Mindfulness for Educators (it’s official)

Each month you will get a chance to practice mindfulness (which as a parent and an educator I am well aware is a challenge), workshop ideas and share successes and challenges.

If you are a professional interested in teaching mindfulness to children and youth (PreK-12 educators, social workers/school psychologists, therapists, after school providers, etc.) and you live in or near Knoxville join us the first Monday of each month from 6:30pm-8pm at the Meaningful Life Center. Together we can do what we cannot do alone!

To learn more see the link below (registration is not required but may be helpful). You can join the group at any time.

Rocking Mindfulness at Reading Festival

What do you get when you mix beads and hundreds of kids on a sunny day- mindfulness at the reading festival!

Yesterday was Knox County Libraries’ annual Children’s Festival of Reading. Talking with hundreds of families about mindfulness was amazing. Kids got to make beaded bracelets to remind them to “Pause, Breathe, and Smile.” We also have four lucky winners (to be announced) of the newest Possibilities Exist resources, Everyday Mindfulness: A Week of Mindful Practices, a booklet with a different mindful practice for families every day of the week. The booklets will be available soon for purchase here on possibilities.exist.org.
