Astro Analysis- preparation of an individual program

In the context of the uniqueness and innovative approach to revealing and improving the specific qualities of each child is the programme mentioned above. For its preparation it is necessary to complete a child reception form. After submitting a completed and signed form to the center, an analysis is made, which reveals its specific characteristics and personality. Based on the analysis, an individual programme of the child is developed to improve his/her talents and individual abilities through the services provided by the center such as sport, music, singing, yoga, dancing and art workshops. You will get the appropriate individual program that we offer for visiting ANGEL STEPS, as well as a mini Astro analysis of your child.
The analysis is made by a special astrological method, which is developed by the Astro-psychologist of our center. In order to achieve greater impact in understanding the analysis and the concrete steps for development of the child, it is advisable to consult the parent (s) with our astro-psychologist.
The consultation is designed to help parents and children, children and teachers – to know each other – to become familiar in a different way with your uniqueness:
-What are your specific qualities and skills?
-What makes you happy and what can make you feel supported and loved?
How do you perceive external incentives and what is your reaction to the environment and the people you communicate with every day?
– What is your way of thinking and speaking?
– How do you express your love and your anger?
To make this method a real success we also need you – parents! Without you our wonderful idea and its application cannot have a complete look. It is important each of us to be happy, calm, and satisfied with our life in each aspect. Happy parents are a guarantee for healthy, peaceful and happy children.
Consultation with a parent takes the form of a calm conversation about you and what matters to you. Meaningful conversation; Listening; Another point of view of a topic or a problem – no matter what it concerns; a specific guideline or recommendation; information for your child and for yourself, of course. There are no templates and rules in our communication – it all depends on your attitude, the need, and the theme that you are interested in.
This is a special improvement method developed individually for each child, taking into account his personal potential, talent and skills, but an essential role also have the parents without which the result would not be possible. The method is a bridge between parents and children. The teacher, the natural authority, is the mediator between the child and the life, the child and the parents. That is why children must believe in it. This happens quite naturally, because the children here are treated with loving, understanding and warm personal attitude. It takes time and patience to achieve this trust.Therefore, the program should be carried out at least twice a week, as minimum visits and at least 3-4 weeks in order to understand the results of its implementation.

Mandala therapy – a lifecycle and a lot more

Creating an own mandala is in itself a personal and healing process that helps to center the body and mind. In this way we enter ourselves and gradually awaken our senses in order to achieve the balance of soul that is set in each of us. Mandala therapy can also be used as one of many techniques of meditation.
The results of entering a meditative state on a purely biological level are very indicative of its benefits:
– Strengthens the immune system
– reduces stress
– overcomes depressive states
– significantly reduces the pains in the body
– lowers blood pressure
– stimulates the production of melatonin – a hormone that is considered to slow down cell aging and help for relaxed sleep

The course does not require any additional preparation. It allows one to express his creative side, which many people ignore in their everyday lives and their lives as a whole. The personal mandala is the microcosms, the inner universe of the person who creates it.
It is a kind of artistic experience to bring together the different aspects of human nature to awaken the intuition and to discover the problem or the focus, where more work is required. What the mandalas are, why they are round in shape, what they symbolize in different cultures, the mandala as a gift, the technique of meditation, can they be read and understood … these and many more questions and answers will emerge even during the first visit.
If the practice of working with mandalas becomes regular, one will realize their impact on their character as well. It begins to master and transform tensions from stressful situations.It significantly improves focus and concentration. He becomes more purposeful. He starts increasingly being more aware of his intuition. Mandala therapy cultivates a sense of natural joy, contentment and tranquility. It develops dexterity, precision and aesthetic flair for shape, color, balance and beauty.
