Aug. 19 Be the Pond: Kids' Meditation Class!

This is a class about mindfulness. Teaching children that they can observe their thoughts without engaging or judging them. I am the pond and the fish swimming by are my emotions,  I am not my emotions, I am just the pond observing the fish. We will listen to a short 9 minute guided meditation, talk about what was experienced and then move on to paint a picture of a pond on an 8x10 or bigger canvas.
