$100 per child, for five weeks. Included in the price is Whitney Stewart’s Mindful Me Activity Book, for use in class and at home.
Sometimes kids’ lives can get busy and out of control, and worries can take over. When that happens, knowing how to pause and regain composure with mindfulness can help! This class introduces kids (ages 9 – 12) to mindfulness as a way to find clarity, manage stress, handle difficult emotions, and navigate personal challenges. With breathing, relaxation, and guided meditation exercises, kids will have an entire toolkit at their disposal. Kids will learn to settle their thoughts and look inward through a series of fun writing prompts, games, and meditation exercises.
Whitney Stewart will travel far for a story. She’s trekked in the Himalaya with Sir Edmund Hillary and visited remote Buddhist monasteries in Nepal, Tibet, Myanmar, and Japan. She’s interviewed the Dalai Lama, sat for days in meditation retreats, and even been a puppeteer in France. She is the author of multiple children’s books, and when she is not writing or traveling, she teaches mindfulness and meditation to children.
