4 TOOLS of GENTLE TEACHING
Through the use of our four tools, educators and caregivers are taught that they themselves are instruments of peace, bringing messages of non-violence, forgiveness, empathy and total acceptance.

Our tools are instruments to connect and build relationships with those around us.
