Our Families Say...
At Wellspring we are offering our children tools, lifelong tools, that can help them to navigate thru the uncertain future. We are teaching them that they have choices, to go inward and listen to their bodies, to their hearts, to make empowered choices from their individual truth. We are encouraging our children to go inward and choose a different path if something doesn’t feel good rather than just accepting it as ‘normal’. I believe that Wellspring is providing the next generation with an amazing treasure. ~Denise R.
A daily conflict between my four-year-old son and a classmate brought these two boys to the "peace mat", a safe place where both would hold the "peace stick" and listen to each other with the help of a teacher and an 'older' child. The amount of respect that was given to all children involved was amazing. They call this conflict resolution. This is a skill that my children are learning at a young age that will take them into their adult life. I learned about the peace mat in action when my little one brought it into our home one day to resolve a conflict with his older brother. WOW. Mom learned something that day too. ~Caryn R.
