A past trainee from the Mindful Minis Advanced Training program sent me this beautiful picture of a children’s mindfulness workshop that she recently ran in the Plettenberg Bay area. Don’t you just love the zebra in the background. Magical!

It warmed my heart to receive this photo from a recent trainee on the Mindful Minis Foundation Training after she tried her first mindfulness meditation with her class.
The practice is spreading! Yay!
In preparation for this weekend’s Foundation Training course, I made some 100% natural playdough, coloured by blueberries!
Check out the amazing purple colour in the final product. So beautiful! Nature continues to inspire me with her colours.
Thanks to Anna from @theimaginationtree for the wonderful inspiration! It worked beautifully Anna, and is perfect to use with young children as there are no nasties. Read more here about other natural dyes that Anna recommends.
2020 brings a new and exciting program to Mindful Minis!
This year I will be offering an 8-week course called Raising Emotionally Intelligent Children.
The course is structured so that both child and parent attend the weekly sessions together. The course focuses on growing your child’s self-awareness skills, by using a variety of mindfulness tools, in order to help your child better understand how they are feeling at any given moment. Your child does not need any previous experience in mindfulness to attend the course, but it is helpful if the parent attending has some understanding of what mindfulness is about.
Due to the format of the course, only one parent per child can be accommodated.
This course is aimed at children from Grade R to Grade 5.
