Pay What You Can, suggested value $10
For the month of July, the Rothko Chapel presents Mindful Moments for Parents and Families as a part of our summer series of family-friendly program offerings. Led by Simone Woodage from Dawn Mountain, this session will offer busy parents some simple, sharable practices to promote mindfulness and full attention in the present moment. From mindful listening to mindful eating, to the gift of a simple, grateful pause, these tools are useful for adults and children alike, and can help add a beautiful new dimension to connections within a family.
