This is a timely, nonsectarian collection of activities and thematic units designed to help children explore and connect with their inner selves and with nature, people, and their communities. Guided by a universal definition of spirituality, lessons involve intuitive knowing, character, creativity, connections, self-reflection, emotion, and the objective study of religion. The lessons can be easily integrated across content areas and into existing curriculum and are supplemented by numerous variations and extensions. Teaching techniques are included in appendixes along with reproducible worksheets.
