Carola Stepper leads one of our most unique, self-empowerment Village Fair classes. A class very rarely offered to children yet one that has the potential to make a significant difference in their lives going forward in a couple of ways. Carola teachers campers how to activate Acupressure points to self-heal, and guides the children to heal themselves when in pain and offer healing to each other. Two big takeaways of her class are learning the acupressure points and practices of consent. Here's a glimpse into her class yesterday:
Carola: Do you believe you are all healers?
Carola: Do you believe the body can heal itself?
Carola: What do you do before you touch someone for massage or Acupressure?
Kids: Ask before touching and no means no!
(Mr Teddy Bear was their model.)
Carola: Show me where you press if Mr Teddy Bear's knee hurts? (See picture!)
They loved the massage train so much, they wanted to do it again at the end of the session, so they did!
