Start with the Heart

Start with the Heart is our introductory curriculum. It answers the question educators always ask during trainings: How do I get started sharing this work with my students? The lessons are designed for ease of delivery, and they weave Pure Edge Brain Breaks into foundational lessons from the original Pure Power curriculum.
