Description

Indigo Commons is an organization founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that offers products to help youth with anxiety and/or stress learn and practice mindfulness techniques. Our pocket sized workbooks are filled with easy-to-follow activities that allow children to practice their presence and reflect on feelings and thoughts. Our objective is to provide a skill set that will assist our children through hardships, and help them transition into successful and happy adulthood. The concepts we teach and perspectives we introduce in our workbooks not only benefit the user, but also society’s collective energy. The more we can encourage openness, grace, authenticity, and intentionalityРthe more we can provide to our stakeholders: the kids, the families, and the community.

Mission

Our mission is to provide mindfulness strategies to children in order to help them manage thoughts and emotions and transition into happy, successful adulthood.

Vision

One day, every child will have access to resources that promote wellness, self care, and mental health.
