Connected Kids
A New, Unique Workshop for Tasmanian Schools

As a teacher for many years I recognise that some of the biggest challenges for educators today are

  • Behaviour management
  • Social and emotional problems, including bullying
  • Overcrowded curriculum
  • High expectations of parents and ‘the system’ ...i.e.stress

 

Since 2011 I have introduced many Tasmanian students and some parents and teachers to an activity that can, I believe, with the appropriate support and encouragement, go a long way to alleviating many stress-related issues in schools. This program is taught around the world by qualified teachers and is known as Connected Kids.

 

Unlike some similar-sounding classes such as yoga, meditation or Kids Matter, which have their own benefits, Connected Kids is an empowering experience which enables children to recognise and access their ability to help themselves and others; to recognise and feel their actual connectedness and to demystify concepts of ‘healing’ and wellbeing.

 


Outline of the Workshop

The two-to-three hour workshop (depending on the age group) begins with a clarification of common terms in energy healthcare: energy, light, information, magnetic and gravitational fields. It also looks at the current role of parents and healthcare practitioners and how they can help when we are off balance either mentally, emotionally of physically and how we can take responsibility for our health and wellbeing.

 

The middle section of the workshop gets practical and this is where its uniqueness comes into focus.

Students are shown how to ‘feel the frequencies’ of the 'biofields' which surround the body, beginning with the hands. In an average class of twenty-five children, I’ve found that 80-90% can recognise these sensations -  which are often surprisingly new to them - immediately. By the end of the workshop it’s usually close to 100%.

"Wow, I can really feel something."

After some feedback with the class it becomes obvious that we all recognise ‘the field’ in similar but unique ways.

 

The next practical element is to see how fields interact as we work together. Here students are shown the relaxing and balancing effect of the bio-fields interacting as they explore with a partner.

 

Finally, there is a discussion and practise of self-healing which may be likened to a simple, practical meditation technique.

 

There will be a follow-up session one week after the workshop of one hour duration to hear feedback from students.

Energy Healing Science

Reconnective Healing, which forms the basis of this workshop, is widely recognized by researchers as the leader in the emerging field of Energy Healthcare. It had been the subject of numerous studies and some of these will be explained in the workshop in an age-appropriate manner.


See the white papers on The Reconnection website which form the subject matter for teaching in upper primary, secondary and college classes.

Age Range

The workshop is adaptable for students from kindergarten to college level. Children under seven are encouraged to have a parent present for the session.

Teacher Training

I offer introductory sessions for interested staff and parents in Tasmanian schools which may run for 30 to 60 minutes.

 

At present, 2017, I am the only trained facilitator of these workshops in Tasmania. However I believe there is the potential for an instructor in every school community. This could be a parent or teacher and I am most willing to discuss the possibilities of training.


Feedback

Parent and Teachers have responded very positively to these sessions with comments such as

 

“This is the kind of thing they should be teaching in schools!” - Parent from Blackmans Bay, Tasmania

 

“This is very empowering for children.” – Principal, a Hobart Primary School


'My kids are happier and Amber is much more relaxed and anxiety is down.'

- April Masterton, Hobart.
