About this event

WHAT?

Mindfulness can benefit children of all ages. Practising paying attention to the present moment, with kindness and curiosity, can help them become more aware of their emotions, thoughts and bodily sensations. Mindfulness also helps to build important skills such as focus and self-control. With guidance and regular practice, children can learn to manage their emotions and tackle their challenges. Instead of reacting, they can learn to respond to their experiences with better choices.

The program introduces principles of mindfulness with an emphasis on attention training, emotion regulation and relating with others. It offers an opportunity for participants to know more about mindfulness and explore ways mindfulness might support them through the challenges they face. They will also learn some practices that could help them train their attention and calm down. In addition, the course will heighten participants' awareness of the present moment and encourage them to cultivate attitudes such as gratitude, curiosity and kindness.

Learning activities include:

  • Fun-filled activities and games to introduce mindfulness concepts
  • Short guided mindfulness practices
  • Discussion and exploration of experiences
  • Practice encouragement and support to aid the integration of mindfulness practices into daily life

What to bring:

  • writing materials
