The program founder, Lorraine E Murray, has 3 published books which helped create the Connected Kids programme.
los first book ‘Niños tranquilos‘ is translated into 6 languages and is an ideal beginners guide on how to teach kids and teens meditation skills.
The second book, ‘Connected Kids’ helps people develop a comprehensive ‘toolkit’ of meditation ideas and practices. It is based on pilot studies we conducted with children on the spectrum or other forms of SEN. This evidence led to the accredited, certified international training programme.
The third book “Robbie and Jess”, published in December 2022, is a fictional book based on Lorraine’s experience as a foster mum.
Lorraine and her husband have fostered 17 children – aged 3 to 15. This book helps children with trauma learn mindful skills through the story of a boy in care who meets a ‘mindful’ dog called Jess.
Connected Kids reputation grows from a commitment to lifelong learning; giving people the skills and support they need to teach meditation whether for family or professional intentions.
We take a child-centered approach which ensures that our accredited meditation teachers help young people of all ages and abilities – including those with autism, SEN, ADHD and trauma.

This depends on the delivery style of the course you choose...
Option 1 - online courses (self study) are 'go at your own pace' - so the minimum would be 6 hours of study for the foundation (beginners). The professional training includes an additional 19 hours (self paced)
Option 2 - the in-person workshops range from 1 (foundation) to 3 days (professional - automatically includes foundation)
The foundation level is the beginners level - assumes that you have little or no experience of meditation. At this level you can teach in a non-professional capacity (eg family/friends).
The professional course is designed to help you train as a certified meditation teacher for kids and teens - including those with more complex needs (*autism, SEN, adhd or trauma). It automatically includes the foundation stage (regardless of experience).
*If you have a child with complex needs, you could take the foundation course and complement it with our 2nd book 'Connected Kids' which focuses on teaching young people on the spectrum/ADHD.
