Learn More About Mindfulness With Governor Carney and Mayor Mike Purzycki Thanks To Delaware Changing Lives

Mindfulness: It is much more than meditation and yoga. It is being aware of where we are and what we are doing. It’s trying not to overreact or feel overwhelmed by what is going on around us. Sounds simple right? For some, it doesn’t come naturally, it is a learned skill, and Delaware is leading the charge in changing people’s lives through mindful practices. Delaware Changing Lives, a Delaware Collaboration of GIFT Global, is spearheading a large percentage of this work.

More About Delaware Changing Lives

Delaware Changing Lives is a coalition created by GIFT to serve as a model for social innovation and change utilizing mindfulness technologies. The organization’s mission is to make mindfulness training and help accessible to underserved populations. They also focus on training helping professionals so that they’ll have mindfulness practice to reduce their stress and burnout levels. During that training they also learn how they can then share mindfulness with the people they serve. Currently, the organization is focused on schools, mental health providers/agencies, veterans and non-profit agencies.

What’s going on at KCC?

On February 20th head to Kingswood Community Center to celebrate the First State’s success in trauma recovery, education on emotional management, positive expression of feelings and goals, along with showing empathy for others through action and conversation (also known as Social- Emotional Learning). Join Governor Carney, Senator Coons, Senator Carper, Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester, Lieutenant Governor Bethany Hall-Long, and Mayor Mike Purzycki to learn how to be more mindful and about the local initiatives bringing positive change to the community.
