Mindfulness for Young Carer's Groups
Children & Youth Workshop 


"Julie was fantastic when she came to do some mindfulness

for a couple of our Young Carers groups.


She managed to transform a group of teenagers from unenthusiastic at the beginning, to 'Wow, that was amazing,

I really benefitted from that!' at the end, as well as make mindfulness accessible to the younger kids with calming

glitter bottles and mindfulness musical statues. Julie created

a calming and inclusive atmosphere, and the young people

loved it.."
