Knitting and Mindfulness
March 29 -3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Participants will learn how to use crafting as a mindfulness practice through guided prompts and open knitting time. A mindfulness practice can help survivors realign mind with body and deepen a sense of self-knowledge. Knitting involves repetitive micro-movements which elicits a sense of stillness in the mind to ease developing mindfulness skills. Participants must have beginner knitting skills to participate.
