Spirituality is a tricky word…
Here is what we mean when we use it:
At SFK we are aware that the word “spirituality” means different things to different people. When some think of “spirituality” it relates to ancient religious traditions rooted in faith. To some it means secular meditation and a practice of mindfulness in day to day life. We honor and celebrate whatever it means to you currently! Nothing we offer in our lessons will conflict with anyone’s belief system on the full spectrum of orthodoxy to atheism.
What we refer to as “spirituality” is simply the part of the child that is not the body and the mind. The ineffable, beautiful, unique “spirit” (in SFK we call it “Light”) that is inside of every child. It is the deeper, purpose-and-compassion driver core of who they each are. OR The Light is one’s core – where purpose and compassion reside and one’s character is defined. We seek to educate and nourish this part. So when we named ourselves Spirituality for Kids, we simply intended to communicate that we are a program that tends to the spirit the way a great school and healthy food nurture their minds and bodies. To raise a fully balanced child we need to tend the inner garden of each part of the child – mind, body, AND spirit.
