Workshop in Langa

My heart was warmed this morning (despite the cold weather in Cape Town!) when I facilitated a one day workshop for @siyakhula.langa and @projplaygroundsa in Langa, on how to share mindfulness with children.

The enthusiasm from the participants was contagious as they spoke about how eager they are to share the learnings from the training with the children they work with. The gift of mindfulness is spreading!

It was also wonderful to hear how the participants felt they had learnt so many mindfulness tools they can use in their own lives for self-regulation.

It was a great day all round! If you would like to arrange a one day mindfulness workshop for your school or organisation that works with children, you can email me at

mindfulness for children in cape Town

I just love this quote from the beautiful book “The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse” by Charlie Mackesy.

The book is a treasure of wisdom so….. I have decided to use the book as inspiration for the Mindful Minis lessons this term.

If you think your child would like to learn more about mindfulness with the boy, the mole, the fox and the horse, please email me at to find out more.

  • Mondays 4.15pm – 5pm: Grade 1 – 4

I am loved.

I am safe.
