Does your child have trouble slowing down and focusing in the face of endless stimulation, entertainment, and distraction? Does your child face challenges in school? Would you like to help your child foster calmness, self-control, and regulation of their emotions and behavior?
Mindfulness practices have brought proven benefits to children and parents alike. Our “Back to School” Mindfulness workshop provides tools to you and your child so that your child can thrive at school and at home.
