Wheel of Time: Seasonal Festivals, Community Life & Personal Growth (Zoom)
March 7 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
For millennia, humans from cultures around the world lived their lives deeply enmeshed in the rhythms of the seasons. The timescapes of our ancestors were profoundly marked by celestial and terrestrial cycles and every culture created a rich array of festivals and cultural practices to mark and celebrate these changes. Today, empire, industrial agribusiness, and modern technology have largely broken our connection to these natural patterns and many of the seasonal observances have faded away as time has become increasingly flattened and featureless.
Join us for a conversation between Thoreau College director Jacob Hundt and Sinsinawa Mound’s Eric Anglada for a wide-ranging conversation that will cover seasonal observances from different faith perspectives, possibilities for creating learning opportunities around the wheel of the year, and different practices for creating community and alternative education, and more!
Tuesday, March 7, 7-8 p.m. The zoom link will be sent on the morning of the program.
$10/person. Registration ends on Monday, March 6.
Jacob Hundt helped found Thoreau College and the Driftless Folk School, both in Viroqua, WI. He grew up on a dairy farm in the Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin and was one of the founding students of the Youth Initiative High School in Viroqua, where he subsequently worked as a trained Waldorf teacher and guidance counselor. Along the way, he studied and gathered inspiration for transformation in higher education at Deep Springs College, the American University in Bulgaria, and the University of Chicago.
