Joree is the author of Take a Mindful Minute, a booklet designed for parents and kids to develop a joint practice in mindfulness. This beautifully designed booklet, featuring original photography by Joree, offers tools for parents to develop their own place of peace and balance, allowing them the ability to respond and not react, respect their child’s sovereign nature, and find moments to empathically and compassionately connect with their child. For kids, this booklet offers tools to develop a connection to their breath, which will help them develop awareness, gratitude, compassion and authenticity.
