Being a certified mindfulness instructor, a school teacher, a singer-songwriter and a comedy performer makes Mo an ideal conduit to introduce mindfulness to young people in a playful and memorable way.
Mindfulness can be fun. We can laugh ourselves into the present moment and be momentarily free from the mind’s chatter.
One of the interesting aspects of her performance includes using a loop pedal which records layers of sounds in real time. This is an interactive part of the performance where Mo invites percussive or vocal contributions from students in the audience. This creates a background soundscape that continually loops as she tells a funny story about our inner voices that chatter away seemingly on a loop. She then demonstrates the power of replacing this cacophony with a more pleasant “loop” of positive self-talk.
