We are delighted to share that Mindful Littles is once again a recipient of a 2023 Excellence Grant from the Community Foundation of Lafayette.

A wonderful way to add kindness and color to our communities while we shelter-in-place is by creating chalk drawings and writing uplifting chalk messages on driveways and sidewalks.

This meditation practice is a great way to make the loving-kindness meditation concrete for elementary school children.
