The ‘chilax relaxation for children and parents information session’ will be held on Wednesday, November 7. It will be held at the North Nowra Community Centre from 7.30pm, with everyone welcome.
It will later run as an after school program and is aimed at children aged between four and 10-years-old.
The core of the program is storytelling, relaxation and visualisation.
The event will be hosted by Colleen Langan, a semi-retired early childhood teacher, storyteller, TAFE teacher and university tutor.
Colleen has worked with children and their parents for many years.
“The aim of the program is to reduce stress and increase self-esteem,” Colleen said.
“The core work is storytelling and uses imagination as a method to create an imaginary place and story where children feel good about themselves.
“Family life is very busy with many demands and expectations. Without giving time to relax and rejuvenate, this can cause stress.- Colleen Langan
“There are a number of other elements in the program that, I believe, together will assist the children and adults to release stress, help them to cool down and stay calm.”
Colleen said a range of techniques, including breathing practices to relax, calm and balance our body, mind and emotions, qigong practices to release tension, stress, tiredness or excess energy and mindfulness techniques to focus on our body, emotions and breath will be discussed.
Colleen said the demands of everyday family life make this program crucial to building and sustaining a happy household.
“Family life is very busy with many demands and expectations,” she said.
“Without giving time to relax and rejuvenate, this can cause stress.
“It is difficult to prolong this high level of activity over a long period of time without illness or fatigue for children and for parents.”
Colleen teaches meditation and energy healing and has a Master of Arts in Literature and Writing, Graduate Diploma of Children’s Literature and Diploma of Teaching, Early Childhood.
