Minders of Mindfulness
Mindfulness is innate and exquisitely abundant at birth and I believe it is up to us to teach the next generation how to keep their innate skill of being mindful throughout their life. This workshop enlivens, inspires and invigorates those that attend. They will learn the science behind mindfulness, practical exercises and take away many fun mindfulness activities back to the children they work with.
- what is mindfulness?
- the scientific effects the thoughts have on DNA and the receptive outcomes that flow from this
- research on mindfulness
- self-regulation of thoughts
- exercises to share with children so they have a place to go to wihtin themselves that helps them deal with new emotions
