Seminar 7:
Children's Spirituality

You are welcome to be part of a seminar led by three people who have chosen to dedicate their lives to childhood development. The essential formative period of a person's life happens before the age of ten. In infancy and childhood we learn about ourselves, others and the world in ways that affect our whole life. The spirituality of the child is a major interest and concern of parents, teachers, and all those who care for and nurture young children. The life of the spirit is vital in the growth of the child. The subjects will be stimulating, wide-ranging and practical as well as inspirational. The speakers will also offer new ideas on children's meditation.
