Let's do this!
This is what's possible for your year:
(a.k.a "Boots" from Splash'N Boots)
After spending 15 years creating television and stage content for children and families (aired on Treehouse TV, Disney Jr. Universal Kids, Sesame Street) Taes has branched out and created a truly unique mindfulness and meditation program for families based on a deep love for children and desire to support their feelings, their hearts and help them grow into empowered, confident adults.
A NOTE FROM TAES:
For years, parents have asked me to help their kids with the feelings they are struggling with, whether their kid is being bullied, or they’re feeling frustrated, or sad … all the the big feelings. I've seen how hard it is for parents to watch their children struggle with their feelings, not knowing how to help. I always wanted to know how I could do more.
Meditation and mindfulness made such a HUGE difference in my own ability to move through feelings and manage stress and anxiety, I got excited about making a program to teach kids how it could change their lives if they learned it early.
I just love kids so much. I want to help them feel empowered and excited about their lives. It breaks my heart to think about kids feeling alone and having nobody to talk to. I want to be that person for them.
I want kids in The Big Heart Journey to feel like no matter where they are or how dark things feel, they're never alone in those feelings.
I want them to always know that I am on their team, cheering them on, no matter what. I just want to be like a little heart on their shoulder whispering:
"You can do it. You've got this. You are not alone."
Our content is created to help your kids feel:
Loved, Supported & Empowered
Whatever is happening for your children: anxiety, fear, frustration, anger, sadness, trouble sleeping, disappointment, divorce, death.....through all of life's big feelings, we've got it, they will be supported here.Join the Family
Do you know, (like really know) how your child is feeling?
The thing about feelings is sometimes it's hard to share them. We all know the feeling of having something to say but not quite knowing how to say it.
When we don't share feelings they find other ways to come out.
UNSHARED feelings come out in LOUD ways:
- meltdowns, outbursts
- screaming, hitting, defiance
or they come out SILENTLY:
- difficulty sleeping
- withdrawl & pushing away
- worry that spins out of control
- physical pain (stomach aches, headaches)
The Big Heart Journey helps you put strategies in place to make feeling talks easy, so that your kids:
1. Don't hold their feelings in and silently worry.
2. Have ACTIONABLE ways to move through them.
In times of distress and uncertainty it's extra important to have strategies in place to make sure our kids are communicating exactly how they feel.
More of those super loving, connected moments.
We believe the things that you will remember most in life are the smallest moments....the sound of your child's giggle, the feeling of their hand in yours, the sound of their voice when they tell you they love you.
We are excited for you to have more of those...and be fully present and grateful for them as they happen.
We will help you learn the secrets inside your child's heart...no words left unsaid, no feelings left unshared.Join Now

Reports from Big Heart Parents:
Where our Members noticed a Difference:
Cheyenne feels confident and not alone anymore:
The Big Heart Journey has really changed my life and I think it will change yours too. If you’re feeling down or really really stressed you can learn a lot with doing the Big Heart Journey. It's for anyone with all ages and all abilities. The Big Heart Journey made me feel really confident and that I am not alone. I especially liked all the breathing techniques. Whenever I feel upset I can always use these strategies and they will help me with these big emotions.”
- Cheyenne, 21 years old
(Autism is her superpower)
Addy learned how to talk about her feelings:
The Big Heart Journey has helped me because it has lots of different ways for many different types of people to talk about and express their feelings. Before the Big Heart Journey I was not the kind of person to do that and now I am really good at it and I have all of these special ways. Just knowing that there are other people out there who really get me, it just makes me forget about whatever bad happened in the week.”
- Addy, 8 Years Old
Meghan says it's LIFE CHANGING:
I love that my family could start and end our day together talking about our feelings and focusing on being present. For my 3 year old to be able to name his feelings and discuss “feeling soup” (more than one emotion at a time) is life changing! For my 8 year old she was able to use words and activities to share her feelings which really helped to reduce her anxiety.”
- Meghan Boast
Jenn loves more patience:
Since doing The Big Heart Journey there is more patience in our home. We are still doing count-it and heart breaths a month later and it’s just as successful.”
- Jenn Dunn
