Spiral of Lights

By Ms. Erica

The Spiral of Lights is a ceremony that is lit only by candles and smelling of fragrant evergreens. Students and their teacher walk, one at a time, into the spiral of evergreens to the center. Each student lights their candle and winds back out of the spiral, placing their lit candle somewhere along the pathway to light the way for the next child. It is a reminder of the journey inward each of us must make during the dark winter days ahead.

This year the Spiral of Lights will be held in the barn at our Farm Campus. Parents and children will meet in the yurt to enjoy hot cider as they wait their turn to walk the spiral before being led to the barn by their class teachers. As a special treat, the music for the Spiral of Lights will be provided by Swallowtail alumni.
