Mindful Kids and Teens Short Courses
Intro to Mindfulness
In this 2 1/2 hour workshop, teens (13 – 18yo) are introduced to mindfulness – what it is; why elite sports people, musicians, and corporations use mindfulness to enhance performance; and how it can help to reduce stress and increase enjoyment of life.
Following on from this, there is an introduction to mindful communication and we workshop how to communicate mindfully in tricky situations to increase our chances of being heard and understood.
Mindfulness with Nature
A fun two days where children learn mindfulness skills which they practice in nature – listening walks in the paddocks, mindful eating while picnicking under a tree, awareness of body sensations walking up the hill, and learning from being with the llamas.
Mindfulness skills help with paying attention, self-awareness, self-regulation, and enjoying life.
These two days are best suited to children 7 – 12yo.
Location: Black Hill, NSW (between Maitland and Newcastle) on a beautiful 50 acre llama farm.
Parents are welcome to stay and share this experience with their child/children for no additional fee.
Please contact Kara if you would like to organise a course for your child and their friends (minimum 8).
Please note that the mindfulness training Kara offers is educational rather than therapeutic.
It does not constitute clinical treatment but is a sharing of mindfulness techniques to support children in developing their own practice in daily life.
