It may look like our kids are putting their feet up and relaxing—and they are! They’re practicing mindfulness, thanks to the Five Stones Institute, which has been leading our After-School kids in mindfulness exercises as a monthly enrichment activity. Five Stones is using the practice of mindfulness to teach our children to define and understand ways to address stress, anger and frustration and to develop a set of personal tools, such as breathwork, meditation and relaxation, to support calm and balanced responses to stressors.
Do you or your company have a talent or skill to share? Please consider leading an enrichment workshop, seminar or course for our After-School or Family Education programs. Contact Opportunity Center Director Maria Vasquez for more information: 703-729-4951 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
