Parents will receive a follow up email after the workshop to see what their children experienced, as well as some useful resources to use with their children to continue their creative and self discovery journey.
Group Activity #1 - Energy, Chakras, & Guided Meditation (with Rebecca)
Rebecca will teach the kids about the chakra system and how to create energy within the body to better understand themselves.
How kids think, feel and act is affected by the energy flowing through their chakras. This energy expands or shrinks according to the changes they experience in their internal world (how they think and feel) and how they interact with the external world (people they meet, places they go and the things they do, eat, smell and see).
Learning about chakras will introduce kids to the benefits of promoting stillness and quieting their minds, which can really help them deal with the stress of living in a world where constant stimulation is a regular part of life. It’s in these moments of stillness that they will give their intuition a chance to step up and guide them in finding ways to bring more balance into their lives.
Rebecca will show the kids how to create an energy ball as a way to be more aware of the energy in their body. The energy ball is a great tool for kids to use to rid negative emotions from the body.
Group Activity #2 - Energy through Art (with Catherine)
Catherine will be focusing on creating an energy ball and teaching the kids how colour subconsciously or consciously can reveal our emotions.
The children will experience a simple breathing and body relaxation exercise to connect to the I AM of self.
Children’s colours can sometimes feel dimmed down because they feel powerless and unexpressed, not knowing how to articulate feelings into words.
Through art they can express these feelings and be guided to their emotions and learn it is ok to feel anxious, frustrated, or annoyed.
The children will be activated and learn how to use colour and its energy to feel ignited again.
Your child will connect to their creative self, finding confidence, self-esteem, empowerment through the medium of paints.
I believe all children are natural artists and many have disconnected their artistic selves, therefore, I guide them to achieve a greater sense of peace, happiness to relax their body and free their minds.
THE WORKSHOP IS SUITABLE FOR KIDS Aged 7-11 (Grade 2-6).
The learning activities may be of particular benefit for kids who:
Love to express themselves through art and movement
Struggle to cope with stress
Have a tendency to worry or overthink
Have gut problems / food intolerance
Become aggressive and lash out when frustrated
Have trouble sleeping
