Do you think it is important to encourage children and adolescents to recognize their emotions, to value friendship, affection and respect between people? Do you believe that one of the ways to do this is through the world of reading, playing and children's stories? It was because she believed in this idea that Maria Vilela George wrote her first children's story book - "The Loop that Became Embrace". A book that brings in a playful way, a look at emotions, about the relationship between people and the environment where they live.
Here, a little bit of what you will find on the pages full of colors and emotion:
Have you ever imagined a village where the inhabitants are tapes and spools of all kinds? A place where you can see the magic happen when hearts come together in an embrace? Where can children feel the greatness of values such as friendship, respect and the importance of empathy when interacting with people?
This is the proposal of the book "O Loop that turned to Hug".

The Book: “The Loop that became an Embrace”

Our story

Everything in life has a story. If we now look at the clothes, the accessories we are wearing, we can see that this statement is true! So here I want to tell you a little bit about how the Lumen Educacional Method was born, through the book

"The Loop that Became Hug".

Well, let's go to the story ...

In the early hours of January 7, 2019, the idea of writing a text in honor of a teacher came up. And that was how “O Renda que Virou Abraço” was born, a book written in honor of Professor Luciane Ribeiro Vilela. Lú, as she was called, was a public elementary school teacher in the city of Campinas, in São Paulo. She loved her students, she believed in the value of Education in people's lives, she cherished true friendship, she believed in the gifts of each one and she was in solidarity with those who suffered.

She said that children's storybooks were her work tools and that they helped her beyond literacy, they helped her to develop children's socio-emotional skills. His classes were always full of surprises, fun, and a lot of affection. Lu was at the height of his personal and professional life when at 38 he discovered he had leukemia and after 2 months he died. His work is remembered by colleagues, students and parents of students who recognize their true love for children and education.

We are a family owned and operated business.

After the book, I created two games, "Lumen Kids - Discovering Emotions" and "Rewriting Your History". After that, a lot happened and, finally, the Lumen Educational Method was born, which aims to help the small child and the inner child of each one of us to discover and reconnect with emotions.

This method consists of 3 pillars:

- Tales and Metaphors

- The Playful

- Self Expression

For schools, companies and institutions.

We are a family owned and operated business.

For Human Development professionals.

Each of these pillars are studied and worked on during the training of facilitators and multipliers of the Lumen Educational Method.

This game was created by the desire to see the child - small and the child that lives within us - experiencing emotions through play in a light way. Today's children live in a world of automation where everything is immediate. Parents want the best for their children and for that they go to great lengths to see their children happy. Many of them do their utmost to rid their children of their day-to-day frustrations. With this, many of the emotions are covered by material goods, by the punishment or annulment of what one feels. The child shows through his behavior what was given to him in excess or scarcity, such as, for example, time, attention, limit, valuation. So, I idealized this tool so that children can experience emotions, get to know the difference between acting and re-acting, develop empathy, self-esteem and feel safe to talk about your emotions through the memory game where they tell stories and interact with each other!
The Lumen Kids game is suitable for schools, companies, institutions, educators, parents and professionals focused on human development. Some of the benefits are:
• Engagement in learning: Learning becomes interesting by placing the playful in the context.
• Encourages positive behavior: game participants feel safe to discover and experience their emotions.
• It is a didactic and playful tool that addresses the emotional in a simple and safe way.
• This game improves the ability of people to get to know each other better and thus succeed in school, career and in life.

Lumen Kids - Discovering Emotions

When we board a plane, before taking off, safety instructions are given on how to act in the absence of oxygen in the cabin, where masks will automatically fall for the adult to put on himself first and then help the child or whoever is next to him. This metaphor led me to develop a tool so that people, when in contact with their life stories (conscious or unconscious), which serve as a barrier to their well-being, can re-signify them. Thus, in this workshop, tales, metaphors and life stories are permeated by playfulness, as a way to untie the “emotional knots”. Participants get involved in magic and allow themselves to be taken along this path of discovery. This tool can be used in the office by therapists, by professionals dedicated to personal and career development. Young people can also benefit from this tool since the game helps inter and intra relationships.
