Item Description

Enjoy a beautiful setting and the company of others interested in cultivating mindfulness in children at Omega Institute for Holistic Studies. An important partner of the Shambhala Sun Foundation, Omega is offering the high bidder attendance at the August 6-8 Mindfulness and Education Conference.

Omega's catalog provides the following program description:

Mindfulness is a technique that fosters inner calm, increased awareness, and a sense of well-being. Over the past three decades, the practice of mindfulness has been taught to adults in hospitals and clinics to assist in pain management, stress reduction, and healing. Now mindfulness is being introduced into school curriculums.

The new field of teaching mindfulness in our nation's schools is a profoundly beneficial development for the education of children from grades K through 12. Research shows that mindfulness decreases stress, attention deficit issues, depression, anxiety, and hostility in children, while benefiting their health, well-being, social relations, and academic performance. Children can easily learn these techniques, and when learned young, they become lifelong tools.

The presenters for this program include: Jon Kabat-Zinn, Daniel Siegel, Linda Lantieri, Daniel Rechtschaffen, Susan Kaiser Greenland, Jennifer Cohen and Spring Washam. Please follow this link for further details.
