Mindful Garden Program

The Mindful Garden Program technique is teaching the children insightful new tools they can carry with them into life. This is done through the Art of Learning to connect with the rhythm to nature, which in return connects them back into the rhythm of themselves. The children then become more connected and mindful to what is going on in their own brain and body, and they learn how to act accordingly to regulate their emotions. Finally, it helps them in becoming better problem solvers, better listeners, better leaders, and more caring toward humanity and for one another.

The Mindful Garden Benefits

Mindfulness helps children to be “in the moment” by maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of their thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. This is something that they naturally do when they are very little, but it is a skill that tends to get lost as they grow older.

Mindfulness is proving to be very beneficial for concentration and self-awareness. It can also help to:

  • Increase a child’s attention as they become more grounded in the moment.
  • Increase social emotional awareness.
  • Helps with anxiety issues, self-esteem, and confidence.
  • Leaves the children feeling calmer and more balanced within themselves.

The Mindful Garden Package includes:

“The Mindful Garden” consists of nine beautifully illustrated pages and on each page, there are a selection of choices. The children choose one thing from the illustrated page and their selected choice becomes the focus of their attention during the mindfulness session.

I have included a script to go with each illustrated page enabling the Teacher, Caregiver or Parent to guide the children through the mindfulness session. It also includes questions that can be directed towards the children at the end of the session for feedback on their experience.

  • Nine detailed Illustrations for mindfulness reinforcement
  • Six guided audio visualizations
  • Descriptions of the visualizations along with their areas of benefit
  • Scripts and Tips for Teachers, Parents and Caregivers for better lesson planning

My Magical Garden Book and CD

My Magical Garden is an enjoyable, interactive, and easy to use self-help book. A collection of illustrations and poems, this pioneering book has been written to help children, from the age of four upwards, work through their emotions and express them in a safe and loving way.

They are invited on an enchanted journey through a magical garden where they get to choose their surroundings on each page. To help the child and their parents understand their choices, the book’s authors have created an 11-page appendix at the back of the book. Here, they give an expert explanation for every decision the child has made. It is an extremely helpful and insightful tool for both the child, parent, and teacher. It offers the adult a unique way to understand what the child is going through emotionally and how best to aid them.

My Magical Garden encourages the child to tap into their imagination by getting them to create their own magical garden, giving them a safe place to go in their mind during times of stress, fear, or sadness. It also offers an opportunity to nurture the bond between parent and child. The experience is magical.
