- The Wise Lotus Centre
For adults, it is often a challenge to manage difficult emotions. Yet there is often an expectation that children should somehow know how to manage difficult moments, despite never being taught how. Life can be emotionally very confusing for children. The pressures on children in modern society are huge. They are facing pressures that no generation has had to face before. Mindfulness is a beautiful tool we can offer our children to support them along the way. This lovely 6 week course for children aged 7-11 supports them to develop a toolbox of mindfulness skills that support their emotional wellbeing. These skills can be used in every day life and will support them to navigate through childhood and into adulthood with greater emotional clarity and regulation. We do 3-4 different activities each week which are fun and engaging and introduce mindfulness to daily life through creativity. The children will develop greater self- awareness, develop kindness and compassion, improve sleep, improve focus and bring a greater sense of calm into their lives. They will learn the tools to respond instead of to react. The course is one session per week for an hour at a time. The children will learn how to apply mindfulness to every day life situations. They will engage in a range of mindfulness practices, wellbeing games and creative craft work to support emotional wellbeing. Topics covered include: Raising self esteem Positive affirmations Kindness Self compassion Managing difficult emotions Communication with family and peers Sleep and relaxation Responding not reacting The cost of the course covers all craft materials and mindfulness tools for the children to keep and take home. The children will be given weekly activities to enjoy at home. If you have an anxious child, we offer for them to come into the centre before their course starts to have a look around, familiarise themselves so we can make them feel as welcome, safe and supported as we can before they start. Parents are more than welcome to stay if your child prefers for the sessions or you are welcome to drop them off. You will be given a form to complete before your child starts so we can support them as best we can during their course.
