Session 1:  Children Massaging Children (CMC)

Children Massaging (Children CMC) program is an example of an effective Peer Massage process which works in Europe and New Zealand for 20 years now.   Designed for education systems teaches peace and empathy in the simplest and very effective way. CMC prevents aggression and bullying in the classroom. During the Festival all participants (parents, and children) will play with each other in pairs using CMC techniques. This 45 minutes session can take longer as children often asks for repetition of certain techniques.
