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.
