Join us for IMCW's Spring Family Mindfulness Day! Gift your family quality time together to relax and reconnect in supportive community. Who should attend?  Parents & guardians with children age 5-13 interested in cultivating joy, awareness, and compassion in everyday life. 

This daylong will be led by Family Program Teachers Jen Jordan and Ofosu Jones-Quartey along with an experienced team of mindfulness instructors who will lead the children break-out groups. There will be a dedicated tween/ teen program. There are only two Family Days per year. Don't miss this opportunity!

We have 3 openings for teen counselors age 14-17 to assist our Mindful Leaders with the children break-out groups. This is a great opportunity for teens interested in working with children, serving as camp counselors, and/or who need school community service hours. 

This venue can be reached by bus from the Red Line Tenleytown Metro, and has street and school parking. The building is handicapped accessible.
