Mindfulness in Education

We believe that bringing mindfulness into the classroom is the single most supportive thing we can do for our teachers and children to help them meet the challenges of the world with greater resilience. Now Children provides the platforms, structure, tools and training for teachers, school administrators, educational support professionals, and mindfulness leaders to bring mindfulness to children in a meaningful way. There is something for everyone, from training on bringing mindfulness to the (K-8) classroom to personal mindfulness space to build your own capacity and clarity. You can workshop specific challenges you’re touched by with fellow community members or attend one of our speaker series to learn from community expertise. However you decide to join us, the time is Now!

Solutions Lab

Let’s Workshop That!

We can work together for the good of all! The Solutions Lab is the place to come together in mini incubators and workshop real-life problems from the classroom. The issues are community-identified, and the process is mindfully facilitated to draw on the expertise, enthusiasm, and curiosity of those who attend. All theorized solutions that come out of the Solutions Lab are then shared with the full Now Children community, with opt-in follow-up groups to continue fine-tuning and evolving solutions as they are put into practice in actual classrooms.

Sense of Connection

When life shows us what it’s like to be disconnected from others, ourselves, & the planet…  it’s clear that it’s time for a change.

Fact or Fiction

How can we begin to build a better future when we don’t even trust one another? With so much polarization, it’s hard to discern fact from fiction –  especially in the digital age.

The Complexity of Bias

We live in a racially charged society that impacts children’s world views with a ripple effect of unequal opportunity and unnecessary heartache.

A New Story

The pandemic has provided us time to see that things are not working. Going back to how things were, is not an option.

Why Now?

Anxiety is quickly becoming an epidemic in today’s youth as they turn towards a complex and perilous future. Children will inherit a world filled with challenges like climate change, racial inequity, economic disparity, and the lasting, long-term impacts of the pandemic.

Teachers are challenged with preparing them to live in this reality and to stay engaged in their curriculum. Now Children is dedicated to supporting teachers and all who prepare children to enter a difficult future. We believe that mindfulness is the fundamental underlying tool that can support students and the teachers tasked with preparing them for the future. We need to be the change together.
