Balance,  Education for Life,  Tools of Maturity

Balance for Better

In Education for Life we frequently talk about balance. Our focus in the classroom is to support the development of the body, feeling, will and intellect in our students and ourselves. We believe that a balanced person is able to successfully meet life’s challenge when he or she is able to use their innate tools of maturity.

This year’s campaign theme for International Women’s Day (March 8th) was Balance for Better. Isn’t that the truth when talking about anything? Balance in equality and opportunity, balance in our ecosystem, balance in our personal lives, balance in our family lives, we could go on and on with examples.

There’s also the balance of the outer and inner life. Cultivating intuition, discernment, creativity and the ability to be calmly centered is another focus in our LWS classrooms. Knowing how to access inner tools is essential when navigating one’s life path, how helpful to have these resources!

Balance for Better, notice it in your own lives, in your kids, in the people around you. Find ways to invite it into the moments and into the months and years. Experience is the greatest teacher.
