Join Our Virtual Expert Chat!
Join Dr. Shelley Murphy and me (Yollanda Zhang) for a Virtual Expert Chat about how mindfulness can help children and adults thrive during this challenging time. It will be held on Zoom on Thursday, Oct. 1 from 7pm to 8pm.
I attended one of Dr. Murphy's talks when COVID first hit and I was blown away by what she shared on the research of mindfulness. That's partly why Girl. Strong. will be using her newly launched book, "Fostering Mindfulness", as part of our curriculum. I feel so fortunate that she has agreed to be interviewed for us to learn more about her work on mindfulness and we can all thrive together!
