Join us in the beautiful Japanese Garden as the Grand Rapids Center for Mindfulness youth teachers lead an introductory family workshop, open to all who are interested in learning a little bit about the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness can be a useful skill to help bring more clarity and calm into our lives. Come and explore mindfulness outside at Meijer Gardens! The workshop will include a variety of mindfulness activities including a mindful nature walk and outdoor tai chi exercises. We will finish with a fall art activity to take home at the end of class.
During our 1 1/2 hour event participants will (learn) practice:
- Mindful Listening
- Mindful Breathing
- Mindful Movement – in the gardens!!
- Family Activity
No experience necessary! We hope you will join us for an inquiry into the present moment with kindness and curiosity.
