Ph. D. in Astrophysics - Astrophysics/Astronomy Communicator/Educator/Adjunct at the San Diego University volunteering on a number of community projects that promote a mindful STEAM curriculum.  I also homeschool my three children, and I am personally active internationally offering workshops to both children, adults and teachers.
Learners do need to bring with them a rope that is not stretchable and at least 10 feet long (3 meters long). Beads and other decoration to put in the place of the planet and the Sun are optional and not required.
