The whole program will be available for free through Centr. Hemsworth added that clinical psychologists will be writing and making guided meditation programs. The programs are meant for people of all ages but target mostly kids from the age of 4-10.
Taking to his Instagram Chris Hemsworth shared a clip of himself announcing the news. In the video, he says, “If you find yourself in a situation like myself, like a lot of people, where you’re having to homeschool your kids and you’re failing miserably. ‘Cause it’s not an easy task, it’s a very, very difficult job, teaching. And I have boundless, unlimited respect for teachers, globally, universally, and I thank them for that. If you are having this job, a friend of mine suggested doing these guided meditations with them [your kids]."
He added saying, "We have six [free] weeks available for you until April 5. So yeah, get involved happy, safe, lots of love.”
