A NHE Teacher training was conducted in Florianópolis, Brazil, May 22 and 23, by Didi Ananda Sushiila and local members of Ananda Marga and attended by 15 people from the community interested in learning more about NHE.
The program began with an introduction to Neohumanist Education based on the 6 principles of NHE and their application in the classroom. There were sessions on creative movements, yoga asanas for kids, circle dance and spiritual education. After the yoga for kids session, groups, were asked to create their own yoga asanas presentation with dance, stories or creative movement. Everyone really enjoyed being like children, moving with their imaginations, creativities and dancing. For the spiritual education session, the students learned how to introduce and teach med itation to the children including the use of visualizations, reading of children’s poetry, use of mudras, soft music and games.The program also included a presentation on story telling, a drama presentation by a theatre group and a session on sharing and exchanging experiences working with children. In the end everyone made one sun ray out of origami and wrote one word on it about how they felt. All rays were joined together to form a colourful sun of joy, peace, happiness, love, etc.
