"Mindfulness-based Practices for the Classroom"
“Mindfulness is a practice that can help students of all ages tune their instrument of learning. By that, I mean their entire being- body, mind, heart, and brain as well as their relationships among themselves as learners.” - Jon Kabat-Zinn, Founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.
Children today are faced with more distractions and stressors from their overstimulated external environment, than ever before. This is having a detrimental effect on their resilience, emotional regulation and overall wellbeing. As a result, many children are experiencing high levels of stress and have difficulty concentrating both at home and in school. Mindfulness-based approaches are practices that can help children of all ages develop self-awareness, resilience and positive emotional wellbeing in order to deal with the challenges, stressors and disappointments they experience in life. These practices are well-suited for the classroom and can include short mindful movements, breathwork, listening activities and longer, formal meditations. This course will equip you with skills and resources that will allow you to easily integrate mindfulness-based approaches into your classroom on a daily basis.
