Cheddy Harvey and Siobhan LeGros shared their wisdom and knowledge with a packed house for our Commons Speaker Series presentation on Raising Mindful Children on February 15th. Cheddy and Siobhan have separately pursued mindfulness and the various aspects of it — neuroscience, meditation, self-care, applications for teachers/parents — and have partnered often to present this valuable information to the Harley community and beyond.
The evening was a blend of science information, mindfulness exercises (who knew one could eat a jelly bean mindfully??), and anecdotes from students about how mindfulness helps them in the classroom. The primary research came from Dr. Dan Seigel‘s work, although several other researchers and practitioners were referenced.
