What is Mindfulness

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way:

on purpose, in the present moment and non judgmentally."

- Jon Kabat-Zinn-

Have you been interested in mindfulness practices but unsure of where to begin? Or, are you well underway in daily practice(s) and experiencing first-hand the effects on your own health, nervous system, and relationships? 

 

Regardless of where you may be in this, we are committed to providing you credible content and easy to implement practices that promote equanimity, as you manage day to day stress and meet a variety of issues in the classroom.

 

“In the act of teaching, there is significantly more occurring than the presentation and/or exchange of cognitive information.”

Engage and Practice

For weeks we’ve been sharing lead-up’s to an initiative coming soon to resource our workforce for the 2019-2020 school year. Our love-notes to you point to the issues of student stressors, how the brain functions under stress, and benefits of mindfulness practices for educators and other school employees.


Today someone asked us, “How many people do you think will really tune in to this?”


Here’s where we land: If it is only one person who leans in, engages, practices the material, and then offers a greater sense of awareness and equanimity as a result, for their own well-being and the betterment of the class – one is worth it. 

We admit we’ve never done this before…

We want you to know we have been working on something that by design, is just for you. And we admit, this is the most we have ever resourced a priority specifically for the success of our employees and the students you serve.


You’ll be hearing from us with more on this 2019-2020 school year initiative.


Watch for things like: “The Modern Student,” “The Science of Stress," and maybe, “What is Mindfulness?"...


As the time goes on, please check back to this category to review fresh content that will be posted every week.
