Creative Mindfulness & Empowerment for Littles (Age 7-11)

Spring Break 2023


Children need an understanding of self in order to grow a sense of trust in the world. When they know who they are and their strengths, they can connect more deeply to their sense of resilience & walk the planet more empowered.

School & life experiences can degrade children’s sense of confidence. Using children’s literature as the gateway, through meditation, guided questioning & exploration through art, they will be  walked through a process of reconnecting with the part of themselves that allows for growth, resilience, self-confidence & trust. Mindfulness strategies to counteract anxiety and aid in learning will also be shared.


There are 7 sessions in the series:

Session 1- Mon March 6th– 11am-12:30pm- I AM Resilient

Session 2- Wed March 8th– 11am-12:30pm- I FEEL JOY

Session 3- Fri March 10th-11am-12:30pm- I CAN IMAGINE & Trust

Price is $60 per session or $150 for all 3 sessions

**All sessions include art supplies & take place at Safe Haven’s art studio in St Lazare

(Sessions are limited to 6 participants in order to have more individual attention. Should your child require 1:1 sessions, that can be arranged by emailing Laurie at safehavenforest@gmail.com.)


Laurie McMurdo has a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology as well as nearly 30 years experience as a classroom teacher.

She felt it was paramount to good teaching to honour their unique essence and guide them to empower themselves.
