Teaching Mindfulness - Walking A Spiritual Path

This workshop delves into mindfulness practices from traditional theory to an energetic approach designed to promote a deeper understanding of the practice.  Participants learn how to use energetic techniques to teach others about the mind-body connection.  Mindfulness philosophy is discussed in the context of the healing arts and healing space, specifically the practice's impact on energetic frequency and how this understanding is key to responding properly to behavioral responses triggered by the practice.  Participants will engage in activities which demonstrate the role the mind plays in setting frequency to achieve a new perspective on the concepts of resistance and creative adjustment.  Participants will use the energetic body as a visual guide to learn how to direct the mind and enter relaxed states, and as a diagnostic tool to help create healthy mental patterns for energetic support through challenges.

This workshop is highly recommended for parents, caretakers, healing arts practitioners and traditional mindfulness teachers.  It shows a "new" way of working with mindfulness practices that is both visual and very engaging.  These techniques have been used successfully with children and at-risk teens, as well as adults. These techniques have also been helpful for youth with attention deficit disorders. It is a wonderful framework for working with the mind and yields immediate results.  Participants will feel empowered as they practice directing subtle energies to rebalance the energetic system and experience states of calmness and peace.

Elisabeth Wilds has been teaching these techniques for over three years to at-risk youth at Covenant House NY, an international homeless youth not-for-profit organization with great success.  Not only do the youth experience states of peace, but they develop an understanding of the mind-body connection that allows them to choose peace and calm over anger.  Many youth have found these techniques life changing.

Students at Watertown's Atrium School Collaborate with Author to write Children's Book about Mindfulness.

  • Friday, June 8, 2012 (12:30 pm - 1:15 pm) at Atrium School, Watertown, Massachussets - Elisabeth Rose Wilds and Brian Dorr share the children's chapter book, Cookie's Magical Snow  with students.

Elisabeth wrote this book with the advice of 7 and 8-year-old students at Atrium School, noting, "These children wanted a book on friendship that also dealt with being left out and excluded."   One child commented, "I will love the story most if Cookie learns something in the end... one of those hard to learn things that makes things better with friends."  These children's pearls of wisdom are included as an afterword.

Wilds comments further, "To bring a new perspective to the children's friendship issues, Cookie sees them through the eyes of the Green Dragon.  This perspective shocks Cookie into understanding that many of the rules creating her anxiety are what she labels as 'children rules' and from that point forward, she begins to question the 'children's rules' real authority over her.  Ultimately, Cookie conquers these rules through a combination of sheer determination and some mindfulness practices, which support her as she moves forward into a healthier space."

Brian Dorr, illustrator notes, "Life is full of change.  This book's message of greeting change as an adventure helps children learn to view change in a positive way, stay present in the moment and put aside worry and fear."
