mindfulness together - Attention, Balance & Compassion - The New ABCs of Learning

Mindfulness Together is a Ning Network for adults dedicated to nurturing the inner lives of kids and those who love them. Their mission is create an online community dedicated to sharing secular mindful awareness with children, teens and their families. What is mindful awareness, you might wonder? It’s “a way of being in the world and a largely introspective process of actively attending to life experience from a perspective of kindness and compassion for self and others.”

For some members, this means doing guided meditations with their children. For others, it means believing in their child’s intelligence and curiosity, by explaining complex topics in approachable ways. And for some, it’s about incorporating Buddhist practices into their lives, and the lives of their families.
