Children Point the Way to Emotional Health through Music & Dance
How do you deal with the Fire of Anger? How do you handle the Snake of Jealousy? In this instructional Video, children dance, sing and dialogue their way through a Tibetan Buddhist Classic that dramatizes eight emotional challenges, including the Demon of Doubt and the Ocean of Desire. Tara, the heroine, offers timely advise on how to deal with such intense challenges.
The song and dance drama were created by Prema Dasara. The video was filmed by Anahata Iradah during a one week residency with the staff and students of Mountain Road School at the Abode of the Message in New York State. The images are cuteness itself as children from the ages of 3-11 candidly talk about their feelings and learn the simple movements. Prema taught the different classes with Anahata playing the musical accompaniment., Parents and teachers immediately noted the influence of the dance in their family interactions.
