Reviews

(5 out of 5)

I found the video clips especially helpful to see how children reacted to the exercises as well as to observe how the facilitators presented the exercises and generally behaved with the children. I enjoyed that the online classes were a mix of lecture, videos, student sharing and led exercises -- the variety kept things interesting. The material presented was concise and to the point and presented in a well-thought-out manner.

I have never undertaken online training before and was completely unsure what to expect. Needless to say, I was most pleasantly surprised. The quality of the training and the sensitive way in which it was delivered was truly excellent.

There was a lot of information provided during the course and Sarah's book is excellent. I really enjoyed listening to the webinars and having the opportunity to talk and ask questions. The videos were very helpful. It was very helpful to see how a teacher interacts with the children and see the children participate in the class.

The meditations we learned have been of great benefit to me personally.  The homework activities were purposeful and will help me in preparing proposals for schools.  I loved the videos; watching Sarah and the other teachers was so helpful.  I also liked listening to my classmates give their thoughts & ask questions.  I am pleased that Sarah answered all my emails and offers meditation teaching “technical support” for life to her students. -Dianne from Australia

I truly enjoyed the classes and am so glad that I have the book to read over and over. Our preschool pilot program Little Ripples will implement many of the techniques I learned. We know the meditations will help children participating in our program at Darfuri refugee camps in Africa. -Rachel from California

In addition, contribute questions and comments as they arise via your computer and Sarah will fully explain any aspects of the course that your are wanting to learn more about.

All webinars are recorded. Webinars can be viewed live or watched later.
