eMindful offers live, online classes with renowned French Chef Michelle Sugiyama. With all the stressors on today's parents, children are eager to offer Mom or Dad a gift that can ease everyday tension. Chef Sugiyama's Chocolate and Mindfulness!? class teaches participants how to savor chocolate and bring balance to parents' busy lives.
In eMindful's virtual classroom, students see, hear, and interact in real-time with Chef Michelle and other class participants - in the comfort of home or office. Three classes are currently scheduled for January and February 2008. A simple home computer and internet connection are all that is needed.
This is the perfect gift for the busy mom or dad to reduce stress and bring balance. In a June 2007 New York Times article, Dr. Susan L. Smalley, a professor of psychiatry at U.C.L.A. and director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC), tells the story of a child in a pre-kindergarten mindfulness class who offered her mom a solution to every day stress: "One 4-year-old noticed her mother succumbing to road rage while stuck in traffic. She said, 'Mommy, Mommy, you have to sing the (mindfulness) breathing song'," Dr. Smalley said. Susan Kaiser Greenland, founder of the InnerKids Foundation, calls mindfulness "the new ABC's -- learning and leading a balanced life." Combining chocolate with life balancing skills makes a unique and wonderful holiday gift.
