MindfulKids

Mindfulness classes for Child and Parent or Tweens and Teens.

Children emulate what they see, hear, touch. The greatest gift we can give ourselves and our children is the ability to live sensational lives, to communicate without fear of reprisal, to acknowledge all of our senses and to live free of the reactive stress impulses we have become so accustomed to experience. This course series provides a way parents can help to promote tools for low-stress and more balanced emotional responses in their children.

In this 8 week session we explore stress reduction & life strategies for a healthier and more balanced life.  Instead of finding ourselves at the mercy of worry, fear, and anger , we grow in our ability to choose how we want to act in situations, often in ways that might have been out of our reach before.

MindfulKids – A Program of Stress Reduction & Life Strategies for children

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness, when applied appropriately, includes the qualities of

  • awareness (paying attention to one’s experience through the senses and the mind);
  • of non-judgment (not labeling things “good” or “bad” but rather observing with a neutral attitude);
  • and of stillness in heart and mind (though the body may be moving).

Mission Statement

Fostering healthy living practices in children while providing the Parent/Caregiver the support and the tools needed to nurture calmer, cooperative, compassionate families for a happy, healthy balanced life.

Goals

The focus of this initiative is to provide a relaxed atmosphere where mindfulness skills are presented and practiced together; where parent and child can share a common “holistic language”, a common understanding and can build together in fostering a healthy balanced lifestyle.

We seek to teach and develop tools to affect

  • Confidence building
  • Stress response
  • Assimilation of mindful living practices into daily life
  • How we validate emotions in ourselves and in others
  • How we recognize and diffuse triggers
  • Positive communication skills
  • How we view ourselves and others
