Change is in the air

Thank you for following the Mindful Minis journey for the past 7 years. It has been wonderful connecting with many of you – as parents whose children have attended classes with me, as well as those who have trained with me.

I hope that we will continue to stay connected as I move into a new space of working with older children and adults.

New channels to connect via:

I will keep this Mindful Minis website going for some time still as there is a wealth of information in the posts and parents can use the teachers network to connect with teachers in their area. But in time, I will say goodbye to Mindful Minis and hope that you will continue the journey with me at Mindfulness Practice ZA.

Hope to see you there!


mindfulness in schools

Upskilling and investing in ourselves is often overlooked but yet so important! I recently took the step to train to teach the .b programme offered by the Mindfulness in Schools Project (UK). What a great program!

.b (pronounced dot be) is a 10-lesson classroom-based mindfulness curriculum designed for pre-teens and teenagers. The lessons are fun and engaging! Feedback from students who take part in .b is very positive.

I am currently focusing on the Grade 5 and 6 age group. You can read more at here.

If you would like to discuss how the .b curriculum could be delivered in your school, feel free to contact me at

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.
