Mindfulness Groups

Do you feel your child is faced with the pressures of school?
…peers and popularity? …your personal standards?

Don’t lower your expectations, but do arm your child with the skills to live a healthy, positive, and stress free life so that he or she is resilient to the overwhelming pressures of being a child.

What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is paying attention here and now with kindness and curiosity.
