The Owl and the Guard Dog | Cosmic Kids Zen Den
A fun explanation of one of the key principles in mindfulness and happiness.
Jaime tells a story from a childhood math lesson, to illustrate how the amygdala (our 'guard dog') can be so good at protecting us - a little TOO good - that it stops the thinking part of our brain (our 'owl' - the pre-frontal cortex) from doing its work!
Designed to help kids aged 5+ start to understand mindfulness.
