Wishes made and trees planted by children at Universal Mandala
Universal Mandala in Ibiza, Spain, is an educational center for children 3 to 12 years of age.
The program followed at Universal Mandala is based on a social, emotional, and ethical approach to learning. Essential universal principles and laws are integrated into everything they do at the school.
As part of the regenerative agriculture program at Universal Mandala, a fruit orchard is being developed. Recently, the children planted several trees in this orchard.
Each tree was planted with a mindful intention for the benefit of all living beings big and small.
First, the children consciously made their wishes. Then, they sent these wishes into the soil and up the roots of the trees.
Their wishes included:
- that each tree has a lot of love, water, and sun to grow well.
- the expression of gratitude for the fruit that will grow and be enjoyed by them together.
- that the bees, insects, and other animals find a home, shelter, and food and can live happily around the trees.
- that each tree can have a long and healthy life, benefiting many beings for many years to come.
Thank you for your well-wishes, dear children! We are so happy to learn from the examples of our youth. May your wishes come true!
