The Tale of Michaelmas

The Tale of Michaelmas ~ A visual story created by Storyworks

Shining Mountain Waldorf School, in the tradition of Waldorf schools world wide, has a long standing, rich festival life. One of the most beloved festivals is Michaelmas, the celebration of the Festival of St. Michael. As the days become shorter and the autumn months unfold, we call on our Michaelic courage to meet the darker days and places in ourselves symbolized by the dragon.

Our school celebrated Michaelmas last week with our annual pageant of St. Michael and the Knights of Light taming the dragon, all set against a backdrop of the stunning beauty of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.


We invite you to watch our tale of courage here: 

Enjoy! And may you find courage within yourself for this Michaelmas season!
