Sphagnis and Enveloping the Child in a Protective Cocoon
September 3 @ 9:15 am – 11:30 am
Today our children are exposed to a myriad of sensory input and stimulation. Unlike adults, they are still developing and learning to filter the external influences they come into contact with. The world is still new and exciting, with every situation needing to be digested, processed and drawn on at a future date.
This can be quite overwhelming at times – for some children more than others. How can we protect or limit the effect on our children when we still need to be part of this fast paced world?
Rudolf Steiner spoke of a time when we would need extra protection from external stimulation and outside influences. He suggested that this protection could be provided by Sphagnum or Peat Moss.
Learn about ‘Sphagnis’, a special Peat Moss and Plant Oil emulsion that when used externally, will cover the body in a protective cocoon. The Sphagni will help provide a second skin and act as a filter between outer stimulation and inner experiences.
