INCLUSION OF CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION presented by Erin Berry

Erin will speak about her research project which looks at the inclusion of children with disabilities in physical education classes, examining the relationship between physical educators and teachers aides and trying to determine the best practices for inclusion.

This relates to the first UU principle: the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Part of the project gives a rationale for the right of every child to receive free and appropriate education despite any individual differences. Also in terms of the second principle: justice, equity and compassion in human relations, the project studies the relationship between the professionals, mainly how they communicate and cooperate with each other as well as the children in the classroom.

HEALING INTO JOY - STORIES OF LOSS AND RENEWAL FROM A JEWISH MYSTIC presented by Rabbi Sherril Gilbert

“There is nothing more whole than a heart broken open” is a famous Jewish mystical teaching about healing. The central aim of Jewish spiritual healing is to restore joy, wholeness, and connections to a world in which brokenness seems inevitable. Weaving personal stories of loss and renewal with teachings from Jewish mysticism and ancient wisdom literature, Rabbi Sherril takes us on a journey of transformation that exemplifies what is possible when we tap into the spiritual energy that lies within.

CHANGE IS FREEDOM presented by Nathalie Hainault

We all have gone through amazing changes in our lives. Small changes, big changes....However, no matter who we are, what our story is, where we come from, there are those changes that for some reason we seem to endlessly delay or we just cannot take the positive actions to initiate those changes. Together we will look at the source of our limiting beliefs, travel in space and hey! Why not...start our Jedi training! My name is Nathalie Hainaut, I am a member of LUUC and I believe Change is Freedom.
