Helping children navigate the world around them
Space Makers is a resource for schools and churches from the Diocese of Oxford. Accessible to children and young people of all faiths and worldviews, five contemplative practices help schools and churches to embrace some of the ancient wisdom of the Christian tradition and assist children in navigating the world around them. Climate anxiety and the vast increase in screen time and exposure to social media seem to be causes of deteriorating mental health in young people.
The ancient contemplative traditions of Christianity, like its secular cousin ‘mindfulness’, have a lot to offer at this time. Space Makers brings five contemplative practices into the life of our schools and churches.
