A Garden, a Harbor, a Holy Place: Scenes from Baby Animals (Dinosaurs) and Me! Toddler Class Los Angeles, CA

The twelve senses and their relation to the home are helpful to consider as we create homes for our children:  1. Touch--the experience of the skin meeting whatever is just beyond it--soft, hard, smooth or bumpy, the pleasure of a warm hug or the pain of falling down on a rock.  Touch gives us the experience of the boundaries of our bodies.

2. Life sense--the feeling of being well or of feeling ill, being hungry or full, in pain or contented.

3. Self-movement--gestures, walking or crawling, reaching and holding, the ability to be free in our movement and the realization of the limits of our movement.
