Touched Into Being
The Mother Archetype Rod Puppet
Regional ECE Professional Development Training October 11-14
Rudolf Steiner Lower School – 15 East 79th St. NY, NY
Puppetry can bring magic and delight to our children, as well as the peaceful reassurance that all is right within themselves in relation to the world. – In this workshop we will create wonderful Mother Rod Puppets and baby, the mother archetype and keeper of the healthy sense of touch and heart. We will explore the young child ‘Touched into Being’ through the ensouled gesture this rod puppet can create for children. The rod puppet is the therapeutic tool of storytelling. This puppet comes to life more than any other with its possibilities for subtle gesture and intimacy. It is the one puppet children want to hug and talk to. We will work on enlivening this puppet with the intention to surround the child with a healthy sense of touch and well being. If you want one very special puppet for telling stories that are meaningful for our children, this is the one!
Everyone is welcome, beginners and experienced enthusiasts.
