MEET SOME OF OUR TEACHERS BY READING ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE.

Laure Bouh

“This Mindfulness for Children course is amazing! So much content, and a lot more than mindfulness. Elizabeth is really going above and beyond my expectations, every time. I can tell how passionate she is about spreading the power of mindfulness and kindness. The course teaches us as teachers/parents how to practice mindfulness ourselves, but also how to teach kids. Her 10-week program is the cherry on the top! It’s ready for us to implement with kids 🙂 And kids love it! I recommend this course to anyone looking to grow their own practice and grow mindful and kind kids.”

Cynthia Hoffman

“I have recently completed the 8 week course. I found it full of information to implement with children and to deepen my practice. Elizabeth is extremely supportive throughout the whole process gently guiding and prompting. Elizabeth’s passion, kindness and caring way is evident throughout the course she has embedded so much valuable content within it. Looking forward to implementing the 10 week program with my children. Absolutely brilliant thank you”


Zoë Casson

“This was a great course and I definitely recommend it. Elizabeth was approachable and available to discuss any questions or to talk through something that I needed clarification on. The course was informative and gave lots of suggestions and ideas for my practice with younger children. Thank you Elizabeth!”

Lynda Goulding

“Really enjoyed this course learning how to take time and just be in the moment which I seriously lacked. Then to learn how to implement some fantastic mindfulness activities with my Kindergarten children has been very rewarding.”

 

Cath Howard

“Amazing online course! I highly recommend doing it, Elizabeth has literally changed the way I educate and care for myself. I never would have thought a course could help so much with all aspects of my career and personally. The course is user friendly and so informative, I loved the flexibility of doing the course online and I refer back to the course notes consistently as they have so much information and links to refer too. If you have been thinking about doing a course to benefit children and yourself this is the one to do!”

 

Karen Power

“I have recently completed the 8-week course. I found it covered a wide range of information to implement with children and to deepen my practice. Lots of support and so much knowledge gained.

 

Lyndsie Storer

I really enjoyed the Mindfulness for Children Course. Elizabeth is full of knowledge and is very supportive and encouraging💕

Michelle Arscott

The International Kids Life coach 2020 Stevie Gold Coach of the Year – Mental Wellness

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

No. We live in a quick fix society where everyone wants to achieve results in the quickest possible time frame. While there is plenty of other organisations that will provide you with a 2 day, or 2 to 4 week course, this will not provide you with what you really need. Research has clearly demonstrated that is takes a minimum of 8 weeks to develop an effective and long term mindfulness practice. 

Yes. I give you enough to give you the understanding you need to learn a variety of meditation styles – without turning your own practice into a listening exercise. To truly gain insight one must learn to meditate without external guidance. Formal mindfulness of breath practice needs to develop through your own ability to concentrate and stay focused. If you only listen to guides you will never reach the heights that a true practice can help you achieve. In saying that, I do provide more guided practices within the private group for those that feel they need them.

As the course progresses so too will the time you spend experiencing some of the various practices. However, you only need to try them as a way of finding your own favourite style of meditation. In this course you will be asked to establish a routine of a minimum of 5 minutes of formal mindfulness of breath practice, two or three times a day. If you can do this, you will have established a powerful little practice for yourselves. Additionally, you will learn to bring informal mindfulness into everyday living. And it will be your daily breath work (spread throughout the day) that will rewire your brain and give you the anchor you need to continuously re-establish your mindfulness, or present moment awareness.

You can take longer. The course is designed to be completed within an 8 week time frame. However, most prefer to self-pace.

The quizzes and assignments are not difficult. The quizzes are a way to consolidate your learning and you have a couple of assignments to put your learning into action. Additionally, your assignments are an opportunity to discover and develop your own style of meditating and delivering mindfulness and meditation.

No. This course has been created for teaching within a childcare or Preschool setting.

I have completed an honours degree in psychology. My thesis topic was on improving wellbeing through the use of mindfulness and sound. The course is based in a positive psychology understanding of creating ways of flourishing within yourself and our children. This includes understanding why you think the way you do and how to cultivate better ways of thinking. Additionally, you will also learn a variety of different styles of meditation to take your understanding of mindfulness to the next level. Moreover, you will also learn about sound and our connection with it, sacred geometry, the minds eye, transcendence, etc. I have been practicing mindfulness and various forms of meditation for a very long time. My journey has also included a great deal of informal study, contemplative meditation, and fasting for spiritual advancement. I have created this course to share my knowledge with you – to also empower YOU towards gaining enlightenment.

  • Establish and maintain growth within a personal practice of mindfulness and various forms of meditation. 
  • Embrace being, belonging and becoming – across the lifespan.

  • 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.
