In October of 2009 I attended a workshop at Elizabeth Ann Clune Montessori School of Ithaca, called the Dream of the Good. It was promoted as a multi-age curriculum developed in Sweden that teaches peace.
Through experiences in Stillness, Movement, Reflection and Peaceful Touch, children learn skills that allow them access to wells of strength and wisdom deep inside themselves and guide them toward peaceful means of expression.
I will be integrating this methodology and including activities such as Qi Gong, meditation, yoga and gentle touch as naturally flowing parts of the daily program at Alpine Children's House.
