Though I have worked with children and meditation before both here in NZ and in England, your course opened more doors and options for me to use.” J Smith

I can’t thank you enough for the personal tuition felt from the online course.  Having finally found the time to complete the course in my own space I have found that it adds an extra dimension to the book.  I originally used the book and took what I could from it then opting for the online course I felt I had made an error as I may have benefited from actual taught course however your film appearances and mp3 snipettes felt as though I was having a personal tutorial. I actually spoke to your film footage.” AS, UK 

Lorraine will show you how to help children  feel calmer, more peaceful and develop their emotional intelligence to support their self esteem.  Plus you will learn more about some exclusive techniques that Lorraine has developed whilst working with children who have ADHD or are on the Autistic Spectrum.

“I found it all incredibly interesting. I have meditated for years and as a teacher I believe this is one of the most important tools we can give children. I found the information on meditation with children with special needs particularly fascinating.”  RN, UK 

“I really enjoyed the course. I loved the interactive content which helped bring the training to life. It was very helpful to experience the guided meditations rather than just reading about them in the book. The fact that it is self-paced meant that I was able to fit it around my other studies.” Emma 

I’m really enjoying the course I had a mini try with some actual kids a few weeks back. I was doing an art session with a group of 6 year 1 & 2 children. I tried doing a simple meditation before we started, just focussing on the breath. All the children participated quite naturally. The children all worked quietly, absorbed in their artwork and drew some beautiful pictures.”

“I would definitely recommend this course as it is pitched perfectly for both the beginner and someone with prior knowledge and experience. The mixture of slides, videos and mp3s makes the course varied and not at all monotonous. The information is conveyed clearly and with plenty of time for reflection. The perfect balance!.” R L, England

“thank-you so much for offering an online course.  I loved being able to do it at my own pace.  I would have finished it much sooner but life with two young kids can be busy and I felt good about being able to work on the course when I could really focus my energy and attention on it. I found the online course really easy to navigate and everything was clear.”   M Head
