Festivals are held to inscribe into the human soul a feeling of union and community, both with fellow human beings and the world. In Waldorf education we share many festivals with our students and community. In the festival of Michaelmas we seek knowledge and activity that is the essence of the human potential of self-development. We, as human beings, have the possibility of personal transformation. We all have our own dragons, our lower, less noble aspects. At Michaelmas time we seek to face our dragons with courage, gain self-knowledge, and strive towards the transformation of that which enslaves us. The pageant honors stories that exemplify courage.
