My story

I have had the pleasure of  teaching Adults and children music and singing over the past 20 years. Recently I have seen the need for more integration of mindfulness skills into everyday life to deal with the increased stressors in our lives.

I spent many decades studying human behaviour, psychology, yoga  meditation practices, and music. After completing a Diploma in mindfulness and Rainbow kids Yoga training I really wanted  to develop a program to help give all children access to the tried and true techniques that have helped so many.  I have found that  Mindfulness, Music and Movement are a perfect combination of fun and effective tools to help us grow, heal and achieve peace and harmony in our lives. I believe that the The Rainbow Frog Mindfulness program and resources has something to offer everyone who takes the journey.

The inspiration for the book came from a guided meditation I made up at the end of one of my classes to help the children with relaxation. As I wrote it down it came out as a poem, to which I thought "this could be a book". From there I followed the idea and  engaged  Daria DiCieli, who is a talented watercolor artist  and designer to work with me on the project.  I was so excited to hear her response to my story and ideas and this encouraged me greatly.  Seeing the pages come alive with so much beautiful colour has been such a joy. We both share the same desire to bring peace and joy into the world. I see her beautiful spirit,  infused in the illustrations.  The self publishing journey has been challenging and it has taken 3 years to complete. There is more to be done as I believe this book and program including the songs could be perfect for classrooms and early learning centres. I am looking forward to sharing the program and potential outcomes with teachers through PD sessions, as well as offering classes for childrens and caregivers. I am excited about finishing the songs for the album and hearing the children sing them.

There is a  second book coming  which I will  begin working on  next year. Watch this space !

"All children have the right to feel safe,

and have access to the resources they need to thrive in life"
