Calm Kids Mindfulness
The Calm Kids Mindfulness Programme is a 16 lesson fun, interactive with film clips, games, play and activities introduction to mindfulness for children, with a strong emphasis on experiential learning. The sessions build up sequentially, introducing and exploring new facets of mindfulness with each session.
The first six lessons focus on cultivating the foundational axioms of mindfulness: intention, attention and attitude.
As the course progresses, children then learn to cultivate gratitude, handle difficult thoughts and emotions and finally develop kindness towards themselves and others. Importantly, the key foundations of mindfulness – paying attention to the present moment with openness, curiosity and warmth – are continually strengthened throughout all 16 session.
The Structure of the Mindfulness Programme
The Calm Kids Mindfulness Programme can be broken down into 8 themes: intention, attention, attitude, gratitude, resilience, self-kindness, kindness to others and purpose.
