A Fun, Pragmatic Approach to Mindfulness
Susan Kaiser Greenland
While mindfulness has become a buzzword in clinics, schools, and boardrooms, many people have a hard time incorporating it into their lives. Fortunately, you can make mindfulness more accessible by using games—simple enough to share with children—to coach clients in the themes, methods, and life skills that fuel this powerful practice. In this workshop, you’ll explore:
- Six social, emotional, and academic life skills that mindfulness can develop: quieting, focusing, seeing, reframing, caring, and connecting
- Five introspective methods—anchor practices, awareness practices, body scans, analytical practices, and visualization—that develop these crucial social, emotional, and academic life skills
- Mindful games that help kids and caregivers alike develop greater mind-body awareness, cultivate caring, connected relationships, and reduce stress
