(Year 4, Week 31)

Peace

During the first week of the session heroes were presented with a new option to use the peace table to work out conflicts before resulting to taking a hero buck. One Tuesday, they all agreed that they loved the process. They loved being able to talk through their feelings and often times, they found much more grace for one another. What went from an upwards of 40 some disagreements during the week, that resulted in names being moved up the guardrails, it swiftly went down to 3!

Flow

Wednesday was such an intentional day. The heroes were prompted to write down their smart goals and start the week on a strong note. They all decided to eat their frogs and take on intense challenges. After they filled out their smart goals they raced off into core skills. Tuesdays flow was quiet, calm and all of the heroes kept working diligently.

Day of Magic

The two sheepdogs who stepped up to design their own Writer’s Workshop have been nailing their challenges and launches. Their launches are full of fun and their challenges are full of magic. On Thursday, the heroes took on an incredibly creative challenge where they were instructed to create their own Harry Potter wands.

Personal Maintenance

Friday is usually a more high energy day, however, that doesn’t mean that personal maintenance can fall by the wayside. A few of the sheepdogs in the studio earned enough points to have a movie party. It was very evident that with a few of the sheepdogs not around, personal maintenance fell by the wayside. The heroes did not get to participate in mindfulness and didn’t even start their Quest launch until almost thirty minutes past time. This sparked a much needed reflection. The reflection went as follows:

Wrap-Up

A big change this session is communication. The heroes decided that they want to continue with using the peace table and they feel that it has brought so much kindness and understanding to the studio. Wednesday was such an intentional day. There was more intentionality than possibly ever before. The heroes were prompted to write down their smart goals and start the week on a strong note. They all decided to eat their frogs and take on intense challenges. After they filled out their smart goals they raced off into core skills. Tuesdays flow was quiet, calm and all of the heroes kept working diligently.
