NEW VENUE: Helle Heckmann Lecture: The Importance of Sleep

Wednesday, October 18, 5:30pm, NOW AT SunRidge School, Sebastopol

** PLEASE NOTE: this event will now take place in the Library at SunRidge School, Sebastopol **
Our thanks to SunRidge for generously co-sponsoring and hosting the event as SWSF is closed this week due to the fires!

On Wednesday, October 18, Summerfield Waldorf School & Farm, in partnership with SunRidge School in Sebastopol, will present a lecture by Helle Heckmann, a global early childhood consultant. She will be speaking about the importance of sleep in childhood. Rudolf Steiner surprisingly said that one of the main tasks of education is to teach children to “carry their waking experiences into sleep”. Children do not process and digest experience during sleep as adults do. A sensitive and insightful education can support children’s growing ability to gain the full benefits of sleep. Not only does sleep support our physical bodies, but it can replenish the soul and spirit. But how do we support healthy sleep? How do we help our children go to sleep?

Helle Heckmann will share her wisdom and practical advice with parents. This lecture is primarily for parents of young children, but may be relevant for the lower grades, up to approximately age nine.

Presentation open to all: suggested donation $5 but no-one turned away for lack of funds.
