Lovescaping Classes

Our pilot programs consist of 17 one-hour sessions (one session per pillar plus introduction and conclusion) where we explore each pillar of Lovescaping through a series of activities including, but not limited to, circles, discussions, reflections, games, role-plays and artistic creation. Using a uBuntu approach, we collectively build a community by establishing trust and promoting healing. We focus on filling the gap that exists between knowing what the pillars mean and practicing them. Our groups have a maximum of 15 students to ensure that we can build a solid foundation of trust and take a deep dive into Lovescaping.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, students will:

  • Learn to develop self-love, self-esteem and self-awareness.
  • Learn to express their feelings and emotions using appropriate language and non-verbal communication.
  • Understand, define and practice each pillar of Lovescaping.
  • Learn to understand and relate to others who are different from them, using empathy as a guiding pillar.
  • Learn to match their actions to their words so that they practice congruency and understand the impact of their actions on people’s lives.
  • Begin a healing process based on the active practice of the pillars of Lovescaping, both as a group and individually.
  • Gain the social and emotional skills that will allow them to face adversity and challenges as they transition from grade to grade.
