Dom Watts

Wellbeing Coach

The Free Spirit Collective

I'm Dom and I'm a Mindfulness trainer, Wellbeing coach and ex-teacher. Working in education, I became passionate about exploring the mind and emotions with students and I have continued to develop this work over many years. We are undergoing something of a cultural revolution in terms of wellbeing and I believe the principles of mindfulness can be at the heart of that shift. My work is to bring these principles to children and adults alike.

Everything is Interesting: The Power of Mindfulness in Schools

For the TikTok generation, the capacity and enthusiasm for making real effort to learn is dwindling by the day. The constant barrage of short, stimulating, decontextualized media, coupled with an uninspiring educational paradigm, is creating the illusion that nothing is interesting unless it is shouting at you. Yet, for our ancestors, nothing could be further from the truth. The pioneers in culture throughout the ages knew that if we want to be inspired, we need to look and listen... preferably for more than 15 seconds. When we do this, we come face to face with the real mysteries of life which can set us up for lifelong inspiration. Join Dom, as he shares the power of mindfulness in education, which can make everything interesting.
