Tai Chi with Diana Gillet and  students at Clark St. Learning Center.This interactive, experiential multimedia workshop on empowered learning is based on Susan Frey's book, The Road to Avalon II: Cultivating Spirituality in the Classroom. Integrating whole-brain multi-sensorial experience within enriched environments improves student behavior and attitudes, enhances well-being and enriches the classroom experience for teachers and students. An enriched environment helps teachers to work smarter, students to learn faster and supports the fullest realization of our learning potential. This workshop is approved for Professional Development Points for educators and designers and is presented as a half or full-day workshop. This program was presented at the popular Learning and the Brain conference; Using Brain Research to Leave No Child Behind in Boston, MA April 27, 2003.

School-based Wellness Programs
Avalon Health's work in schools has been featured in several international journals and magazines. These innovative programs are offered in schools as a holistic approach to the well-being of the person and place: the built environment, the person within the environment and the culture of the institution working together to optimize our inherent spiritual potential as human beings. This triune of environment-person-culture is addressed through three synergistic components: AVALON Associate  Michael  Eramo, LMT,  working on teacher at Clark St. Learning Center.

  1. Environmental Assessments: an investigation of lighting, air, ergonomics, sound, and aesthetics
  2. Comprehensive Health Education Programs: nutrition, stress management, posture, movement and fitness programs integrated into the student curriculum
  3. On-site Massage Therapy for stress management and postural health for faculty and staff.
