moxie DaDA merges mindfulness and creative play in its MINDFUL PLAY course tailored to children ages 6-12 years of age. In this 8 week course, participants will begin a mindfulness practice and engage their minds as tools to develop creativity, self awareness and an understanding that different perspectives are healthy. WHEN CHILDREN PLAY, THEY ARE PRACTICING life skills and modeling behavior which holds them accountable to their own personal integrity. IN THIS MINDFULNESS PROGRAM, CHILDREN LEARN how STILLNESS of the mind can calm and prepare them to take flight into uncharted territory. They will replace fear and anxiety with strength and courage. With these SPECIAL creative living techniques, children will DEVELOP a mindful practice which provides BALANCE AND PEACE OF MIND. This 8 week course is offered to schools, after school programs, recreational centers, libraries, parks, hospitals and more.
Through a 3 hour professional development workshop, educators explore what mindfulness is and gain strategies to incorporate mindfulness into the classroom environment. Mindfulness has proven to calm and integrate compassionate yet diverse individuals into more attentive and successful learners.
Together we will explore the classroom climate and how it may be blocking an individual's ability to be successful in the classroom and in life. Educators will discover useful tools to manage diverse and sometimes difficult energies.
An example of classroom tool kit will be available to look through, and includes ideas for worksheets and calming strategies and list of resources will be provided for each participant.
