Mindful Kids & Teens
"If every 8 year old in the world is taught
, we will eliminate violence from
the world within
- Dalai Lama
Children and youth experience a lot of pressure in their day-to-day lives. Yet schools’ focus on academics from an early age often doesn’t leave much time for teaching social and emotional skills.
Through our mindfulness program for kids and teens we want to better prepare them for life and its varied challenges.
We focus on how to manage emotions and build strong self-awareness. Our kids and teen’s courses are age-appropriate. In a practical and playful way kids and teens learn to train their attention and concentration, to cultivate empathy and manage their emotions.
Here's what are amazing clients have to say about our Kids & Teens Programs.
My experience with Mindful Guatemala has been through a course my son recently took. I enrolled him because he tends to lose attention and gets angry very easily. And he has loved the course. I also received feedback during the course and afterwards, people would comment on my son being more serene and affectionate. Of course, it is a team effort, but I feel the course was very helpful for us. It motivates me to continue involving him in these types of opportunities. Once again, thank you Mindful Guatemala.
[Mindfulness] has helped me not be as stressed and control my emotions. Mindfulness has given me practices to relax, to concentrate and to learn to know myself better both mentally and physically. I didn't like the idea of taking this class to "help" me because I thought that I could control everything on my own. But now that the classes have ended, I can say that it is one of the best decisions I've made. It hasn't been easy and I continue to have my battles in putting all I've learned into practice, but I am confident that what I've learned in mindfulness is something that will help me the rest of my life.
I love the way Mindful Guatemala orchestrates their classes, and the patience they have in teaching both adults and kids. I have done all of their courses and have sent both of my children (14 and 8-years-old) to their classes; my oldest has taken the class twice!
