Meditation & Inner Child Training

Mindfulness and meditation training for children is an excellent portal for allowing children to move within and to be present.

Mindfulness is a lot more than a strategy to manage difficult situations, it is a way to cultivate a more balanced relationship to oneself in relation to the realities of life. Mindfulness can better be understood as a way of being and living rather than a tactic or strategy for life. It entails many different facets and elements.
