Guidance - Greetings from the Counselor
I thought we would talk about caring for this week's lessons. These last 10 weeks have been crazy, but they have also been kind of good for us. We learned a great deal about ourselves and hopefully you have learned new and exciting things about the people around you. I have learned that I can get things done that I have put off for a very long time, and had a great time doing them. I have learned that I love meditation even more and know that I should have been doing it way more than I have.
- What have you learned about yourselves?
- What have you taught others about yourself?
I would love to hear your thoughts on these questions, so please feel free to email me your thoughts and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course I also have some fun things to do for this lesson as well. The ﬁrst project comes from the book, “Sitting Still Like a Frog Activity Book” by Eline Snel. We have done a number of lessons from this book and I have enjoyed sharing them with you guys. This lesson is called, What Do You Really Care About? I feel this goes so well with what we all have been going through. We can use it as a reminder of what we were able to accomplish and who we were able to make memories with.
Guidance - The Monkey Mind Meditation Deck
Guidance - Mountain
The second card is Mountain, and it has a little girl sitting in front on a mountain. All kinds of things live on mountains, and all kinds of things happen on mountains. Trees grow, animals live, snow piles up on them, rivers take things down, ﬁres burn the trees, but all the while the mountain is still a mountain. It doesn’t force the trees to live one way or the animals another way. It just stays there, calm and stable. We can be the same way with everything going on around us that we can not control, friends pushing us one way, pulling us another way, we are there, calm and stable.
I hope you enjoy this week's lessons and I will be right back here next week, same bat time, same bat channel (ask your parents, or even grand parents.)
