The Olean Meditation Center will run a Mindful Families program from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the center, 2275 Dugan Road.
The center aims to help families with young children find, or reclaim, the elements of mindfulness and self-compassion with programs that nourish the emotional and spiritual health of parents and children together.
Activities will include yoga with Kristin Buchholz, certified children’s yoga instructor, as well as stories and craft time, music, meditation, and family traditions guidance with Jeanne Walk, certified speech pathologist and teacher.
Katie Ward, Olean La Leche League breastfeeding counselor and educator, also will share information.
The Saturday session will be designed for families with children in grades K through 5. Participation in the program is free through the sponsorship of Leon Logothetis. Donations are gratefully accepted.
All family members, regardless of age, are encouraged to attend, including grandparents or other caregivers. People of all faith & spiritual backgrounds are welcome. Refreshments will be served.
Participating families are asked to register no later than Wednesday by calling 491-3178 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
