In this session, we will learn about the potential impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on individuals later in life, often resulting in non-productive coping skills, addictive behaviors and/or a multitude of physical ailments and conditions. We will also learn how practicing mindfulness can enable us to heal, recover, or remain unaffected by these traumatic childhood events. The session will include fun, interactive mindfulness activities that can help propel us into healthy, happy and compassionate lives.
