Through mindfulness-or self care and self love-workshops, students will have the opportunity to cultivate and realize the power they each hold. The power to learn more, the power to ask for help and the power to help themselves and others.* Each workshop or series incorporates an art project that each classroom can keep on display to remind them of the powerful messages they have learned.
