In all traditions and religions there are similar teachings about divinity. I will be drawing from the esoteric parts of these traditions. In this class children will be introduced to these universal teachings. The main premise will be that an essence of divinity resides in each of us. We often sense this as feeling connected, or an awareness of loving, joy, peacefulness, or a quiet stillness. This class will assist children to build their understanding of this aspect of themselves and give them practices to strengthen this connected feeling. How do they choose this part of themselves when life challenges them? How do they learn to live from and listen to this part of themselves? If this divinity is in each of them what does this mean in terms of how they treat each other and themselves? When they learn to do this they each participate in creating a more peaceful world. These are powerful insights that children take very deeply to heart and realize that they have choices and can be helpful in assisting themselves and the world into a better place by holding a loving focus. This class will be experiential.
