Mindfulness for Children Workshop
* for ages 7-12
Scientific research shows that practice of mindfulness has particular benefits for young children in their primary school years when the brain’s limbic system – the one that controls emotion and behaviour – is still developing. Teaching mindfulness to children especially 7-12 years old will learn core life skills such as resilience, patience and self-awareness, which will assist them especially during their transition period from primary to secondary school.
This research-based mindfulness workshop for children will use the latest information about the brain to dramatically improve behaviour and learning. The mindfulness class offers easy strategies, and self compassion exercises for a more focused attention, enhance their self-regulation skills, build resilience to stress and develop a positive mindset in school and life. Join us in our meditation centre in London and let your children have fun!
Mindfulness is about helping young minds flourish in the broadest sense. For some kids, mindfulness may be about managing stress or anxiety, but for others, it’s about how they play on the sports field, practise music, dance or drama, or maintain concentration during homework.Richard Burnett & Chris Cullen
