APEC Learning Center incorporates love, peace and harmony into company philosophy and staff training
Master Claudia Thompson
Atlanta, Georgia, USA
I have been doing community outreach for over twenty-five years with children and homeless families as my main focus. I stepped out of my very comfortable life and environment to serve in any way I could. I also collaborated with others to do projects, including clients from my retail shop. Over the years, I have learned from and worked side by side with many people like me who were on a mission to be of service. Serving in my community has helped me develop greater compassion and a deeper understanding of what the reality is for many people, and the adversity they face on a daily basis.
As a student of Master Sha for the last seven years, I have had a passion to share and apply his teachings at rehabilitation centers, with the homeless, seniors, veterans, animals and children. For the last couple of years, I have been guided to put most of my attention on working with children, though I still do other types of service in my community.
Having volunteered at APEC Learning Center years earlier, I approached them about introducing the children to the Divine Soul Song Love, Peace and Harmony. APEC offers programs for infants and toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children during out of school times.
It is a tremendous honor to collaborate with APEC to share Love, Peace and Harmony with infants and children ranging in age from 6 weeks to 5 years. My purpose is to raise their frequency and consciousness through this song. We connect to the song through singing, meditation, tai chi movement, soul movement, Tao Calligraphy tracing, and more. We also learn about culture, science, ecology, animals, plants, and how to cultivate good behavior. Whatever the topic, love, peace and harmony is always our base. In fact, I believe I will never run out of ideas on how to apply love, peace and harmony with any subject.
I have also been able to teach approximately one hundred APEC teachers about the power, significance and meaning of Love, Peace and Harmony, and how to apply it with the children and in their own lives. I will be doing more outreach in afterschool programs at Elementary and Middle Schools in Atlanta. However, this preschool has been a flagship for such simple and profound teachings that can be quite advanced at times, but Love, Peace and Harmony is always serving in any way that it is needed.
My heart and soul is so happy to share the Divine Soul Song Love, Peace and Harmony and Master Sha’s teachings to our children to help make a brighter future for us all.
I was very honored and grateful to receive a heart-touching testimonial letter from the Director of APEC, whose organization serves several hundreds of children and their families in the Atlanta area. To read the full letter, simply click the image below or click here.
We started by playing Love, Peace and Harmony during nap and homework time and expanded to playing softly during most of the day. The effect on our children was immediate and parents began to linger longer at pick up time. Our staff began to work better as a team.Angie Dutch
We have incorporated love, peace and harmony in our company philosophy and use it in disciplinary procedures and for de-escalating irate parents. Love, peace and harmony is now part of all new staff orientation and has been added to all best practices for staff training.Angie Dutch
