Book Club Discussion
& Virtual Coffee 

You’re invited to join hosts Violeta Balan, a CGCC parent along with Katherine Peterson, a SENG Model Parent Group Facilitator, in an online book club conversation created to support your journey as parents of gifted children.  

This week, we will start discussing the topic of mindfulness, a practice for children but also self-care for adults. We are suggesting this book by a local teacher and renowned  author: Planting Seeds of Mindfulness: Creating the Conditions to Help Gifted Kids to Flourish and Bloom Intellectually, Emotionally, and Spiritually by Michele Kane & Dorothy A. Sisk. However, if you have read or prefer other mindfulness books, please feel free to revise those and share with us your thoughts on the topic.  

Log in details are sent in a confirmation email after you register.  Katherine has shared a mindfulness practice recording for us to consider using, if needed. 

Next meeting  will occur in two weeks on February 11, 2021 and we will most likely continue discussing the topic of mindfulness. 

Welcome to you all, with whatever time you have to partake in building our gifted community through reading, understanding and conversation.  Please reach out with any questions to Katherine Peterson or Violeta Balan.
