Hope for 2021
Winter solstice, planets & stars
“The turn of the year's tide, a pivot-point & a day of hope -- when the dark stops rising & the sun begins its slow climb back.
We sure need all the light we can get right now...’” quote by Robert Mcfarlane
At The Curiosity Approach®️ our modern day pedagogy is inspired by Waldorf, Nature, Mother Earth & our connection to the changing seasons & time.
Today is a day for Awe & wonder
Today not only marks the longest night of the year & the shortest day. It’s the ‘turning of the sun’ as the days slowly start to get longer.
How amazing is this ?
That after such a year of struggle and anxiety, nature sends us messages of HOPE & wonder 🌟 To keep the faith - time may seem to pass so slowly, but incredible things are still happening
How amazing that the *Winter Solstice has arrived *
At The Curiosity Approach we give reverence to nature, to see the amazing messages given to us from our incredible planet & the ever renewing cycle of life.
This year MoRE than ever LIGHT is ever more visible & prevalent with not only Winter solstice being celebrated today but the incredible phenomenon when the planets Saturn and Jupiter are aligning.
These 2 planets are the largest in the solar system and some of the brightest in the night sky.
This incredible celestial event has not seen for 800 years & will not been seen AGAIN for another 400 years !
So if you are in need of some messages from nature, to give hope & renew your faith that these dark days will pass.
Then look to the night sky
Be CURIOUS ? See if we you can spot as Jupiter and Saturn align.
Many are calling it a super Bright Christmas STAR
Surely we all need a glimpse of Wonder ?
Looking to the sky as ‘perhaps’ the Three wise men & the shepherds did as they headed to Bethlehem ?
WHATEVER your faith, culture, festival or belief LIGHT is important to us all! Whether Diwali, Halloween, Bonfire, Hanukkah & Christmas. This Autumn term has seen the evidence of light through them all 💫🌟
Let us seek hope & faith in the turning of time & this incredible planet upon which we all reside.
The Curiosity Approach is much more than aesthetics, carboot treasures & recycled materials. It’s a modern day approach moving beyond academics & traditional approach to Early years. We step away from topics & themes & embrace nature & all the gifts it has to offer !
