Mindful Minds

We work with young minds to help them learn the power of mindfulness, the concept of time, and how our thoughts influence our feelings and therefore behaviors, through a series of virtual classes.

Mindfulness is the practice of self-awareness, self-discipline, self-love, and truth. Those who have integrated mindfulness into their lifestyle are controlled, happier, and healthier beings. It is the practice of being present, and aware of the reality of your internal as well as external worlds while being focused, calm, and accepting.

Being in a mindful state is living in your truth, having the self-control to not have an opinion, judgment, or criticism of what is happening, but accept it for what it is, unattached to the situation. 

Because mindfulness helps you be aware of your thoughts, you can understand where your feelings are coming from and have more control over your behaviors.

This program has been proven to help children with their daily stresses, distractions, and fears.

What is Mindful Minds?

Mindful Minds is designed to help children to be aware and in control of their thoughts, regulate their feelings, enabling more control of their behaviors, moods, and security through mindfulness. Teaching students how to live mindfully, managing their personal distractions, stresses, and fears.

Each level includes four 45-minute weekly virtual classes on Tuesdays, recorded meditations, mindfulness tools & practices, a journal, and a classroom that acknowledges and normalizes the lack of control we all have of our thoughts and feelings. A place where your children can ask their questions about how they think and react differently as unique humans. A place for your child to feel like they belong, are accepted and supported in being themselves.

Who is this program for?

This program is for children between the ages of 7-11 years old.

Children who are a part of any religion, race, nationality, political party, sexuality, or gender are welcomed. Children who live with anxiety, ADHD, or mild autism are all welcomed and encouraged to take this program. As long as your child can read and speak we can try our best to accommodate.

One of our missions is to be as inclusive as possible, to bring all shapes to union.

We ask that siblings attend different classrooms as we have experienced distractions in the past and found this helps the progress of all students.

Mindful Minds Curiculum

There are three levels to this program, the program is 12 weeks long. The goal is to integrate a mindfulness routine and practice into the student's lifestyle.

It takes 21-days to create a habit and 67 days for that habit to become automatic behavior. After our 84-day program, our goal is that your child will have these practices of mindfulness to self-control, through awareness, integrated into their lifestyles enabling them to self-cop independently with
their personal distractions, stresses, and fears.

Your child will learn about the concept of time; Past, Present, Future. What thoughts are, how to become aware of their thoughts, the importance of thought awareness, and what to do when they have thoughts that do not serve their best interest. 

Further, we learn the importance of water, water consciousness, the importance of sleep, and CBC (cognitive behaviour coaching) techniques for thought-feeling-behaviour recognition.

“This is the program I needed as a child. I believe if everyone becomes who they needed and created what they needed as a child, we can achieve peace for our children.”

"Mindful Minds teaches our students how to follow their gut, listen to their heart, and consider if their thought is coming from their intuition or egos, before reacting. To be aware that not all thoughts they think are true or even theirs. That it is okay, to not be okay - in fact, it's human and totally normal, that they are not alone. I'd like as many people to know about this possibility of self-control, peace, and bliss which comes from being in a state of mindfulness."
