The facilitators at The Young Minds Movement deliver workshops based around the psychological process of practising mindfulness in everything that we do. Our Facilitators encompass and demonstrate ways to approach life with acceptance, patience, non-judgement, and compassion for ourselves and others. These include tools for self-reflection and discovery, analytical tools in relation to social media, taking responsibility, for their own decisions, and body positivity.

Mindfulness is non-judgemental, (not labeling things “good” or “bad” but rather observing with a neutral attitude); and of stillness in heart and mind (though the body may be moving). Mindfulness is simply a state of mind, not owned by any form of spirituality or religious belief. We do not use mindfulness as a disciplinary tool, or to demand a certain behavior. It inherently includes the quality of acceptance.

Our facilitators are not therapists. Should any children require additional counselling and support, we have a specialized therapist on our team to address matters of sensitivity.
