Creating a space for Seasonal celebrations…Nature Tables 101
Updated: Jan 26, 2022
Creating a space for those found treasured wonders from nature is a moment in time where we can express the seasonal changes and give it expression in our homes. Always thanking the earth for these nature gifts. As you pass by your created altar or seasonal table throughout the day it invokes a connection to the natural world that we are part of.
Children so deeply connect with the rhythms of the seasons and the opportunity to share in various festivals and their meanings, is a great way to embrace your child’s natural desire for connection. You can celebrate any sort of festival.
Not unlike a spiritual altar these spaces can be in a corner of your home a shelf or a centerpiece for a story or a celebration shared with food. The possibilities are endless.
