We made a summer mandala today – creating a ring using our body as a compass and then laying out flowers around the periphery. We then made a pyramid in the middle and decorated it with ferns and more flowers. In this way we learned that a pyramid has four sides – but has triangle as a side. Scared geometry is everywhere – the circle (eternity), the square (Earth) and the triangle (Trimurti).
Working with pruning saws – our participants are given real tools to work with – which can be shocking I guess for some… but from the age of 6 they are taught to respect and use these tools. Here the child saws a stick to create a whole arsenal – today we made a pick axe and a spear.
