As 2020 draws to an end, we look for ways to reflect on the past year. Resilience, flexibility and courage are all words that come to mind. But perhaps above all, what stands out is the heart felt warmth and kindness shown by many as they have reached out with understanding to meet those in need. Whether a friendly greeting with an elderly neighbour, a zoom family dinner, or the warmth of a teacher connecting with their class – in all these meetings, it is the striving for conscious connection that has bought warmth to the heart.
At Mercurius, we are very thankful to have been able to continue to operate in a flexible COVID-safe environment, to strengthen existing relationships and forge many new ones. It is encouraging to see the growing interest and commitment to quality, sustainable products that nurture and support the health of humanity, animal welfare and the care of the environment. Values we hold dear at Mercurius and share with our many partners both within Australia and around the world.
We thank you for your ongoing support and wish you best wishes in the festive season and the year ahead.
With Warmth and Gratitude from the team at Mercurius
At Mercurius we take pride in the range and quality of products we carry. We work collaboratively with socially and environmentally conscious partners from both around the world and locally, striving to source, develop and supply products that support healthy development for children of all ages.
We select products that are as close to nature as possible, from companies that are aware of sustainability and that retain a consiousness around quality, usability and function.
The quality and agelessness of our products speak for themselves - much of our core range has remained unchanged for over 20 years.
Our product selection is inspired by Steiner, Waldorf, Montessori and Reggio Emilia education - working with and recognising the age appropriate learning that takes place in nature and through imaginative play.
Last year, Waldorf and Steiner schools around the world recognized 100 years of Waldorf/Steiner Education. The global theme that was explored was ‘Learn to Change the World’ and we were witness to the many ways Steiner students around the world experienced their education to equip them with the skills, the strength and the capacity to Change the World.
In Australia, the SEA Conference extended on this global theme to reflect on the wisdom of Steiner’s indications and how they can offer a ‘Renewal for the 21st Century’.
Our current times are calling for us all to discover an inner strength, to face new challenges and find new ways of working together.
At Mercurius Australia we are consciously working to understand our part in the world, finding new ways to holistically support Steiner education, both within our schools and within our homes.
