Roles

When you consciously play a role for somebody, you also offer them a chance to see what the role is about, and why it is played.

Newsletter March 2016

Welcome to our newsletter of the first month of spring.

Spring is the time when the new plants are awakening from their winter sleep and start to grow, and as humans we often feel the same: There is more light, more energy and the new ideas can begin to manifest.

One of our new ideas is to make a short YouTube intro about our teachings. Because the best way to explain what goes on in energy stealing is actually to show it! We will of course post a link on the site when it's ready.

We would like to share an experience from one of the schools: We show a very common situation, where kids are playing ball. One kid is going to take the bat to hit the ball and another jumps in and get the bat first. Then follows the argument, "It's my turn!" "Well, now I have got it!" - It continues, ending with the one with the bat waves the other off, "Go to the back of the line! I am going to hit the ball now!" The other walks away, shouting angrily, "I am never going to play with you again!"

We have then asked the kids, "How did that feel? Was it okay? And who is steeling energy from whom?"

The response from the kids was in general,"That was not nice to watch! It did not feel good! And surely it was not okay just to take the bat!" They also agreed that the one taking the bat from the other one was steeling energy in that way.

Then we asked, "What could the one being bullied do differently?"

We have done this role-play in several classes and mostly the first answer will be something like,"Take the bat and hit the other with it!" Or something similar. Other suggestions: Ask an adult for help! Tell the bully, "This time you may do it, but next time you have to go to the back of the line."

In one class a girl said, "Instead of arguing you should stand calmly and ask the bully to give you the bat, because that is not okay!" - In the other classes we had to ask leading questions before the kids came up with a similar suggestion.

We played that new version with "the victim" centered and calmly asking for the bat, and the bully finally handing it over. The kids could clearly feel and see the difference.

The important point is that you don't wait for the bully to stop being a bully. But YOU stop being a victim! That changes the whole story.
