Expand Your Mind

Expand Your Mind

The world of Religious traditions brings with it a rich tapestry of mind blowing achievements. This resource is designed to re-calibrate learners perceptions of reality. Learners are presented with the awe inspiring dedication of the Shaolin Grandmaster that managed to perform the form of "One Finger Zen", the Shaivite Hindu Sadhu Amar Bharati who has held his arm in the air for over 14years (this is a tradition in the GurShishya Pranpara that can be traced back 1000's of years) and the Buddha Boy who sat in meditation under a tree for many months in Nepal. The resource then forces learners to gain a deeper understanding of Humankind by exploring the vast size of the Universe around us. Best suited to KS3, i personally use this lesson as an introduction to my teaching when I begin teaching at a new school. I have had outstanding feedback on this lesson and the way it engages learners in deep profound thought.
