Note: the breathing techniques in this class are based on Lauren Stockly’s Mindful Monsters Therapeutic Workbook, whose permission has been granted to use in my class. Permission has also been granted by ‘YourThearpySource’ to use the online video spinner game in my classroom. Welcome to fun adventures with emotions! In this ongoing class, we’re going to learn about different emotions we experience (worry, anger, sadness, fear, and fear of failure) where we feel them in our body, and how...
By the end of this course, we’re going to familiarize ourselves with emotions and we’re going to learn how to perform deep breathing techniques that can help us manage emotions like anger, sadness, worry, fear, and fear of failure.
I've studied and practiced meditation in three different traditions (Vipassana, Kadampa Buddhism, and Shambhala) for more than 13 years and participated in many meditation retreats: 10- day silent retreats, 7-day retreats, weekend-long retreats where we sat and tended to our object of meditation (breath, body sensations, love, the blue sky, etc), observed it in silence. Based on the positive changes meditation has brought about in my life and my son's life, I have become an avid believer in its power to create healthy, balanced minds. Moreover, I hold a Master’s in Education with an emphasis in TESOL and a Bachelor’s in Teaching English and Romanian Language and Literature. I have vast experience working with children of all ages. I taught English in kindergarten for two years; I also taught elementary, middle, and high school for another two years. In addition, I worked as a nanny in Germany and taught English to international babysitters. I worked as a volunteer with foster children. I have been teaching meditation to my son for two years and have been coaching him on school projects.
Learners will need to print out a worksheet before each class. I will upload the worksheet to Classroom one week ahead of time. We will also need paper, a pencil, and crayons.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
