and fosters a sense of harmony with the rhythmic life of nature throughout the year. Marin Waldorf School celebrates the changing seasons with major all-school festivals. In addition we hold annual festivals and events for the larger community.

parent association

MWS parents are raising happy and healthy children together.

 

The purpose of the Parent Association is to promote community life and support the school's fundraising efforts and festivals. Our school was founded by a group of dedicated parents and the on-going enthusiasm, support and commitment of parents helps maintain Marin Waldorf as a healthy, harmonious school community. All parents are automatically members of the Parent Association, which meets on the first Monday of each month during the school year. Class representatives volunteer to represent their classes at Association meetings and bring Parent Association news and projects back to the other parents in the various classes.

Parent Association activities are vitally important to our school, as is every family's participation in them. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend Association meetings. Our Parent Association functions under the guidance of the school administrators.
