Seeds of Greatness

Play:
Our goal is to awaken and stimulate one's inherent playful creativity to learn about the value of self so they may be of value to their neighbors and community. We provide instruction but more importantly we encourage one to simply play with the materials, purchased with donations, to encourage the use of their imaginations so they may explore their own individual ideas.

Follow Your Heart Creativity Workshops and retreats are designed to assist one in self discovery explored through a world of creative possibilities by supporting one to be a childlike by engaging in playful, fun filled creative activities.

Play is not only vital to a child, but to everyone's healthy development. It fosters social skills and provides one the space and freedom to be themselves. Play also helps one relieve stress and pressure thusly supporting their individual and unique powers of imagination.

Everyone needs and desires plenty of opportunity for creative play and thinking. All children not only benefit from but deserve the time to freely express themselves openly and without judgment. 

Most people unfortunately have to be more focused on and engaged in survival; that does not lend itself adequate time to play where they can be creative.

Creativity is far more than drawing or painting. There is photography, music, sculpting, design, dancing, writing, building, cooking, gardening and more. We provide these children with the time, the guidance and a broad range of creative materials to explore and pursue bringing their imagination to life.



"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us is something valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." E. E. Cummings

Healing:
Creative expression can move a child beyond just an artful lifestyle to a healing experience.  Participation in creative activities can assist a child with shaping their sense of self and also render physical, mental and emotional healing.




Healing a Child with Art Creative expression can be especially helpful for children and adults in all walks of life facing conflict or transition and for victims of abuse or trauma; as it provides a vehicle to effectively communicate their thoughts and feelings they may otherwise have difficulty articulating,



Young children often have trouble dealing with emotions because they have a limited vocabulary or are too intimidated to engage in a  question and answer dialogue with a counselor.

Through creativity children are helped in bringing their suppressed emotions and negative beliefs about self to the surface where they can be addressed and healed.

Make A Wish Growth:
Creativity not only helps heal emotionally but also fosters mental growth; as it encourages one to try out new ideas, to welcome original thought and to engage in new thinking processes and out of the box problem solving. Creativity helps one not only acknowledge but continue to explore and celebrate their unique talents and gifts; so they may develop self-confidence, self-esteem, self-worth and self-responsibility, as well as build mental acuity, improve problem solving skills and shape a more empowering future.

Teaching Children Respect for Nature
Respect:
A child, the community and the world benefit when one is guided to reach their greatest potential.  At One World Heart we engage in outdoor activities and exploration to help motivate creative expression . Our participants are escorted on hikes with mentors to learn about the benefits of wild flowers and herbs with an emphasis on awareness for all living things and the honor and respect they also deserve.

Respect for Nature
On Going Support and Outcome Production:
We provide ongoing support after our initial workshop or retreat with an online program that allows the participants of our Follow Your Heart Program to access professional mentors for additional or specific guidance.

Besides building their self esteem by supporting their creative potential; each child may opt to keep their creations or they may choose to contribute their individual accomplishment to One World Heart's Worldwide online gallery/store.

A percentage of  the proceeds go directly to the creator to instill a sense of pride for their accomplishment and a percentage goes to One World Heart, Ltd; as the their contribution to continue the cycle of giving to help themselves as well as materials and workshops for other children.

"It is never too late or early for appreciating fine art. Whether it be music, painting, reading or writing, take some time out of your week to create or admire."
"The real purpose for each of us in the world is to listen and respond to your own heart, when another heart calls out for help. Follow your heart!"
Helping Children Take a moment to help another...One simple thing can change a child's life forever.
