The Connected Kids™ Program

The Connected Kids™ programme was founded by Lorraine E Murray, an international meditation trainer with many years of teaching experience and a specialist in teaching meditation to kids with Specialist Educational Needs.  I found my training with the Connected Kids™ programme has changed my teaching of children and young people for the better and also improved my parenting style. Therefore I undertook to become a Connected Kids™ trainer in order to teach the programme. I look forward to sharing how I integrate the training into my everyday teaching and parenting with you.

This course trains you to teach mindfulness and meditation skills to the children and young people in your family or those with whom you work. Group sizes are strictly limited so early booking is recommended in order to avoid disappointment. You can take the course face-to-face and online over Zoom (see details below).

It is also the first step if you wish to train to become a professional teacher of meditation for kids, learn more about how to help children with special needs, and charge a fee for your services. For more info on professional level please click here

The certified foundation online course is part of the award-winning Connected Kids™Worldwide Programme.

You will learn to teach children and young people (toddlers to teens) mindfulness and meditation to help their mental health. You will help them to

  • relax (great for sleep issues)
  • feel calm and centred
  • cope with change and transitions
  • reduce outbursts and anxiety
  • manage their additional support needs

The foundation level of our Connected Kids™ programme is right for you

  • if you are interested in learning more about how meditation works and the benefits
  • You’ll learn useful self-care mindfulness techniques to support your well being
  • if you want to train to become a professional teacher of meditation for kids – this is the first step

Online training

In addition to face-to-face training there is also the opportunity to take the course online. There are three live Zoom sessions where you will be able to interact with me and other trainees.  Session 1 of the online training lasts approximately 3 hours, sessions 2 and 3 approximately 2 hours. Access to a printer is needed for the online course as I will send out the resources via email. Group sizes are strictly limited so early booking is recommended in order to avoid disappointment.
