Mindfulness Group for Parents / Carers and Children in Darlington

Children's Mindfulness Poster

Mindfulness for children, parents/cares, provides an opportunity to learn to be more mindful together. In fact, young children are already masters of mindfulness in many ways. Children live through their senses, and are immersed completely in what they do, and experience events as if for the first time.

These are all central attributes that adults re-learn through mindfulness meditation.

So, let’s learn from our little ones and help them to sustain their mindfulness skills to best prepare them for life.

Mindful sessions for families will be delivered over the summer holiday. This will enable adults and children to try mindfulness together in a safe and fun environment. Sessions are interactive, engaging, practical and suitable for anyone. They introduce the themes of mindfulness and provide techniques to try at home and top tips for parents/carers:
