My Mindful Life
6-8 Session Mindfulness Course for Children
Mindfulness is a powerful, scientifically proven approach to sustained wellness and happiness.
My Mindful Life teaches mindfulness to children to foster the life-long skills of self-awareness, compassion, empathy, & self-efficacy.
Most standard education systems currently only teach to the mind. That is cognitive skills such as math, reading, writing, & science. What is often overlooked & in many cases completely forgotten, is inter & intra personal intelligence. We have forgotten to also teach to the heart. To help children understand the self, emotional regulation, & empathetic interactions with others.
Mindfulness is purposefully bringing awareness to one's experience.
In today's fast paced, over-stimulating world, it is more important than ever to learn tools of awareness. As a whole we are more overloaded, stressed, & disconnected than ever before. We have forgotten the importance of connection to the self.
Mindfulness brings calm awareness to our individual needs & experiences. Improving the way we engage with those around us. It helps to nurture positive self & peer relationships, self-authority, & social-emotional learning.
From this place children learn how to choose thoughtful responses verses emotionally charged reactions.
Improving learning, attention, emotional regulation, empathy, & conflict resolution.
