On Friday 10 May at 11am primary schools across the world will be participating in the largest ever Mindful Moment – bringing mindfulness to a generation of children. The event is being launched by Jonny Benjamin, MBE, a mental health campaigner and founder of charity ‘Beyond Stigma, Beyond Shame’, who grew up in a Reform community.
It would be amazing if we could also take this opportunity to bring mindfulness to our students in Reform chedarim across the UK on Sunday 12 May. You can watch or listen to a 15 minute recording of the event with your class, or even just read the script to your class – it is as simple as that! All the information and resources you need can be found here.
Share your photos and experiences on social media with #MindfulMoment2019.
Jonny will be a keynote speaker at the forthcoming Reform Judaism conference on mental health and wellbeing – there will also be a workshop on mindfulness and meditation and much more on offer – more information and booking here.
If you would like to explore mental health and wellbeing more in your chedarim, Reform Judaism has a team of advocates available to run sessions for children, leaders, teachers and parents/carers – to find out more contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
