We were fortunate enough to have Janet conduct a Professional Development with our staff to help us employ Mindfulness practices with our pre-school aged children. It was the most remarkable experience for all of us. Beyond her professionalism and obvious expertise, Janet exudes a warmth and generosity of spirit that set the most beautiful tone for the exercise. Though I know each of us was able to achieve something different and personal through the duration of the workshop, collectively, we all came away stronger and more aware. We have been offered a new perspective on the ways in which we cope and it has been an invaluable asset in our work with the children in our program. We are employing many of the practices with wonderful results! Moreover, we have made suggestions to families to ensure that we are all utilizing the same techniques to provide consistency for the children. It has been amazing to watch the transformation both in the children and in our understanding of their anxieties and fears. I would highly recommend this workshop to all educators and parents. It offers an insight and understanding that cannot be found elsewhere. A personally transformative experience that is helping to transform the lives of others.
