At i.b.mee., we have developed an innovative educational philosophy and curriculum called the W.E.L.L. Kids NOW® System, based on the new “living, learning and being” framework called the Empowerment Education Paradigm, which we would like to see, in theory and practice, replace the current, conventional, outdated educational system philosophy that is based in materialism, competitive economics, rank, and the exploitation of the earth’s resources (reductionism).
Through our holistic system, we have been able to shift the so-called behaviorally and academically challenged children (as well as the stressed-out, overwhelmed, perfectionistic students who are the #1 group of kids that commit suicide) who attend the current education system into intrinsically motivated, passionate, and cooperative learners and contributors (which is their natural state to begin with).
The W.E.L.L. Kids NOW® System is based in evidence around the power of play and passion -based learning along with ensuring a safe, stable and supportive connection between the students and adults that emphasizes strength-based asset development, high-level wellness, heart-centered leadership, resiliency (neuroscience) and intrinsic coaching and learning research. The system is based on i.b.mee.’s Universal Principles of Success that make up the new Empowerment Education Paradigm.
We have been coaching, training and mentoring adults who work with children to learn these Principles of Success and skills in the new system so that they can easily provide the space, time and relationships that young people need to re-remember their true nature about learning and get excited about finding their own individual passions and purpose and experience a fun way to learn that is developmentally appropriate for each child. We have also found that when the adults experience these new empowering relationships and environments then they can really never turn back to the old-disempowering ways. In return, as adults show up in a connected and calm way, we have found that young people will truly experience a new empowering way to be themselves and experience true health, happiness, authenticity and success.
Teachers are stressed dealing with old educational philosophies and a new-type of student. They want to know HOW to make their classroom a place where everyone thrives. Our in-the-classroom innovative program help teachers shift into the 21st century, whole-child, empowerment learning paradigm.
The current educational system has made it challenging for students to truly find their passions and gain clarity and confidence in their next steps to creating a future that is exciting, meaningful, and fruitful. Our student programs give students the support they need now!
Teachers, staff and students are amazing, caring, and intelligent people. But, they can only feel as healthy and fulfilled as the system above them allows. It is in the school’s “hidden” messages that determines what behaviors, thoughts and emotions students and staff will experience and bring out into the world. If you are a school administrator who would like to learn more about how to truly bring to life a healthy and empowering school, please contact us.
As teachers, students, and schools becomes more empowered and healthy, it is crucial that the parents get involved learning the same new-paradigm concepts and skills. Our parent coaching program, The W.E.L.L. Home, provides a solid foundation for parents of the students in our programs to truly empower their child.
