In today's episode of Lean Into You, we talk with Crystal Jensen, the owner and founder of Mindful Expressions, a mindfulness and nature-based child care center in British Colombia, Canada. In our chat, we will talk about mindful play and how we can begin to restore childlikeness. We will cover:
1) The importance of play for self-realization
2) How we can begin to reclaim childlikeness for ourselves as educators
3) How to regulate while you educate
4) Some mindful play activities you can incorporate in classroom today.
