Week 4: The Nature of the Mind
The Nature of the Mind.
We'll explore the nature of the mind this week. We'll dive into the power of thoughts and learn how to avoid the "second arrow" that causes so much suffering. We'll also practice some mindfulness in a variety of ways (like we've been doing!). Mindfulness is great for adults and kids alike in supporting our ability to cope more effectively with intense emotions, be more aware of our own thoughts and feelings, and in enhancing our ability to communicate with and be more tuned-in to others in our environment.
For the Kiddos
The last part of the resilience talk will dive into support for kids and parents.
In this session we briefly review mindfulness strategies and resources for kids and teens that are helpful in times of high anxiety.
- How to Create a Glitter Jar for Kids. The glitter jar represents the mind settling. It's a great afternoon activity that your kids can keep coming back to as a mindfulness practice. Learn about it here at Mindful.org.
