About

When Voyager reached the edge of the solar system, NASA asked it to snap a photo of earth. Out of the thousands of pixels, the earth, hidden in the middle of the frame, suspended in a sunbeam reflection, took up 0.12 pixels: a pale blue dot in the vast expanse of space. Yet, on this pale blue dot -- our pale blue dot -- life is lived, stories told and untold, music sung, and art is made.

Throughout human history, the human experience has always been shared through story telling. It is an ancient tradition in all cultures all around the earth and those stories told, untold, written, painted, drawn and sung are the Earth memory, and one could explain to an alien who we are as humans through story-telling. 

Stories are at the root of what it is to be human. Our lives are shaped by the stories we hear and tell. Stories enable us to see beyond our personal perspective. Stories and characters free us because they allow us to look critically at the situations we found ourselves in and because they challenge us to do and try better. 

in fact, life itself is an ever unfolding story. How beautiful to be here to co-create life on our blue pale dot! It is truly the greatest stories ever told! Life is really blue like the ocean. The waves and the tides will never stop but we can teach our kids how to swim and how to surf the waves! These stories and the tools provided in each of them are precious keys that can change the world 

So let's inspire and empower the children of the earth with empowering Stories. One kid at a time. So that they become the change we want to see in the world.

"Dear Little Human...: messages of love and wisdom from Sophia the talking tree" is a children's book reinventing story-telling through 22 inspiring stories to empower children while giving parents and caregivers words and tools to support them. In this first opus, Sophia The Talking tree and her 22 friends address topics such as differences, self-confidence, happiness, bullying, slow-learning, self-esteem, ADHD, body image, hygiene, nutrition, friendships and much more.  

For example, “I follow my dreams” Ingrid is a swan ostrich who dreams of becoming a prima ballerina at the Opera of Paris. Her story talks about believing in one-self, dreaming big and daring! 

I “love myself no matter what” Bob is a tiger who dreams to be a fairy princess, not usual for a tiger so this story talks about loving acceptance, about gender bias, about daring to be your true-self and questions our definition of normality.

Sophia is an ancient and wise tree coming from the land of origins, Africa. She was a Palaver tree. Palaver trees are majestic, huge baobab trees, around which people gather and discuss in Africa. These discussions often transform into a platform for performances and storytelling sessions. In fact, one can say that human life is regulated under Palaver trees: celebrations such as weddings, harvests, births, puberty ceremonies, news on education and also moments of grief such as the crossing over of someone, ailments, etc. The Palaver Tree truly embodies a circle of support, where all are equals, the elders and the youth, the poor and the rich – as a community where we listen and we are listened to, where we hold space for each other, express our inner voices, share, heal and manifest abundant lives, dreams, and visions. 

Sophia was an old, big and wise tree. As a Palaver tree, Sophia had heard so many stories from so many different beings that she now knew how to talk. Not only did she know how to listen patiently and lovingly to grown-ups, children, animals, plants, flowers, rocks, crystals, but Sophia was really the best storyteller you'd ever hear. 

Like the Mother Nature, she is part of, she embodies wisdom and knowledge, right and free thinking, love, and caution. Sophia tells stories of love, wisdom, and empowerment. She teaches humans how to love themselves, how to have self-worth and self-confidence.

Her messages are practical, positive and solution focused. They are important truths grown-ups wish their younger-selves knew, important truths Mother Earth wishes all the earthlings to know about.  

 

My name is Leantara Shah.  I am a teacher, healer, writer, artist and a Mindfulness & empowerment Life Coach empowering children and healing inner child.   I am the founder of the EmpowerME Project. I have helped countless people reconnect with their inner child and the truth of who they are. French of Senegalese descent, born in Germany, I have been living in Asia for almost 10 years now. I live in Singapore and call myself a citizen of the world. I dedicate my time to heal the collective Inner Child and to empower children. I am the creator of the Car Lite Therapy™ Online Course, a mindfulness system designed to rewire your brain and to live beyond the dictates of outdated limited beliefs built up during your childhood. Check it here.  I do believe as coined by John Bradshaw that this neglected wounded, inner child of the past is the major source of human misery. Some people know me as Leantara Shah, my pen name. Some as Fana Gueye...my birth name. Well, they are just two aspects of the same person and of the same purpose.  I love kids and I am the mother of Eve, a 5-year old bubbly rainbow child and she is my greatest inspiration and my bundle of Joy. I have interacted & worked with children in a variety of settings. You can find me online at www.leantarashah.com  

 

Well, healing Inner Child is one thing and it is needed but the best is to raise empowered Children who won't need healing in the future as it is easier to "build up a child than to repair an adult". This hit me after many years of healing and coaching practice and countless sessions with clients, always leading me back at some point to childhood and to a wounded inner child.  I was also concerned about creating tools to raise empowered children, being myself the mother of a 5-year-old. Creating effective tools to empower children became very important as I truly believe that it is key to teach children to empower themselves and not trade their authenticity for validation.

Our children are sponges and from their birth to the age of 6, an amazing amount of learning takes place and parents are the very first teachers of their children. Kids ' brain are like little computers, they hear, listen, store, file information in their hard-drive (subconscious mind) as it is fed to them.

These things are like hidden programs, running in the background and they are the cause of all limiting beliefs we have as adults and they are fed by our thoughts, our feelings, and our actions. So imagine how much of negative programs, one could have stored without him or her knowledge by the age of 13?

So, it is crucial and paramount to wonder how much happier, resilient and empowered a child could be if the daily feed was purposely empowering and inspiring? What if the children could be given effective tools to:

- manage worries and reduce anxiety

- learn to make a discerning choice and conscious choices

- manage hardship, problems and tackle challenges successfully

- build up resilience

- keep a fun and playful spirit 

The content of the book has been created to be a valuable and precious FEED meant to overrun obsolete and negative programming. 

Content, on its own, remains as information. Content, with pedagogy can be converted to knowledge. So you can be sure that a beautiful production coupled with tons of love make this a book to keep, treasure and read again. The language is simple and very straight forward with repetitive messages and rooted in mindfulness, positive psychology, loving acceptance and resilience.

Each story is 3 -page story and they are so far 22 characters in this first volume (3 more volumes to come with a total of 88 characters)

- The first page is built as a poster describing the core message conveyed by the character and showing the illustration of the character

- The second page built to go deeper in the discovery of the whereabouts of the character

- The third page built as a reflection, role playing or visualization page, where kids and parents are prompted to chat about the lessons brought by the character. There is space for the child to write or doodle as it is often cathartic and releasing to get things on paper. The other important purpose of this third page is to engage into an interactive dialogue between the parents/ teachers and the children, where caregivers also share their feelings and their problems.

Kids can also draw or stick their photo at the beginning of the book and the end pages are a call to spread more love: Awesome stickers featuring the 22 awesome characters to share with their friends.

The book pedagogy and how the stories are written also harness the power of proprietary coaching tool developed by Leantara Shah and called the 5-step tree. All the teachings are The intent behind this is to create a workbook or lesson-plan targeted at professional caregivers such as teachers or educators that eventually will allow the integration of Sophia the Talking tree stories in a full educational curriculum.

“Most importantly, it is our clear objective to partner with educators to develop a system of best practices for integrating story-telling into their curriculum. We want to get the powerful story-telling into schools and get schools into story-telling. This is a storytelling revolution and we're just getting started! How we nurture and guide our children today, shapes humanity of the future! 

The booklet and lesson-plan feature a simple proprietary Methodology called THE 5-STEP TREE. This methodology, which can be applied to each story and is very simple, grounded, user-friendly, and extremely empowering and is backed up by neuroscience, mindfulness techniques, positive psychology and S.E.L. (Social Emotional learning). S.E.L. is very important because academic leaning combined with elements of social and emotional learning allows children to balance their intelligence with emotional intelligence and their academic skills with social skills. The five key domain of social and emotional learning (SEL) are Self- awareness, Social awareness, Self-management, Responsible Decision Making and Relationship-management.

The 5-STEP TREE Methodology provides children with insights on loving acceptance, resilience, confidence, self-efficacy, respect, self-regulation and emotional intelligence. It opens a conversation and gives parents, teachers, and educators effective and original tips, strategies, and suggestions. It is not, of course, a replacement for professional help but it can really encourage children to be more accepting, to manage themselves any small issue they might have from time to time and to develop the habit to switch focus from problems to possibilities/opportunities. It is a great tool to develop the meaning-making process learning.

Some of the characters came up from the need to write a story about a specific topic and when the case, the character appears with his own specific shape and name. Sometimes, I draw random characters and only after, do I know what he or she is going to talk about. I must say, that it has been one of the most exciting aspects of this project.   I am working on the stories but also on the illustrations and it has been an amazing journey of healing for me. Drawing and creating these characters has been very healing for my inner teenager (who was forced back then, to give up on art studies to study something more suitable for my future and more aligned with my good grades).  So far, the only remaining part left to complete is the coloring.

It has really been so exciting to create this book and these characters and I am so psyched about releasing them to the world. I have read some of the stories to family, to my daughter, to friends and it is just amazing how people wish to share the book and get it for friends and relatives. When it happens, they just make my day because I created the book for that, to create a revolution, to make it viral and get it into the hands of as many children as possible. 

 

1. It is an essential reading for all girls and boys; colored or not, fat or thin, special need or not. Children who read this book are guaranteed to learn how to make discerning and conscious choices, how to manage worries & hardships and reduce anxiety, to build up resilience, practice compassion, self-love and loving acceptance. 

2. This book is for children of all ages and will resonate with children, teenagers and adults as the stories told by Sophia are truly universal. 

3. The messages passed on by Sophia the talking tree challenge the way we traditionally tend to label ourselves and our children and thus, are the ultimate antidotes to fear and powerlessness

4. The book is built to encourage interactivity and dialogue as the kids are prompted to play, think, draw, doodle in the book and to question. The stories are conversations engaging the child. It frees their voices and enables a dialogue even with kids that are not so talkative. They are allowed to interject their own interpretations and they have full license to write and doodle in the book.  It is also a beautiful way to introduce mindfulness to your children. 

5. It gives parents and Teachers effective tools and words to address topics, sometimes complicated such ADHD, gender bias, difference, or bullying in a very structured way with the proprietary 5-step tree pedagogy that can be applied and used through lesson- plan. We are advocates for the use of story-telling in the classroom and beyond to promote literacy and improve educational outcomes for all children. We intend to work with academics to cultivate groundbreaking research and use existing research into the proper role of story-telling in education. It is must-have first aid book for parents and educators and a wonderful resource to  assist children to realise their true potential and be happy.

6. It presents the wide variety and diversity of our planet earth and honors all beings, plants, animals, elements by giving them a voice. Sophia the talking tree comes from Africa so it holds Also the strong message of Unity and oneness and it is taught through each story. The Earth is important and we are with Nature and Mother Earth.

7. It uses modern technology and terminology with the hashtags in order to speak like the kids do these days… and to make it easier to spread the messages through the awesome stickers featuring the characters (meet "I am awesome " Nancy, meet " I follow my dreams " Ingrid …)

8. This book is the new African Story-telling and the creative potential of this transformational story-telling is infinite because Sophia the talking tree will have sequels and each character can have his or her own bedtime stories. Watch out for the bedtime stories featuring the characters introduced by Sophia in this first anthem.

- COLORING BOOK: Soul Doodles: Color me, Happy. Colouring and doodling are activities that a lot of people have enjoyed as a hobby during their childhood. After a particularly stressful or activity-filled day, coloring helps one to recover and find our balance. Perhaps that is why even adults are drawn to this activity in recent times - it helps to stimulate the body’s “relaxation response”. Besides being relaxing, it also helps us to explore our creative soul/aspect. The Mandalas in Soul Doodles™ are a symbolic representation of enduring high vibrational qualities. Qualities such as love, peace, harmony, bliss, connection, joy, abundance, awareness, happiness, and wisdom are reflected as a mandala - forms and qualities we can begin to embody, as we fill them with colors. These original, hand-drawn mandalas are perfect for contemplation and meditation. Soul Doodles™ is a co-creative process that is meditative, a tool for growth, and they will feed your soul as your “feed” the Mandalas with color.

We have our goal set for $33.3k which will allow us to print the first copies of the book but we are trying to raise much more to make this project at the highest quality level we can make it and the largest reach possible. I showed you the big picture as I am trying ideally to bring this tool to as many little and big humans as possible. The more we raise, the more people we can reach. The more children, we can empower and the more inner children we can heal. The more money we raise, the more people I can hire to work on this huge project.

Risks and challenges

Risks are very low. I have a lot of experience in creating material and online courses both in the digital and in the physical space. I have been running workshops and a life coaching practice for years and have a solid experience in project management, marketing and promotion and handling big launches. My reconversion followed a prolific corporate career in Sales, Marketing & Training in major FMCG companies such as Coca-Cola, Kellogg's, Master foods or Sony where I've managed and coached teams up to 27 people and have worked both agency and client side. I also have a solid experience as an entrepreneur.

But above all, the material is for most of it READY and you can check out samples of the finalized work for each reward. I’m very committed to making this all happen and working full time on this project so I already feel very privileged by all the support.
I am taking every precaution to deliver products from pledges in a timely manner, as well as partnering with established fulfillment houses to ensure all of our physical goods are delivered. BackerKit will handle all post campaign Surveys, as well as the Pre-Order store and Add-Ons!
I should be working with The time required to fulfill all pledges depends on several factors including the total number of pledges received. I aim to fulfill all pledges as quickly as possible.I will keep you posted, all the way, TILL WE REACH THE LAST STRETCH GOAL!!!!!!!
