To get myself back on track with my Year-And-A-Day beginner/kids series, I decided to start back up with easy lessons on the Elements.
I decided to start with Air. It is the first Element I invoke during Circle. And, as my last lesson was on Circles, this makes sense to me.
Air is the element of the mind. We take walks in the fresh air to clear our heads. For my kiddo, I will have him walk with me while we discuss the aspects of Air and how we use this Element everyday. His homework will be to journal his thoughts on Air.
