Synapse Wisdom

You are invited to take a deep breath, click on students' art work, and listen to the Wisdom from Within recorded by Synapse students. Each recording starts and ends with a calming soundscape composed and performed by Level 1 students.

In this project, TK - 4th grade students were asked to offer their empathy and presence to those who are having a challenging time. When you hear "I am here for you," it is a message we learned from our Change Maker, Thích Nhất Hạnh, "The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence."

Many reflected on their social-emotional lessons such as the one using Plutchik model. Others shared social-emotional strategies that they learned in Self Science classes. This project serves as students' "gift" to the greater community sharing their compassionate wisdom coming from inside.

Please enjoy the Wisdom from Within recordings, and visit us again to share the gift of our presence!

Students also wanted to include those who speak languages other than English, such as Farsi, French, German, Lebanese, Mandarin, Spanish, Russian or Vietnamese.

This is a collaborative project among Self Science, Spanish Language, Performing Arts and Visual Arts classes originally inspired by Jessica Martin of West Side Elementary in Healdsburg, California.
