About the Program
Students will study the language of nature and how it communicates through symbols and metaphors. Simple and fun techniques are taught to the students in learning how to be still, listen and love Nature. These techniques can also be used for student self-regulation. A group art project is created (Earth mandala) to express our gratitude and appreciation to Mother Earth.
