Christina was my guest this time last year on the Abundant Parent Membership. Mom and mindfulness coach, Christina had a full arsenal of tools to support parents and kids in embracing mindfulness practices.  She generously spent two hours with me delivering fantastic tool after tool! While also spending time to share her own journey with shame and low confidence.

Mindfulness works! We are seeing it introduced to children in public schools, as well as playing a part in corporate wellness programs. The practices are simple the positive outcomes are undeniable.
