Can You See Yourself Teaching Mindfulness to Kids?
Take the Conscious Kids Certification Training and Start Teaching with Confidence After 10 Weeks!
The demand for good mindfulness teachers is high...
The emotional, social, cognitive, behavioral and physical benefits of mindfulness have been proven and it's no surprise that mindfulness is increasingly popular in homes and classrooms around the globe. Good mindfulness teachers are in high demand! There are plenty of mindfulness courses offered these days, but which one is right for you? If you are looking for a mindfulness program that is specifically written for kids between the ages of 5-13, (and you are in the Edmonton area) then the Conscious Kids Certification training could be the perfect choice for you!
"I have been searching a long time for a program that would take what I was learning myself - how to be a more conscious adult - and explain it in a kid-friendly way. Conscious Kids is that program! I was so excited when I found it! My eight year old son loved it! The follow up stories and activities really drove the concepts home in a meaningful way and allowed my son to experience hands-on learning. As a mother and an early childhood educator, I would highly recommend the Conscious Kids program to anyone with children. It makes the concepts of mindfulness, being in the present moment and learning about feelings and emotions fun and easy to understand."
-Kari Peterson, BEd (British Columbia)
What Makes the Conscious Kids Program Stand Out?
What's unique about Conscious Kids is that all the concepts are taught through fun, creative short stories and practical, engaging, hands-on activities. Conscious Kids has been taught in homes and classrooms around the world since 2015 and it really works! Parents, teachers and kids love it and many lives have improved because of it!

Why this is the Certification you want...
The Conscious Kids Mindfulness Certification Program not only gives you a deep understanding of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, meditation and spiritual awareness, but it also provides you with all the tools and resources you will need to effectively communicate and reach out to children and their caregivers. We all know that children learn effortlessly when they are having fun, and this is what makes Conscious Kids such a great choice for teaching mindfulness to young audiences: kids really love it!
You get much more than just mindfulness training...
During your training, you will be granted a license to use the copyrighted Conscious Kids materials for your own classes (stories and activities), and you will also receive detailed, tested lesson plans that will give you the confidence to start teaching your own 10-week program. Each week, you will be encouraged to create your own resource materials to support the lessons you will be teaching in your own personalized way.
"Conscious Kids has made a lasting impression on our family- it is a unique & refreshing curriculum that is fun, thought provoking and useful. This course has given my 6 year old a new vocabulary of words that support his emotional and mental health. This curriculum is a perfect fit for both home-school and public school. We were excited to do the activities every week and read the stories and submitted as part of our Social Studies component. Our advisor was very impressed with content and presentation of all. Thank you so much for creating this!"

"We have been extremely impressed with the Conscious Kids mindfulness class! My husband and I are learning just as much as, if not more than our kids! This is something I was never taught as a kid, it wasn't until I was an adult needing therapy that these concepts were introduced to me. I'm thrilled that my kids have the opportunity to learn emotional intelligence in such a fun, creative, relevant and interesting class! It's also given us as parents a framework and vocabulary to use as we're helping the kids navigate their emotions and interactions during the week. The class has been exactly what we were looking for and has been well worth every penny!"

Lise Villeneuve has designed one such map in the form of this course that you may consider gifting your child."
