SACRED CHILDREN PROGRAM
Supporting and Celebrating the Transition from Childhood to Youth
The sacred children program is a 3 month holistic approach to children's wellness that encourages a deep connection with nature and the self. This program will be held on the 17th of June, 15th of July and 19th of August and is made for children between 6 to 13 years old and include nature walks, breathwork, meditation, grounding yoga poses, connection with nature and the ocean and closing circle. Each week we will focus specifically on one aspect of mindfulness (breathwork, meditation, nutrition) combined with the nature walk. The program begins with a nature walk, where children explore and connect with the natural elements around them. This helps to cultivate a sense of wonder and appreciation for the environment, while also promoting physical activity and exploration. Following the nature walk, children engage in breathwork exercises to help them regulate their breathing patterns and calm their minds. This is followed by a guided meditation practice, which helps children to develop their focus and concentration skills, reduce stress and anxiety and improve their emotional regulation. After the meditation practice, children are encouraged to share their thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment. This will be done through group discussion or journaling exercises. This will help them develop their emotional intelligence and communication skills. It also promotes a sense of community and belonging, as children learn to connect with each other on a deeper level. After this the children are invited to take a dip of their bare feet in the ocean which provides refreshing and invigorating experience. This helps to stimulate the body's natural healing processes and boost the immune system, while also providing a fun and engaging way to connect with nature. To end the session, we have a closing circle where we provide a safe space for children to express themselves on their emotions, experience and bonding with fellow children. Lastly, we walk back to the starting point of the nature walk. Overall, the sacred children program is a nurturing and empowering experience for children that promotes physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. By combining nature walks, breathwork, meditation, communication circles and ocean dips, children can develop a deeper sense of connection with themselves, each other, and the natural world around them.
