Managing Your Mind - Tips and tools to stay cool at school 29.04.17
Sat 29 April 2017, 10:00 – 12:00 BST
In a two-hour introductory workshop, for students in Years 5 and 6 (aged 9 -11 years), we will explore through games, exercises and discussion how the practice of mindfulness can increase concentration and focus. More importantly, we will also discover how the practice can help us manage challenging emotions and stay calm in times of change.
The workshop is for children only, but parents are asked to join us towards the the end of the session to learn how best to support their children in the practice, and to take part in a short Q&A.
“Mindfulness is a bit like learning that you have your own ‘super-power’, your own inner power that is always there if you need it. You can’t levitate or anything but it makes you feel strong.” - Student, aged 10
"Mindfulness makes you feel like you can do anything" - Student, aged 10
"It is a practice that can help you calm down if you're stressed" - Student, aged 11
“In Spiderman, there’s a woman in a green costume who meditates and it makes her go from being old to young. Meditation is a bit like a sword that cuts through old wrinkled thoughts and makes your brain feel fresh again.”
- Student, aged 10
