Poet and author Shane Koyczan narrates this poignant short video from the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education on the importance of educating children’s hearts as well as their minds. This is important to remember, especially in this time of great upheaval, because while children need knowledge to prepare them for life, they also need those who love and care for them to educate their hearts.
It is also important to remember that young children learn 80% through modeling and 90% of that is non-verbal. So if we are going to adequately prepare our youth today, we need to find ways to be in our conscious mind so we can model and teach some of our greatest human qualities—love, compassion, acceptance, tolerance and respect by example.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE because they are a wonderful way to help you reconnect deeply with your authentic nature and in the process become a fabulous role model and teacher for the children in your life.
