Young Anna is woken up in the middle of the night by the terrifying sounds of thunder. How will she deal with her extreme fear? How will she manage her anxious thoughts about going to a new school the very next morning? With the help of two very unique and quirky characters, Anna will learn how to practice deep belly breathing; she will discover how important her thoughts are and she will understand the connection between what she's telling herself and how she's feeling. Join Anna and friends in this interactive musical adventure that teaches kids aged 5-13 about essential and life-changing mindfulness skills.

Comments from our audience:
"It was refreshing to have a mindfulness experience that was silly and funny as well as intentional. My child loved the songs and the characters resonated with her. We still talk about Monkey Mind when she wants to feel more grounded."
"We were leaving the parking lot and the boys asked when they could go again. I asked them what their favourite part was and they said the story. It was a positive experience for them! They really enjoyed it. We talked about Monkey Mind quite a bit that afternoon. Thank you for providing this for children, your are making a positive contribution to their well being. You all did a wonderful job!!!!
