What Is A Mindful Village About?
A Mindful Village is ultimately about restoring sanity to humanity – one child at a time.
It’s about making conscious choices for how we choose to live, and especially, how we teach our children to live.
It’s about breaking the vicious cycle, passed on to our kids, of emotionally and impulsively reacting to the insane demands of modern life.
It’s about creating a virtuous cycle, instead, of thoughtfully responding to life’s challenges.
Our commitment to replacing the vicious cycle of stress with a more positive, virtuous cycle is embedded in our logo – with its flowing heart of loving attention surrounding and nurturing a growing child.
This flowing heart represents a pathway of transformation for our youth. And this transformative pathway lies at the heart of all of our work here at A Mindful Village.
When we bring both clear-minded and warm-hearted attention to our children’s struggles, we can transform their stress-filled lives into one of strength, resilience, and well-being.
Yes, it takes a village to raise a child.
And it takes A Mindful Village of parents and professionals coming together to raise our children with clear minds, calm emotions, and compassionate actions.
The sanity I’m seeking to restore is simply that: being more clear, calm, and kind with one another.
That’s why I’d like to invite you to become a part of this growing village – for the sake of your child’s sanity, as well as your own!

Why Subscribe to A Mindful Village?
Because you care about your kids. You care about your students.
And so do I. (Corny, I know, but true. Bear with me…)
If you’re reading this, I know you’re a caring parent or professional who’s committed to seeing that your kids have the very best chance of succeeding in life.
I want that too. See, I believe that we are all children of a loving God. I believe that all children deserve healthy minds, happy hearts, and healing relationships. And I believe that any child can thrive when guided by conscious parents and teachers who appreciate the sacred gift entrusted to them.
And so, I’ve dedicated 25 years of professional service to improving the emotional well-being of children, adolescents, and families. My mission is simple: to help kids and their caregivers live more fulfilling lives – no matter what their personal difficulties or life challenges might be.
For those of you who are really into this, you may want to know that all programs provided here draw extensively from my ongoing post-doctoral training in the fields of:
- positive psychology,
- emotional intelligence,
- developmental neuroscience,
- integrative mind/body medicine,
- and the school of hard knocks.
Rest assured, I am committed to bringing you essential information that is scientifically sound, spiritually meaningfully, and personally practical. Otherwise, what’s the point?!

“It’s a magical world out there, Hobbes ol’ buddy… Let’s go exploring!”
