The ACE Study, Resources for Resilience, Meditation for Children
1:09:26In today's episode, I will be talking with Ann DuPre Rogers, executive director for Resources for Resilience, about how understanding ACE Scores can heal our society and improve our personal well-being. We also touch upon ways to help children experience a mindful body centered meditation to increase resilience. This particular podcast was inspired by the work Melissa Baker, my wife of 18 years, was so passionate about. She had a strong drive to share this information and pioneered its dissemination in and around Asheville, NC where we lived for 10 years. Even in the final weeks of her life, she would brighten at any opportunity to discuss these topics. She has left behind a legacy of powerful professionals in the Asheville area to carry on this profoundly healing work. It is my hope that you discover a way to bring this knowledge to your own community. I was also inspired by all the questions I received from meditation students asking about the value of meditation for children. While I think meditation is fantastic to learn at any age, in our current culture, the trainings and techniques promoted by Resources for Resilience will likely have a more immediate effect on a child's well-being. https://resourcesforresilience.com/
