Mindfulness and Your Child

Presented By
Piero Falci
Mindfulness is a word that means different things to different people. Expert author and instructor Piero Falci will explain in this episode why it is important to help our children practice mindfulness meditation and prepare them to live more mindfully. He equates mindfulness to a sport in which mindfulness meditation is the practice and mindful living is the game. While practice is important, what we do in practice is of less consequence than our performance during the game. Viewers will truly be inspired by Piero Falci’s wisdom and learn valuable strategies for children to embrace life and become better human beings.

“There is a lot of violence and insanity in the world, and I am convinced that Mindfulness is an antidote to that. I am devoted to helping individuals have insights that may expand their selflessness and compassion and lead to the growth of kindness and care for all sentient beings and the natural environment.”
