It’s More Than a Course

When you sign up for our in-depth video series, you receive expert guidance on how to present mindfulness to children in a classroom setting. In addition to the course, you also get to join a thriving community of professionals dedicated to mindfulness and to classroom education. The community serves as a hub of professional support made up of people with varying areas of expertise all dedicated to mindfulness education. The community meets regularly to learn to deepen their understanding of mindfulness and of presenting it to children in a school setting. We are constantly adding new material to the community hub so you continue to develop your practice throughout the year.

Module 4: Cultivating Empathy & Well-being

This module combines mindfulness practice and heart practice. Its purpose is to offer a  set of lessons to address the need for compassion, co-operation, inclusivity, and respectful regard for others in the classroom. These lessons hold the perspective that having empathy for others in-turn cultivates personal well-being and happiness, making these practices holistic instead of punitive responses to difficult or challenging classroom relationships.

This set of lessons advances a mindfulness program, bringing depth and life long skills to any student.
