Building resilience, awareness, emotional regulation and a coping tool kit one mindful moment at a time!

As parents and carers we want to protect our children from the challenges life can throw at them while preserving our sanity as well. Beyond simply increasing attention, Mindfulness cultivates self awareness making it a powerful tool for enhancing social-emotional learning at school and at home. Join Amy Rubin, founder of MindfulSELFF, and discover helpful ways to Manage strong emotions, handle setbacks and difficult experiences while building empathy and resilience for yourself and your loved ones.

Through guided practice, demonstrations, shared resources and supportive networking, participants will come to discover:

Simple practices to infuse calm into their lives to build attention and resilience into their households.
Powerful ways to flip the switch (of awareness) rather than flipping our lids (explosively reacting rather than compassionately responding)
A heart-centered approach to managing strong thoughts and feelings to grow compassion for themselves and others.
