U-Instructor: Vanita Pierre
The goal of this workshop is for you, the parents and caregivers of the children, to leave feeling empowered, excited, and enthused about sharing the meditation tools and techniques that you’ve learned with the children. It has been designed for you to truly value what you are learning and to understand the importance of these tools for the greater good, and for YOU to feel calmer and more peaceful from doing the techniques YOURSELVES.
This 3-hour workshop explains what meditation is, whilst uncovering some of the myths and common misconceptions of the practise of meditating. It discusses the benefits of meditation and the reasons we should be encouraging children to cultivate the habit of sitting and going within.
Conscious Kids: The Art of Meditation also includes 3 meditation techniques which you will learn and practice yourselves and with your classmates. This interactive workshop will allow plenty of opportunity to share learning and feedback on individual experiences. You will also glean a few ideas on mindfulness games and activities that can be played with the children to make learning these practices more fun. Together, we will also discuss barriers to meditation and how WE can overcome them so the kids can gain the maximum benefit of this practice.
This workshop is geared towards adults who care for/work with children anywhere between age 4 and 18, in some capacity. Kids will not attend this version of the workshop.

This workshop is for you if…
The world we live in is forever changing, yet a parent’s concern for their child always remains constant. Recognizing the children’s needs and the need for real-time remedies, workshops in our It Takes a Village School focus on the whole child and understand that the catalyst for change begins with consciously educating our kids. We also understand that the values of kindness, community, emotional intelligence, respect and self-empowerment are just the beginning of teaching our children well in order to let them lead the way. Join us for support, collaboration, unique strategies and creative approaches to educating magical parents and children of all ages to grow through life feeling loved and whole.
