The Mindful Garden Educational Programs

Mindfulness through Nature Educational Programs for Children, Teenagers, Teachers, Parents and Careers

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.

Mindful Tree Program

The Mindful Tree Program has been designed to help children navigate through the challenges of a stressful moment and bring them back into balance. It is to help them when they are ungrounded and finding it hard to concentrate and focus both at home and at school.

There are many reasons why a child may be having problems with their focus, attention, and concentration. It could be lack of sleep or nutrition. They may not be feeling well, having a growth spurt, or dealing with environmental issues. By helping a child to calm, center and balance themselves they can then focus and concentrate more, which will bring increased success in life and school, and this will have a natural knock-on effect for their confidence and self-esteem.

Learning can be very challenging when they are lacking concentration skills. So, by learning and using this technique which will promote balance in your child/children, they will be able to calm down and have an increased attention span.

Guided Visualizations

We have put together five guided meditations and two Mindfulness in Nature meditations to compliment the Mindful Tree Program. These have been designed to help Parents, Teachers, Caregivers, and Hospitals.

Our two Mindfulness in Nature live nature videos can be used alone or as a wonderful family tool, reminding us to slow down and be present with the natural world. You can follow the fish in the ocean, the flow of a river trickling over stones, or the sun coming through the trees. With these are simple but powerful mindful exercises, you use your focused awareness, investigating awareness, less awareness, or natural awareness, to bring in that mindful moment.

These videos are especially wonderful for those who are housebound or in the hospital, allowing them to still be able to connect energetically and to appreciate the beauty of the trees, plants, and natural settings that Mother Earth gives to us from their homes or beds.

Terri also guides you through each moment of nature. They are perfect for when you want to practice mindfulness while feeling that strong awareness of the nature, sounds and colours of Mother Earth all around us. They are created to connect you deeply and intuitively to Mother Nature.

My Magical Tree Book Plus Guided Visualization

My Magical Tree is a tool for emotional wellbeing. It is a magical adventure that will take your child onto a profound journey into a world of imagination, creativity, and positivity. Each page takes them into the roots of an imaginary tree, helping them to become more calm, relaxed, balanced, focused and grounded by tapping into your child’s unique powers of imagination and creativity.

Go through each page of the book with your child make the choices together so that you can discuss the translations of each choice at the end. The translations will give you ideas on how to help. The child may even feel safe enough to open up to you and so it will help if you let all the conversion mostly come from them and just see where it goes. The choices present what the child is experiencing in this moment. Each time they go through it, they will most likely choose completely different things, and this is because emotionally they will be in a different place. If you have a child who always chooses the same thing, then you could maybe work with a second choice and see if that is a better reflection of what is going on.

Use the book as often as you like. When used regularly, it can really help the child to grasp the technique so they can use it in their day to day lives even when the book is not in hand. It can become a lifelong skill.

The Mindful Tree Book helps get to the heart of the child’s emotions. Teaching them how they can choose to change their thoughts from negative to positive, a new way to manage and explore their emotions.
