Protecting the Spirit of Childhood: Educating Palestinian...All Paths Divinity School is a proud sponsor of this event…

Violence of any kind, early in life – either experienced or observed – can have long-lasting and detrimental impacts on children. Research has shown that the early years in a child’s life—while the human brain is forming—represent a critically important window of opportunity to develop a child’s full potential and shape key academic, social, and cognitive skills that determine a child’s success in school and in life.  A nurturing environment in the early years can modify an individual’s brain development and the ability to deal with stressful conditions later in life.  Join us March 16 for an afternoon to learn how young Palestinian children’s sense of well-being can benefit from the Waldorf approach to early childhood education.

While we pray that the negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians are fruitful, reGeneration continues working on what can be done today to benefit Palestinian children through an innovative and healing education. Join us to learn about the seeds being planted now!
