Creative Mindfulness Kids
This accredited training course will enable participants to train as practitioners in the Creative Mindfulness Kids Method.
The Creative Mindfulness Kids Method introduces mindfulness to children in fun and creative ways. Children learn how to calm and relax their minds, to focus and pay attention, to understand and express their thoughts and feelings and cultivate kindness for themselves and others through creativity, art, craft, stories, meditation, visualization and discussion.
A core element of this training will be developing and nurturing a personal mindfulness and self-compassion practice and this will be incorporated into each training day.
The training comprises of six days in total. The final two days will focus on introducing participants to the Mindful Heart Curriculum which contains ten complete lesson plans which can be adapted to teaching children aged 4 to 12 years and which is linked with the Irish Primary schools SPHE curriculum.
Participants will be awarded an accredited practitioner certificate in the Creative Mindfulness Kids Method once they have completed all six training days as well as the course assignments.
