Mindfulness

Possessing a sense of caring for others and the confidence to know you can make a difference is critically important. Scientists have found positive changes in the brain for those who practice mindful meditation. These changes correlate with a renewed sense of overall good health, feelings of inner peace; a better ability to focus and self-regulate; and an increased capacity for compassion and kindness towards others. Together with Katherine McHugh, founder and executive director of Awaken Mindfulness & Resilience Training, we are pleased to share a series of videos introducing mindfulness. Katherine leads adults in guided meditations and we invite kids to meet Serena the frog at the Peaceful Pad and enjoy the benefits of mindful meditation.
