Mindfulness For Children (It is recommended that parents do the Mindfulness for adults course to support learning)

This mindfulness course for children builds on, improves and enhances their existing strengths by teaching powerful techniques to enable them to become less anxious and more focused. By becoming more aware of their bodies and their thinking, children can learn to calm and soothe themselves, to focus when they need to, and to become aware of the messages in their emotions.

We will teach Mindfulness skills which enable them to learn ways to recognize when their attention has wandered and some tools for impulse control.

Rather than defining the word Mindfulness, we will plant the seeds of mindfulness by inviting the children to feel their experience first - to find their own still, quiet place within and to experience playful fun as they learn.

    What is 'mindfulness' and how can it help?

    Mindfulness is often defined as:

    'Paying attention on purpose moment by moment without judging, (Full Catastrophe Living, - Jon Kabat-Zinn).

    This means developing the ability to pay deliberate attention to our experience from moment to moment. Learning to tune in to what is going on in our mind and body without judging our experience of it. Becoming more aware of our thoughts, feelings and sensations may not sound like an obviously helpful thing to do, however learning to do this in a way that suspends judgement and self criticism can have surprising results.

    Imagine being able to practice awareness of your thoughts and feelings - to feel as though you have control instead of feeling anxious, fearful, worrying? Mindfulness can become our simple way of being - our conscious choice to stay aware in the present moment can mean the difference between being governed by anxiety and worry or experiencing calm centred awareness in our daily lives. Learning mindfulness is worth it!
