Purpose of this workshop:
To bring awareness of mindfulness to parents and teachers and how they can use it with the children in their lives. The day will be hands on, fun and calm. There is no pressure for anyone to be actively involved but it is encouraged. This is a new concept for a lot of people in the U.A.E and our aim is to ease people into a new way of living their lives. By showing adults ways to practice mindfulness themselves, it will make it easier for them to show children.
Mindful Matters is bringing together a range of initiatives that aid the well-being of all individuals that practice them. In today’s world, we can become focused on one aspect of what makes us a healthy person. In most cases the focus is on the physical body through exercise and nutrition. Little is done to teach how we can deal with difficult emotions and situations. 80% of stress is caused by the mind which can lead to numerous diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, depression, obesity, to name a few. By teaching a holistic approach to well-being we can reduce stress and disease on this planet.
