The Mindful Bus
With Dr Ellis Edmunds
The Mindful Bus is a therapeutic board game designed for groups, couples, or individuals to apply the ACT model to their lives.
Dr Edmunds will be raffling a complete game set during the chapter meeting! One lucky attendee will go home with their very own Mindful Bus. Are you feeling lucky?
If you are unfamiliar with the ACT model, it will teach you the basics in a dynamic game format. For those already familiar with the model, it will provide a new context for using ACT concepts. I would also love any feedback for future editions of the game. It's ACT therapy in a box! You can learn more at www.themindfulbus.com.
