Comments from parents who have taken the class:

“My family had a truly great experience in the Conscious Kids class. My kids (6 and 11) and I learned not only how to be still and really listen to our thoughts, feelings and bodies (and the connection between the three), but also how to manage big emotions, get along better, resolve conflicts, and shift from negative to positive thinking. All hard things to do, but Lise made it simple and easy for us to get on the path to learning and practicing these skills. 


Lise set a relaxed and empathetic tone in each class and used great, kid-friendly visuals to reinforce complex concepts. We participated in different activities and games each week, and every class ended with an engaging story. We had a lot of fun together as a family! Even though the class is for kids, I got as much out it as my kids did, and the skills I learned are helping me to be a more conscious parent. 


I am so impressed with the quality of Lise’s original stories, and the thought and care that went into every detail of this class. My kids and I are using what we learned daily, and having the tools and words we need to practice mindfulness is a gift that will help us all immensely as our family evolves. The value we received from the class and the class materials were worth every penny. I highly recommend this class to all families with young kids!” 

-Madelen Ortega, Fall 2019 class


"As a teacher I found this course to be useful not only for students but also for myself as an adult. I was able to use previous lessons with the students I have been working with when they feel overwhelmed, or when they need help navigating their emotions and feelings. Helping children become more mindful will help them throughout their life!"


-Robyn, Teacher, Winter 2019 class

"We really enjoyed the class!! We came away with so many great tools to practice!! I appreciated it being a program for the whole family.  While all the teachings were shared creatively and as simply as possible at a level for kids, they were helpful for us adults, too.  I think we as adults benefit as much, if not more than the kids when we receive simple teachings.  And now, we have tools that aren’t coming “from Mom and Dad” so to speak, but for all of us.  Now we can all use the same language with examples to remind each other how to be with uncomfortable emotions and challenging situations." 

-Heidi, Mother of two, Fall 2019 class

"We thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and they really helped open the dialogue at home."


- Sarah, Fall 2019 class

New! Apply for the Conscious Kids Scholarship Program (for either the online or in-person programs) and your family could be selected to participate in this mindfulness course at no cost!

During this course, parents regularly share with me how their children are becoming less anxious, more confident, increasingly self-aware of their thoughts, feelings and physical sensations (and their meaning), as well as more accepting of themselves and others. I'm always pleased to hear that many parents / caregivers are also learning as much or more than their kids. Why? Because they are the ones who have the power to reinforce, apply and integrate this new knowledge at home. You as the parent / caregiver are the one who really allows sustainable, long-term positive changes to take root within your family. This results in improved communication, a better understanding of each other and a more harmonious, happy family. 


Over and over, I see how truly life-changing it is for families to learn about mindfulness and emotional intelligence. I'd like to make this course accessible to as many families as possible, therefore I am offering one fully-paid scholarship to a family who would like to participate in the 10-week program that starts in April 2020 here in Edmonton, and I'm also offering Conscious Kids Online - Level 1 - to a few families or organizations from anywhere in the world. If financial restrictions are holding you back from signing your family up for this course, this scholarship program is for you! Click on the blue button above to apply for the Conscious Kids Scholarship Program. The selected families will be announced on our Facebook page and contacted in early April, 2020. Good luck!

What people are saying about the Conscious Kids Program...

"I'm helping to spread the word about Conscious Kids. Spiritual awareness starts at a young age, and I love to see families working to raise their consciousness -together!"


-James Van Praagh (USA)/

"What you are doing is absolutely wonderful! It's in alignment with my vision for emotional and conscious intelligence for children and young adults."

-Isira, Spiritual teacher and author (Australia)/


"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!"​

-Nicolle Nattras (Vancouver Island, BC)/ 


"Imagine navigating your way in a foreign land without a map or anyone else to guide you or point you in the right direction. Well, it can be a very hard and difficult experience. Navigating through life can be equally if not more perilous, and this is why giving your child a roadmap helps. Lise Villeneuve has designed one such map in the form of this course that you may consider gifting your child." 


-Suzy Singh (New Delhi, India)/


"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)

"There is a great need for Conscious Kids in Greece. It will greatly enrich our lives. An enormous Thank You!"

-Sonja Norman, Athens, Greece
