Micki Fine joins us to speak about her new children’s mindfulness book, May All People and Pigs Be Happy.
Introducing a concept, let alone a practice, that can be as fraught with nuance as mindfulness to adults can be very challenging. In some ways that introduction can be made more accessible when sharing it with a younger audience, who haven’t yet formed solidified concepts of what mindfulness “is.” But it takes skill and talent to open that door with wisdom, and integrity.
Micki Fine Pavlicek is a longtime psychotherapist in private practice, a certified teacher of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction trained at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts, a TEDx presenter, the founder of Mindful Living, and the author of The Need to Please: Mindfulness Skills to Gain Freedom from People Pleasing and Approval Seeking. She has taught mindfulness-based stress reduction and loving-kindness meditation since 1994 in a variety of settings, including her private practice, research environments, Rice University, the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and the Jung Center.
