About The KOTUS Method

The KOTUS Method was created by Elizabeth-Anne Mulhane in order to introduce practical strategies that focus on creating states of flourishing.

The word KOTUS is an acronym representing Kingdom Of The Unified Spirit. This method has been developed within the scientific and spiritual foundations of oneness.

The principles of the KOTUS Method include:

  • The KOTUS Method Compass Points – Through various exercises students embody the internal guides (thought, emotion, intuition) to confidently trust decision making. 
  • To increase compassion for others embrace the ethics of the golden rule – to treat others the way you wish to be treated. Develop moral living in acceptance of each other’s diversity and perspective of reality. 
  • Establish and maintain growth within a personal practice of mindfulness and various forms of meditation. 
  • Embrace being, belonging and becoming – across the lifespan. 
  • Learn the four foundations of mindfulness in secular and non-secular forms – through both theoretical and practical application and contemplation.
  • Integrate the KOTUS Method 10 well-being focus points to help guide wellness programs. 
  • Connect with and cultivate the mind’s eye to improve wellbeing at the subconscious level. 
  • Embrace the oneness through a scientific understanding of mathematical principles, vibrations and frequencies. 
  • Bring awareness to belonging to the collective consciousness in a way that cultivates the wholesome desire of world peace and becoming one human race.

We are excited about the creation of Flow Form -  we know it's new, it's innovative and its going to change the way we think about therapeutic movement!

More About Flow Form

Flow Form takes the student through a series of understanding form; patterns and pathways. The teacher learns to teach through working with the body and exploring its capabilities. 

Through the course you will learn to express and teach form through several modalities of movement, including Yoga, Tai Chi Qigong, & Somatic Movement. These 3 forms can be expressed or translated into the simplicity of stretching with breath (Yoga), gathering energy (Tai Chi Qigong), and self-expressive movement (somatic movement through Laban and Bartenieff Fundamentals). Together they create Flow Form. 

As we teach through the various modalities we are showing the mind mental pathways and patterns to operate within. The mind explores these modalities (or ways to move) and begins synchronising, or entraining with these physical patterns and pathways. Which the mind can then use to create new ways of moving through life. 

 

Within level 1 teachers will also incorporate StoryTime to further encourage social and emotional intelligence through enjoyable programs. 

StoryTime Themes create an opportunity for young children to also learn about our world.

Founder and Program Designer 

Elizabeth-Anne Mulhane

Elizabeth has always felt a profound connection to the divine, her spiritual experiences presented in both waking and dreaming states from a young age. 

Drawn to meditative states since childhood, her formal journey with meditation began over forty years ago as a teenager when she joined a local yoga group.

Elizabeth Mulhane is a somatics and dance movement psychotherapist and meditation teacher

No stranger to life’s challenges, Elizabeth’s quest for understanding led her to explore the teachings of various world religions. By her late twenties, after years of shorter fasting periods, she felt guided by spirit to undertake a 40-day/night fast. Through this enlightening and transformative period, Elizabeth deepened her understanding of the oneness, which she also went on to further study through a scientific lens.

Throughout life, Elizabeth’s personal meditation practice, coupled with her relentless pursuit of spiritual knowledge, became a source of solace, offering insight into her role as both a mother and servant of God. Acutely aware of life’s trials, she has come to recognise mindfulness as one of the most potent tools for personal growth, spiritual connection, and enhancing quality of life, both for herself and for others seeking inner peace and fulfilment.

As a somatic and dance movement psychotherapist and meditation teacher, Elizabeth is committed to supporting children and adults in cultivating a sense of flourishing. As such, she possesses a diverse array of credentials for helping others develop a sense of holistic well-being.

  • Over 40 years of practice in various forms of meditation and movement in forms such as dance, yoga, Tai Chi, and martial arts (including an intensive training in traditional Wing Chun Kung Fu).
  • A B.PsycSci(Hons) degree (2A) with a two-part thesis focused on enhancing well-being through mindfulness and sound.
  • Completion of postgraduate mindfulness teacher training through the Wollongong Nan Tien Institute of Higher Education & Emory University (SEE Learning).
  • Attainment of a Graduate Diploma of Somatics and Dance Movement Therapy from Tensegrity Training.
  • Four years of dedicated service as a volunteer Certified Cub Scout Leader with Scouts Australia (2015-2018)
  • 12 months of volunteer involvement with Sutherland Climate Action Network (SCAN), advocating for sustainable living in 2011.
  • Design, implementation, and teaching of extracurricular activities including chess club, science club, and arts and crafts group at Sydney Montessori.
  • Certified Yoga teacher (200 hrs); Children’s Yoga teacher; Brain Games Practitioner; Teaching with Music Practitioner; Pre-School dance Teacher; & holds a certificate in Fine Art.
  • Certification as a registered Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi Instructor under Master Wing Cheung.
  • Creation and delivery of transformative online mindfulness and meditation courses for adults, including certified teacher training programs, as well as the development of mindfulness-based initiatives tailored to children of all age groups.
  • Conceptualisation and implementation of her own mindfulness based therapeutic movement program – Flow Form (combining yoga, tai chi and somatic movement). 

Elizabeth teachers students on a global scale and her expertise is further evidenced by her participation in numerous interviews and events focused on teaching mindfulness, demonstrating her commitment to sharing the benefits of mindfulness with diverse audiences.

Course Reviews

‘I’m so grateful to have just completed the 8 week children’s mindfulness course with Elizabeth. I highly recommend the professional online course that’s so user friendly to work at your own pace. The course is enjoyable and informative not only focusing on mindfulness for children but also to put into practise for ourselves as adults while going through the program and life.

I’m a clinical hypnotherapist and work with children and adults, it’s a good reminder to stop and look at life through the eyes of a child. I feel it’s more the adult who needs to be reminded of the skills, the children are usually the mindful ones. I also have 2 young grandchildren so I’m now enjoying looking at them with a new awareness from going through the program.

I also like how we have all the course information still available to us in our file on the website beyond the program I can imagine myself going through the program again in the future. I highly recommend the 8 week mindfulness program to anyone involved with children in any way.

Thank you’

Sheila Henley

‘I just would like to say how amazing the Facebook group is thank you Elizabeth Mulhane! For anyone that is considering doing the childcare mindfulness course, just do it! I have loved every minute of it and I have learnt so much not just about how to support children through mindfulness, but also about myself……thank you Elizabeth’

Cath Howard

‘I would highly recommended this mindfulness course. Word of mouth is very important nowadays as more and more mindfulness courses appear on the market. This course was recommended by another colleague-who really raved about it.

I had already done a previous mindfulness practitioner course and I have been teaching mindfulness to children for a while. I did wonder how much new information I would obtain from doing another course.

I was pleasantly surprised by what I did learn from the 8 week online course. Not only did I learn more things about the teaching of mindfulness to children but I also learnt a lot about my own mindfulness practice.

The great thing about the course is that you can clearly see Elizabeth’s passion for mindfulness and children’s mental wellbeing. Additionally, you see the depth of Elizabeth’s experience and her knowledge.

Also, Elizabeth will go that extra mile for you through the mentor sessions and FB course page. She gave me extra support in my niche areas of mindfulness and trauma and mindfulness with teens, which was above and beyond the course content.

This course is really worth the investment and is delivered in an online friendly version, which keeps it interesting. A mixture of videos over 30 ones recorded by Elizabeth, a workbook and access to a 10 week mindfulness programme and many other useful materials. Including articles, activities, practical assignments, quizzes and meditations created by Elizabeth.

As a teacher trainer/ mentor I actually think that every primary and EYFS teacher should be doing this course as part of their basic teacher training – and hopefully one day that will be the case.

Imagine what that would mean in regards to the positive impact on children’s mental healthiness and the world. Now more than ever we should be prioritising children’s mental wellness.’

‘Thank you so much Elizabeth – For your support, for your time, and your kindness in sharing knowledge. This course has been so much more then I could have imagined. It has been a incredible journey, of self discovery.

Elizabeth delivers the information in such a way, I felt shifts happening within myself. I felt that I was slowing down in my very busy daily routine. I feel more present and have become aware of myself, our environment and all around me, on a different level. This course has help in my personal life, I am a mum of four and work full time as an educator, you have taught me valuable lessons on navigating through life. Here I was signing up to do this for my workplace, when it is so much more. I have implement everything you teach us, in the class, coming from a mindful approach. We learn how to read ourselves, the environment and children and how to make the changes we need. Thank you.

I believe our children will be the change, this world needs, and this course is what helps us adults, to arm the children with tools to become the kind compassionate, flourishing adults and to bring back the peace and love and harmony we so need.

Elizabeth hand on heart, the best course I have done.’
