What Does It Mean to Embody Mindfulness and Why Does It Matter?
An online workshop in collaboration with Mindful Schools
Sunday, February 24, 10:00am - 11:15am PST
If you are working with youth, it’s likely that you are motivated by love. You want the young people that you spend time with to have tools to live happier and more easeful lives. We are deeply conditioned to believe that employing such tools in our own lives is selfish, takes too much time, that we are undeserving of compassionate attention, etc.
In this workshop, we’ll explore the ways in which those myths are not only false, they don’t serve anyone. We’ll also touch on the beauty of how effective tools become when they are offered by someone who embodies Mindfulness.
