What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention in each moment without judgement. It is a teachable life skill that can be integrated into the classroom culture to support students to learn, focus, and foster compassion and collaboration. Mindfulness supports teachers and students to co-create optimal learning environments.
We use mindfulness as the foundation for teaching children self-awareness, stress management, conflict resolution, resilience, kindness and compassion. We teach mindfulness skills to empower children to learn these valuable life skills, so that they are better prepared to bring them into their daily lives and relationships.
Experts in neuroscience and education alike are seeing the connections between calming the mind and cultivating awareness through simple daily mindfulness practices.
