Be the Pond | Zen Den
5 MINUTES • 5m 35s
A short mindfulness video for kids. In this episode of Cosmic Kids Zen Den I explain in a kid-friendly way that we are separate from our thoughts. They come and go - and we can observe them. There's a really clever way of remembering this - our mind is like a pond full of fish. The fish are our feelings. If we remember to Be The Pond, we'll let those feelings just swim by. Be the Pond!

The Owl and the Guard Dog | Zen Den
Jaime tells a story from a childhood math lesson, to illustrate how the amygdala (our 'guard dog') can be so good at protecting us - a little TOO good - that it stops the thinking part of our brain (our 'owl' - the pre-frontal cortex) from doing its work!
