Center for Creative Education
“A Taste of Mindfulness” FREE Class
September 11 from 6:30-8:30pm
Come tap into your ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations at a FREE introductory class – A Taste of Mindfulness. This class is an opportunity for participants to get a taste of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Participants will learn how stress affects people differently, how to respond versus react to stress and improve one’s overall health. Attendees will experience introductory exercises that can be utilized immediately to reduce stress levels.
Hosted by the Center for Creative Education, A Taste of Mindfulness will be taught by Kimberly LaRue. LaRue bases her practice on lessons she learned at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester. A former yoga instructor at The Breakers, LaRue believes that “so often people are living in the future or the past, which causes them to be overwhelmed on a consistent basis. Practicing mindfulness can help bring people back to the present and reduce overall stress.”
The Center for Creative Education uses the arts to bring learning to life. CCE uses arts integration to merge the arts with academics by incorporating hands-on projects to enhance children’s knowledge of math, science, literacy and more. Arts integration encourages creative thinking and problem solving skills. CCE works with children all over Palm Beach County, mostly in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Having opened its new building this past spring in Northwood Village, this class marks the Center’s inaugural in-house class offering, in addition to the community outreach for which it has long been known.
