“Play touches and stimulates vitality, awakening the whole person – mind, body, intelligence and creativity.” -Viola Spolin

Mindfulness and play, build creativity, fortitude and connection in community work for activists, therapists, social workers, and definitely youth! Being mindful increases our ability to recover from stress, avoid being reactionary, and ultimately be more present and productive in service of your clients and team. This workshop will include mindful practice/meditation, and several accessibly physical games to help relieve stress, build community, and increase mental functioning.
