As a faculty member of the UW Health Mindfulness Program, I developed innovative mindfulness classes to support family connection. These popular 4-week courses are offered several times a year. For more information, please visit the UW Health Mindfulness Program.

Mindfulness for Families

This four-session course for families and children ages 4-7 will incorporate relaxation techniques, movement, games, stories and glitter to introduce families to core concepts of mindfulness. Together we will cultivate specific ways of paying attention to our breath, body, feelings, thoughts, actions and each other. By focusing our attention, we can respond with less frustration and more compassion for ourselves and one another. Making these skills playful and part of day-to-day routines will be emphasized.
