In answer to an intense need in the community, and in concert with decades of educational experience, Head of the Class Education Centre has created a new children's CD of mindfulness foundational techniques.
Mindful Me Foundations is a new CD created by Julie Fader that is joyous first step into the journey of mindfulness for children of all ages. If children are not able to attend one of our classes they can learn the techniques in the comfort of their own home with Mindful Me. The CD is available for download, on our website or purchase at Head of the Class.
Mindfulness itself is the practice of focused awareness in the present moment without judgement. It is the act of quieting our minds for a moment and being present. What is particularly significant for students is the ability to fine tune and strengthen their ability to become more focused in the moment and to recognize when they are not. It provides a structure for self reflection and a medium to respond rather than react.
This is the first of a series of CDs and electronic downloads. Next on the docket will be a French language mindful me foundations and a recording specifically for teens.
"Students will ask to have a 'Mindful Moment' with Julie. Its a go to when we all need to be mindful and still. The CD describes being mindful and breathing techniques in an easy way for students to understand in a soft, peaceful, relaxing voice."
