Description - Celebrating the Great Mother by Cait Johnson
Adults have a wide array of books to help explore earth-based spirituality. But what if they want to include their children? Here is a handbook to help parents, carers, teachers and counsellors create meaningful spiritual experiences that will inspire children of all ages. The ideas, suggestions and activities collected here show how to bring children into rituals that celebrate seasonal cycles and help reclaim the spiritual roots of today's modern holidays. With surprisingly little effort, earth-centred activities and rituals can be incorporated into simple daily routines. Part 1, "Handbook for Earth-Connected Parenting," gives techniques for developing a child's inner wisdom and sense of the sacred: dream journals, visualisation, Tarot play, talismans and interactions with the natural world. Part 2 is a guide to the specific seasonal festivals and offers a comprehensive collection of practical and enjoyable ways to celebrate the sacred days of our ancestors. Make a bean rune divination system, gather smudge sticks, grow grass pots, assemble a "dream pillow," create altars - the authors offer easy-to-follow suggestions.
The book, also, includes suggested reading and resource sections for locating additional information and materials for creative projects.
