The greatest gift of LessonsAlive is its simplicity. Founded on the following observable truths, it delivers profound understandings that serve as the basis for its effectiveness. When you encompass these understandings, it not only lifts you into a higher appreciation of yourself, it also gives you a deeper insight into why children behave the way they do and how you can better guide, teach and support them.
- We live on a planet that is teeming with life and we have the privilege of being the most intelligent, most developed, most versatile and most talented form of life that is here.
- There are six billion people on this earth. We each conform to the same recognisable design with the same equipment to experience life – a head, two arms, two legs, soul, brain, spirit, feelings, instinct and so on. Within this, each life is utterly unique; in looks, in age, in experience, in frequency and in effect. There is only one YOU and only YOU can do what you were uniquely designed and meant to do.
- The range of life on this planet is breathtaking – from the tiniest microbe to the ant, to the elephant, tulips, dinosaurs, Redwood trees, algae, kingfishers, bluebottles, oak trees, dragonfly, buttercups, plankton, lions, midges, giraffes and more….and more….and more…. Whatever you choose to call the incredible intelligence that designed, created and gave life to all this – AND humans – (AND planets, moons, stars) - it is AWESOME in the extreme. The precision, the engineering, the care, the way it all works, constantly, ceaselessly. Breathtaking.
These are just a few of the compelling observations that gave rise to LessonsAlive.
When you see children pushing and shoving, recalcitrant and shy, evasive and sullen or lacking in confidence, it is clear they have no idea who and what they are; for these things do not fit with the calibre and design of all that is naturally human.
LessonsAlive specialises in recognising, promoting and valuing the true merit inherent in each human life and, like nature, works ceaselessly to find ways to support it.
By working to encompass such perceptions and understandings you too, as teachers and parents, can help and perhaps we can begin to turn the tide of what robs young children of their natural brilliance.
