I want to let you know about a wonderful opportunity that is happening in Brooklyn on Veteran’s Day. It’s a one day intensive in mindfulness for preschool and kindergarten teachers. It’s hard to describe in a just a few sentences how incredible mindfulness work is, for the person who’s learning it and for the children who learn to use the tools. I WISH I had known about this work when I was teaching preschoolers (and older children too!). I am positive it would’ve helped me cope with stress better, and I would’ve been able to help my children learn self-regulation and empathy skills (among other things) in a more concrete and fun way than what I did (a LOT of talking!).
The information about the day and registration link is here
I will be co-facilitating with one of the people who first introduced me to this program 18 months ago and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach more people about Mindful Life for Kids. After I did the teacher intensive training, I went and did the next level of training, where I learned to train teachers. I use many of these tools in my daily life and as a parent.
So, if you are free and interested, come join us on Veteran’s Day. You will feel like you had a vacation in your mind. It’s the best way I can describe it. Although the training isn’t free, the tools you learn to use all exist within your own brain. Sound powerful? It is. Come see for yourself.
