What is Inamojo™?
Inamojo™ offers Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) programs for children of primary school age.
To deliver them, we train primary school teachers.... but we also train external facilitators.... parents, healers, yoga teachers.... anyone who
feels the call to create a healthy part-time career out of going into schools and helping to nurture children's well-being!
We aim to help children with lessons and skills that will help them navigate life's challenges with greater understanding - of themselves and others - and greater resilience.
Each program comprises 9 x one-hour classes, all using a carefully-structured mix of stories, music, movement and creative art. Children absolutely love these classes!
The stories have been written to teach important life-lessons in ways that children can understand, and find engaging.
They then get to 'feel' their way into each story by embodying the characters in a music and movement session, before expressing their feelings about the story in a piece of creative art.
Relaxation and emotional self-management techniques such as belly-breathing and mindfulness are also taught in these classes. Each class follows the same format, but each focuses on a different theme and learning experience.
The first 9-class series is woven around the story of a friendly dragon called Naga, who unfortunately has forgotten who he is. Class by class, the children help him to remember, while learning important lessons about themselves along the way.
Primary schools are increasingly keen to offer wellbeing programs such as this, but most lack the resources to develop their own. So a proven, 'off-the-shelf' inamojo™ program, offered by a fully-trained facilitator, can be a wonderful solution.
Inamojo was created by the team behind the world-renowned Chakradance™ for adults, with help
from many experts in childhood development and primary education.
It is based on the integrative ‘map’ of the chakra system, together with the best-regarded contemporary approaches to Early Childhood Development. These foundations underpin and drive the key developmental themes in each class.
The structure of our 9-week inamojo™ programs
Class 1: Introduction to the story and characters
Class 2: Trusting your instincts
Class 3: Feeling and managing your emotions
Class 4: Self-esteem, confidence, courage
Class 5: Compassion and kindness
Class 6: Truthful communication
Class 7: Imagination, dreams and goals
Class 8: Self-awareness and belonging
Class 9: Integration and celebration
We aim to assist the children to integrate their inamojo experience into daily life, so they have tools and knowledge to help them grow.
"We have been very impressed by the opportunity inamojo has provided to our students. The wonderful blend of story, dance and art has enabled them to explore and express their feelings as they respond to 'the journey of Naga'. We see this program as an integral part of our Early Years experience for our students".
