Show 77 – MAGIC© Circles and energy work with kids

Karen MacPherson Clark is a retired Educational Assistant, award winning public speaker, and mother of five grown children. When she first learned about the calming and healing effects of energy work like TT (Therapeutic Touch) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), she wanted to share that with the high-risk kids in her classroom. At the time, there were students with Autism, Anxiety Disorder and Oppositional Defiance Disorder in her classroom. After a collaborative effort with Laurie Vonk, a grade 1/2 classroom teacher, MAGIC© Circles was born. The MAGIC© Circle helped children deal with issues such as divorce, family conflict and the death of loved ones. The positive affirmations encouraged healthier self-esteem and improved academic performance. Most importantly, Karen learned by direct experience that by entrusting community to students and those “at risk of being bullies,” students will learn acceptance for themselves and their peers, as well as developing coping skills for a lifetime of interaction with others.
