Event description

Description

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 good heart to help children and families connect to their own capacity for calm, confidence and creativity.

Outcomes of the course
- Increased calm and confidence
- Joy and building connections with self and family
- Planting seeds for emotional wellbeing, empathy and heart-full listening
- Movement to embody mindfulness

Why we request a parent to come along? For these seeds to take root, mindfulness needs to become a part of the family. Small routines that are easy, natural and centering.

Our experience is that parents benefit greatly from the course, simple reminders about how to be present, calm and live well in a sometimes busy and stressful world.

"It has shown me strategies to stay calm, and manage stressful situations more easily. It has helped me a lot with my daughter and to manage the single parent/ working mum lifestyle. I did a recent mindful activity and after when I asked how they felt, one boy said “my heart grew two sizes”. It was the cutest thing, and still brings a smile of joy and tears of happiness to me when I think about it. I consider myself so lucky to have this training, thank you very much."
