Practicing Mindfulness With Children

Tue. Apr 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

- $10

Kennebec Montessori School is hosting a workshop presented by Erica Marcus of Wise Minds.Big Hearts. Erica will provide an overview of practicing Mindfulness with Children. First, it will give an introduction to mindfulness: what it is, what the research says about its benefits, and some of the neuroscience that informs the practice. Second, we will touch on how mindfulness can be used by parents to manage their own stress and support building a strong connection with their kids. Third, we will cover some basic mindfulness techniques that can be taught to students. Finally, the program will be infused with guided mindfulness exercises — of sound, breath, and body — so adults can experience the practice firsthand.
This workshop is a good jumping off point for parents and caregivers to further explore their own practice and connect with resources that will help them bring mindfulness to their children.
