Show Notes


This is one of our favorite episodes! Kelly and Kristi sit down with Mark Brown, the creator, writer, and illustrator of the Zen Pig series in this week’s Mindful Conversations with KAY episode. Zen Pig introduces children to big concepts like self-love, empathy, compassion, gratitude, and mindfulness through simple verse and charming illustrations. Join in their conversation to learn:

How Mark’s mindfulness practice developed

The creation of Zen Pig to teach social-emotional skills

Why children need inner harmony before they are able to successfully learn

Why Mark believes in changing the roots rather than hacking at the leaves
