GOOD MORNING AMERICA!

I don't know about you but
I'm REALLY tired of this Corona business
getting so much power in the world.

I want you to lead a powerful life.

but sitting here, talking and waiting and
stressing and watching numbers rise is getting old.

→ Would you like to learn how to be calm
no matter what is happening in the world?

Are you ready to show your kids how to handle
life when it 
doesn't go the way you want it to? 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says:

"The simple act of teaching children how to stop, focus, and just breathe could be one of the greatest gifts you give them.”

Parents often say:

"I would REALLY like to have all of those benefits people get from meditation (...the calm-ness and all of that) but I don't have time...  plus there is NO way my kid will sit still for that long!"

This is why we created The Big Heart Journey...

...to teach children mindfulness and meditation skills that will impact their entire lives. Sitting still is optional... having fun is not.

But The Big Heart Journey isn't just for your kids......it's for you too!

Mindfulness solutions for your kids BIG FEELINGS.

FREE MEDITATION GAME FOR MELTDOWNS

I’m Taes (Tess), creator of The Big Heart Journey;

An immersive program for families designed to help your kids feel, process, and move through all of life's BIG FEELING moments...

I consider myself a bit of a BIG FEELING EXPERT ( expert because I tend to have a lot of them!!)

I have spent the last 15 years creating television and stage content for children as the 'Boots' half of "Splash'N Boots"

Being 'Boots' is a dream job for me. I've been able to have so many magical experiences:

  • I get to travel the world doing thousands concerts for families,

  • We performed and filmed with "The Wiggles",  "Sharon and Bram" and "Fred Penner"

  • We won a Juno award "Children's Album of the Year"

  • We wrote and produced an episode for Sesame Street. (P is for Palaeontologist!)

  • We wrote a song with Alice Cooper!

  • Plus the best part of all: getting to meet so many children and families...!

So, as I was living this dream “work” life, I was also doing everything for everyone except for myself and I was running on empty.  I found myself having lots of anxious, not-sleeping nights and lots of BIG FEELINGS. To be clear, there is NOTHING wrong with big feelings. But at the time, I was a victim to them,  instead of DOING things to move through them, I let them have power over my day.

When I finally made the choice to DO something, I started making meditation part of my everyday life (even though I was not a big fan at first...I was sure I was the worlds worst meditator) but I stuck with it and what really shifted for me is that I got my power back. Power over my big feelings. I get to decide how I feel and that is not conditional on what is happening in the world around me. Meditating is now something I don’t go a day without.

However, for me, meditating doesn’t always mean sitting still and breathing. Sometimes I meditate while I walk, dance, write, move…I’ve discovered that meditating can come in so many different forms (I can't wait to show you)!

My journey into Mindfulness and Meditation enabled me to come into who I am, and choose how I feel rather than spending my time consumed by worries and anxiety. I am now committed to helping you, help your kids powerfully through the big feeling moments of their lives.
