Uberlândia - Minas Gerais
We conducted two new seminars in Uberlândia, the first on June 15 and December 16, 1997, in the auditorium of SESI, for MEI Module (Early Childhood Education) and Educational Daycare Teacher Edna Aparecida de Oliveira, and the second on 17 and 18, in the auditorium of the Faculty of Medicine of the UFU to 5 local schools.
The opening was performed by Professor ELOAH MARISA DE Menezes, director of CEMEPE - Municipal Center for Educational Studies and Projects.
Was an original seminar. It is known that the Sathya Sai Education Program in Human Values is basically applied to children as young as seven years old.
In Brazil, however, is the responsibility of municipalities, according to the Law of Guidelines and Bases of Education, meet children aged 0-3 years in kindergartens, and 4-6 years in pre-schools called Education child.
Because of this, we conducted a unique workshop focused solely on understanding by teachers, their role in shaping the personality of children that level.
We often hear teachers complaining about how parents raise their children, attributing much of the inappropriate behavior of the child to family problems.
The seminar sought to show that, despite all kinds of difficulties that the child may find in the home, the teacher can, especially with your example, passing the values involving human affection (affection, tenderness, sweetness, lovingness, sympathy, attention with each other) and they are expressed by the physical action, such as personal hygiene, respect, love for parents, discipline, gratitude, etc.
Only the technique of sitting in silence was applied to teachers, aiming to get them to experience the universal love. We give what we have inside of us, so the experience for the teacher to be trained to pass the disinterested love for his class is required.
There was already a project underway at the MEI, authored the teachers Denise and Irene, who seeks to pass the Human Values observing the level of learning of every age. Below reprinted the letter we received from teachers and Denise Irene, passing in the commitment of the leadership, faculty and all staff in the MEI training of children:
"Module Childhood Education.
Hon. Mr. Goncalo,

A SPECIAL TIME is a specialized lesson lasting 40 minutes in each room, with the participation of Regents classes of teachers, with the aim of permeating the concepts developed in their school classes.
We performed a review of the first half with the teachers and had a good result, which reported that students improved their socialization toward each other in the conduct in the classroom and at home with his family.
We know that God has done wonders in the life of the whole school, because He has given us wisdom and discernment to provide these small creatures living of values aimed for Peace, Love, Non-Violence, Justice and Truth. With so hopefully when they are 'big' will face a very different life, with better security, respect and dignity manner.

The teacher ELOAH MARISA DE Menezes, director of CEMEPE - Municipal Center for Educational Studies and Projects, gave the welcome teachers from the five schools that participated in the second workshop, held on 17 and 18 December, at the auditorium of the Faculty of Medicine UFU - Federal University of Uberlândia.
The initiative to participate in this seminar was the direction of each school, and so we believe that each is an example of the application of Sathya Sai Education in Human Values, encouraging other schools to follow suit.
In this seminar, unlike the first, the philosophical underpinnings of the program Sathya Sai Education in Human Values, and their application techniques were thoroughly presented to the participating teachers.
The technique of sitting in silence was applied four times. Initially seek to raise the awareness of teachers to such a level that they could experience the peace and enjoyment of the true state of tranquility. Has emphasized the experience of universal love, the contemplation and enjoyment of light emanating from the divine spark that exists in the heart of every human being in the next two experiments.
The last experience to be lived by teachers was a joy. The question posed to the audience was: what color of joy? Where the energy of joy is located? Joy depends on external conditions, or it results from a state of inner spirit?
It was a joy to see that most participants were able to feel true joy, and tell their color.
We wait could visit each of the schools in the near future and see the Sathya Sai Education in Human Values applied in each classroom.
The seminars brought together 227 participants.
