Parents, educators and all who work and play with children
Learn fun activities that make teaching & parenting more fun
- that empower children to experience relaxed awareness
- that overview the body's response to distracting activities and stress
- that explore sight, sound, touch, taste, smell and body centered awareness
Each topic about the body's response to stress and distractions will be matched with short, fun, re-focusing and stress management activities.
For instance, imagine what your life would be like if taking brain brakes throughout the day was an integral part of your teaching job.
Imagine what your life would be like if introducing your children to sensory awareness during household activities was a regular part of your parenting.
In case it’s hard to imagine, we’ve structured these workshops so that, as you learn the information and engage in activities, you also have time to note: what changes in you as you listen and engage.
Taking time to notice is basic to
- refocusing attention
- self-regulating behavior
- conscious interactions
Growing these capacities in children - and their adults - is essential for shifting away from punitive discipline and creating co-operative relational and learning cultures.
In 3 or 4 hours, you’ll sample fun, sensory, self-regulating activities that adults can do with children. You’ll overview how these activities reverse the bodyʼs response to distracting activities and stress.
The 4 hour Introduction, (two sessions), includes safe touch training. You will be encouraged to practice new skills between sessions and discuss your experiences with the group.
