We had lots of fun with a torch in class yesterday drawing shadows of puppies. We explored how our minds are like puppies:
- Bring us things (thoughts) we didn’t ask for
- Don’t always listen when called
But just like a puppy, our minds (attention) can be trained with patience, kindness and firmness. This is mindfulness.
Creating abstract fireflies to symbolise our inner light shining. We did this mindful artwork after reading the beautiful story “Firenze’s Light” by Jessica Collaco
Lots of fun yesterday with the Grade 4 class at Greenfields girls.
Guided visualisation = The Climbing Tree
Mindful artwork = glueing herbs and spices on picture
Beautiful mindful artwork done by an 11 year old Mindful Mini. Unknowingly she got the chakras almost perfectly aligned! So special. This was her creation after we did a Firefly Meditation…
Breathing in…imagine a wave of light rising within
Breathing out…allow the light to emanate from every pore of your body
Lots of fun in class this week making vanilla scented candles! What is your favourite smell for a scented candle?
