Mindfulness meets Outdoor Play

 

 

When kids engage in meaningful outdoor experiences, they're better able to reconnect with themselves, others, and the world around them in a special way. 

Society today is fueled by pressure, which triggers an "alert" state: fight, flight, or freeze. This stimulates a stress response, essentially shutting off the part of the brain that allows kids to regulate emotions, solve problems, make good choices, & learn how to connect with each other. 

 

In nature, kids feel safe enough to shut down this "alert" state, opening them up to new experiences, challenges, relationships, and learning opportunities.They learn to trust themselves and their ability to make choices for themselves, deciding together where to go and what to do at the start of each session.

 

Traveling in the special nature van to the selected location is part of the fun: giving kids access to beautiful places near Los Angeles they wouldn't ordinarily experience.

 

Using these special outdoor locations as our classroom, kids connect through mindfulness programs designed to inspire them: showing them how to approach life in a more meaningful, magical and heart-centered way!

To: Paths & Pages 

From: Some Amazing Parents

 

"Growing up in LA, it's such a powerful thing to build this connection to nature to keep you grounded. It is a huge gift for my kid. Thank you for making it so fun for him! I asked him tonight at dinner what he liked best about himself, and he said: 'I'm Adventurous!'"

"This program is my daughter's favorite thing and you are her hero!!!" 

"Our boys had the best day ever yesterday. So much so they begged us to go back again today (Sunday)! We have seen our boys thrive in nature, and by being around you, Ashley. You are a guide in so many ways. Thank you!"

To: Paths & Pages 

From: Some Amazing Kids

"I am so happy! Paths & Pages is so... I don't know how to explain it, but it feels warm when I am there." 

"I love how when I go to your camp, I get to have someone who understands me. Everyone thinks I am weird and funny, but they don't understand weird. I feel that when I come here, you know what I mean when I do something completely weird! I love you and your camp so much!"

"Last night, I was a little overwhelmed for some reason, so in my head, I called my spirit animals like you showed us at Paths & Pages. I just talked to them in my head and they said: 'be happy, be peaceful, be adventurous' Then after 5 minutes I said thank you and I felt a tingling feeling in my body. After that, I didn't feel overwhelmed anymore!"

"You are an amazing, strong, and powerful woman. You are a great role model for me and all other girls. You make me so proud of myself. You make me a better person. I love you!"
