The staff at Beginner’s Mind understands that obtaining funds for extra-curricular programs can be difficult, particularly for non-profit organizations. If this is you, Beginner’s Mind can assist in locating and writing private grants used to purchase our mindfulness toolkits-at no additional cost! We can’t guarantee funding, but will do everything we can to assist you in submitting a successful grant application!
What is a Beginner’s Mind Mindfulness Teaching Toolkit?
The Beginner’s Mind Mindfulness Teaching Toolkit is an easy to implement mindfulness activity kit with all the supplies needed to teach groups of up to 24 children, ages 5-11.
This toolkit provides lessons in breath work, gratitude, kindness, empathy, togetherness and exploring our world through the five senses.
Teaching mindfulness to children can:
• Improve self-control and impulsive behaviors
• Increase attention span
• Help to make peace with personal imperfections by teaching acceptance
• Increase awareness of the physical world around us
• Provide the avenue to be more gracious, empathetic, compassionate and kind to ourselves and others
Are you a classroom teacher?
If so, the toolkit can be used for year-long mindfulness implementation, but it can also be used for quick, on-the ready, activities to be done during morning meetings, transitions or to wrap up the end of the day.
Where else can our toolkits be used?
• community programs and clubs
• after-school programs
• summer camps
• yoga studios
• therapy offices
• children’s hospitals/clinics
• church programs
OR…Check out our Beginner’s Mind Mindfulness At Home Kit to practice with your own family or families your organization may serve. This At Home Kit is a much smaller, family-sized version of our larger educational toolkit! Beginner’s Mind could help in grant writing to obtain multiple At Home Kits for your organization to purchase for families or smaller therapy groups.
So, if you are a non-profit organization and are interested in obtaining Beginner’s Mind Educational Toolkits or our Mindfulness At Home Kits, please fill out and submit the attached survey. We will contact you as soon as we’ve had a chance to review your submission.
Congratulations and thank you for beginning your mindfulness journey with Beginner’s Mind!
