Caring for our Minds and Hearts

This is a four-week series of classes for an invited audience of younger members (ages 8 - 12) of The Bright Side of Dyslexia Support Group, a support network for people with dyslexia and parents of children with Dyslexia in the Dublin 15 area. The 75-minute classes will offer practical activities to participants to help them:

- be a great friend to ourselves
- grow our happiness
- strengthen our focus
- face obstacles
- be a good guardian of our thoughts
- connect with everything that we love and appreciate

In each workshop participants will be encouraged to use their imaginations, move, draw pictures and tell stories.

All of these activities are mindfulness-based and underpinned by research. These practices give us a space to explore how to resource ourselves appropriately, so that we can live the life we want.
