Ethics For Children, Tweens & Teens

Here, young humans empower their ethical development, create life-long freindships, and stand up with care and courage for a GOOD WORLD in action.

Fall Season Ahead




Young Ethical Explorers Fall Season 2017: 

PEACE WORK / PEACE PLAY


Send RSVPs or Inquiries to
Inviting all NYC Humane Families:  
New comers are most welcome. 

Special Fall Season Focus:  "STORY-PLAY" 
Thematic sessions invite children to face story-based ethical dilemmas, as they are supported in conveying their ideas on paper, and transforming  them into presentation. The goal is to grow a community of young ethical writers whose prose and poetry will take on the big social and environmental issues of their time.  
1st and 2nd Sundays are lead by Guest-teacher Deepali Srivastava, founder of Writefully Ours 
Other sessions are led by organizer, Audrey Kindred, with special guests and themes.

Zombie Research Society!
Yoga's corpse pose is a resting technique of letting go.  We'll take it for an energizing connection to seasonal themes of our skeleton bones, blood, heart, brain and feeling.  We'll "zombie out" and then recharge batteries to reinvigorate our bodies and brains!  We'll use the zombie study to ask what does it mean to FEEL alive! This is a playful exploration of heavy themes.  We'll all get membership cards for the Zombie Research Society!

October 29th, 11am: 
Happy Bones Festival
-- bring a picture & story of an ancestor to this fusion-style "dia de los muertos"  
We'll have a DAY OF THE DEAD to stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. This is a celebratory connection to 'roots' and an exploration of ancestry.
