A message from Sat Nam Fest Kids Camp Director, Jai Fuller.
We’re looking forward to Sat Nam Fest West and being with all the children on the beautiful land at Joshua Tree! It’s been a long cold winter here in New England and it brings warmth to my heart and a smile on my face thinking about being out in the warm sun playing nature games and exploring together with the children during our time together at the festival.
This year we plan to really get out and enjoy nature to the fullest. We’ll be taking snacks to go, in our back packs so we can eat together on the hillside over looking the land. Our special craft will be creating sacred prayer mobiles combining found objects from our outdoor explorations with the children’s personal prayers. We hope to display them before the festival is over for everyone to enjoy. We have numerous non competitive nature games and activities that help children to learn and understand more about the eco-system and grow a deeper connection to the land and the healing energy of our Mother Earth. Inspiration from nature will be woven into fun daily yoga classes for the children. We’ll have lot’s of music and chanting during these classes with my mother and her guitar, and learn many favorite mantras together.
Working with children in a spiritual capacity has always been my passion. Helping them to see their beauty and radiance, and empowering them to be the shining stars that they truly are, fills me with joy! I am blessed to have my mother, Amar Fuller by my side again for this festival bringing all her tremendous experience as a caring provider for children, her spiritual wisdom and grand-mothering energy adds so much to the program. The Sat Nam Fest children’s program is a way for the whole family to experience the uplifting magic of kundalini yoga and mantras. Families will leave, inspired, with a full heart and happy radiant children!
