Mindfulness retreat can bring family together

At the Mindfulness Academy of Asia, we conduct mindful activities that help families experience the joy of being in the present moment and being together. Parents and children are encouraged to participate in activities that foster understanding, loving speech, and mindful listening skills. The purpose of this retreat is to help our elementary students understand and practice mindful listening, speaking, and thinking. Most importantly, the addiction to technology has allowed our children to be aggressive and less engaged with family routine. We want our children to experience the benefits of a continuous practice which results in mental clarity, deep relaxation, and increased resilience. In addition, the retreat provides strategies on how we can raise our children mindfully. Most important of all, we are giving our children a taste of what it feels like to live without technology, therefore, learning to enjoy the beauty of nature, friendship, and family. Parents are also welcome to join this retreat.
