Understanding the Spiritual Child
Understanding the Spiritual Child: A Special Evening Visit
With author, educator, and children’s yoga expert, Ana Camacho-Hansen
Friday, April 22 from 5:30 to 7:30
Childhood is a special and spiritual time of beauty, play, and natural discovery. In this evening visit Ana will share her special educator and yogic perspective on the dynamics of a healthy spiritual childhood, and how you can foster this for the magnificent children in your lives.
Participants will explore how basic principles of Yoga and Ayurveda apply to children, such as: prakrutti/innate constitution, vrikrutti/imbalances in constitution, dharma/natural law, ahamkara/self -awareness. The nine-year change and yogic stages of mental development will also be discussed. There will be time for conversation, experientials, and play- reconnecting with your own child nature. Parents, grandparents, educators, and all others are welcome.
