If you wish to reach out for assistance in any of the above areas all you need to do is write us a brief email stating the following –
This does not need to be a long email, just enough for some background. We will then get back to you proposing how we might be able to help.
With the arrival of Covid-19, many more people around us have experienced what it is to be with someone as they go through the dying process. Normally we would have the support of doctors, nurses and other professionals to support us through this, but now things have changed and we may find ourselves having to support loved ones as they pass on.
We have amongst our Sangha some experienced qualified professionals who can help advise you if you find yourself in this position.
With movement restrictions introduced across the world due to the coronavirus, many parents suddenly found themselves having to either home-school their children without much support, or having to live with their entire families 24/7. With all the fear and anxiety already present, this put huge amounts of pressure on families, for both parents and children.
Amongst our Sangha network we have a few teachers that have experience with home-schooling and dealing with children who are struggling in some kind of way.
Recent disruptions to schools and requirements of home-schooling can bring a whole bundle of added challenges to any household. I would like to use my experience working with and teaching children to offer support to anyone in our Sangha. I am a primary school teacher and have spent the past few years focusing on how to make mainstream learning more holistic. Most of the work I do is relational first and foremost. On a personal note, it is my meditation practice that is so key to this work as I find it is from a point of connection that learning can grow and blossom in new ways.
If you have a child who is having difficulty with some aspect of learning at this time, I would be really happy to help. I am experienced in collaborative problem solving with children and adults and I place real importance on play and communication to find ways to work with some of the challenges children (and parents) feel.
If you are a parent or carer who would appreciate a non-judgemental ear and who would like to delve deeper into your understanding of your child at this time, please do get in touch. Whether it might be how to build greater emotional resilience, working on building concentration, difficulties with home-schooling, challenges with homework, supporting struggling readers, being clear about adult expectations or how to make learning a bit more engaging and fun, I would be happy to lend a hand. I have included some of my most used resources below and also my email address for you to get in touch should you wish.
