Why Aren't We Teaching You Mindfulness

"Everyone of you have all experienced pain. Pain is inevitable. Suffering? Well, that is a choice...We can choose not to be victims to our circumstances, because we can choose our reactions" 
In this inspiring talk, AnneMarie Rossi, an instructor bringing mindfulness to shelters, shares her research into how mindfulness can set us up for success and break cycles of transgenerational trauma. AnneMarie is the founder and director of Be Mindful, a non-profit whose mission is to provide individuals, particularly those in underserved communities, with access to qualified instructor-led courses in mindfulness; encourage diversity and inclusion while mentoring teachers within these communities; and continue to contribute valuable research to the study of mindfulness. They currently teach in Denver Public Schools, St. Vrain Public Schools, Urban Peak Youth Homeless Center, and through the Red Cross.
