Why Mindfulness?

 

Mental health issues with kids are on the rise.
As we speak depression rates are on the increase, suicide rates are going up and kids are starting to suffer from anxiety and depression at a younger and younger age. Just a few decades ago the average onset age of depression was 29.5 years old. Today it is almost exactly half that: 14.5 years old. 

50 per cent of mental health conditions now emerges between the age of 4 and 14. Source: Beyond Blue Read More

  

Students easily grasp Mindfulness.
Studies in both medicine and neuroscience are shows a child's mental health and emotional well-being improves with mindfulness practise. Supporting and enhancing learning, emotional intelligence and social skills. Providing the best preparation for the stress and anxiety of high school, university and your adulthood.

 

“People who practise Mindfulness now have BETTER mental health than 70% of the population on average.” Dr Craig Hassad, Monash University

"I teach this because in my own life I had anxiety and also worried about certain things like dealing with difficult situations in my life. I wish I learned about mindfulness when I was younger." - Isabelle

*Lesson are designed to be flexible and easy to implement within a classroom setting or, in a more personal setting 1 on 1 within a practice or clinic. This is by no means a one size fits all program, what we have created is user-friendly and we would like to emphasize is that there is no one way to teach mindfulness. What is important, is we draw from our personal experiences, explore, and share our deepening practice of Mindfulness with colleagues and parents, and encourage children to practise their mindfulness and meditations with family and friends at home.

 

 

Kids learning about mindfulness

“In researching various school systems that have adopted mindfulness and meditation, we are learning that students and teachers are happier, more focused, emotionally regulated, calmer and less affected by stress. Schools also experience less bullying, and a more peaceful learning and social environment.”- Dr Amy Saltzman

Why Makes Our Program So Special?


Easy to Implement.

Our online portal provides easy online access to our evidence based early intervention mindfulness program. Included are teaching tips to improve teaching effectiveness and and letters for parents to encourage students and families to continue to practise their mindfulness and meditation at home.

 

Fun and engaging for teachers and kids

We don't want teachers and children losing interest in Mindfulness. This is why we encourage a pedagogical approach where every teacher develops their own way of teaching the resources. We believe we set the right tone in which to communicate mindfulness and meditation to children and our approach has a unique playfulness to it which can easily be defined by the creative ways teachers teach their own students.

 

Tested in class environments since 2017

Deputy Principal LISA W - LOVED your program.
5 Star Mindfulness and Meditation
"Essentially we LOVED your program and your expertise and depth of knowledge that comes with it. As you know it was very well received by our team and their students. As per our meeting at the end of Term 3, there is great enthusiasm to utilise your program again in 2019."

 

 

Our program can reduce stress in teachers.

It is not only our goal to see improvements in students mental health and, it is also our goal t o see improvements in our teacher wellbeing., self-care and teaching effectiveness creating a healthier and more positive teacher student relationship and school environment.

 

"Stressed teachers impact students stress levels through a contagion effect, and since students stress impacts learning, this can hurt the quality of education in the classroom. Students learn better in a climate that is more emotionally positive and less stressful, and past studies have shown a clear link between positive emotional classroom climates and academic achievement" - Jill Suthe, Greater Good Magazine
