Mindfulness for Children

from 0.00

This class is for second, third and fourth graders, learning how to be present, how to focus on this moment, and how to take this practice home, to continue practicing on their own.
We will explore:

  • Mindful listening

  • Mindful breathing

  • Mindful seeing

  • Mindful movement

  • Mindful eating

  • Mindfulness of thoughts

  • Mindfulness of emotions

  • Heartfulness: cultivating positive states such as kindness, generosity and gratitude

We will also use Thich Nhat Hanh’s “pebble practice”, a tangible way to continue our meditation practice using four pebbles representing different images in nature..
