Description:
Parental Mindfulness Series with Christine Lustik, PhD. & Amy Friedman: Introduction to Mindful Family Practices
The ability to be in the moment as a family, taking in the pleasant, unpleasant, and neutral moments without wishing you were somewhere else is a gift. It can allow us to find the little joys in each day and not pass them by as we focus on schedules and expectations. We invite parents and children to come together for this 3-hour session. There will be times when parents and children are learning and practicing together– learning Mindfulness tools they can use as a family during stressful moments. And, there will be times when parents and children are in their own groups– learning age appropriate tools that can support them as individuals during challenging family moments. Amy Friedman has been an educator for over 20 years. She has taught art, drama, experiential education, yoga, dance, and social and emotional learning. Amy currently works with kids and teachers to explore the seeds of Mindfulness while working as a middle school counselor. Amy is also a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, certified yoga teacher and certified children’s yoga teacher. She is a Mindfulness facilitator for Be Here Now Sangha, co-leads the family Mindfulness retreats through Open Way, and is a certified Positive Discipline Parent and Classroom Educator. Amy is passionate about helping both kids and adults learn to plant healthy seeds and water them daily. Workshop is held in the Large Meeting Room. 10:00 AM-1:00 PM
