There are three elements that provide the basis for Education for Life (EFL): the consciousness of the teacher or parent, the ability to connect with each child fully and clearly, and the direction of growth that is to be encouraged. In this course participants experience the power of these elements and have the chance to cultivate their own skills in these areas.
In this course you will:
1) Use the Life Skill Action Charts to focus attention on specific aspects of growth like Building Will Power, Expanding Sensitivity, and Developing Concentration.
2) Keep a journal of your interactions with children, experimenting with various aspects of the EFL approach.
3) Study the book Out of the Labyrinth to learn the conceptual basis for all aspects of Education for Life.
4) Practice meditation and other centering techniques that help clarify consciousness and allow for more authentic interactions with children.
This combination of experiential and theoretical approaches provides the best possible foundation for sharing EFL principles with children.
