This level of service option provides the most inclusive package to enable your school to improve its climate and culture.

Your mindfulness instructor will discuss this process with you.
It is essential for staff to understand what mindfulness is and how it will benefit them in order to establish a positive attitude regarding the program. This presentation is approximately 45 minutes in duration and includes the definition of mindfulness, benefits, research and neuroscience of mindfulness, a description of the program and what it may look like in the classroom. It also gives staff an opportunity to experience what a mindfulness exercise "feels" like so they may also receive the benefit of present moment relaxation and stress reduction.
This presentation is similar to the staff presentation. It provides parents/guardians the opportunity to understand what mindfulness is, its benefits, research and brain effects and what it looks like in the classroom. It also gives them an opportunity to ask questions about the program that an administrator may not know how to answer. (See FAQ page)
The program is designed for an instructor to present short lessons (30 minutes of instruction) as "push in" to an existing class (such as health or physical education) or as an added program to any curriculum (60 minutes of instruction). The mindfulness instructor generally meets with each class once a week for 8 weeks.
