Mindful Kids is what was missing in the market: an easy to use, fun and inviting kit with many mindfulness activities for all ages and many occasions, whether it is to start the day with purpose and energy, to cultivate peace or focus, or to open the heart with love and kindness. Mindful Kids is what every parent, teacher, or therapist can use to guide those they care for”

These activity cards are wonderful for our exhibit facilitators to use for mindfulness workshops with families, or for getting kids focused before a field trip or summer camp. They are easy to understand, and also give adults new ideas for ways to explain, visualize, and build upon familiar techniques and exercises. We need more of these tools in our communities! Kids are never too young to begin learning to be more attentive and gentle to others and themselves
— Amy Kirk Duvoisin, Education Director, Louisiana Children’s Museum

 Logos_Reviewers_TimBernersLee.png “These beautiful and easy-to-use cards are wonderful! I have used them with young children, teens, families, and teachers, and everyone agrees how helpful and accessible they are. I love how the cards are organized into categories and bring simple and effective mindfulness skills into everyday moments to support a purposeful pause in the busyness of life. I will continue to use these in my psychotherapy practice, in mindfulness teachings, and with my own children, as well as recommend them to parents and teachers alike. What a gift these cards bring!”
—Jessi Heneghan, Atlanta Mindfulness Institute Faculty
 Logos_Reviewers_TimBernersLee.png “This product could prove very useful in both a school and home setting. Recommended especially for parents, teachers, and counselors to use with the elementary school children in their lives”
—Mary Melaugh, Marshall Middle School Library, Youth Library Services Book Review
 Logos_Reviewers_TimBernersLee.png “Who knew mindfulness could be so much fun, yet remain powerful at the same time? A truly unique adventure of self-healing, where laughter and an uncluttered mind are both the goal and the journey itself”
— Tav Sparks, author of The Power Within: Becoming, Being, and the Holotropic Paradigm and director of Grof Transpersonal Training
 Logos_Reviewers_AlwaysDance.png “Whitney Stewart has made mindfulness easily accessible by everyone. The simple step-by-step instructions make it possible for teachers and families to use the cards anytime during the day when a mini mindful moment is needed. . . I highly recommend these cards. I know they will become a staple in my own tool kit for working with youth and bringing mindfulness into my and their lives. They should be in every classroom, library and in any space that involves youth”
— Eve Costarelli, yoga and flamenco teacher
