Today is a special day for me.
Two things close to my heart have finally come together. As you know, I am passionate about mindfulness and meditation for children. What you might not know about me is that I am also passionate about the isiXhosa language. I have been studying it for the past two years and I love its richness of sound and expression!
With the help of my amazing isiXhosa teacher, Sibulele Magini, the children’s Loving-Kindness Meditation is now available in isiXhosa on the Mindful Minis YouTube channel.
Healing the world, one child at a time.
You can find this meditation and others at https://www.youtube.com/c/MindfulMinis
I am so excited to let you know that the guided visualisation, The Climbing Tree, is now available in Afrikaans on the Mindful Minis YouTube channel youtube.com/c/MindfulMinis.
Watch this space for many more translations of the Mindful Minis guided visualisations.
The next one will hopefully be a Loving-Kindness meditation translated into isiXhosa.
New guided visualisation available on YouTube:
This one is for preschoolers and young children. It uses the idea of a snowman’s body melting into the snow to help the child relax and let go.
The music used might be recognized by some of you as it is Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt from the Selfish Giant. A beautiful melody.

This one is for you, the parents! And any teenage children that you might have.
A guided visualisation that invites you relax and let go by using the beach and the ocean as a focus.
Walking along a beach can be a rich sensory experience: noticing the feel of the sand on your bare feet; breathing in the salty air; listening to the sound of the waves breaking on the shore. By using our senses, we can ground ourselves in the present moment.
This visualisation was inspired by a participant, Louisa Maritz, who joined the first ever Mindful Minis Adult Training course that I led.
I have uploaded it to the Mindful Minis YouTube channel for all of you to enjoy – The Beach.
