 Heart-Mind Workshops

With Spring fast approaching we are delighted to announce we will be hosting Heart-Mind Well-Being Workshops over the next few months at the Dalai Lama Center in downtown Vancouver.

In our Heart-Mind Workshops we share current research, scientific knowledge, best practices and practical strategies related to the promotion of social and emotional development in children. The workshop helps adults explore ways to help children feel secure and calm in their lives, approach situations with curiosity and confidence, solve problems peacefully, and get along with others.
