2020 Giving you new wings

Exploring Potency and Effect 

When we look into the world and trace the paths of our current and past students, Taruna can certainly seem like a small agent for change.  Yet we also know that just in the way a homeopathic remedy works, tiny amounts of material substance can become potent beyond physical measure when very diluted.  Students on the recent CRSE Seminar gave us feedback about the new power and potential they feel for their life and work as a result of the week's learning journey.  We know that such power and potential ripples out in ways beyond measure as they go back to their worlds, where what is integrated has impact and lasting consequence.  It can be likened to 'the Butterfly Effect'  from mathematics' chaos theory which shows how tiny variances - like the flutter of a butterfly's wings - can, in sensitive and dynamic systems have profound and unexpected effects. Our hope and endeavour is for Taruna to offer opportunities for all who come here to experience new sources of power and potency.  Just like the fluttering of a butterfly's wings the effects are invariably far-reaching and surprising. 
As this year gets underway we encourage and welcome you to be a part of what is on offer here - whether weekly art classes or a programme of study.  Give yourself new wings.

Towards a Common Tenderness
Tell me how I can touch the butterfly
without breaking her wing; without wiping
the soft dust from her eye; without trapping 
her, breaking her wing.
Show me how I can watch her colours fly
without stopping the light; without turning 
the gold to black, splitting the blue; without 
darkening the sky.
Lead me to the place where her dance begins; 
to the moment when light/love fills her soul
and she transcends the sleeping earth, lifts
her life into dream
and I will watch 
without breaking her wing.

Art for All
This week we begin our regular Wednesday morning art classes for the year. The first group starts at 9.00am and is offered for beginners learning foundational artistic techniques, and the second group gets underway at 11.00am for those with some experience who want to develop their skills.  It is a lively morning of creativity, where we explore colour, composition and the wonders of careful observation.  Between classes there is time for groups to meet over coffee in the garden.  If you would like to join please contact Charmaine in the office.

Art of Well-Being
The Art of Well-Being invites you to take three weeks from your coming year to find a new connection to your own well-being.  This programme is gentle yet enquiring, focusing on three themes that renew our well-being:  art; life-story work (biography); and contemporary ideas about what it is to be truly human. Our 2019 group affirmed this programme as a learning journey that nourishes on many levels. One said 'it allows me to speak my truth more brightly and throw myself into experiences with more delight, all contributing to my increased sense of well-being'.  If you are exploring ways to be all you can be in your life, join us for this special journey that starts May 6-11. We would welcome your further enquiry.

Anthroposophic Nursing

In February this group of learners come together for the next step of their five module learning journey in anthroposophic nursing at Taruna. 

Although there is not opportunity to join the current programme that is already underway, if you would like further information about future programme plans please make contact with us.

Certificate in Rudolf Steiner Education
In January we welcomed students to Seminar One of this year's CRSE. Our focus was on the young child and how these early years sow seeds for life. Our days explored the incarnation journey, the young child's developing physiology, and how to best meet their needs so they can experience the earth as being full of goodness.  We explored music, the lower senses, the power of story and the importance of colour. It was a rich week of both gathering treasures to offer young people and to grow in strength and confidence with what we offer as teachers and parents.
If you are interested to join this programme for Seminar Two, which focuses on the middle years of childhood and runs 19 – 24 April.  We welcome your interest.
