Mindfully Taming Your Puppy Mind with Andrew Nance on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 8

Andrew Nance is a Mindful Practitioner who enjoys bringing the gift of using the breath to focus the mind and body to classrooms of students as young as four and five years old. And if you giggled just now trying to imagine a group of kindergarteners practicing mindfulness, you need to hear Andrew describe his experiences teaching children to breathe quietly, all the while thinking to themselves, “with this breath my mind grows stronger so I can focus a little longer.” Andrew relates the practice of mindfulness to his own experience with theater arts, and discusses pursuing his passion amid the practicalities of work in the nonprofit sector. He’ll also tell you a little about his upcoming line of children’s books, which might be able to teach all of us how to relate to our inner puppy minds.
