Mindfulness

For Children

We explain mindfulness as being aware of what is happening right now around them and within them, through their senses and feelings.  

Meditation

A technique that is used for resting the mind. It is not a part of any religion. The meditation technique used by Head and Heart Mindfulness is guided visualisation. This is a gentle but powerful technique that focuses and directs the imagination in positive ways.
