B12 – The Road to Wellness: The Catholic Way

Presenters: Paula Zecchini Mitton, Marica Mattaliano (Hamilton)
Audience: Elementary
Description: Burn-out, stress, and anxiety are hallmarks of today’s culture. In our desperation to feel well, we often turn to ‘alternative practices’, such as mindfulness and yoga, to combat these attacks on our peace of mind, health and happiness. But are these best options for Catholics? In this workshop, you will ‘learn’ how the Catholic disciplines, such as the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Lectio Divina, can reconnect us to God and restore us. Find out how to incorporate these practices into the classroom to instill calm and a readiness to learn. See how to adapt these practices to popular self-regulation programs. Restore us, LORD God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved. Ps. 80:19
