Children -The Key to the Mindfulness Multiplier Effect with Rose Pavlov

Rose founded Ivy Child International, a Massachusetts-based non profit, devoted to universal mindfulness education, prioritizing the multicultural needs of children and communities. Ivy Child's culturally-tailored programs are designed to serve diverse educational systems and communities, with a special focus on urban populations. At the heart of Ivy Child’s mission is the belief that when you provide any individual access to learn and practice mindfulness, it not only enhances their direct well-being, it also ripples out to benefit all of those in their outer world (peers, neighbors, family, larger community). This is Ivy Child International’s Mindfulness Multiplier Effect ™ This presentation will focus on the systemic integration of building mindfulness across campuses and communities allowing children to lead as ambassadors to social change.

At the end of this event, participants will be able to:

1. Practice simple mindfulness tools and strategies for self-care and wellness.
2. Utilize practical techniques and strategies to share mindfulness with children and youth.
3. Explain the need to customize culturally-based mindfulness practices for urban communities.
