Kelly Brown

Formerly frazzled mother | Retired over-thinker | Self-compassion crusader. Mindfulness teacher at CultivatingCalm.org

Kelly teaches mindfulness skills to frazzled mamas with young kids who want to stress less, shout less and laugh more. When she can tear herself away from planning her family's tipi living adventure, you'll find her dancing like a dork, singing like a Snork, meditating mediocrely and laughing uncontrollably as often as possible. Kelly is the author of "Cultivating Calm: Mindfulness for Mums" - a guidebook for over-thinking mothers who want to quit shouting, find inner calm and experience more joy and contentment in motherhood (available from CultivatingCalm.org). Kelly lives in Warkworth, New Zealand.
