The best way to create mindful and compassionate kids is by surrounding them with mindful and compassionate adults.
This online webinar is for parents, therapists, educators, and others looking for creative ways to practice themselves and share mindfulness with the kids in their lives.
Learning differences, cultural differences, developmental differences, not to mention settings like classrooms or offices all affect how we and our kids practice best.
Join guest lecturer Dr. Christopher Willard and you will learn:
- Fun ways to adapt mindfulness for your family’s life, rather than approach with a one-size fits all approach.
- Different practices that engage different learning styles through arts, sports, games, music, technology and more, for attention spans ranging from 30 seconds to 30 minutes.
- Basic science about the role of mindfulness, compassion, and self-compassion in attachment and attunement.
- How to get young people to not only buy in but how to nurture mindfulness in their daily lives.
We will also explore the importance of our own practice, starting or deepening our own mindful self-care and self-compassion as caregivers. We will also cover strategies for starting mindfulness programs in larger institutions such as schools and hospitals.
Purchase includes lifetime access to video content, downloadable pdf of slides, and bonus practices for you and your students.
