Mindfulness, as defined by Jon Kabat-Zinn, is

"the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment."

Discover and encourage the profound impact that mindfulness can have on your child. Children grades K-5 are invited to participate in this children's mindfulness workshop.

Mindfulness has been proven to help children with:

  • Regulating their emotions
  • Dealing with difficult situations
  • Improving social and emotional skills

Facilitated by Elise Kindya, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and children's mindset coach, this workshop will help your child (and you if you choose to participate) utilize mindfulness quickly and in fun ways.

Admission is $10 per child -- parent participation is welcome but not necessary!
