Event Details

Mindfulness is described as an intentional awareness of our thoughts and feelings, which then lead to our actions.  Life can be uncertain with all we are responsible for, including personal, professional, social/emotional, financial, and family.  Practicing mindfulness allows us to focus and live in the present, instead of dwelling on the past or becoming anxious about our future. 

This mindfulness workshop is designed for children ages 8-12 as an introduction to this form of calming relaxation.  It is run by WCSD school psychologist Jessica Corcoran.  Participants will start and end the workshop with a short guided meditation.  Other activities include learning some of the fundamentals of the practice of mindfulness, making relaxation calming tools, learning easy and basic stretches and chair yoga, specialized relaxation coloring, books about mindfulness, making vision boards, learning about positive affirmations, breathing techniques, gratefulness exercises, self-care skills, journal writing, and more.  Individuals will take home a journal filled with strategies, activities, games, and information on how to implement mindful strategies into daily life.  Participants will be provided with a journal, writing utensil, and all activity materials.  Opportunities for additional workshops may be provided to expand on skills.
