We define mindfulness as inner education. When we practice mindfulness, we become students of our present moment experience. Mindfulness supports us in:
- Understanding and training our attention.
- Noticing our thoughts, emotions, and feelings with more clarity and learning to relate to them in a healthier way.
- Discerning the patterns of our mind and intentionally cultivating qualities and habits that are more aligned with our values.
- Learning how to better connect and empathize with others.
- Developing more awareness of our relationship with our environment.
A growing body of research and science supports what mindfulness practitioners have known for centuries: that mindfulness practice is a key ingredient to leading a happier, more purposeful life.
Mindfulness has the power to improve the well-being of students, strengthen school communities, and transform our society.
