My Mind and Me are a Non-Profit Organisation based in Wicklow, Ireland, delivering Mindfulness-based Well-being courses to Primary school children and Post-Primary young adults.
All our courses are taken from the pioneering work of youthmindfulness.org Scotland.
Our mission holds, that is the birth-right of every child in Ireland, and beyond, to have the opportunity to lead a flourishing life. It logically follows, that to lead a flourishing life, children and young adults must cultivate and nourish a sense of well-being. Hundreds of studies now show that well-being is not determined by economic factors alone and that beyond a needs-based standard of living, economic gain becomes a non-determiner of happiness. With this in mind, it is imperative that we teach our children self-regulation, emotional competence, kindness and compassion. It is these qualities that are been shown to influence well-being and happiness far and above the ability of economic status. The ability of mindfulness to cultivate these qualities is now an irrefutable evidence-based outcome.
