Renowned author and mindfulness trainer Eline Snel offers simple, playful ways to introduce kids to the basics.

The practical techniques Eline teaches will enable you to help kids cultivate presence of mind and body at home and in the classroom and develop more compassion for themselves and for others. In helping the kids in your life cultivate these qualities, you can receive these benefits as well.
