Thinking Vision and Strategy

Share This Post

On Sunday 25th August trustees, volunteers and teachers came together for a strategic meeting. Our facilitator, Ananda Cresswell invited us into a Thinking Environment by reading a quote by WB Yeats – “We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet.”

The input and comments that were shared at this meeting once more brought our mission statement to the fore – ‘To provide education that focuses on the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual development of children and youth based on the principles of Integral Yoga.’ This is what makes the Children of Light Educare unique – it is a centre of healing that is being provided for children who have suffered complex trauma. A heart-warming example is to observe one of our young girls, who frequently threw tantrums-thrashing out on the floor, now able to self-regulate and she is always keen to help new arrivals settle into the school routine.
