In the fall of 2014, Girard College requested Red Kite Project’s services to develop and instruct a somatic based healing program. The Red Kite Rising program delivered a series of trainings to Girard College’s middle school classes. The trainings focused on martial arts driven somatic therapy to help children with potentially disrupted life domains. Over a series of sessions, children were able to focus better, and exercise with the goal of improving relaxation and executive functioning. They were also taught basic conflict resolution skills and introduced to circle processes that gave a voice to those who had previously had few outlets.
