Day 1 of the #MindfulKidsPeaceSummit is here! The theme today is We Are All One: Diversity, Inclusion, and Communication.

Next up is Maureik Robison, of Inner Explorer. He was so chill, and he made me laugh a lot! Listen to these great lessons:
“A reaction is mindless, & a response is #mindful…There’s lots of people not listening to understand, & instead they’re waiting to speak. So they’re not in the moment. When communicating between two people, it is really important to actively listen.”
“These practices are inclusive. It’s like asking “Should we brush our teeth”. Practicing daily prevents stress/trauma/mental health the same way brushing your teeth prevents gum disease/cavities. You wouldn’t tell someone to stop brushing their teeth.”
