Eclectic Kids - Mindfully Create & Wiggle! Ages, 6-12 (2:30-4:30)

This class will be filled with fun interactive activities. First we will play a game with
movement and music. The game requires our listening skills!
Our next activity, as a group, individual or partners, we will be making mandalas out of
nature objects found outside. In this activity we will try to work into our practice by being
mindful of the textures we come across, and compare those items to our feelings.
Mandala making is created through experience and living in the present moment. This
activity gives children the freedom to create without a visual. After the mandalas are
made each group shares their mandala story. Some mandalas have rivers, structures,
people, fairies and even unicorns!

The Lorax - A theatrical production by special guest ALEX HOWE be seated and ready by 4:00

We have a special guest in youth village TODAY!
Alex Howe is coming to tell us a very beloved story at our youth village!
Lets all take a seat around 3:45 and enjoy some organic popcorn while listening and watching him perform this story!
Story starts at 4:00 sharp!

The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss is a light-hearted but cautionary tale with a critically important message. If we do not collectively take responsibility for the stewardship of the environment, then our own world will soon be like the one that the Lorax left behind. Left to the devices of greed-based business interests, the resources of our world are being consumed at an abominable rate. And soon, they will all be gone. So while the Once-ler did eventually see the error of his greedy ways, it was already close to too late for his world.

One underlying message contained within the Lorax that is a good source of philosophical discussion is the idea of the interconnectedness of the things that live in an ecosystem. The ecosystem within the story completely falls apart when just one thing is taken away. As more and more of the Truffula trees get cut down, the area becomes less and less capable of supporting the multitude of other species all relying on the trees, and each other. So by removing the trees, things go completely out of balance. From a philosophical perspective, interesting questions may raised about what it means for things to be interdependent like they are in an ecosystem. Viewed from one perspective, the different species in an ecosystem are like parts of a delicate, but efficiently functioning whole. But what is this thing called "an ecosystem" that other things are parts of? What is its nature as a sort of entity in itself? If one views the ecosystem as an independent entity, this raises all sorts of ethical question about what our social responsibilities are to our own ecosystem, and to the earth as one big interconnected ecosystem.
