NON-DOING

Students will collectively participate in “non-doing” each day. This practice will encourage students to spend a few minutes each day in “non-doing,” taking a break from the all external activity and stimuli. Students will be able to experience this time without action, without expectation, and without judgement.

“Non-doing” helps children discover their inner capacity for:

  • CALMNESS
  • CREATIVITY
  • COMPASSION
