Abundantly Blissful Children (and Adults ;) ) .. in two, the mystics

Jana and Heather discuss an educational mindfulness technique Jana developed as described below. While these methods were developed with children in mind, it is imperative and crucial that we, the adults, understand and incorporate these methods within ourselves as well. One key component to these methods is a well-grounded, calm adult.

“Children do learn what they live. Then they grow up to live what they have learned.” – Dorothy Nolte

“This mindfulness program is dedicated to teaching children to use self-regulation techniques to navigate through the many different emotions and feelings one can experience.

“Our goal is to empower children by using mindfulness strategies to help them stay calm during times of stress or when they feel a loss of control. In using these strategies, children will begin to create a tool kit response system that is individualized for their specific needs. Children will gain an understanding of how to be calm, focused, and how to restart their thinking into a positive frame of mind.

“The techniques presented in the ABC toolkit will build social and emotional intelligence through a series of explicit lessons on how to use feelings as an informational navigation tool. Children will learn how their body naturally responds to stress and how calm down strategies can help them regain control. Through empathy, compassion, forgiveness, and awareness of their own unique skills, children will be encouraged to make decisions that contribute to a positive environment. Together we can help children be thoughtful, mindful, and in control of their reactions.”

Heathen Star gazing is a mindset. How often does something look different than it really is? No need to worry. We'll just take another look. Through Art, Science, and History, we discover ourselves in the Universe and the Universe in ourselves. Let's not let what we've been taught get in the way of our learning. Go on and Shine!
