U CAN BE HEROES
Aligning Body, Mind, Heart and...
Helping Middle Schoolers Develop the Content of Their Character
REACHING HEARTS THROUGH ENLIGHTENING MATERIAL AND POWERFUL MESSAGES
In a society flooded with entertainment, "candy," and all sorts of unhealthy distractions, how can we help our children to become whole, aligned, harmonious adults? The answer begins with getting children to recognize and believe in the transformational power of loving behaviors. To this end, U Can Be Heroes, designed using the integrated workings of the body as a model, brings pre-teens a heart-based education on essential behaviors and values for creating more health and harmony in themselves and in the world around them.
THE INSIDE OUT
A Program on Parts to Wholes and Parts to Wholeness
IT'S ABOUT BRINGING THE PARTS TOGETHER...
looking at the design of our body, we gain insight into what it means to have whole, harmonious, or balanced actions. Much as the body has parts, whole, harmonious, balanced actions are also made up of parts. Learning about the different parts of the body, and how they function, and how different parts of whole harmonious actions function, we discover a beautiful insight into how we can live well. Through revealing functional common denominators between body parts and behavior "parts"
a divine guideline for wholeness in our actions surfaces.
By engaging children on parts to wholes, using the body as the anchor, we encourage children to see the value of wholeness in their actions.
