About the Author
Wietske Vriezen was born in Wassenaar, Holland. She grew up there and in Scotland. She is a longtime practitioner in Thich Nhat Hanh's community. After having travelled and moved around a bit, she settled down in the city of Rotterdam where she works as a psychologist with gifted children. Ever since she was young, she has loved drawing and making little books.
In the year 2000 Wietske met Thich Nhat Hanh on a retreat in Holland and was touched deeply by the practice. Since then, she has spent time practicing in Plum Village and in the local sanghas in The Hague and Rotterdam. Also she has explored different spiritual paths, only to rediscover what she feels is a profound beauty and wisdom in the Buddhist path as Thây teaches it.
"The words may sometimes appear to be simple, but I discover more and more what depth and riches lie beneath when I really try to practice them in my own life. The practice brings me peace, joy, a sense of stability and a healthy direction to go in. I have also experienced how warm and supportive it is to practice within a Sangha, to grow together with friends going in the same direction."

I have introduced the book to 3 other schools who have chosen to start using the exercises at the beginning of each school day.
This book is a small miracle and I wish other parents would begin to incorporate the movements and breathing practice into their children's and their lives right away.
I wondered if the kids would think it is a bit TOO simple, but they seem to enjoy doing it. The movements don't require great flexibility/coordination/fitness, they are very accessible to all. Even my three year old joins in! Great combination of movements with a focus on the breathing. We normally do this after we do our eyes closed meditation/quiet time. I think it might help them get through that part a bit more willingly to know that there is also an active component to our daily mindfullness. :) Because the illustrations in the book are easy to follow I haven't used the CD. I also own and enjoy the pebbles book from this same author.
