To be in flow to learn and grow.
The more the people are feeling vibrations of playfulness, joy, trust, safety, gratitude, care and love, the more brightness is in HERE and NOW. Realize that every time you create positive emotions, you set the positive energy in motion. Sooner or later you may find yourself in a flow of the bright moment, which appears as timeless, egoless, effortless and rich in information. Such moments are recognized as 'aha' in science, and as a 'flow' or 'in the zone' in arts and sports.
Our mission spawned from an idea of recognizing the true potentials of integral education and positive psychology that are the underlying concepts of the Playness pedagogy.
"Early childhood education is the key to the betterment of society."
The laws of human actions are depending on behavioral paradigms embedded in our subconscious mind that was to a large degree conditioned in our early childhood.
We believe that conscious integral education is the only way to support children on the lifetime journey of co-creating HERE and NOW as envisioned reality in its full potential.
The flourishing society can only be achieved by flourishing individuals that invest hearts and minds into connected co-existence of all forms of life at the present moment. Only by being attuned to our physical, emotional, social, and spiritual dimensions, we can unleash our full potentials
as individuals and as humanity.
"The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence."
Imagine that you have been educated otherwise.
Imagine that you have been taught that you are literally integral part of a universal matrix, where everything is connected to everything. Imagine that the hearts and minds of our children resonate with joy, peace, love, appreciation, care and welfare on global scale. Realize that we have all the assets to reach out for our most noble human aspirations. Just imagine that we are now standing on the crossroad of human destiny. What path do we take?
It's Playness Time!
Playness pedagogy is movement based approach. We are moving bodies, hearts and minds of the children. Movement is a sign of life, a sign of energy flow. Movement is directly connected to our physical, emotional and cognitive reality. Only such profound and all-encompassing understanding of movement provides a solid ground for all of us to grow from and create a flourishing society.
In order to create this shared mission of playful unity we now need passionate and awakened teachers that can kindle a spark in the eyes of the children.
As humanity we move together, we play together, we learn together, we stay together, we feel together, we grow together, we flow together, we glow together!
Active, curious, playful and healthy are children who are in contact with their inner potentials and in harmony with the external environment. Such children are tuned in to the network of life, to which our whole world belongs, and are therefore capable of evolving as caring humanity. This is a necessary condition for developing a bearer of a healthy future, as they will be able to resist the pathologies of our time in a constructive way.
"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration."
World wide web is connecting us beyond fragmented society. For the first time we have a chance to transcend our fragile and blind faith in individual growth at the expense of others.
We have no other way than to grow together as humanity in a broken world where species are going extinct on a daily basis. Humanity is being tested these days. We are walking on the edge. How much more Nature can tolerate and feed our egoistic and anhropocentric drives?
Our children will not face the choices we face. The seeds of their opportunities are being planted today. And that is exactly what our vision at Playness is. What we can do is to improve education and make a new generation accountable as humanity in unity.
"Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time."
For a human being one of the most important competence is being well embodied. Our body is the most firm, visible, mesurable and obvious form of our existence but not the only one. The physical wellbeing is substantial and is directly connected to the natural environment. By sensing the environmental stimula with external (sight, taste, touch, smell, hearing) and internal (balance, proprioception, pressure, temperature, energy, intuition) sensory organs we become aware of our reality. Sensitivity is an ability to be aware of stimula and is a precondition for any other complex function that enables the human being to take advantage of intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual potentials.
The human body is designed to move. We are senso-kinetic beings. Many complex forms of emotional and social cognition are to a large degree dependent on embodied experiences from early childhood onwards. The task of the playness teacher is to bring forth to consciouss awareness all the feelings that the child might be experiencing with no judgement whether good or bad. Feelings are the results of sensitivity that comes as an integrated sign at physical, emotional, thoughtful or intuitive level of feedback. This feedback is vital for human flourishing at any stage of development and growth. The more we are able to feel, the more fine-tuned the levels of our integral existence are, and the more skillful we are in reading and interpreting the feelings that appear on any of those levels, the more likely we are able to respond consciously and constructively within the given context.
Therefore we are grounding the embodied human being to its most primal
resources of sensitivity, playfulness and cognition.
Playness teacher/coach is a strong facilitator of integral senso-kinetic education that is serving the awareness of health and well-being on individual and global level. Playness pedagogy is thus promoting core pillars of integral education inevitable in the 21st century. These capacities are desperately needed to meet the complex and urgent problems of the times. For playness teachers the ultimate concern is helping learners, global citizens and future citizens, move vibrantly toward developing these capacities.
"Existence, the physical universe, is basically playful. This is the real secret of life – to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play."
