Mindfulness Programmes for Education
- Posted by wellness
What we do
We create “Mindful Generations” through our expertly designed programmes for both students and teachers. By teaching students how to stay present, they are better equipped to deal with the more stressful times in academic life. Cultivating an awareness of the mind, body, and emotional connection helps them to develop a healthy relationship with themselves, their peers and teachers. Adolescence can be challenging, so learning how to recognise negative self-talk, nurturing a growth mindset and practising self-care can help prepare for transition and unexpected challenges.
Our mindfulness programmes are also designed to assist teachers with their own personal growth and development as well as that of their students. Training teachers and staff members ensures that a culture of mindfulness can be instilled throughout the school or educational establishment. This approach encourages sustainable, positive behavioural change throughout the education system.
How we do it
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR, University of Massachusetts’ Medical Centre) underpins most of our training programmes, which can be tailored to support various curriculums. Our coaches are also trained to teach the Mindfulness in School’s Project (MiSP) curriculums – .b (“dot be”) for ages 11- 18, the paws b (pause and be) for ages 7 – 11 and the .breath (dot breathe) for ages 9 – 14. These comprehensive programmes are created by teachers, mindfulness practitioners and neuroscientists and offer life-time access to course materials, available in multiple languages.
This fundamental learning of mindfulness gives every student a psychological and emotional awareness that can offer genuine and lifelong benefit.
