Mindfulness In Education: Schools
Stress, anxiety and mental health issues are a growing concern for students. These concerns are associated with high drop-out rates, substance abuse and other harmful behaviors. To address this epidemic, The Mindfulness Center is currently working with public and private schools throughout the region to empower children with mindfulness skills. Mindfulness practices have proven to improve social skills, emotional well-being, physical health, and academic achievement, along with mental health, quality of life, leadership skills, and general overall well-being. The Mindfulness Center works with area schools developing and implementing mindfulness programs, teaching students social, emotional, and other lifelong empowerment skills.
We are now bringing this program to school teachers and staff in our 5-DAY SUMMER RETREAT plus ONLINE MEDITATION TEACHER TRAINING CERTIFICATION. Learn how your school can participate, or apply now to sponsor two teachers from your school to attend.
