Veda Finds Her Crown (Adults)

U-Instructor: Dana Sardano

8 hours over 4 weeks

The Veda Finds Her Crown workshop is based on the insightful children’s book, written and illustrated by Dana Sardano. Veda Finds Her Crown is an extremely powerful teaching tool for parents, caretakers, and educators alike. This charming little children’s story attached to and used in conjunction with the workbook, creates a foundation of self-awareness and an opportunity for self-reflection that sets up children for success and happiness in ALL aspects of their lives.

Dana Sardano, a 25-year veteran educator, learned early in her career that children's development and achievement are directly impacted by their wellness in the 7 energy centers located in the body, and when children understand how to recognize their own imbalances, address them, and realign themselves, they are then primed to flourish in all aspects of their lives. Dana’s entire educational career is rooted in knowing and understanding that these internal energy centers are the best way for children to keep themselves and their lives in alignment so that their outer world can reflect the health and wellness of their inner world. She delights in sharing this little rainbow-colored road map for personal wellness!

U-Instructor: Vanita Pierre

12 hours over 6 weeks

Conscious Kids is a 6-week workshop that is geared towards parents and adults who care for/work with children in some capacity.

1. Introduction + Meditation

4. Present moment awareness, also examining aspects of the human psyche, healthy vs. unhealthy ego, examining limiting beliefs etc.

U-Instructor: Dana Sardano

8 hours over 4 weeks

Dana Sardano now brings her insightful wisdom from the pages of her book Veda Finds Her Crown to live workshops, offering the Veda Finds Her Crown workshop on FindUniquelyU.com.

A 25-year veteran educator, Dana learned early in her career that children's development and achievement are directly impacted by their wellness in the 7 energy centers located in the body, and when children understand how to recognize their own imbalances, address them, and realign themselves, they are then primed to flourish in all aspects of their lives. Dana’s entire educational career is rooted in knowing and understanding that these internal energy centers are the best way for children to keep themselves and their lives in alignment so that their outer world can reflect the health and wellness of their inner world. She delights in sharing with the children this little rainbow-colored road map for personal wellness!

Dana facilitates this workshop by introducing the concepts through classroom instruction, utilizing the story for a deeper understanding of these concepts, integrating the concepts through activities and exercises in the workbook, and concluding through class discussion and Q&A.

The beauty of Dana’s approach to children’s educational needs is that she focuses on the psychology of the children and emphasizes the practicality of the chakra system. Her compassion, warmth, and sense of humor create a learning environment that is engaging and interesting for all ages and levels of learning.
