The 12th annual Edna Thomas Lecture Series will feature Susan Kaiser Greenland, author and founder of the acclaimed Inner Kids program affiliated with UCLA’s Mindfulness Awareness Research Center.
The seminar, titled “The Mindful Child: how to help your kid manage stress and become happier, kinder and more compassionate,” will focus on ways parents can help children respond to stressful situations, be aware of their own healthy inner compasses, and become more thoughtful, resilient and empathetic. Join us to learn the new ABCs of attention, balance and compassion. Greenland will share tools from which parents and educators can benefit.

The session is free and open to the public. Share it with others on Facebook! For more information, call The Community Foundation at 615-321-4939.
