Across the country, the revolutionary MindUP program, developed under the auspices of the Hawn Foundation, established by Goldie Hawn, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills. By understanding how their brains work, children discover where their emotions come from and become more self-aware. They learn to appreciate the sensory aspects of their lives and to value the positive effects of mindfulness, compassion, and kindness. This, in turn, empowers them to manage and reduce their own stress--and helps them be happy. Those who have seen the effects of this program have been eager to learn how to implement it in their own homes and use its practices for themselves, too. Here, for the first time, its secrets are being shared with all parents and children.--From publisher description.
