Sign up to Mindful Family Day
Busy schedules, digital devices, lots of stress and pressure — all of this can easily lead to family members who live separate lives and are disconnected from each other. If you think your family could use a Sunday morning stepping out of your busy lives and be inspired to be more present as a family, then join us for a good start to 2019 for a Mindful Family Day.
Date: Sunday the 3rd of February 2019
Location: The American School of the Hague (ASH)
Price: €40 per family (no matter the size) This will include coffee/tea/water/juice/snacks and materials.
The day will start with a joint fun introduction to mindfulness that is suitable for the whole family. We will then split up into three groups (adults, teenagers (13-18) and children (8-12)) where we will continue to explore age-appropriate ways to be more aware and present in our lives. For the last part of the day, we will work together as a family. Each family will be given a creative project that will facilitate discussions and allow you to find ways to strengthen your relationship, increase everyone’s well-being, handle difficulties and generally bring the family closer together. You will be able to bring the result of the project home to use as a reminder or inspiration for more family-time at home.
