What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is about getting curious with what is happening on the inside as it relates to what is happening on the outside… add in a sense of kindness and wonder and over time, you have emotional freedom. I am a practitioner with two decades experience who is dedicated to easing the suffering of the student, the parent, the educator, the athlete, the employee… all through the teaching of mindfulness. Intrigued? I was too. Keep reading…

What Mindfulness Is Not

Mindfulness cynics are right to be curious. As a 20 year practitioner, I seek to protect the integrity of mindfulness through delivering informed, high quality education. Mindfulness is not a silver bullet that can fix everything. In and of itself, Mindfulness will not make a school’s literacy scores go through the roof. However, if stress, anxiety, and other strong emotions are blocking the student's ability to learn, mindfulness practices will help them. These techniques teach students to regulate these often overwhelming emotions and go from surviving to thriving.

Why Mindfulness?
Connection is Key…

When teaching a workshop, whether to a teacher, employee, student or parent, my job is to connect with the participant, in order to discover how mindfulness can fit into their lives. How can it address the issues that they are facing?

Here’s How I Can Help

Guest Author Mad to Glad

I teach Mindfulness in a way that you can understand and use, in your life, exactly as it is right now. Mindfulness is a natural human capacity that is in every human being. It is a part of us that – in our busy 2018 lives – we have abandoned. I help you rediscover your natural human coping mechanisms, allowing you to not just survive, but thrive in the midst of chaos. So many have experienced freedom from the emotional rollercoaster ride. Join them by beginning your practice today, right now, in this moment. Make a connection to the now that your future self will thank you for!

“This book will be a huge asset in getting your child to focus and teaches him Mindfulness lessons in a non-critical, helpful, and interactive way.

The lessons in the book include using physical movements to change negativity into positivity, using his imagination and dreams to reach goals, using praise and unconditional love to boost your child's self worth and confidence and teaching him to stay in the present moment.

The book will help your child feel better about himself and in control of his life which will empower him to be the best that he can be.”

“This book is truly a gem! As a Stress Management and Mindfulness Coach, books such as this are hard to find. Sharing these skills with very young children is a powerful way to ensure that they will grow up more aware of the role they play in understanding what it means to live a balanced, and emotionally healthy life. The 21st century is complicated, fast-paced and sometimes overwhelming, and this book is a valuable tool in helping children get in touch with the softer, slower and sweeter side of their world. The book is written in such a way that children really enjoy it, each time it is read to them, over and over again. I bought quite a few copies and I give them out as a gift to my clients that have children or grandchildren. Love it!”

“Mad to Glad teaches our children how to think. Mad to Glad is an easy to read book that teaches children how to recognise what they are feeling. It then gives them the tools they need to overcome the negatives in an easy, loving and simple way. Its positive reinforcement of self worth makes it a delightful read and a very useful tool for parenting. Angie Harris is a Mindfulness Master who is truly making a difference. As Mindfulness Coach, I often say that we need to teach our children 'how to think' not so much 'what to think' and this book delivers big time!”

“I had the great pleasure of working with Angie Harris both with our students and our parents at Alphabets Preschool Center. Angie brought her mindfulness program and her wonderful warm personality to our site through the Asbury Park School District and we were all rewarded with calmer, more present selves.
I recommend Angie and her program to anyone who wants to help children (or themselves) be more relaxed, have less anxiety, and be able to better self-regulate (control their own behavior).”

“Angie Harris has volunteered her time to lead our community of substance abuse survivors in mindful meditation. I noticed such a big change in them once they learned how to be present. The tension that is so commonly present in substance abuse treatment had dissipated as a result of her teachings and their continued practice. We were very grateful to have her here.”
