We believe it is possible for all children to learn in school environments that inspire greater awareness, focused attention, and action based on kindness and compassion. Join us as we share how we are guiding and connecting educators on a journey to transform schools from the inside out.

Our approach is unique in that we start with the educator. We train our graduates not only to teach mindfulness to their students, but to embody mindfulness themselves. We offer educators practical skills for self-care, facilitation, and connecting with youth, providing simple, effective mindfulness practices that can be integrated into the school day and adapted for diverse environments.

We will present our model for Whole School Implementation, share best practices in teaching mindfulness to children and teens, and talk about the general state of mindfulness in education and how it relates to school culture and Social Emotional Learning. Participants will leave the session with a greater understanding of mindfulness in education and of the steps they can take in transforming their school into a Mindful School.
