  • Ivy Child International provides our scholars and staff with a refreshing set of meaningful tools and strategies that can be employed each day. Our community tormented with trauma, homelessness, domestic abuse, substance abuse, divorce, and other "isms", were incredibly grateful for multiple workshops on mindfulness, self- regulation skills, and joy.

  • Ivy Child International offers mindfulness workshops for our staff as part of our wellness offerings. The style of programs are focused on providing a number of very practical, hands-on tools. Ivy Child facilitators are not only skilled but exude warmth and calmness which immediately puts people at ease. The team is very knowledgeable about the subject of mindfulness but doesn’t overwhelm with information; rather they provide a number of very practical, hands-on tools. Ivy Child encourages questions and comments and patiently responds to all. The sessions are delightful.
