Mindful Awareness for Children and Their Parents:In this four week course children and their parents are taught the basic practices of mindful awareness. The focus of this class is to develop an awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and awareness of the things that are around us and happening in the moment. An emerging body of research has indicated that mindfulness can help children to calm, improve their attention, improve personal emotional awareness, and help them to make better decisions. Research also indicates these same outcomes with adults. In this course, children and their parents can learn together how to develop, easy to learn, daily practices to increase wellness for all members of the family.
