Mindfulness for Children & Families
A 90 minute interactive workshop designed especially for children with an accompanying parent. This is a playfully creative introduction to mindfulness for children. The latest brain research shows that kids learn best when they feel safe. Our goal is to give kids the tools to feel calm and happy in simple practical ways.
Kids bodies move, emotions move, we do not expect children to sit still for long periods of time. When we look we notice that movement is how we all live, from the tiniest of cells to the great swirling galaxies. Our bodies and minds are no different. If mindfulness is going to be useful in busy life, it too must move.
We do not use screens, we use our bodies and games to help families build a culture of simple mindful living.
We explore mindfulness through games, imaginative story, music, song and where possible contact with nature. We work with all the dimensions of being: body, emotions, thinking, and kind heart to help children and families connect to their own capacity for calm, confidence and creativity.
Outcomes of the course
Increased ability to find calm with anxiety and nervousness
increased confidence to be with stress and meet challenges
Joy and connection with self and family
A seed for growing emotional wellbeing
Fun movement (it is not just sitting still)
Planting seeds of empathy and heart-full listening
We want a parent to come along because if we are committed to living with kindness, calm & confidence, mindfulness needs to become a part of the family. We share ideas to help create routines that are easy, natural and calming.
Our experience is that parents benefit greatly from the course with simple reminders about how to be present, calm and live well in a sometimes busy and stressful world.
