NYC: THE ART OF AWARENESS
February 20, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm ESTFree
Join us on Tuesday, February 20th for The Art Of Awareness- a parent/toddler observation class by Rose & Rex and Jennie Monness of Mo’Mommies. Join us for a special morning of connection, observation and play. Introduction to the “Art of Awareness” is a parent & toddler class about giving mobile babies and young toddlers an opportunity to play (or simply lay, roll, and find interest in just looking around) alongside other children in a safe environment set up with intentional equipment and imaginative Rose & Rex toys. During the session, led by Mo’Mommies founder and RIE® Practicum Student Jennie Monness, you will learn about the RIE® method and the importance of observation and reflection. The class will begin with a “warm in’ period followed by time to quietly observe while children interact, explore, and play. After observing, Jennie will lead an open discussion where you’ll be invited to share your thoughts about the process and talk about how to encourage your child’s natural abilities and self-initiation through free play. You’ll leave with an understanding of the “Art of Awareness” and how to thoughtfully interact with your children in a new way.
