Family Mindfulness

Rural Response for Healthy Children provides this collection to help families understand the significance of growing mindfulness together.  We encourage you to view these videos and create a regular practice at home with your children.  There are so many benefits!

What is mindfulness?  Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way:  On purpose, in the present moment, and without judgment” (Jon Kabat-Zinn).  Mindfulness is a meditation tool that may be practiced to build resilience.

This is a collection of  meditations created by Jennifer Reaburn. Jennifer is our yoga and meditation teacher who brings mindfulness practice and yoga into schools, and educating about social emotional learning.
