Spacial Dynamics Workshop with Jaimen McMillan

Spacial Dynamics®

Movement in Meditation    Meditation in Movement
with Jaimen McMillan

Rudolf Steiner, the initiator of Anthroposophy, presented six steps as a foundation for a path of self-exploration and development.  Although these meditative suggestions are widely known, many have difficulty in practising them.  Besides the challenge of finding quiet amidst the distractions of everyday life, it may also be that these practices are being done incompletely.  Applying exercises from the discipline of Spacial Dynamics®, we will learn to create and perceive the often overlooked subtle movement indications and progression of these six steps.  Whether Steiner’s subsidiary exercises are new to you or a life-time practice, this seminar promises to bring your meditative life into movement.

Session begins Friday evening 7:00-9:00 pm, and continues Saturday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
Session fee is $150.

Diwali Festival

Diwali Community Event: Celebrate the Renewal of Life
Saturday, November 16, 2013
5:30-9:00 pm in the Gymnasium
$10 per adult and $7 for children 12 and under

Join us on Saturday, November 16 from 5:30 to 9:00 pm in the Gymnasium for a very special November Community Dinner and cultural event where we will celebrate the Festival of Diwali, perhaps the most well-known of the Indian festivals. It is celebrated throughout India, as well as in Indian communities throughout the world. Diwali is also known as the "festival of lights," for the common practice is to light small oil lamps (called diyas) and place them around the home, in courtyards, verandahs, and gardens, as well as on roof-tops and outer walls. The celebration of the festival is invariably accompanied by the exchange of sweets and the explosion of fireworks. It heralds the approach of winter and the beginning of the sowing season. 

Through the collaborative efforts of our Food For Thought Program, our Diversity Committee, and a devoted group of our families who are native to India, we bring you an amazing evening of food, fun, and nourishing celebration. Come enjoy delicious and exotic culinary delights lovingly prepared using traditional home recipes. The rich cultural program will include a welcome ceremony, cultural activities such as Rangoli designs (floor decorations), Mehandi (henna) painting, decorating and lighting of traditional clay lamps, chanting Shanti Mantras (prayers for peace), and finally, a wonderful array of Classical Music and Dance Performances by students, parents, and friends. We will finish the evening with a fantastic firework display.

Our Diwali festival is open to both the KWS community as well as to the general public. Help us spread the word to your family, friends and neighbors. We would love to celebrate this special event with a lively and abundant crowd.  

Volunteers needed:
We will need support with food preparation, set up, serving, and cleanup and would love you to join our enthusiastic team. Please contact Lael for more information about how you can get involved by calling 610-933-3635 ext. 108 or email . All volunteers will receive free entrance in exchange for their enthusiastic support.

Note: Our Diwali Celebration will replace the All-School Community Dinner that was scheduled for Thursday, November 21.
