Often asked what if a child does not know what he/ she likes?

Here is a small story
After couple of weeks spent at the campus, one child with tears and anger expressed "I don't know what I want to learn".

Ah! I was crying inside!

Mindfulness

Mindfullness is the themes of the week..a session on Mindfulness to bring awareness about awareness!

One can call it awareness or way of living. Awareness and knowing what are you thinkjng, what are you feeling, what are you doing now!

When it selects it automatically rejects (not choosing)... sometimes choosing pleasant sometimes not pleasant.
