Peace and Play: How to balance out mental stress toxins with mindfulness and play
Too often we are bombarded with ways to combat toxins that we eat, breathe, and take in medicine(s). The stress of sustaining a balanced life in an imbalanced world involves curiosity, and a playful mindset. Can we be more curious about stress? Can we create new approaches to balance within the body. How can we playfully and mindfully approach how we respond and deal with mental toxins (stress and trauma.) This workshop is interactive, fully engaging experientially and for those who are seeking alternatives to mental toxins that are sustainable, well-ness based, playful and easy to practice day to day.
Wonderful workshop for parents and educators who want to also teach emotional regulation to kids through peace and play modalities.
