Mindfulness has been given a trendy new look lately but what does it really mean and why do people swear by it? The great news is that it doesn’t require hours of meditation in a cave somewhere. Instead, it can be easily brought into your life with just a few simple steps. Through this 1.5 hour workshop, parents will develop a deeper appreciation of mindfulness and how to use it as a tool to bring the whole family closer together.
