Children are bearing the effects of stress more than ever before in any time of history. Anxiety, depression, panic attacks and fear have crept into the minds of our children. The time is now to address this. The world has evolved on many levels but most educations systems have remained the same for centuries.
Our Mission: To upgrade school education in underprivileged communities. Creating pathways of change by obtaining sponsorship for school educators to be trained in Pathways Academy of Life Yoga Nidra Mind Training Course. Our training goes beyond yoga asana. It delves into the mind and its workings, providing tools with lasting change of how our children see and respond to life.
Our Vision: To develop happy, healthy, and balanced minds and emotions in children, helping them to thrive in a rapidly changing world. Thus, developing an empowered new future generation, creating their own self-employment regardless of unemployment statistics in the country.
In the practice we come to experience that we are not only a physical body but a multidimensional being of physical body, energy body – emotions, subtle body – mind, intellect, memory and ego, causal body, and soul. Our physical body is visible, the rest of our make-up is invisible. Just because we cannot see it does not mean that it does not exist. We know this because we cannot see or touch our thoughts and feelings but we know we certainly have them.
We also come to experience that our invisible bodies (emotions, mind, and soul)requirements are different to that of the visible body because it is energy and not physical. Therefore, physical food, exercise and nurturing is completely different to what the invisible bodies requirements are. Their food is vibration and vital energy. In the practice of Yoga Nidra with specific visualization and other techniques we feed, exercise, and nurture the invisible bodies and bring them to working in harmony with our physical body which creates lasting inner peace, regardless of what is going on in the world around us.
Our methodology comprises of some asana, specific breath extension techniques to calm the mind and emotions, singing songs with specific words and body language which creates a feeling or vibration which feeds, exercises, and nourishes the mind and emotions. Then ending with the practice of yoga nidra visualization mind training. Here symbolic pictures, which is one of the languages of the subconscious mind, and specific words are used with visualisation through the imagination to create specific feelings. These feelings create a vibration which is transferred via the autonomic nervous system to the energy body feeding and nourishing our mind and emotions. This reconstructs the persona on how we see, respond, and react to life. It is the anecdote of, and goes to the root of psychosomatic disorders, eradicating them effectively. The songs and visualisations have been written by Jennifer Fitzsimmons and have been practiced and taught for over 20 years with great success.
We envision a world where every child understands themselves and how to take care of themselves mentally, emotionally, and physically. It is time to address stress, anxiety, and depression. Understanding the mind is key to creating a brighter future. We are working at making our training more accessible to educators overcoming challenges for impactful results.
We have worked out an amazing course package for children and school teachers. We have an extremely focused syllabus.Teachers will be fully equipped to host children’s retreats and do workshops with the parents for understanding behaviour and learning techniques to use at home with children to develop happy, healthy, creative minds.
