Spirit Play training coming to town

Mark your calendars on April 29, 2017

The First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo is offering a training day to learn the Spirit Play curriculum Saturday April 29, 2017.

This methodology is based on Maria Montessori’s theory of children’s learning processes.  The curriculum incorporates hands-on, aesthetic story and art materials to help the children make sense of life’s religious questions and spiritual experiences.  The stories come from our six Unitarian Sources and our seven Unitarian principles. Check out our Children and Families page for more information and registration.
