Welcome! We are here to talk about silence, and the benefits that it can bring to modern childhood and family life.
Bringing good silence into the home can include mindfulness practices like sitting and guided meditation
but also dedicated time spent away from screens and technology.
Research shows that kids spend less time outside than those of previous generations. This can have adverse affects on their emotional and physical well-being.
Kids thrive with scissors, paper, glue, and tape. Their parents also do well with using their hands to tap into their creative side. The process is more valuable than the product.
Being able to be truly present in the moment can take some practice. This practice of focusing our minds on the here and now, without judgement, can help improve calm, health, compassion, and resilience.
