This workshop offers a life-changing opportunity for parents and professionals who work with children. Mindfulness and meditation develop six essential life skills that children need: quieting, focusing, seeing, reframing, caring, and connecting. Come learn how to engage children in developing these skills—while having fun!
Susan Kaiser Greenland’s mindful games helps children better regulate their emotions and respond to any situation calmly, with kindness and compassion. Highly experiential, this workshop includes demonstrations of lessons, practice periods, teaching techniques, and group facilitation. There will also be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and meet like-minded parents and professionals.
Through lively discussion and experiential activities you will learn:
Mindful games encourage greater mind-body awareness, enhance compassionate life skills, and help with stress management. What you will learn in this workshop can easily be adapted for home, afterschool programs, or private therapy and health-care practices.
