Learn practical body-based, mindfulness-based tools to strengthen the inner resources that allow children of all ages to “bounce back” from disappointments and difficulties, even disasters. Resilience is foundational to helping kids thrive in the world regardless of circumstances. 

Learn to teach:

  • "body-based practices to restore the nervous system to its natural baseline physiological equilibrium and the brain’s “range of resilience.”
  • mindful self-compassion practices that shift the functioning of the brain out of emotional reactivity and negativity into more openness and receptivity to learning.
  • exercises in self-awareness and self-acceptance that antidote the corrosive effects of shame – feeling unlovable or not good enough.
  • mindfulness practices that help children change every “should” to a “could” and shift from the limitations of a fixed mindset to the possibilities of a growth mindset.
