In the lesson, we spent a peaceful five minutes just being still and quiet, as much as little ones allowed. As I observed the quiet, peaceful way in which everyone rested, with eyes closed, some lying down, some with babes in arms, it was wonderful to see how the children became peaceful too - going about their exploration or staying close by, but generally very content.
I introduced the class to a Self-Care Questionnaire by Pennie Brownlee. Here’s the link for you to download and take a look. Feel free to share it with partners and friends.
We spent time discussing a couple of the questions but ran out of time. It is, as I said, a big topic!
