Waldorf School Expands

A Day of Consciousness Connections C


reen Meadow Waldorf School in Chestnut Ridge plans to open

a satellite early childhood location in Tarrytown in September 2011, bringing its unique curriculum to Westchester County. Nursery and kindergarten classes will be offered during the 2011-12 school year, along with parent & child classes and workshops for parents. Of- ferings will include the school’s popular simplicity parenting group, based on the best-selling book of the same name by Kim Payne, led by a Green Meadow faculty member who is also a certified simplicity parenting coach.

Green Meadow also will begin parent & child classes and parenting workshops in Ridgewood, New Jer- sey, in September, to meet a grow- ing need in that area for exceptional early childhood programs and par- ent support. Plans are in the works to have nursery and kindergarten classes operating in Ridgewood by September 2012.

The 62-year-old school set on 11 acres in Chestnut Ridge serves children from birth through grade 12, and has approximately 350 students, coming from 13 counties and 87 towns in New York and New Jersey. Waldorf Education is the fastest-growing independent educational movement in the world today, with nearly 1,000 schools in 83 countries.

rystal Connection Center in Wurtsboro is pleased to announce “A Day of New Consciousness Connections” being held Sat- urday, August 20. Join Robert Simmons, co-author of The Book of Stones and author of Stones of the New Consciousnes, and his wife Kathy Warner, for a full and beautiful experiential day. The day begins with a workshop titled “Healing, Awakening and Co-creating with Crystals, Minerals and Gems” being held from 9 a.m. to noon. “We are invited to enter, with the help of the stones, into a new consciousness, a new way of being for which we have been preparing for a very long time,” says Simmons. The day continues with the workshop “Meeting the Divine Feminine in Our- selves and the World” with Kathy Warner being held from 2 to 5 p.m. Warner shares, “Within sacred space we will work with images, expanded perception practices and small group sharing, to explore what the Divine Feminine wants to tell us now.” After each of the above workshops there will be book signings and a trunk show where attendees can share and feel the new consciousness stones including azeztu- lite, moldavite, phenacite, herderite and many more.

The event will wrap up from 7 to 9 p.m. with the New Consciousness Connec- tions Evening.
