Introduction, Session 10: Joy in Nature: Animal Play

In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program

The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful. — e.e. cummings, 20th-century American poet (Unitarian)

Playing helps animals (including humans) learn and practice skills, develop social bonds, and relieve stress. Participants experience the joy of play in a session that demonstrates the well-being that results from maintaining a spiritual orientation of joy. The Faith in Action activity extends this learning by introducing the importance of animal enrichment. Participants are empowered to take action by donating toys they have made to a local animal welfare organization.
