Event description

Description

Inspired Girls Leadership program promotes girls empowerment through mindfulness tools and evidenced based information surrounding leadership. Our mission is to educate young girls and provide tools to help them navigate the big, busy and at times overwhelming world around them.

This full day workshop combines two of the major parts of the program:

Path 1: Introduction to Mindfulness (10:30 am - 12:30 pm)

Path 2: Shine Bright: Ignite the Leader Within (1:30 pm - 6 pm)

Introduction to Mindfulness

This is the foundation workshop for our leadership program. This first layer provides young girls tools to build self-awareness through mindfulness practices. We'll explore movement (yoga and functional movement through play), breath, and meditation. Self-awareness is key in building leadership qualities. With deep inner knowledge, a better understanding of self, children can gain insight on their thoughts, feelings and actions.

Research shows that self-awareness is critical to academic success, positive relationships, and happiness. It is an ability that evolves during childhood and is a key part of healthy brain development. Self-awareness is a skill that can lend itself to many aspects of a young girl’s life. A child can tap into her strengths, begin to work on gaining more focus as she works on tasks, build her sense of feeling and build the ability to tap into her gut or intuition – “what feels true and right for me” and “what do I like and dislike”.

More importantly through mindfulness practices they will gain tools that can help them cope with stress, improve concentration, cultivate empathy, and resilience. We’ll practice a simple method that parents can practice with children at home , “ I see, I listen, I feel, I know” method. Simple exercise of acknowledging the ever-changing nature of thoughts and sensations that surround us. From there we’ll use the breath and movement to explore even further our sense of awareness of our bodies, minds, and surroundings. We’ll also spend some time tapping into their unique strength, and create strength rocks that can serve as a reminder of what is truly unique and beautiful within themselves.

Shine Bright : Ignite the Leader Within

Shine Bright is the second path (stage) in the Inspired Girls Leadership program. The first which is the Introduction to Mindfulness highlights the special and powerful practice of the cultivation of awareness through mindfulness practices such as mindful listening, eating, movement, and applying this sense of listening from within to identify their strengths and weave it into the practice of gratitude.

This path takes the girls towards an exciting journey of self-discovery where we explore leadership qualities and highlight key insight to develop confidence, empathy and resilience in oneself by:

• learning how to collaborate with others (synergise)
• enhancing communication skills (finding your voice, making friends and conflict resolution)
• discovering creative and proactive ways of meeting goals (create healthy habits and vision)
• celebrating uniqueness and strengths (body love/body positive)
• and many more…
