Develop the professional skills to help children thrive
Meditation has come a long way since we created the Connected Kids programme. When we started out (nearly 20 years ago) meditation wasn’t offered to young people.
That didn’t make sense to us…something had to change.
Connected Kids has helped shape a new landscape with our international training programme.
We are a key contributor to pioneering mindful skills for young people that help them access some peace of mind and peace of heart.
There are Connected Kids Tutors working worldwide, professionally trained to offer children meditation and mindfulness skills.
Our professional meditation teachers develop unique skills – they learn to help teach toddlers to teens and children with SEN or trauma how to meditate so that they can experience healing and balance.
We specialise in working from a heart-centered space. Combining the researched, benefits of meditation with a practical, realistic approach that connects to the essence of that young person’s energy.
We blend the heart and the head so we meet children where they need us to be – and teach them meditation skills that connect to their interests, their needs and their abilities.
It’s a special programme for special people. It’s more than just a course. It’s a personal development journey for all our teachers who have become meditation teachers for young people.
We hope you can join us and become a pioneer of peace.
