Don’t Sweat the Flops: Using Mindful Play and Learning to Redefine Stress 

What’s your reaction when life throws you or your team a curveball? How well do you adapt when things don’t go as planned? This energizing and interactive session redefines the experience of “failure” and provides strategies for encouraging mindful learning and resilience. 

Practice looking at things from this fresh perspective by embracing the flop – a flop ball that is. A flop ball is a specially designed bean bag that plays on the back of your hand twisting the whole experience of tossing and catching upside down. Accessible to everyone, it’s the perfect tool for helping a diverse audience of learners process ideas related to mindfulness, mindset, and finding flop. 

Individual and partner challenges combined with current research leave everyone recharged, refreshed, and ready for the summer. Best of all, every participant will leave with a flop ball to continue embodying mindful learning and play long after the event.
