Workshop: Meditation for parents and kids – November
Places limited, early booking advised.
We all want happiness and health for our children. In a world of sensory overload with life, school, family and internal pressures, children need a way of slowing down and finding calm just as much as adults.
As well as helping them develop focus, regulate their emotions and learn how to pay attention inside and out, meditation can be a life-long resource that can help them overcome and even prevent many problems. It is also a great way of showing kids that it’s possible to direct their attention to one thing at a time and that it feels good not to be distracted!
This morning workshop will introduce parents and children to 5 different meditation practices they can use together at home to slow down and bring calm and focus. Many studies suggest that kids who practice mindfulness tend to develop positive traits such as increased self-control, better attentiveness, improved self-esteem, and more empathy and respect for others. In addition, it may help them manage and overcome challenging conditions such as stress, depression, and hyperactivity.
The session will be lead by Calodagh McCumiskey. Price is for one adult and one child.
