Olive's philosophy

Olive is passionate about the importance of sharing Mindfulness, and particularly the Creative Mindfulness Kids Method, as developed by Louise Shanagher, with a goal of making it available and accessible to children of all ages, everywhere.  Olive believes that every one of us has so much value and we are all so deserving of the experience of feeling safe and loved.  While Olive works with a wide variety of individuals, in both group and individual settings, the intention as she prepares for a class or session is always the same. Creating a space that is warm, inviting, where everything belongs, is very important. When we feel safe, we can begin to relax, and allow ourselves to settle, to pause and just be.  It is from this space we can begin to really grow our mindfulness practice and kindness toward ourselves and others.  The Creative Mindfulness trainings have really helped Olive grow her own awareness and compassion practices and now more than ever, she wishes to support others as they are invited to develop theirs. If we can invite children from a young age to practice mindfulness and cultivate self compassion, we are offering them skills and tools which will be of great value to them for their life to benefit their physical, mental and emotional health.
