The Youth Mindfulness Kids programme is a 16-lesson introduction to mindfulness for 7 to 11 year olds, with a strong emphasis on experiential learning.
These 16 one-hour lessons build up sequentially, introducing and exploring new facets of mindfulness with each lesson.
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 – i.e. paying attention to the present moment with openness, curiosity and warmth – are continually strengthened throughout all 16 lessons.
Sonia Yeandle has been trained by Youth Mindfulness to deliver this programme in School’s and Communities.
