Breathe In & Shine: Mindfulness for Children and Families
Are you interested in bringing some stillness into your busy family life?
In this introductory program, Sara will teach child-friendly mindfulness practices to children and their families that they can then practice together at home. Practices include games, songs, stories, art activities and everyday mindful awareness practices. Mindfulness can help to reduce stress, provide tools for responding to strong feelings such as anxiety, anger, worry & frustration as well as to support connection in todays often-hectic households. (In 2 parent families, either 1 or both parents can attend).
