Mindfulness, Children, and Youth
Children enter this world with a natural curiosity about life and their surroundings. Mindfulness, which means to pay attention to life in the present moment, supports and strengthens this innate quality. Mindfulness is a portable tool children can learn to incorporate into their everyday lives as they face the many challenges and stressors of living in our fast-paced, multi-tasking world. Research has shown mindfulness supports academic learning as well as emotional resiliency and the ability to respond to life’s challenges with clarity and compassion. We are dedicated to growing our mindfulness programming to serve the children and youth of our community. We currently offer several ways to introduce children, youth, and adults to the practice of mindfulness meditation in education and at home.
