Waldorf Family Southern Hemisphere Wheel of the Year

$84.50

Our beautiful wooden Wheel of the Year displays all the months and the beauty of the seasons as the year passes. The illustration includes many traditional festivals, animals, wild plants and flowers.

Why do we, across all religions – from ancient to modern – celebrate the turning of the wheel, the changing of the seasons? Apart from being traditions, they are a wonderful way to renew and refresh ourselves. It’s a great way to ‘touch base’ with Mother Earth. I consider the Earth, our home, as more than just a lump of rock and all her peoples can be united by the same truths. Divided languages, culture, religion but united and bound together by our common birth place. We are all human. We can all see harsh winters and glorious springs, play-filled summers and reflective autumns. The Wheel of the Year is visual journey through the seasons.

The Southern Hemisphere wheel of the year now comes with a hole in the centre, and an oak cap to cover it in as seen in photo #2.

262mm Diameter and 4mm thick. 

In today’s world we can choose to ignore these basic human truths: living outside of nature, inside technology. However our lives are richer and our children’s lives filled more deeply when we connect to these intuitive cycles:
“We need to find festivals at once religious and united with the life of nature which can also unite us simply as human beings” (John Davy – Lifeways).
When we begin to connect with our celebrations as more than merely traditions we naturally turn to festivals that came before and feel that connection to the past. It is then we can see how religious festivals were woven into the rhythms of the year, and how the rhythm of the planets and cosmos still beat now guiding us like heartbeat and leading us through each year. We hope that this wheel of the year will help you to connect whilst also being a beautiful addition to your home.

We also invite you to take your little explorers on a very special Rainbow Nature Treasure Hunt (FREE DOWNLOAD) outdoors, to explore and discover creatures and plants, great and small. 

Stephanie Green’s company - Waldorf Family - is built on wonder. Ever since Stephanie was a child, she has appreciated being surrounded by nature, eating seasonal foods and watching the change of the seasons. She discovered her love for Waldorf handwork projects after the birth of her two wonderful children. It all started by collecting natural treasures and using them for craft projects. Nature is also Stephanie’s main source of inspiration for her creations. The passing of the seasons, colours, forms and shapes, the phases of the moon - all of nature’s characteristics are taken into consideration when Stephanie creates a new product. Her main goal is to create educational, hands-on and meaningful resources with a purpose which are treasured and loved by families over a long time and that help children as well as adults see the beauty and wonder in all things.

As the environment is close to Stephanie’s heart, she makes sure that the Waldorf Family only creates products that are made in a sustainable way from natural materials which can be returned to the earth or recycled.
