with Hazel Rose and Coco Peila
Mindful Life Project will be presenting a Mindfulness and Hip Hop workshop, offering interactive strategies and activities to connect with youth. Expressive arts activities like theater, poetry, rap and dance provide a crucial outlet for youth to express their emotions in a mindful, constructive and transformative way. By affirming the stories and voices of youth, we build their leadership, confidence, and self expression. Mindfulness/Hip Hop instructors Coco Peila and Hazel Rose will offer a variety of activities and best practices within this arena. Prepare to get on your feet and have fun while expressing yourself!
