Let Your Light Shine: How Mindfulness Can Empower Children and Rebuild Communities by Ali Smith, Atman Smith, and Andres Gonzalez
This book introduces yoga and mindfulness practices as a foundational cornerstone for one’s own individual development and for those who wish to work with youth. LOVE is a continuous theme in their book. “Remember, love is everything. If the kids feel your love, your kindness, your humor, and your empathy, they will respond.” If you’re looking for a way to build a more peaceful, caring school community, and feel inspired, you’ll discover important insights as well as find practical advice, such as constructing a mindfulness room, reminders about meeting the students where they are and the importance of deep listening. A great read for this winter to feel your light shine.
