StoryYoga for Children
StoryYoga for Children was born from an Inspiration to share stories that evoke and awaken more beautiful qualities of human nature from the depths of our Soul and Spirit. Most stories today reflect the darkness, fear, and division in our world, so it is more important than ever to create and share stories that will awaken qualities that will help our world to heal and grow beyond the old cultural, social, and spiritual stories that keep us stuck in a world that no longer reflects the Truth and Life that we seek and wish to live in.
StoryYoga wishes to share stories, images and other resources that will awaken greater Beauty, Light, Peace, Harmony, Unity and Love into our collective consciousness. Our children need the highest quality of experiences – especially in the entertainment world – so that they may find their own Inner Power to create a world that reflects the Beauty, Truth, Light, and Peace that we all aspire for.
So, no matter whether you are a child, have children, or simply are a Child in Soul and Spirit, we welcome you to participate in this Journey of a New Movement for Positive Storytelling. Start by visiting our website at www.storyyoga.wordpress.com, and then share this page and the website with those in your life who may be inspired by this. Share your stories here, or support this project in other ways….or just be Inspired by what is offered!

Integral Paradigm of Knowledge
Integral Paradigm of Knowledge (IPK) is the concept developed by a group of researchers since 2001.
Art-Studio “12 Qualities” is a part of IPK Educational Network dedicated to the theoretical and applied research in the studies of the Faculties of Consciousness, fundamentals and profundities of their functionalities in relations to each other and fields of application. We define them as major approaches to Knowledge: psychological, philosophical, linguistic, sociological, artistic and scientific.
These approaches are based on our major Faculties of Consciousness, such as thinking, seeing, speaking, hearing, feeling/emoting, and being in the body. Diving deeper into their functionality and interconnectedness brings us closer to the understanding of the Integral Paradigm of Knowledge.
“Our consciousness is like a young bird; it must learn to use its wings”
KALVI is a group of volunteers living and working in the international town, Auroville, in South India.
We create a new kind of educational games (activities) which nurture a child’s inner awareness.
We are working from our hearts guided by an inner inspiration. We believe in the fact that change starts on an individual level. As each individual comes into contact with his or her core uniqueness, s/he begins to realise the deeper beauty in life.
We want children to get an education that opens their consciousness so as to stimulate their all-around sensibilities.
KALVI creates didactic material to develop the 6 faculties of consciousness – thinking, seeing, hearing, speaking, energy body, and physical body- to give children the capacity to evolve a better world tomorrow.
About our games:
We pay close attention to memory, emotions and thinking while developing our educational materials. We want the learner to develop thinking skills that are rational, logical, analytic, systematic, strategic, tactical, divergent, convergent, conceptual, symbolic, creative and intuitive.
We try to produce new educational materials that in this hectic day and age can also offer a child the opportunity to develop silence in the mind, reflection and introspection.
Art Studio “12 Qualities” contributes to KALVI initiatives.
