Adam went to the playground to have fun, but instead of coming home happy he arrived with a mad face and a head full of angry thoughts. Will he remember Auntie's calm-down tool before it's too late?

When Adam stumbles upon Auntie meditating he's curious about what she's doing. Auntie immediately takes advantage of this teachable moment to guide him to follow his breath. Breathing techniques can build emotional resilience and calm the mind to help children to release the stresses of the day.

Sitting with Auntie is a story that introduces a simple breathing meditation to children, so they can learn to manage and shift their negative thoughts and emotions.

Jazmin Welch's beautiful illustrations bring to life characters who are inspired by gemstones from Michele Welch's extensive collection. Children, who often have their own rock collections, will love Auntie as a rose quartz and curious Adam as an orange calcite stone.

The book also includes notes and additional breathing techniques for parents and teachers to try.

She began her quest to learn more about stress and mental health after studying with Meditation Master Ilse Gordon, at The Centre of Awareness. Currently, she continues to learn, practise, teach, and write about simple, useful, meditation/mindfulness too...
