Mindfulness for Families – May 24th 6:30-7:30 pm at Quarterway School Library

Want to bring Mindfulness in to your home and family? Learn hands on science based techniques to calm the mind, fall asleep, and increase resiliency. Dominique Sullivan is a teacher-librarian in Sd 68 and has been a yoga teacher since 2003. The presentation is free or by donation and welcomes individuals and families. (no daycare available)

Life has its ups and downs; mindfulness allows us to meet those challenges with more grace and compassion.

This session will focus on the research by Dr. Kristen Neff and Dr. Chris Germer as well as resources and techniques from the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education.

Spring is almost here!

I can’t wait to start yoga outside this year. I have been teaching for 15 years and there has been a rejuvenation of my yoga practice as I took time for myself this year. The study of self compassion has been deeply healing and many of these concepts will be woven into the classes.  The science of wellbeing is a fascinating area of research and I have sent much of 2017-2018 in inquiry. I attend the Dalai Lama Conference, Victoria yoga conference and Teacher training for Teens and  I’m excited to share the latest science and research with my community.

New this year:

The Zen Librarian

 

      My name is Dominique Sullivan and I am the Zen Librarian.

I work in an elementary school as a teacher librarian and see the power books and information can make in an individuals life.  I have been a yoga teacher since 2003 and feel that my yoga practice is the foundation of my well being. I would like to provide resources, class schedule and  inspire others to find their own path to happiness.

” Yoga is a journey of  it self

through the self, to the self.”
