The goal of the Mindful Children Alive program is to nurture a child's heart, mind, body & spirit. Beginning with self awareness, the child then looks outside her/himself to view the world's wonders & experience the awe & joys of life surrounding them. Essentials Curriculum developed by Mindful Schools as well as elements from MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) & MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) will be taught. Mindfulness Meditation & Centering form much of the lessons. Mindful Self-Compassion, Loving Kindness & ways to develop one's self esteem are an integral part of the course. During each class, students will participate in interactive discussions. Students will listen to poetry, keep a gratitude journal, & do music & art activities. The exercise component is TaiKiRo (developed by Steven M.F. Cohen) which are motions based on the principles & movements from Tai Chi & Aikido. In general, the child should come away with an enhanced experience of the sacredness in everyday life.
