Moving Universe is an evolving, multi-faceted organization with a diversity of programmes and offerings rooted in mindfulness, loving kindness practices, and social and emotional learning (SEL). Both a not-for-profit production house and independent publisher, Moving Universe promotes mindfulness education through the arts.
Moving Universe has developed a unique stress reducing, mindfulness-based approach to social and emotional learning. It's called the 3aRs. The training enhances attention and empowers leadership for learners of all ages including corporate clients. The 3aRs provide mood management skills to address recurring moods such as rage and depression. Research has shown that teenagers are most affected in first onset depression.
The 3aRs training provides skills as necessary as literacy and numeracy. The 3aRs are relationship skills for a happy life.
The 3aRs training provides auxiliary relational skills – Remembering, Reasoning, and Responsibility – that consolidate the flourishing of a person’s personal relationship with their inner dimensions, in addition to the cognitive dimension.
Remembering skills are primarily concerned with learning present moment recollection of your body sensations, thoughts and feelings. Remembering skills build attention, health, happiness and enhance memory.
Reasoning skills imply the establishment of connections between concepts, the organisation of knowledge and the assimilation of acquired notions in order to solve problems. Reasoning is also relevant to the analysis of one’s own actions, of the motivations underlying them, and of their consequences.
Responsibility skills are primarily an embodied sense of moment-to-moment compassionate caring for your body, speech and mind. Present moment recollection promotes the friendly awareness of your metacognitive processes. Responsibility in caring for yourself makes individuals aware of interpersonal relationships and the social implications of personal behaviours.
