How to Cultivate Jewish Mindfulness


This 7-page guide presents a 90-minute intergenerational program for families with children ages 7–12. It explores ways that Judaism can help us develop meaningful mindfulness practices.

Through movement and gentle physical activities (offered at five stations in the room), participants learn a variety of mindfulness practices and explore the value of k’vod atzmi (self-respect and self-compassion).

The guide includes:

  • Timing, materials, room set-up, and staffing
  • A full script for leading the workshop, including:
  • Introduction to Jewish mindfulness
  • Activities to do at five stations (Yoga, Calming Breathing, Silly Walking, Classic Mindful Walking, Cultivating Quiet)
  • Videos and resources to share
  • Sharing and Wrap-up
