Artistic Director, Trisha Lee's new joint anthology and CD A Moon on Water is receiving rave reviews.
‘Spiritual intelligence' is the innate ability that all children have to find greater wonder and purpose in their lives, through the lives that they are already leading. Natural curiosity, a sense of playfulness and fun, the urge to question - these are the resources that all children possess and can use to explore more deeply who they are and what their existence can mean to them.
A Moon on Water is intended as a workbook of practical ideas and activities for use in schools that can be applied in a range of contexts across the curriculum; as a basis for philosophical enquiry, for exploring feelings and enhancing emotional resourcefulness, for adding the dimension of values to the subjects and knowledge that children study. In short the book seeks to show children how to connect ‘who they are with what they do, with why they are here'.
`This is a rare and compelling book, one that consistently demonstrates a profound respect for the intelligence and spiritual lives of children, and those who teach them. Story after story takes us into the larger dimensions of life, and the questions that need to be asked but which can never be answered. I found myself wanting to engage immediately with the children in my life, to share these stories and to explore together where they would lead us. And I know that as teachers guide their students into these wondrous and life-affirming stories, they too will be nourished and awakened.`
