Together We Are Creating A Bright Future for Humanity!
Amidst the global pandemic & lockdowns, headline news has indicated that children’s mental health is now a national emergency crisis with the highest depression, anxiety, ptsd and suicide rates in history amongst school age children.
Additionally, over 50% of all school teachers in America are experiencing extreme work related burnout and are considering or have already quit teaching, leaving a burden for the remaining school teachers to face at work.
Solving this must become a priority, the future of humanity depends upon it.
“Children are the Future” is a global initiative created to solve this mental health Crisis.
We are dedicated to providing science backed educational solutions to help children, educators and parents navigate, solve & transform our children to become fully equipped, self empowered governors of their own minds, emotions, physical health & internal state.
In partnership with research doctors from Harvard & Georgetown universities, we aim to initiate the largest children’s yoga and meditation research in America over the next 3 years, to present the indisputable evidence that these mental, physical and emotional health enhancing methods can and should be part of the essential solution provided to all children in schools across the USA and world wide.
Some research already exists, yet we aim to provide the most conclusive study through the children are the future / Harvard research initiative and we need your help. In order to demonstrate what we already know, that yoga and meditation :
How can you help?
Support Training One Teacher / One Classroom Of Children
Support training the school of your choice and up to 10 teachers to become trained & certified
You may choose to enroll and participate in the Flow State YTT200 online, as well as participate in the Yoga for Youth childrens yoga 46 hour training online and the Choose Love Movement emotional intelligence training for teachers, parents and children. This course is perfect for all levels and especially beneficial for school teachers, partners and yoga or meditation enthusiasts seeking to deepen their knowledge & skills to be an accredited trained professional teacher and join the Children are the Future movement to create a Bright future for all.
This won’t add extra cost to the school funding budget, as we can even offer the training and education directly to the school teachers, partners and administrators directly, so the teaching can become a natural part of the daily curriculum.
As the children learn to understand the nature of their own minds, emotions and how to work with the breath, their thoughts and master their inner realms, this will also result in higher test schools and greater learning for all the children as well, thus raising the standards of USA as a world power, where previously we have fallen short on the global level for our children’s learning in comparison to other school systems internationally.
What will it take?
The initial cost for the 3 year research will be possible or as low as $2 million.
We can get started for as little as $100,000 immediately and raise the remaining Funding over the course of the 3 year period.
As we raise more funds, we can expand the research across the country and To numerous other school districts, offering an even wider and more diverse Sample population for the findings.
Furthermore, the initial plan would include primarily the teachings of Kundalini And hatha yoga, as taught by the foundation we have chosen to work with.
With more funding, we would like to include both Sadhguru’s Isha yoga teachings As well as the teachings of Flow State Institute to create a more diverse Research initiative with broader understanding of which practices may be most Beneficial for the children to be taught.
Some of the teaching may be via digital video based formats, And other teachings may be live in person classes administered by Live teachers. Based on our funding and costs involved, we would like to See both live and video based teachings in the classrooms moving Forward after the research, as part of a long term Educational strategy for all children.
Children can learn anything we take the time to teach them.
They are sponges and often find yoga and meditation fun and Enjoyable when presented with these options in schools or as Extracurricular activities.
We are excited by the potential for what this initiative can and will Do for the future of humanity, as yoga has been proven to help Improve human well being in enormous capacities across the board.
