Attention, Empathy, and Creativity Skills for Children and their Families

A workshop with Mindful Families faculty Bart van Melik, M.A. and Sonia Sequeira, Ph.D.

Thanks to the discovery of neuroplasticity, we now know that our brains are literally sculpted by habits of mind and action, and that attention, executive function, social self-regulation, and imagination can be easily and effectively trained. Mindfulness and yoga have been shown to be among the most potent ways to induce brain plasticity and enhance all aspects of cognitive and emotional self-mastery.

In an experiential learning format for children and their families, facilitators Bart van Melik and Sonia Sequeira introduce three skill sets in a 2 hour family circle: mindfulness and focus skills, empathy and dialogue skills, movement, breathing, and creativity skills.

This workshop is open to children 6-12 years old accompanied by their parents or caregivers, including children with attention challenges and learning differences.

Faculty: Bart van Melik and Sonia Sequeira

Schedule: Sunday, October 1st from 12:00 noon – 2:00pm

Tuition: $25 per person (each parent and each child)

Registration: Registration is handled through Tibet House. Register here.
