The free Mindful Family app introduces your family to the practice of meditation. Included are guided meditations to help your child gently process their experiences. They will learn to use breathing to restore emotional balance and to locate and release emotional stress in the body.
Mindful Family also includes:
A Meditation Bell to increase focus and awareness
Three relaxing nature tracks: Gentle Waves, Sunset by the Sea, and Waves and Birds
Mindful Family offers additional mediations as in-app purchases including five different Goodnight mediations for bedtime.
Mindful Family is family-friendly and appropriate for children 4+ years and older.
Why did we create the Mindful Family app?
Meditation's benefits are well-documented.
"When you meditate, you may clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress.
The emotional benefits of meditation can include: gaining a new perspective on stressful situations, building skills to manage your stress, increasing self-awareness, focusing on the present, reducing negative emotions, increasing imagination and creativity, (and) increasing patience and tolerance." - The Mayo Clinic
We imagine a future full of vibrant, emotionally and physically healthy adults raised with meditation. That possible future inspired us to create Mindful Family. We want today's kids to have the tools to process their experiences. We're parents. Each day we help our kids navigate the world.
Who are we?
Mindful Family's creators are Pia and Jannik Holgersen.
App producer and meditation expert
Pia studied Psychomotricity and Physiotherapy at the UCC University College North Zealand. Pia holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychomotor Therapy and Physiotherapy.
Pia is passionate about the mind-body connection. In her private and professional life, Pia has experienced and studied the benefits and joys that result from a meditation practice focused on the development of heightened awareness of one's body. She regards mindfulness meditation, “as a powerful tool for creating physical and mental stability, and a daily life with more inner peace and increased energy.”
App producer and developer
Jannik has developed and produced several different apps including Sound of Bornholm and Sound of Mindfulness. Jannik has years of technical experience working in TV and entertainment.
Jannik’s interest in mindfulness meditation has expanded during recent years as all humans face increasing stress levels and demands on their time; at work and at home. “My approach to mindfulness goes back to 1999 when I began meditating. I learned that children are born mindful, but lose that ability to be aware and at peace over time. My goal is that parents use our app to meditate together with their children, and as a result, their children learn to stay mindful throughout their lives.”

Ratings and Reviews
I love listening to these meditations. This is a great meditation app for everyone in the family to use individually and together to stop for a moment, focus on breathing, and calm the mind and body. The app contains a nice selection of eight guided meditations ranging from 4:35 to 16:30 minutes in length. All help to calm the mind and body. One helps to connect how you feel with what you are thinking about. Anchoring, finding you inner place, relaxation and calmness, and focusing on breath awareness are also included. Instructions are provided on how to use the app with children and how to help them process and reflect on what happened for them when they did each meditation. This app provides a great way to incorporate mindfulness into your life and your child’s life. The skills you will practice on this app will provide life-long benefit. The most benefit will be obtained by listening to each meditation repeatedly on a regular basis.
Quite Lovely, Thank You!
I got this app for myself, as an adult looking for more balance and peace in my life. I am now also using it now with my kids, have recommended it to family, students and friends.
This app is certainly worth the time and a great value for the money. Thank you for these offerings!
