The Story

Alfie and his Mum are going camping – to get away from everything. To have some quality time together. Alfie finds it hard to talk about his feelings. His Mum does too.

They share stories about Dragons! Scary ones, sulky ones, even angry ones – and they discover that their emotions, just like Dragons, are tricky beasts. Sometimes they need to be tamed, and sometimes, they need to be released.

Feedback from previous sessions

“The children loved the dragon breathing grounding technique. Many of them were practicing it at various points throughout the day”  Teacher.

The session is hosted on zoom to multiple classes and schools at the same time. A zoom link and a separate link to the film will be sent prior to the session.
