Bringing Mindfulness to Children is a daylong for teachers, parents, therapists, and others interested in brining mindfulness- based practices to children. We will explore fun and easy mindfulness practices that can be shared with youth of all ages to help them develop embodied awareness, emotional intelligence, curiosity and focus, compassion and empathy, and trust in their own inner wisdom. Pre-registration is requested. To register or get additional information contact Liz Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org
