Green Spiral Easter Gathering for Families
Green Spiral Nomadic Journey - Family Gathering
Easter in Malaga
English Village immersion for families
From 9th to17th April 2017
As we enter our sixth year organising Family Learning Adventures at our home in Ireland, we are now bringing Green Spiral to Spain. The programme will continue to focus on the alchemy of mixing new activities (rural crafts,natural living, mind/body/spirit development, local excursions) hand in hand with English language acquisition. We believe that new experiential learning opens our minds to acquire new language; and new language opens our hearts to personal transformation and growth.
This week-long Easter programme will see the Green Spiral crew from Ireland travelling to the Andalusian land of Malagan Axarquia, close to Nerja. http://www.alojamientoruralelmolino.es/indexquienes.html
Accommodation will be in a big Arabic Mill where we all be staying and food will be provided on site by our own Cooks.
Programme Outline (as always we'll adapt the activities to suit the families participating)
Introductory workshops to topics such as Meditation, Qi Gong, Yoga, Visioning & Soul Retrieval and/or compassionate communication.
English language learning with a communicative, playful approach. This is a classroom with open doors, where we connect with what is going on around us and weave formal and informal learning together according to the needs of the participants.
Storytelling: an extended project through English for each family group, integrating artistic production, theatre and music. Over several days we will create our own figures, stage and set using natural materials from local sources. The magic happens when parents and children journey together into the realm of their own imagination, with startling results. The stories told at the end of the workshop draw laughter, tears and applause from the other participants.
As usual, the programme is designed to support parents and their children who wish to both relax and find stimulation together with other families.
