"Author Dr. Peter Mack has crafted an excellent toolkit which can be taken forward into any educational institution and delivered with confidence by those who read its guidance. The work is well organised to explain the concepts clearly, whatever your level of knowledge or skill with the material, and it delivers a logical buildup of ideas that culminate with some great resources to put directly into action.

One of the things that impressed me most (as a Ph.D. student interested in creative education myself) was the implementation of art-based methods of expression and mindfulness, which was a fantastic appendix of new ideas to try.

Innovative, inspiring, and future-focused in its holistic approach, I would highly recommend."

Clara Amazon review.

"As a mother of 2, one in his teenage years and a precocious 10 turning 14, this book speaks to me. We live in a stressful and busy world, with so many competing messages and demands. Teaching our young people to achieve peaceful tranquility amidst the distractions; and clarity of reflection is so important. The book is unpretentious, easy to read and offers practical perspectives, techniques and practices."
