    Green Bay Area Public Schools

    Bring your lunch, network with area social workers, discuss relevant issues, and hear updates!

    12:45-3:15 PM  Mindfulness Workshop Presented by Beth Heller of Live54218

    Chances are, as mental health professionals, you already use techniques from the practice of mindfulness in your personal and work life.  Yet, there is always room to deepen our understanding of mindfulness as both a practice for stress-reduction as well as a path for self-discovery.  In this workshop we'll explore five different "access points" we can use to bring mindfulness into our lives:  body, breath, thoughts, wisdom and flow.  In addition, we will consider how these techniques and concepts can be woven into professional practice in school settings.

    Wear comfortable clothes, bring a yoga mat, and come prepared for gentle movement. 

    RSVP TO mjbaranczyk@gbaps.org
