I consider myself a bit of a "Big Feeling Expert"......

(expert because I have a lot of them!)

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

Being 'Boots' is a dream job for me.

  • I get to spend every day with kids 

  • I get to travel the world doing thousands of concerts, meeting thousands of families. 

  • I have had the opportunity to film and perform with hugely inspirational people:  "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!

  • ......but the best part is always the kids: Their hugs, Their smiles, Their giggles,  hearing what they have to say. I just love them so much.

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

(tbh i hate it...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.

My journey into Mindfulness and Meditation showed me that I get to choose how I feel rather than spending my time in anxious, stressed-out land! 

But it's more than that.

I started living life differently.

I started adding meditation and mindfulness into every moment.

...it changed my life so much that I want to share it with everyone.

I got so excited to share this way of living with kids, with families that I created The Big Heart Journey. 

This is our one life.

Let's live it with more ease, more love and more joy.

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 kids how to stop, focus and just breathe could be one of the greatest gifts you could give them" 

 

But getting your kids to sit still and breathe is no easy feat.

So, we have created a very effective combination...

 

Magic happens when you mix Meditation with Movement and...

A Best Friend. 

 

Meet Taes: Big Heart Journey Creator

“Taes is truly iconic, a new age Mr. Rogers. Her meditations will touch your heart in ways few people can. ”

(Ty Wenzel, Owner and Creator of Dreamy Kid App ) 

Taes has created a magical & successful career grounded in her love for children, & her deep desire to help kids feel seen, heard & loved for exactly who they are.

A little more on Taes... 

    • Also known as the “Boots” half of JUNO Award-winning children’s super-duo of Canadian Music, “Splash’N Boots.”
    • She’s performed 900+ live concerts for families around the world
    • She’s written and filmed 100+ episodes of their original TV show ‘The Big Yellow Boot’.

Taes has devoted the last 5+ years to exploring & studying meditation, mindfulness & dance. Taes realized that traditional notions of meditation/mindfulness were not accessible, realistic, or ‘fun’ for kids. Her personal journey into meditation/mindfulness & continued research in this area, inspired Taes to create a program for children & their families which re-invents traditional practices of meditation/mindfulness & gives them a magical spin...
