Summary

In our last session of new material, we focus on body sensations that are soothing and pleasant. Practicing ways to lower our heart rate has been a part of every session and thus, by the time Session 9 occurs, children are very good at noticing and embracing calm, soothing sensations, This session is about rejoicing in moments of slow-moving wonderment – drifting off into a daydream, feeling the warmth of a smile, feeling alert as your senses take in everything around you. Children practice noticing everything surrounding them when they just stop and take in the moment. They see where their mind travels to when they find a restful spot to day dream. They feel time slipping away as they become engrossed in something that really focuses their attention. Catching and holding onto soothing moments is a wonderful way to live.
